New Tinotopia Feeds

Okay, I’m probably going to regret this, basing my self-esteem as I do entirely on the level of traffic that this website sees. But that’s not important. What’s important is that I do right by you, my Public.

To that end, I have established a number of new RSS feeds here, to make it that much more convenient for you to enjoy Tinotopia. The feeds are:

  • Tinotopia Full Text Feed
    This is the weblog you’re reading now, in convenient RSS form. Only the five most-recent entries are included, but you might want to consider this if your web browser breaks down or something.
  • Recently Noted
    This is the bottom-right sidebar on the main Tinotopia page. These are for those things that strike me as interesting, but not so interesting that I actually have anything of my own to add.
  • Urban Planning Clippings
    As above, but specifically having to do with urban planning.
  • Phonecam Pictures
    An archive of pictures taken with the camera built into my phone. This is where the pictures from the top of the left-hand column on the main Tinotopia page go when they get old.
  • Tinotopia Gallery
    This is an easy way for you to keep current with the photos in the main gallery here. This way you won’t have to rely any more on a picture randomly showing up in the upper right-hand corner of the weblog to know that there’s more new smooth Tino goodness in the gallery.
  • All of this stuff should work out of the box, but as I do not really read my own feeds, please let me know if something seems wrong.

    For some reason, when I try to add your Full Text feed to Sharpreader, it redirects to your gallery/rss.php feed… is there any weird htaccess stuff going on that could cause this to happen?

    Very odd.

    Removing one leading space and inserting a carriage return in the feed file seems to have cleared this up. Why a problem should have resulted in the reader showing a different feed entirely is beyond me, though.

    One issue I’m having, that may be a feature rather than a bug, is when someone posts a comment, not only does your comments feed change, but your main log page feed changes too (because the number of Comments for that thread got incremented). So both the main feed and the comments feed icons tell me there have been changes, and I’ll go to the main feed like a doofus to see that nothing there has changed.

    Perhaps it’s just an XML thing that Real Geeks will come to accept, but it won’t win any converts with Normal People

    I’ve fixed the problem with the full-text feed updating each time a comment was added. The comment link at the bottom of each item in the full-text feed changed each time a comment was added, which caused reader software to show the article as new. I have removed the comment count from the full-text feed, so this should no longer be a problem.
