RSS 2.0 feeds for syndication
Blurty provides an RSS 0.91 feed for each journal - mine is at http://www.blurty.com/users/claudiusmaximus/rss. The problem is that the feed is very minimal - it doesn't even have the date of the entries - so it isn't very useful. What would be much better is an RSS 2.0 feed instead, or an option of various types of feed.
I used the Blurty style system to make an RSS 2.0 feed, I wonder if Blurty admin would like to incorporate this (in some modified form) into Blurty? The styleid is 117685, you can use it with an URL like http://www.blurty.com/customview.cgi?user=claudiusmaximus&styleid=117685 replacing claudiusmaximus with the username of the journal you want to feedify. I'm going to start work on a version for friends pages, I'll edit this post with the styleid when I get it finished.
EDIT: here are the RSS 2.0 styles I made:
- 117685 - claudiusmaximus-lastn-rss20-full - the latest journal posts, only works if all your posts are valid XML
- 117695 - claudiusmaximus-lastn-rss20-headlines - just date and subject
- 117694 - claudiusmaximus-friends-rss20-full - the latest journal posts, only works if all your friends' posts are valid XML
- 117696 - claudiusmaximus-friends-rss20-headlines - just date, subject and poster
