- Re-syndicate a feed via RSS Digest into a Blog.
- But this is only re-syndicating one feed, you can mix lots of feeds into a mega-feed via a
Blogdigger group feed, or via RSS Mix.
- You can also re-syndicate several feeds without mixing them into one feed via
Just to re-cap, this syndicates the content from multiple RSS feeds to automatically populate a blog…a superblog! This is like a blogdigger group but is a blog interface.
[ADDED 24/08/05: RSSDigest is now superseded by FeedDigest which can splice/mix feeds, and also filter feeds]
(once this is set up, you don’t have to do anything…it runs itself)
- Del.icio.us feeds via RSS Digest into a Blog, or Superblog or a Blogdigger Group
(not as automated as the first option; if you don’t populate your del.icio.us account, the blog, inturn won’t be populated)
You can also use multiple del.icio.us tags into one feed by using the “add” function in del.icio.us
- reBlog into a blog
(this is different as it isn’t being populated by RSS feeds, it is even more manual or more direct than option 2, as it’s manually clipping from an RSS reader into a blog)
- Bloglines clip blog
(this is different as it isn’t being populated by RSS feeds, as reBLog above, unless you use the Bloglines clip blog RSS feed via RSS Digest into a Blog, which would make it similar to option 2)
Category - Issue
Problem is I want the feeds to act as categories, when I click on a category I want the content to display in the blog.
This means that if I created a feed via a Feedster search query, I could put this URL on my sidebar as a category and label it as I please, I could also put an XML button next to it representing a category feed. When someone clicks on the category link it takes them to the Feedster website of that search query, or they can just subscribe to the category RSS feed.
Problem is I want to view this within the blog, I don’t want to have to go to the native site.
So if I used Superblog, and clicked on the category (eg. Feedster search query) on the side panel, this would go to the original site to view the contents, I want to view the contents within Superblog.
An added problem is clicking on a category in your blog that is made at RSS Mix won’t take you anywhere as the mixed content doesn’t live anywhere in a mixed form - ie. RSS Mix isn’t a database that stores content, it is just a tool to do the mixing.
Same thing goes, if you click on a category in your blog where the feed is made at PubSub.
Category - Solution
Blogdigger groups allows you to view category content within the Blogdigger group (you don’t have to go to the native site), which is cool, but then I like the presentation of Superblog as it is a typical blog format.
If Blogdigger groups future endeavours are to look more like a blog format with customised presentation, then this tool is my answer…just a waiting game.
A great example of this is LIS feeds…how do they do it?
But I want the side panel with all the feeds to stay there when you click on one.
NOTE: Sounds like what I want to make is more of an aggregator than a blog.
I suppose another similar option is a public version of a Bloglines account…if this could be customised to look like a blog that would be also an answer.
