Do you use an RSS (or Atom) reader?
- Yes. Every day.
- Yes. Every week.
- I used to, but haven’t in a while.
- Never, but I am familiar with it.
- What’s an RSS?
Wondering if it’s worth it to add more advanced RSS features to my website: specifically per-topic RSS feeds which would allow people to get updated whenever there’s an addition to a bibliography you’re “following.”
The website is looking GREAT!
Well done for all your work collecting all this knowledge together and for exercising such restraint in the display of it —a nice clean minimal site!
I love the not-self icon on the Function of Buddhism.
Lovely layout Bhante, not to mention the content🙏🏼
Many thanks Bhante for sharing your website, I look forward to using it and discovering the many resources you have provided, thank you
You’re welcome! Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions
Great website, thank-you! Clear & easy to use, but just what is an RSS?
RSS stands for “Really Simple Syndication” It’s a special file format that lists additions to a website, so that when something new is added you can get notified about it in a special app called an “RSS Reader” which scans all the RSS feeds you’re keeping an eye on for new updates. A podcast app is actually an rss reader, for example, and a podcast is an RSS listing mp3 files.
I did find a website for turning RSS notifications into emails, so if people want to get emails when anything is added to a particular topic, that might be one way to make it work. If there’s interest, just let me know and I can hook that up for you.
I get the impression that RSS isn’t used as much as when it was new.
That conclusion does indeed seem to be supported by the survey
So… it took me a year, but I finally got around to implementing this feature! You can now find RSS links at the top of each topic:
