Site Is Restored Back

Fri, 26 Feb 2010 04:09:00 +0000

Hello... There has been an issue since a while with the domain http://www.smashingfeeds.com and i received many emails as well as tweets about this.

Well, the issue was that the domain was about to expired and i asked my domain registrar to renew it, however due to some issue it didn’t happen and so domain was automatically went to parking list. Finally, issue was identified and not site is restored back.

All the users of "Tweet This" button were affected. It was noticed that all those blogs and sites who installed this widget, were redirected to http://smashingfeeds.com site. I am not sure why was that happened.

Now site and widget are working fine.

Sorry for inconvenience. For any question or clarification, let me know @blogfisher.

Enjoy and have a great weekend !!




Which View Do you Prefer ? One Column, Two Columns or Three Columns…

Sat, 18 Oct 2008 13:02:00 +0000

When smashingfeeds.com was launched starting of this year, it has default three column view. Many comments/suggestions on the blogosphere say that three column view will not work any more. People are tired with that. I don’t know whether that’s the real case or not. Anyway, we considered those suggestions and finally providing more flexibility for all readers. We added three options for display. You can choose either one column view two columns view or three columns view just by clicking on the options as shown in below image. You can find them on right top side just below the category menu: One can switch among these options. One Column View: Two Columns View:  Three Columns View:   Finally thanks to jQuery team for providing such a great library. Hope you would like this feature. Please feel free to provide your feedback/suggestions. Cheers!! [...]



New VC Category and Homepage

Sun, 12 Oct 2008 12:06:00 +0000

Hi,

There is a small update to SmashingFeeds.com. First the addition of new homepage. In previous version, when you open the site, it will by default show you the feed content from technology. Now with this new homepage, you will find all categories on one page. You can pick one of them based on your interest. The main reason is to show all categories on a single page rather than menu (menu is still there). This makes more visibility.

(image)

Another update is the addition of new "VC" category. This covers the news stories from all best Venture Capital blogs and websites.

Hope you like these changes. Feel free to provide your feedback.

Cheers!




Feed Arrangement Is Back

Sun, 05 Oct 2008 06:47:00 +0000

Bonjour,

   Site is up again. AS i mentioned in last post about hacking of this site by iSKORPiTX; (TURKISH HACKER). I am still not clear the intension behind hacking of this site. Most of the people say they do such things just for being popular and fun. I always keep back ups for there is no issue.

Well, there is another update. We launched feed arrangement feature couple of moths back. One can re-arrange all feeds as per choice. This feature was removed in new version of the site due to some technical issues.

It took some time to fix the issue and now this feature is back. Hope you will enjoy it.

Please give it a try and let us know if you have comments or suggestions.




SmashingFeeds.com Is Hacked

Sat, 04 Oct 2008 20:20:00 +0000

It looked strange to me when i first noticed few files at my FTP server which was not created by me. I opened them up and it said that site is hacked by BY iSKORPiTX; (TURKISH HACKER). This is strange as there is no database smashingfeeds.com maintaining. So i don’t understand why does someone take interest in hacking this site.

I changed my login details and password immediately. The hacked page screenshot is shown below :

(image)

I am not able to upload any files to FTP server right now. So currently site is down.




Option for only head-line display

Sun, 28 Sep 2008 17:51:00 +0000

Hello,

   It has been a long time since i wrote my last post on this blog. Well, there are lots of things going on. I was in US for a month period and updating my personal blog i-Stuff…Interesting Stuff that Matters. Also working with twitter mash up..

Oh yes, i am currently working with twitter mash-up. Will soon tell you about it as its just a idea right now and will take sometime to shape it up. Currently facing problem with twitter APIs. You can check it here… If you have any idea to fix it, feel free to get back to me (blogfisher.80[at]gmail[dot]com).

Well, there is a small update to SmashingFeeds.com. If you are a regular visitor, then you would have already noticed it. There is a small “eye” icon (image) which is added today. There are couple of suggestions i received to add this feature. When you click on the “eye” icon on the right side below the category menu, it will display only headlines of news stories as below.

(image)

Many times, it becomes difficult to go through the entire page. This “eye” button help you to scan the headline faster.

