Can we RSS for posts and comments?

Tue, 14 Feb 2006 08:58:41 -0800

It would be cool to have RSS feeds on a per user basis. I'm thinking mainly posts but comments would be fine too. Something like http://www.metafilter.com/username.mefi/user/posts.rss and http://www.metafilter.com/username.mefi/user/comments.rss. It'd be a great way to keep up with people whose stuff you enjoy (like everyone's favorite) w/o getting lost in the volume.

Okay gang: no more posting until mathowie comes through.

Wow! That worked well.

There's a little RSS icon on your user page, next to your post count. It's also displayed on the posts listing page when you click on the number of links posted. I'll add something similar for comments, and then copy it for the other sites as well.

Damn. That was quick. Sweet. Thanks.

Wow, it actually works to keep asking for the same features over and over.

Aaaalthough, not that I'm at all complaining, but would there be some way to get AskMe threads too? Maybe on host name? So that same URL, but with ask.metafilter... would give you the AskMe threads?

See, you give, and we want more!

xmutex, as I said in my last comment, I'll work up the scripts for the other sites too, probably after lunch.



By: Plutor

Tue, 14 Feb 2006 11:49:43 -0800

Are you done with lunch yet?



By: mathowie

Tue, 14 Feb 2006 11:59:05 -0800

It's not even noon yet. Also, I have to start drinking. It might be a while.

Another drunk coder. Just what we need.

Wow, I need to start compiling a list of extraordinary AskMe commenters for my RSS aggregator. ikkyu2 is the first one that comes to mind.

Um. I came here to say that this looks like a good idea. Then I found out that it was already approved. So...

GOOD JOB, MATT. I probably don't say that enough.



By: scarabic

Tue, 14 Feb 2006 12:59:20 -0800

Yeah, that's right! Sit the fuck down, xmutex!

I mean... good idea xmutex! Nice work, Matt!

Everyone's favorite questions feed.



By: blue_beetle

Tue, 14 Feb 2006 13:17:25 -0800

is there an RSS feed for all the fantastic comments/questions? Umm, an RSS feed for flagged posts? Dang, we're running out of things to request feeds for!



By: blue_beetle

Tue, 14 Feb 2006 13:17:43 -0800

No, no wait, I've got it! An RSS feed for deleted posts!



By: cortex

Tue, 14 Feb 2006 15:16:56 -0800

Can we get an RSS feed for threads and comments containing the string "RSS feed"?



By: gleuschk

R4WK.

MeTa too, now. Thanks, Matt.



By: whatnot

That's funny--I was just trying to think of a way to ask you for an "everything" feed, meaning all posts and comments for a particular user. Not for stalking purposes, mind you, but kind of like a flickr badge that shows all the most recent stuff.

This is pretty awesome stuff. Thanks, mathowie.
