Atom vs RSS?

I see on the sideblog that MetaFiler now has an atom feed.

What exactly can I do with that? And how is it different/better that the RSS feed?

RSS for AskMe

The MeFi RSS feed works great. While I can envision the reason(s) for ommitting this feature for metaTalk, wouldn't it make sense to have on for AskMeFi ?

Does Ask MetaFilter have an RSS feed?

Ask is very cool - but where's the RSS?

fix characters that break rss

As can be seen in the title link in this post, certain characters in front page posts, like apostrophes, mess up the RSS feed. Is there some way to prevent them from being used or automatically switching them to encoded character entities?

baby weblogs like Crunchlandfilter, Miguelfilter, Foldfilter, and Sudamafilter

If each user's page of posted links had comment counts and an RSS feed, Metafilter would instantly turn into a community with hundreds of baby weblogs like Crunchlandfilter, Miguelfilter, Foldfilter, and Sudamafilter.

Why can't I subscribe to the MeFi front page posts via email?

Why can't I subscribe to the MeFi front page posts via email (either digest or real-time)?

I don't understand why most blogs don't also allow at least read-only email subscription.

Problems with NetNewsWire Lite RSS

Has anyone else noted that as of this morning NetNewsWire Lite (Mac OS X RSS reader) can't parse Metafilter's RSS feed?

Unfortunately all I get from the app is "The XML parser could not parse the RSS data." It worked yesterday, though.

stupid "smartquotes" in this thread are breaking Metafilter's RSS feed

It looks like the stupid "smartquotes" in this thread are breaking Metafilter's RSS feed (or at least Syndirella's ability to parse it).

The RSS Feed appears to have been fried by a rogue ampersand

The RSS Feed appears to have been fried by a rogue ampersand. Surround the title text with CDATA tag, perhaps? XML gurus?

Could we have the name of the poster in the RSS feed?

Can Posts Have Titles?

A while back there was a discussion about the non-informative RSS/RDF/XML feed titles, due to the fact that metafilter/metatalk threads don't have 'titles' as such. Could we perhaps have a an extra field in the 'post an FPP' form marked 'Post title' or something that was less than some arbitrary limit of characters long and could be used for things like the feeds, and more importantly (and the reason I'm requesting this) for page titles.
I tend to open all the links I want to read in one go. When I click on the "(n new)" link I don't go to the top of the story, and so when I get to the page after reading other FPPs, I don't know what this story's about anymore, and can't glance at the document title for a hint of the general subject as with many sites.

Does MeFi have an RSS feed? I searched around, but couldn't find one...hopefully I wasn't missing something obvious...if there isn't one, could there be?

RSS Problems

Does anyone else use the rss feed? I've tried to use it with a news ticker with little success. [more]

RSS: next big thing, or nothing?

Recent thread on RSS was a real eye opener. The ever growing mass of great blog material to read is making it impossible to keep up. With abundant tools now available for the blog writer, more and better tools are needed for the blog reader, or one will be forever swamped. (Another good summary on how RSS can help here, another good aggregator/reader here. , don't think either were mentioned in recent thread)

What is RSS for, exactly?

So, I'm digging mefi's RSS feed, and it finally inspired me to find out what RSS is really about. The whole idea seems so strange to me, though -- can I really just grab the feed and put it on another website? My problem is that I've seen more examples of RSS feeds being offered than examples of RSS being used. I tried to check out Ben Brown's thing, but it looks broken. None of the other mentions of RSS here on MetaTalk helped answer my question.

I think I'll press the 'XML' button and see what happens

I think I'll press the 'XML' button and see what happens ... what does 'An invalid character was found in text content. Error processing resource 'http://xml.metafilter.com/rss.xml'. Line 14, Position 152' mean?

Broken RSS Feed

something seems to be amiss with the metafilter RSS feed. it's well-formed, but only shows the channel data, no items.

I've been SmartFiltered out of MeFi at work

I've been SmartFiltered out of MeFi at work. I swear I only looked when I was doing a build. Mostly.

I tried using Ben Brown's MeFi/RSS demo but it's got no links. Bad enough I can't see the discussions, but no links! (It's kind of like wanting a cigarette and having to make do witha picture of one.)

Where do I want to go today? Without MeFi, I haven't got a clue.

Is there a solution, or am I doomed to be more productive at work?

RSS feeds for Metafilter and Metatalk (Oct. 2001)

If there were MetaFilter and MetaTalk RSS feeds that contained all of the information the front pages normally do, and we had permission to mirror them, it could take some server load off the site.

RSS Headline Feed

If you don't already produce one, can we have an RSS headline syndication feed?

Simplified MeFi pony request

I would love a pared down version of MeFi that I could sync with via Avant Go. Ideally, it wouldn't have the sidebar or header links, and would limit the display to the last couple of days (since you can't have AvantGo use your cookies.) Yeah, I know, MeFi is all about discussion, why would you want to read it in offline mode? My local paper sucks, and I can't think of a better way to get through progress bars or waiting in the doctor's office.

The MetaFilter RSS feed is broken.

The MetaFilter RSS feed is broken. I just was wondering how you were populating the RSS, and got a malformed XML error. You have a stray "&" in one of the descriptions. Also, the "title"s aren't very title-like: "comments on 9412". Just FYI.

Can I import MeFi links to my own blog?

I run a blog and of course every time I post a link it's already been in MetaFiler at least 15 minutes early. :)

It would be great if I could "import" the topics into my site on a sidebar, like you can do with Slashdot. I'm not sure how it works, but it would be nice to have. Any ideas?

Hi to ev'ryone.. just joine metafilter..
