Sneak a peek at our new RSS feeds, please


— 10:28 AM on July 19, 2011

Our current RSS feeds are, how shall we say, somewhat less than optimal. That's why we've been working on a new, improved feed arrangement. You can find out more about the new feeds and give them a whirl by checking in on this forum thread. Since I know clicking can be a painful and time-consuming exercise, let me quote Bruno's post for you here:

So we're updating our RSS feeds. The current ones are way too short and shortbread items go into all sorts of funny shapes. They're now longer (1.5 paragraphs) and retain all necessary formatting. Shortbread "appetizers" are now in stock and will be served daily. Do try the fondue.

We'll also be overhauling the RSS structure overall. The older separated-by-section feeds (i.e. "Motherboards and Chipsets - Articles") will be dropped. In their place, we intend to put up a page with four main feeds:

- News (same content as now, will still include news + articles + blogs + 'bread)
- Shortbread only
- Articles (articles + blogs)
- Podcast only (both formats)

For now, you can add this News test feed to your readers and let us know of any problems you encounter. Known bugs so far: images aren't appearing (comics revealed this).

We hope the changes and simplification will be an improvement overall, but we need your feedback. Please have a look at the new feed, and let us know what you think. Thanks!
