MAGPI now with even more RSS goodness!

Postby Rock_Rat on Thu Oct 04, 2007 11:54 am

Back by popular demand is an RSS feed for magpi.us. The feed seems only slightly slower than the old feed.

(unruly geek speak)
By default the RSS feed will give you the last 30 posts from all public topics. You can specify specific topics and even the number of post in your url. For example syndication.php?fid=9 would give you just threads from the topic with the id of 9. If you wish to have more than one topic syndication.php?fid=5,6,7 would give you topics 5, 6, and 7. If you wish to view only a certain number of posts syndication.php?count=3 would give you only 3 posts. If you want to view only the first post for each topic then use syndication.php?t=1. Variables can be mixed by separating them with an & so if you wanted just the first posts from each thread in topics 1, 2, and 3 you would use syndication.php?fid=1,2,3&t=1. How about to topics 1, 2, 3 but limited to 15 posts syndication.php?fid=1,2,3&count=15.

To get the topic id just open it an look for f=(some number) in the URL that number will be the fid for the RSS feed.
