Watch Your RSS!
…posted by davidjmedlock:
This blog isn’t quite so much about ColdFusion, but eventually, we’ll tie up all the loose ends, I promise. It will all make sense by mid-April.
Recently, we’ve seen quite a few articles about content distribution and syndication with RSS. You may remember some of these SitePoint Articles:
- [li]Get Off Your RSS! [/li][li]Use Custom Tags to Aggregate RSS Feeds into JSP-Based Web Apps [/li] [li]PHP and XML: Parsing RSS 1.0[/li]
Now, until a couple of months ago, I had been very vaguely aware that it existed, but now that it’s become so popular it has captured my interest more and more. So, I’ve begun researching RSS (Real Simple Syndication) to find out more about its history, its uses, and how I can utilize it on my current sites to increase traffic and visibility.
This, of course, leads me to one problem: How do I use RSS in conjunction with ColdFusion? That sounds like a good article topic to me. Look forward to reading much more on the topic in my April article. In the meantime, here are some resources you can check out for more information on RSS (in addition to the SP articles above):
- [li]Introduction to RSS at WebReference.com [/li][li]XML.com – What is RSS?[/li] [li]RSS 2.0 Specification (Technology @ Harvard Law) [/li] [li]RSS 1.0 Specification [/li]
Hopefully that will whet your appetite for the upcoming article.
