RSS & Squishdot
Squishdot Posted by Eric Kidd on Saturday September 04, 12:55PM, 1999
from the tell-the-whole-world-about-it dept.
Netscape has defined a news format called RSS. RSS allows you to publish your headlines (and optionally, your lead paragraphs) on other news sites. These sites then link back to your stories. Are any squishdot users out there interested in RSS?

    I think it would be an excellent addition to Squishdot. KM|Net news already has this functionality, so perhaps this would save coding time and effort?

    Yes I am interested. Are you looking for beta testers for UserLand?

    Yes this is a great tool, but there is support for it, even automatic index.rss file creation under new 0.91 Netscape specification under KMNetNews 0.91 which BTW is great and I think complementary to Squishdot...

    Of course it would be great if squishdot generated a similar file so that you could not only use MyNetscape channel but share content with others by syndication...

    Hi Eric.

    FYI, we have a Topics Proposal floating over at
    the new Zope.org site that finally delivers on
    the "directory" part of the portal toolkit.

    One of my pet details of the proposal is to
    let topics have an RSS channel representation. To populate a channel, people just classify their
    content. In fact, their content can be in multiple channels simultaneously.

    Let me know what you think. If it looks appropriate, we'll talk with Butch about getting it to him.
