  • The friends RSS is great, but could we have the name of the poster somewhere else than in the link URL ? e.g. in the , that would be great.
    • Ditto - mod parent up! ;)
      • Also, what would be cool is a (#) after the title to show the current number of responses.

        btw, i use Firefox's live bookmarks, which doesn't handle all that fancy dc:creator stuff. I doubt they'll get around to letting us format live bookmark titles via format() strings (i.e. "%title (%dc.creator)").
    • You do. It's where the name belongs: in the dc:creator field.
      • Oh, so I'll have to send a patch to the author of my RSS reader ? (I'm using snownews [kcore.de] currently, and it doesn't feel concerned with dc:creator.)

        (BTW I meant <title> in my previous comment, slash ate my homework :)

  • These are really good; they're a big improvement over the previous set.

    Any chance that comments could get an RSS feed? That's the only use case that keeps me in the browser right now.

  • Hmms.. I get some use perl journals via Planet Perl, and they wont show up correctly. It seems Planet Perl problem, but just a heads up.

    By the way, do you plan to do this for the all-post feed?

    I'm using http://use.perl.org/journal.pl?op=top&content_type=rss I got somewhere.

    Maybe I'm using the wrong URL.

    Thanks!

    • I would really, really love for this to work with the all-journals feed. I would buy pudge some beers.

      • I would stop making fun of Pudge's choice of baseball teams if we could get an all-journals feed. I don't have any friends because I read all the journal entries (even the ones by TorgoX). Right now I have my own journal reader, but I'd sure like to get rid of it so everything shows up in NetNewsWire :)

  • Yep a all-journals feed would be perfect (that links to to the individual journal entry

    http://use.perl.org/~pudge/journal/21884

    rather than the just the user's journal

    http://use.perl.org/~pudge/journal/

    There are three main reasons for this

    1. The biggest complaint is that the URL isn't unique and the same URL could appear in the feed multiple times.
    2. Another reason is that when you follow an older link/headline combination, you may be presented with a newer journal entry and then you have to scroll do
