    Which appears to work OK. I haven't figured out how get a comments feed yet.

      • Very nice! Thanks.

        I think I prefer the feed with new journal entries only, but the feed you've described for getting all comments (new journal entries and replies to them) is great to know about.

        I have determined that the reason the journal feed described in the FAQ -- http://use.perl.org/journal.pl?op=top&content_type=rss [perl.org], which is described as "most recent journal users" -- hasn't been working in Bloglines for me is that the resulting RSS feed is the "Top 20" journal entries (that's the title showing up in Bloglines). I don't know what "top" means, but the feed does have 20 entries. The most recent entry was on March 1, so that's why I was seeing no entries when I subscribed and then asked BlogLines to show me entries from the last 72 hours.

        Do you know what the criteria are for "Top 20"? I can't find it in the FAQ.

        • If I click that in Firefox it shows up-to-date data. However, the feed is really useless: instead of showing posts, it shows the 20 journals that were most recently posted to (but it uses the title of the latest post on each journal as the title of the feed item).

          It’s quite possible that Bloglines thinks that because it has seen these items before (albeit with different titles), they must be old and that the feed is not being updated.

          Anyway, the search.pl-based feeds work sanely.

          • That's it!

            The URL in the FAQ is generating a list of URLs of the journals themselves -- e.g. http://use.perl.org/~uri/journal/?from=rss [perl.org] is the URL for a recent entry in Uri Guttman's journal -- so the BlogLines feed reader and probably others ignore new journal entries if they've seen a previous journal entry by that particular user.

            That must be the reason why I was seeing no results at all when asking BlogLines for entries from the past 72 hours... when I went to BlogLines and expanded the time frame t

        • Oh btw, the feed I linked contains only comments (without content). You need the feed Domm linked for the posts (and it includes fulltext content).
