Using Mac OS X?

Check this out.... a little dock guy that will alert you to fresh stuff on GC (or other RSS sites such as Slashnet, NASA, National Enquirer, USA Today, etc etc)....

http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/internet_utilities/slashdock.html

This is REALLY cool!

Totally awesome, Snaggy!

RSS ROCKS!

Red, check out the app NetNewswire for RSS feeds under OS X... http://ranchero.com/software/netnewswire/ It brings a Outlook-style 3-pane interface for reading the aggregated feeds, and still lists them in the dock like SlashDock... it has tons of presets...

I use NetNewsWire to watch/read all the Mac news sites, my favorite weblogs (Wil, Megan, Morgan, Leo, Andy I...), my MovableType server supports it, and it works great with Snaggy's new RSS feed too!

=DB

RSS is the BESST!

Snaggy: A technical question. Is RSS an off-the-shelf feature of UBB, or do you have to do some extra magic? I noticed that you only do the 15 newest posts, could it be configured for other things? I ask this not as a request for features in GC, but because we are looking into forum systems to replace email for most dicussion within out company. I believe that RSS will be the enabler which lets individuals build custom views of the activity they need. I'm looking for real world examples.

It's a feature of the UBB classic, InfoPop calls them "content islands".

You can create the following: New topics in one or all forums, New posts in one or all forums, Recent visitors for the board or one forum, Latest registered and approved members.

uses RSS and/or javascript

Ok hope that helps [Smile]

For all of you firefox users... if you're not aware of it, Firefox now has built-in RSS support.

If you want to subscribe to the RSS feed, just go to Bookmarks | Manage Your Bookmarks and then go to File | New Live Bookmark and put in one of the 1.0 RSS feeds. Firefox will represent the bookmark as a folder, with each entry appearing as a bookmark.

Personally, I am completely underimpressed by Firefox's "Live Bookmarks" - I never really understood what the whole RSS craze was about until I decided to try a competent reader. I first used Habari Xenu, and the moved to Sage. Sage makes RSS reading work very well for me.

That was my first thought, too, little fish.

I have a few RSS feeds on my site, including one from here. I really like FF's live bookmarks -- espcially the "open in tabs" feature.

Ha! I never even thought about that - no...some friends' blogs that I keep my eye on every now and again.

It's funny that you mention that, however - what do you want to bet that RSS feeds will really take off if/when some porn sites start using it to syndicate content somehow?

I'm looking at the date on that first post and remembering that I was all like "yes!" when it was new... I've been here a long time.

I'm looking at dragonman's screenshot and thinking ... OK ... right ... but how does that differ exactly from just opening the ContentIslands/1/html.html page in its own tab, and then use Stylish (Firefox user styling extension) to make it prettier?

OK, there is one obvious difference: Stylish won't let me use :before or :after to include image URLs from my local hard drive.

Otherwise, I've never used RSS and I don't suppose I ever will.

...and that's an old screenshot. I don't use Sage anymore...I use Google Reader & Firefox 2's built-in RSS parser (neé FeedView). It's nothing fantastic, but it serves my needs just fine.

I still don't get what's different to just using this?

http://www.geekculture.com/ultimatebb/ContentIslands/1/html.html

I leave Firefox running, so that page just sits as my first tab at all times, and another certain *ahem* ;) forum sits in tab number two.
