Features and fixes in the FeedLand system.

  • Here's a screen shot from news.scripting.com that shows two icons on a news item. They work now, they didn't used to.#
  • What the icons do#
    • When you click on the document icon you get a new page with the full text of the item. Some feeds have the full text of articles, so this makes it possible to read them. I wouldn't necessarily rely on the URL as being persistent.#
    • The </> icon shows you all the information we have associated with the item. It's like View Source -- esp useful if you write software that works with these objects. #
  • This fix applies to all news products for every FeedLand user. #

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! :-)
