beta testing - rss feeds

Postby Paul Clerkin » Thu Oct 13, 2005 2:55 am

testing a new rss feed for the irish news service...
http://www.irish-architecture.com/news.xml

If this is popular and it probably will, I'll add some more including events, competitions, etc to complement existing mailinglists etc...

i'll also be releasing some javascript code so other sites can place irish architeture headlines in their pages

you'll probably need to explain the whole rss business and suggest a couple of readers for mac and pc users for this to take off.

no but the general idea is that it should bring people into the site....
unlike the newsletters which push people directly to the original news source
