aw dude, best of luck! (i just wanted to have the first comment here)
doesn't work :(
I don't know anything about RSS feeds, but yeah, Slashdot works fine for me, but jerkcity doesn't.
Ok, here is a question from the blonde zone... what is syndication feed, RSS and RDF? What does that mean to me? Yes I am a lammer but at least I admit it...
A syndication feed is multi-point publishing. You publish in one place (eg. LiveJournal), and syndicate your content to whoever wishes to retrieve it (eg. other websites or RSS readers)
RSS stands for RDF Site Summary
(RDF stands for Resource Description Framework) or Rich Site Summary
, you can see the RSS feed for a paid user by adding rss/ on the end of their address. eg.http://www.livejournal.com/users/technodummy/rss/
You are a paid user, which means you can create RSS feeds in LiveJournal from external sources, see below for examples:http://www.livejournal.com/syn/
Creating RSS feeds for your favourite websites can save you a lot of time... I barely visit http://slashdot.org
now that I can simple watch slashdot
on my friends page. This allows blogrolling, which
This also means that people can read your journal via an RSS reader if they wish, or republish your content somewhere else.

A little more documentation?
Give that somebody made a feed for UserFriendly by pointing that account directory at their frontpage, I'm guessing there's a fair amount of people that have no idea what RSS/RDF feeds are.
Perhaps a little more information about what's required to create a new feed is in order?

Re: A little more documentation?
I just created ufies
Shouldn't paid member stuff go into paidmembers
? Like, I can see why it would go into news
because, well, it /is/ news, but I just feel sorry for paidmembers
, all neglected and stuff.
check the URL on this talkread, abe.

before hitting my syndication limit :)
This is gonna get messy ... probably need to do some duplicate checking if you don't already.
thanks for the heads up! Those feeds don't show up on the /syn/ page!
I wonder if someone has a partially definitive list or link to syndicated sites???

The cnetnewsdotcom feed that I just created has a little issue. The server returns a 302 Moved Temporarily response that appears to stop the feed from being read properly by LJ.
Just thought I'd let someone know. :)
Love your work.

Seems to work now.
maybe this isn't the best place to put this comment, but there are lots of LJ features and stuff (such as this one; the poll creator also comes to mind) that, in order to use them, you have to just remember the URLs (or bookmark them) because they aren't linked to from any LJ pages (that i know about)...is this on purpose, is this something that will eventually be changed, or is it just something we have to deal with?
I wonder who your vendor was that sent you all the deads? Can you say?
doesn't link to anything other than the main page... is it broken?
if RSS feeds are broken, can they be deleted?
No, that's just how Memepool have set up their feed. Everything looks right on LiveJournal's end; if you'd rather Memepool's RSS feed carry different information, you might mail them about it.
Brad, this is just sweet!
What I want to know is this:
What other LJ features are out there that most of us aren't aware of?
If you didn't post this, I would have never found this! (Probably!)
So what else are we missing out on?

I have a site I am hoping can be used for an RSS, but I don't know for certain. How does one check if they do that? I know they have a free headlines service (cbc.ca), but I don't know if that equates to an RSS...
2002-10-14 09:13 pm (UTC)
Just did some googling, doesn't appear to support RSS.
...and see other popular feeds
It's not totally done, but it's getting there.
Will part of the totally done part be a full listing of all the RSS feeds that have been created? It's so much easier just to look over what's there rather than trying to hunt an RSS feed down...
Can we get a link to this from the main page? Or a FAQ entry or something?

Re: Hows about a link?
FAQ will be added shortly. I'm a-workin' on it :)
I made brunching
for the Brunching Shuttlecocks.
I know this exactly doesnt have to do with your post but just a quick question??... I paid for my livejournal account thru my telephone account but I'm unable for the last month to find the information on here in which I did it the first time. Am I looking in the wrong area for it or does it no longer exsist? Thanks.
That option is no longer available. We had to drop IBill for different reasons. The main one is that they were going to start charging some very high fees to accept Visa and Master card. We would just be losing money with IBill.

Please help me!!!!!!
I know this is off topic but I figured if I posted it here I would get the most feed back. I have the worst time posting pictures. This is what I do: I uploaded my pics at MSN. I then right click on the photo, go to properties, copy the URL and then use the HTML that livejournal says to use and I know I am doing the HTML correctly. My pictures will work for awhile but usually by the next day they are the dreaded red X. Am I doing something wrong? Is there another way of posting pics without right clicking/properties/URL? I've tried uploading my pics at different places like Picturetrail, netsnapshot.com and yahoo and have the same problem. I love my livejournal but my pictures are a major part of it. I hate the fact that they will not stay on there. Any help would be greatly, GREATLY appreciated.
Hey, sorry this response is coming so late.
The problem is not Live Journal.
The problem is the site you're uploading the pics from.
It is preventing you to link directly to them and as a
result is giving you a red, nasty X when you try viewing
them on LJ. Sometimes it takes them a few days to kick
in, so that's normal too. My suggestion is that you
upload your pics from your hard drive and not a site that
will prevent you from linking directly to them. They see
that as an unfair use of their space.

friends of friends
ok, not related to syn at all.
how hard would it be for you guys to add a little variable on the friendsfriends page that said who this user was a friend of?
i would love you guys forever if you could do that.
i just got a paid account, and i'm loving it. you can expect $25 a year from me.
This past June when my paid account expired, I paid for another year worth but on my user info it says that it is expired in December. Can I please get this fixed? I still have the emails that say that I paid for a year and that it is not suppose to expire until this coming June.
I didn't know where to direct this question and the paidmembers LJ was as good as any. Please take care of that soon. Thanks!

Re: Paid Account Problem
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org. I suspect that you were running on the grace period, until you pay for your paid service. When the payment is received it is then used for the time that was already used. You can verify if this is what happened, check with email@example.com

This is totally off subject, but does anyone know about paid members and living in Canada? I have a friend who wants a paid account but doesn't know if she will have to pay the difference in exchange rates.
If anyone know I would be most appreciative for some help!
