    Very funky. I've downloaded Firefox 1.0, but can't find the RSS reader either...

    in Firefox 1.0 go...

    Bookmarks
    Manage Bookmarks

    On the new window that opens go...
    File
    New Live bookmark
    In the "properties for new live bookmark" give it a name eg APUG
    then cut and paste this into the Feed Location http://www.apug.org/forums/external.php
    Click OK

    Now close Firefox and re-open it.
    Click on your bookmarks and you will see APUG with a little Icon beside it and RSS feed beside it.

    not that I'm aware of, it might be able to be tweaked from a special rss client?

    Sean,
    Are you still using Sharpshooter or have you moved on to something else?

    I haven't dug into it much, but it seems to either be a mime typing thing or the lack of a .rss extension on the URL. Firefox places a [RSS] icon in the window's status bar if there's an RSS feed on the page. Works fine on some other pages like http://www.syndic8.com/feedinfo.php?FeedID=658 and http://slashdot.org/ , but it doesn't happen when I view the main apug page, the page for this thread, or the list of forums. There's a tutorial of sorts on the Mozilla site for manually adding RSS feeds to your bookmarks (so-called "live bookmarks") at http://www.mozilla.org/products/fire...bookmarks.html , but it requires that the feed URL end in .rdf or .xml, which leads me to believe it might be a mime typing issue.

    ideas? Maybe I need to write a page of my own with the right kind of link in it, but I'm betting this would be useful to more apuggers than just me.

    Oh heck... as long as I'm being unreasonably demanding, I might as well queue up another suggestion that it would also be nice if you could have an RSS subscription both to the top of the member journal tree as well as to any particular member journal (and if it's yours, have the option to update the journal through RSS.)

    I know that this is really old news ... but, I've been playing around with this the last couple of days, and it seems that the APUG feed is not generating a valid DTD that the RSS readers expects.

    Can you add a link to the chat directly to the rss feed Sean?

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.
