Question: RSS Feed Where One Doesn't Exhist

Tue, 13 Sep 2005 21:06:19 -0800

Is there any way I can get an RSS feed for a site that doesn't publish one? I really want to access ComingSoon.net's Trailer page (which totally rocks) via Bloglines.

You could ask this guy to scrape the site and make a feed for you for just two and a half Euros. (Discussed on Metafilter.)

You say that they don't publish one, but they do have lots of feeds, including a general feed where they announce all new trailers. Sorry if you already know this; I can commiserate, as I have to scour the net all the time to find people who have made feeds of pages I want to track.

I think this site allows you to do what you want.

For sites that don't have feeds, I set up an e-mail subscription on Bloglines and use an e-mail reminder service to send me reminders to check the sites.

I have a similar question. I asked toothpastefordinner to set up an RSS feed and got a snarky 'no' response. I may ask for the scrape mentioned above, but is there any other source for TFD feeds?

Thanks! The two answers I marked as best worked best.

Forget toothpaste for dinner. drew's too busy selling books and t-shirts to care about his web presence.

For relatively simple websites, I use the bloglines email subscription function with ChangeDetection--they email you when the website changes rather than having to set your own reminders.

Soneone followed up with me on the Toothpaste For Dinner Feed. I believe that Drew has one of his own (atom) via live journal, but here's another made by 'lucas' who writes, "if you do post it please also write that I only made it because he refused to fix his own."
