New, Improved RSS Feed | January 15, 2004

After looking at my stats, it became apparent that the majority of people read this site using a news aggregator. As such I've finally got round to changing my MT RSS template. Now you should be able to read full posts, with paragraphs, images and even links. I'm just too kind.

Keep up the good work Andy. You have one of the better blogs around. :)

Thank god for lists! I was starting to find your ‘in-ine’ RSS list presentation a bit hard core ;-) Not quite enough to comment on it, but maybe if you’d left it for a month or two…

I’d like to request a summaries RSS feed. I’d rather read things on your site, and a summary makes it easy to skim through everything in my news reader quickly, leaving more time to read the things that have caught my interest. Pretty please? ;-)

Hey Andy — sounds great, I did something similar with my own RSS feeds recently.

Another request if you will. As someone who doesn’t use a news reader I was wondering if you’ve thought about pinging when you post a new post?

That is how I get notified of updates (via AIM) and yours is one that I’ve been wanting to add to my list.

Andy, I read your blog through Mozilla Firebird aggregator extensions and the way it works makes it open every new link I click on, so don’t worry, I actually visit your website.

Perhaps also other people have similar aggregator.

Hi Keith, the option to ping is checked on my MT config page. I’ve just checked the site as well and I appear to be in there.

Of course you are in there! I’ve got you in my list now. I guess, for some reason, your site just doesn’t work with the little bookmarklet I used to tag sites.

Not sure why. ?
