Automatic Feeds with a few Quirks

April 4th 2008 | Tags: blog

So, in the interest of keeping this blog as simple as possible (for me), I'm providing feed information on the front page as hAtom marked-up data.

This is then passed through Subtlety to provide a regular Atom feed, which Feedburner is pointed at. Then I include a tag in the HTML head, and away we go.

However, I just noticed an odd little quirk (in google reader at least), in that if I edit a post that's still on the front page, even though the timestamps and description shouldn't have changed, the post body changing caused a duplicate entry in my reader. Go figure.

Hopefully, I can bump the Holmes article off the front page before I add more entries to it.
