Micro-banners / promo buttons

Several users have asked if we have any graphics available that they can use to link to us with. We do now! These are also linked from our PromoButtons documentation page and will be kept updated there. We do prefer that you save these and use them by uploading them to your own Web space […]

Now 5 digests for free

I’ve upgraded all free accounts from having a maximum of 3 digests to a maximum of 5 digests. Enjoy! Other upgrades include an increase from 10 max feeds per digest to 12 on the Basic package, and the Pro package moves up to 150 digests and 100 feeds per digest max. I guess the next […]

Autodiscovery; WAP support; Feed suggestions; more upgrades

Some upgrades to FeedDigest today. Feed autodiscovery. If you put a regular Web page URL into any of the boxes on FeedDigest now, it’ll try to work out if that page has an associated RSS or Atom feed with it, and if so, it’ll let you know what the URLs for the feeds are. Makes […]

Feed integration goes mainstream

Mena Trott (Six Apart): "We’re launching a solution for TypePad next week to inline RSS (i.e., subscrbe to RSS Feeds from your Blog) that won’t require playing with script." from Tony Gentile’s buzzHit! It seems that everyone is following on now. FeedBurner launched its BuzzBoost feature a couple of weeks ago, and now it seems […]

Atom 1.0 support

In all the hard work getting Feed Digest ready for launch, the early rumbles of Atom 1.0 passed me by somewhat. I’ve now begun work on making Feed Digest output Atom 1.0 feeds (currently 0.3), and particularly on getting Feed Digest to parse Atom 1.0 feeds. I’ve made a good start and Atom 1.0 feeds […]

First blog mentions

I’ve deliberately kept Feed Digest on a slow burn in terms of promotion till now. Making sure everyone who signs up ends up with a working digest has been key, along with ironing out any last minute bugs that didn’t appear during the beta testing phase. Today I changed the RSS Digest page to point […]

From to your blog in two minutes

I’ve created a second video (and significantly improved the first). Now you can watch how to get your links onto your blog in 2 minutes. This was the reason I created Feed Digest’s predecessor, RSS Digest, in the first place, so it made sense to make a video of how to do it here.

Soft launch

I’ve worked the last thirteen hours straight and finally, we have a soft launch. Effectively anyone can sign up now, but if you can not spread it around too much for the next few days that’d be good. I have to take today off with the girlfriend :-) Still, you won’t believe how satisfied I […]

Live demonstration of a mixed digest

Here’s a live demonstration of a feed I just created: It mixes several RSS feeds into one.. feeds for “funny+movie”, “funny+photo”, “funny+picture”, etc.

Format support

RSS Digest provides digests in HTML and JavaScript format. You can include the HTML format with a PHP include or IFRAME, or simply view it direct in your browser. The JavaScript format allows anyone to include a digest on any page using a <SCRIPT> JavaScript include. Feed Digest, on the other hand, supports HTML and […]
