Features and fixes in the FeedLand system.
  • #
  • The document icon, when you click it, shows you the content of the post in its own page. Example. You can use this to share a link to any story outside of FeedLand. I've wanted this for example, when I want to share a specific podcast episode, and there was no way to do it. Now there is.#
  • The code icon pops up a dialog with the data behind the item. Screen shot. This is vital for debugging and sometimes error reporting. In addition to opening a dialog, it also displays the data in the JavaScript console in the browser. #
  • The standalone pages aren't quite finiished yet, esp the ones for posts without titles.#

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