Its a kind of toggle button. So if you want to display author information, publication date as well as small description about news, then click the “eye” icon again and it will show these additional details. So its just a click away to switch between two views of news.

Hope you like this small “eye” feature. Enjoy!!




Thanks to ReadWriteWeb

Mon, 16 Jun 2008 19:08:00 +0000

Yesterday there was a tremendous traffic to smashingfeeds.com. I was just surprised. Then i found out the source of traffic and it was because of ReadWriteWeb. They write a very nice post about this website. Title was ”Smashing Feeds: Get the Latest Twitter and FriendFeed News”. As per them, tweet is something interesting category. “The aggregated news coverage sites are separated into categories such as Technology, Business, Productivity, Web 2.0, and more. None of these sections are new, but their "Tweet" section is a definite eye catcher.” “Basically, you can get the hottest and most popular Twitter links from various services all on one page.” They also pointed out good thing to improve the site. “Bouncing from site to site that aggregates the hottest or most popular links on Twitter can be a chore. Users usually end up just picking on site and sticking with it. The 'Tweet' section of Smashing Feeds solves this problem. However, the randomness of some of the aggregated sites are weird. Why are random twitter messages and FriendFeed messages being aggregated as news? I'd suggest they stick to the sites that do most of the aggregation for them and aggregate those sites for the 'Tweet' section. Beyond that, Smashing Feed isn't offering anything better than the competition.” Thanks especially to Corvida who wrote such a nice post. What next ? Well, i am getting lots of feedback on smashingfeeds.com. I will work on that soon. Currently i am little bit engaged with developing video interface for smashingfeeds.com which will be live after some weeks at: http://www.smashingfeeds.com/video.php Suggestions ? If you have any suggestions/tips, feel free to contact me.[...]



New Design To Save Energy

Wed, 04 Jun 2008 19:02:00 +0000

Hi Guys,

It’s after a long time, i am writing about smashingfeeds. Well, there is a major site redesigning happened last week. You probably have noticed the new look. It’s basically related to a black background.

Inspired by earth day, i thought to change the back ground color to black to save some amount of energy and this way i can be the part of energy saving efforts as saving energy is equivalent to generating new energy.

"Image displayed is primarily a function of the user's color settings and desktop graphics, as well as the color and size of open application windows; a given monitor requires more power to display a white (or light) screen than a black (or dark) screen." Roberson et al, 2002

This inspired me to change the background color of this website to black from white. Each time user visit this site, this new site design will help to save some amount of energy.

You can read something interesting about black color here.




SmashingFeeds.com Is Redesigned

Sat, 19 Apr 2008 17:56:00 +0000

Today i spent couple of hours in redesigning the website. Tough it was not an easy task for me to change the look, however i was somehow able to manage it.

(image)

Well, there is no major change to the features. Only look and feel (CSS) is re-designed to make it better than older design. Logo size is reduced and top menu is replaced by a simple menu at right top corner.

Area of feed items display block is increased by few pixels.

Also there were couple of updates along with this re-designing work. First is the addition of 'tweet' option in the menu. Here you will find various RSS feeds related to Twitter as well as FriendFeed. Both site are becoming popular these days. Also option is available for blog owner. If you own a blog and want to display content of your blog on SmashingFeeds.com via RSS feed, then you can email me you site name and category details. I will review it and if it is good then i will add it to my site. Please not that before submitting your blog/site, make sure your site contains original content.

Feel free to provide your valuable feedback. Also let me know the features that you want to be there in this site.




Drag-n-Drop

Wed, 26 Mar 2008 18:39:00 +0000

There is a small update to SmashingFeeds.com. Drag-n-Drop feature is added for all feeds.

What does it mean ?

Now you can drag and drop all feeds on a page. This will help you in rearranging the existing feeds as per your choice. To re-arrange the feeds, just hover the mouse on feed head and drag it anywhere you would like to place it.

(image)

Well, this is not something new for web2.0. However i think this will provide some kind of flexibility to you. So that you can keep all your favorite feeds together by rearranging them.

I will provide more update soon. Subscribe to RSS Feed.

If you have something better then feel free to share with me. Just drop me an email at : blogfisher[dot]80[at]gmail[dot]com

Your feedback and suggestions will be appreciated.
