Sloth Blog

General web site updates.

Postby broeggle » Sat Oct 28, 2006 10:17 am

Hi,

thanks weasel for the bug report.
I found the shival-bug - the problem is Ivec is called 'Ivec, the supply merchant' - 1 comma to much :)
I'll give splork a tell about how we possibly could fix that - but it's no big issue :)


About the missed raises - if you could provide me date/time/playernames I can look it up and try to track down the bug.
I added you in icq, so you just can give me a tell if I'm not ingame :)


Regards,
broeggle

add/read it with you favorite rss reader (e.g. liferea / firefox)

Please tell me what you think about it :)

What's the RSS thing supposed to do? I've tried clicking the link both in the post and on the blog, as well as typing out the address, and nothing ever comes up. The blog's link opened up an empty browser window...

Broeggle is going to write up a small tutorial tomorrow along with a small summary of what RSS is.

I have to admit, he had to email me this info this morning but I found it to be quite fun and useful.

I've removed the old blog for several reasons but mostly because I fixed Weasel's bug and I did not feel like manually editing hundreds of entries.

The new one will start reading soon,

Hi - the blog is fixed and up again - now even mobs with ugly names appear correctly in the blog - thanks to splork - I did just a minor change in order to fix it.



@weasel : don't care about file extensions,please - the rss feed is a valid xml file, in accordance to the rss 2.0 specs - and my reader parses ist, and usually all other readers don't care about it either.

The problem ist, that the feed is genereated atm dynamically with php -> but only .php files are interpreted as php atm :)

@weasel: if you still have problems with it - and insist on your aggregator - I'll find a solution for you - just give me a tell :)


The Tutorial/Explanation will follow soon - just have to mud first :)

No worries, I'll get it sussed - one parser I use converts xml docs to HTML format for publishing, but it seems to have issue with that extension (although there's an updated version coming out soon, so that issue will likely solve itself).. as you mentioned, I can just load it up in FireFox anyway.
Cheers.

Are we able to add an argument to that URL of http://www.slothmud.org/modules/Sloth_B ... og.rss.php if we want just a personalized feed? Not that I want to, just a question that popped into my head.. :shock:

Thanks :)
If you're into doing feeds atm, feeds from the 'who's online' and 'who's grouping' could be handy too :)

Postby broeggle » Wed Nov 22, 2006 8:45 pm

So - sorry it took so long, was a bit busy the last time.

But finally I have created a tutorial for all the people out there who still ask themselves 'wtf is rss'

It is located here:
