New LJ.XML feed.

15 04 2005

I’ve just switched my RSS feed into LJ over to the new format I’ve been working on. This may cause a huge update into LJ, but due to how LJ handles feeds, there’s nothing I can do about that.
The new footer has a dynamic counter that shows how many comments have been posted on an article in real time. If you refresh your LJ page, you’ll see the comment counter update.
I’ve also changed the text around a little bit to make it easier to read comments and add new ones.
For those reading via other aggegators, this has replaced the old RSS feed for LJ. If you want to subscribe to it, use http://planet-geek.com/lj.xml.
Feel free to let me know if you have any comments or suggestions or just plain criticisms 🙂
[Update : apparently it didn’t cause a huge cascade. I’m relieved :)]

Very nice. You need to publish and propagate this code far and wide.

(Though the lack of threaded comments is still unfortunate, as is the lack of ‘replys’ or email announcing such a reply. But it’s a very good start.)

hm.
it appears that the number of comments listed on the counter is not equal to the number of comments available to be read.
i’m guessing this is a moderation problem, i.e. the counter is counting submitted comments, not posted.

Yah, the counter currently counts ALL the comments, not just the ones that have been cleared from moderation. I’ll work on fixing that 🙂
[10 minutes later] Fixed! I added a clause that checks to count only those comments that are visible.
