Need help sorting out how to use 23? Or have you discovered one of those nasty bugs?

View/comment count in RSS feed

sparowe   November 27, 2007, 12:27 PM


I subscribed to various RSS feeds from 23, e.g. conversations/comment. As this feed contains the view and comment count for each photo, the feed entries will get updated on every photo view.
Now, the problem is that my feed reader (NetNewsWire Lite) marks updated entries as unread (which normally makes sense). A solution for this would be to tell my client that it shouldn't set updated entries to unread, but this can only be set globally, which I don't want.
Well my question is, is this information (comment count for a comment) really necessary for those kind of news feed?

Dammit I forgot some line breaks. Maybe someone can correct that and delete this post..

How does one forget line breaks? ;-)

You're right. I actually switched from NewsNetWire for this exact reason (since I like to see stats about the photos; for example if it's been commented). I've never really seen why an item should be marked as unread again if the guid of the item doesn't change. Does anyone else have an opinion about this?

I mean I wanted to make the post a little more readable with some line breaks.. never mind (:

I don't know what the specifications of RSS tell about this, but I think it makes sense that a post is set to unread after it has been updated. In most cases, at least.

Okay I wrote a Perl/CGI script that solves my little problem:
