RSS Feeds for DonationCoder.com and this Forum
« on: July 07, 2005, 08:16:16 AM »
You can now monitor new posts on this forum using any rss feed reader!

NEW: Add an rss feed for our blog!
http://www.donationc...0;sa=blogs;type=rss2
(without images: http://www.donationc...s;type=rss2;images=0)

To add an rss feed for just the topics of this official announcement section:
http://www.donationc...20;sa=news;type=rss2

To add an rss feed for the new twice-monthly official newsletters:
http://www.donationc...10;sa=news;type=rss2

Default rss2 feed for 5 most recent posts on the entire forum:
http://www.donationc...ction=.xml;type=rss2

(you can use rss or leave off the entire ;type=rss2 part if you just want xml and not rss)


Or perhaps you just want the last 10 posts on a certain forum:
http://www.donationc...2;limit=10;type=rss2

(you can substitute board=2 with board=X where X is the number of the subforum you want to monitor; just click to view that section from the forum and find board=XX in the url window)


Or just want the last 10 TOPICS (not posts):
http://www.donationc...10;sa=news;type=rss2



For more help and alternate kinds of feeds you can subscribe to, see this post on the simplemachines forum:

To help facilitate the use of rss feeds we will also start announcing in Living Room section whenever a new review is up or a new program is released.

If people would like to see a specific official announcement section of the forum let us know.

want to rss read the donationcoder.com blog columns?
you can't subscribe to the single combined column, but you can subscribe to the individual columnists, just add these urls to your rss feed reader:

http://www.donationc...mts/b_jibz/index.rdf
http://www.donationc...s/b_nudone/index.rdf
http://www.donationc...s/b_vrgirl/index.rdf
http://www.donationc..._tenseiken/index.rdf
http://www.donationc...s/b_mouser/index.rdf
http://www.donationc...ragonrider/index.rdf


[EDIT: we have discontinued the blogs as of 11/05]

Found out about this site through Langa a couple of weeks ago and just joined-great service!  I don't want to be notified every time a new topic is posted in the forums, but I do want a feed that will tell me every time a new program is reviewed.  Is there a way to do this?

Thanks,
Jason

welcome to the site jason,

your request would be satisfied if we set up a special section of the forum for "official announcements",
like new reviews being posted, new software being released.
i.e. just the rare occasional official announcement.

probably not a bad idea; i think i will set this up unless people would prefer i don't.

the other solution would be to use a program like website watcher (see our review on webpage change monitors http://www.donationc...bWatchers/index.html), and have it monitor the reviews archive page or front page of the site.

There is now an OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT section on the forum.

To add an rss feed for just the topics of this official announcement section:

Can someone tell me the URL for an RSS feed to get the last ten Subjects (topics?) in the 'Mini-Reviews by Members' Forum?

Thanks,

jdd:
http://www.donationc...10;sa=news;type=rss2

to get a different rss feed for the last 10 topics (subjects) from another section, just go to that section, observe the board=## and replace it in url above.

or use a standalone rss reader.

Shouldn't there be an "RSS" button in the header near "Home" "Search" "Profile" "IRC" ....
to this thread  ?

nice idea but we are running out of space for buttons..

there's an rss button at the very bottom of each page though - but it just takes you to this very thread :)

This thread has helped me again :)

I now use
Code: [Select]
http://www.donationcoder.com/forum/index.php?action=.xml;limit=15;type=rss2 to get the last 15 post on the entire forum.

The limit will most likely change though. Or maybe I'll try te feed for "all unread posts"... Anyway, I am again convinced that SMF is a very very good forum software! (Has anyone (mini-)reviewed SMF yet?)

Until mouser creates a feed for the Best of Blog, here is one you can use:

http://www.ponyfish....m/feeds/8678evDyoDwh

Sorry it won't give you any descriptions of the posts, just the headlines.


Mouser added an official one. See post below.
