As I mentioned recently, the BBC's Doctor Who website recently redesigned and moved their XML feed, without putting a redirect or message in the old feed to point people to the new one.
Posts about "XML feeds"
One of the wonders of having XML feeds is that you can keep up to date with what's going on quite nicely from one place instead of having to go through hundreds of different bookmarks, remembering what you've seen and what you've not. And it's something more and more sites are now realising that they should provide, and which will bring them traffic.
Quick apology for anyone on the full text feed - I managed to break it when I reinstalled by PC last week, and I've only just noticed. It should be fixed now and the person responsible flogged as punishment.
Some time ago I mentioned backstage.bbc.co.uk and a couple of ideas I'd had around travel feeds. Well I've been messing around and I'm happy to announce that myCommute now has a working prototype.
Those of you using the Atom or RSS feed might have noticed that I'm now sending through 25 items - quite a sizable increase on the 8 I was sending through before.
For some time there's been a hidden RSS feed for this site - an RSS 0.91 feed of the blog headlines and summaries. And now there isn't. But the two people who used it, should not fear as you should be using a different feed instead. Automagically. Honest.
A press release about RSS feeds isn't going to set the world alight. One that starts off telling you to go off and reuse the feed in exciting ways might just.
I was surprised to see the site hits go up 7000 last month, a large number of people hitting my post about my recent RSS changes, and a 1000 referrals from Mark Pilgrim's Dive Into Mark site.
There's a new full-stories feed for your pleasure. If you use an aggregator to view the site, feel free to give it a try.
Yet another silly RSS error. Will they ever end?
