    Ray, Sent the file. And I like your idea about the HTML page and then the RSS feed. Nicely done :) Cause, I agree, it is not very clear that you are going to an RSS feed. What is this FireFox auto detect thing you are talking about? Is that the live bookmark thing or something?... read more »

    Ray, I figure it is good to have it in the outgoing email as you can only really use the RSS feed ONCE you have submitted a comment. But, of course, you can access it as a direct URL without coming from the email. As far as the P tags being escaped, they might just be escaped on that page, becaus... read more »

    Rick, Ok, it should now return ALL comments for any blog entry that YOU commented on. As far as the limitations, I am only getting the top 50 comments. Its ordered first by: 1. The posting date of the comment DESC 2. The date of the web log entry DESC 3. The time of the web log entry DESC Does th... read more »

    So I have a beta of this up and running at: http://www.bennadel.com/index.cfm?dax=blog.emailrss&email=[EMAIL] Now, as far as the GUID goes for the link, can this include the ## url hash? Or must the script_name / querystring be unique?... read more »

    Rick, Dynamite explanation! I was not aware of such PNG gamma issues. I knew there were issues with PNGs and the transparency, and have seen all those DirectX work arounds. But, mostly, as you say, I don't mess around with images in that way. I am talking about straight up screen captures. But I a... read more »

    Rick, This is what I have so far: http://www.bennadel.com/index.cfm?dax=blog.emailrss&email=[EMAIL] I am basically joining the comments to the blog entries on the id's and the email. I don't bother getting the blog entry content, just the comment content. Now, this get's ONLY your comments... do... read more »

    Rick, That could work. But really, that is a minor detail. Once the script is up and running and creating the feed, switching around fields is like zero work. I am just wishing I wasn't at work right now ;)... read more »

    Posted on Aug 31, 2006 at 2:51 PM

    Rick, How would you feel about the comment going in <description> rss field. Then the original blog entry title going in the <category> rss field. That way, I suppose depending on how the RSS reader works, you could view only comments within a given category (ie. blog post)? Otherwise... read more »

    Rick, That is pretty cool. I like that it integrates with Mozilla. My favorite little app for this sort of thing is the GadWin Print Screen: http://www.gadwin.com/printscreen/ It allows you to take screen capture and save to file, clipboard, both, or whatever. Its reallllly useful. And since, I a... read more »

    Rick, That sounds like a cool idea. I can certainly set that up. Just give me some time. I am new to RSS stuff, so I am not sure how would I group the comments by blog entry? or would all the comments come through in one list and then just have a category tag of that given entry? Basically, what st... read more »
