Feed Auto-discovery Plugin

   28 February 2006, late evening

I’ve finally fixed the feed auto-discovery links on this site, and in doing so made a new plugin. This plugin will generate the auto-discovery links that you place in the head section of your HTML document. These are what feed-readers use to find the feeds available at your site. This plugin lets you specify whether you want the feeds to be “smart” (aware of what section and category they are in) or not. You can download the plugin here.

This plugin will produce audo-discovery feed links. There are two parameters:

  • smart – this can equal 1 or 0. If it is 1, then the feed links will be section and category aware.
  • flavour – this can equal ‘rss’ or ‘atom’. This is how you set what sort of feed link to produce.

Also, if you find my feeds are all really broken, please let me know.

Download the plugin: rsx_feed_auto_discovery_link-0.1.txt

Comments

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

 
Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
