I had made a couple of small changes to my RSS feeds over the past couple of days and was about to write up something about those feeds when I got my first complaint. Now, some people might say that the choice to add comment information to ones’ RSS feeds (inside the body of the post, not as a seperate feed) should lie with the author of the blog. However, I believe, especially in the case of this blog, that it would depend on the consensus of the readers. Here is the problem. I had elected to add a comments link along with the number of comments already posted, inside the body of my RSS feed. I was not sure whether it was illegal (code) and whether it would be accepted well by the community. I seem to have gotten my answer, at least from one reader who voices their […]

How annoying would it be to receive ads with RSS feeds. Imagine having to wade through every fifth article being a “sponsored” article. I dont use my feed reader much, but I am trying to understand how opposed people would be to this idea. However, on the flip side of the coin, a vanilla RSS feed with JUST news is lost revenue for someone that is interested in generating profits from their blog/business blog. I am planning to come up with a way to grab RSS feeds from an existing site, insert ads into these feeds (between posts) and then retransmit these feeds. So when someone signs up for these ads, they would have to change their RSS feed links to point to the new server. Alternatively, some up with a way to insert ads into existing RSS feeds (which I might try as a test on this blog sometime). […]

XHTML Tips and Tricks

No
responses

In keeping with my previous post about promoting better programming/coding/markup/style practices among present developers and designers, I have decided to add a couple of categories to this blog and promise to add a few articles every week to those categories. XHTML syntax, better semantics, (common) validation issues and fixes for them, better explanation of validation errors are fair game. I invite my readers to contribute to this process as well and would appreciate a small post if and when you solve a complicated (or simple) validation issue for yourself. On a similar note, I am still looking for more authors for this blog. WordPress people are, as always, more than welcome, but my focus is on getting some authors for other blog tools such as Drupal, MT, Bloxsom etc. If you would like to write (and conversely get exposure for your site/blog/tool) a couple of articles a month for weblogtoolscollection.com, […]
