  • How to add a FeedLand blogroll to a Drummer blog. #
    • You must have a Drummer blog and a FeedLand account.#
    • You can specify that all the feeds you're subscribed to are in your blogroll or use a category and only feeds in that category will be in the blogroll. #
    • The blogroll updates automatically, when one of the feeds has a new post, it goes to the top of the list.#
    • You can expand a feed to see the five most recent items. Click on the pubdate to go to the full item on the web. #
    • It supports keyboard navigation. Up and down arrows move through the list, Return to expand/collapse. #
    • We're working on WordPress plugin. #
  • Four head-level attributes in your blog.opml file. Only one required. #
    • blogrollUsername -- required#
    • blogrollServer -- optional, if not specified it's
    • blogrollCategory -- optional#
    • blogrollTitle -- optional, but you really should provide a title, otherwise we invent a silly one for you. 😄#
  • Screen shot of how the head-level attributes are set on Bull Mancuso's blog. #
  • Screen shot of the blog itself with the blogroll.#
  • A link to Bull's blogroll category on
  • A place to ask questions offer kudos, etc. 😄#
  • PS: I'm not trying to sell you on using Drummer to run a blog. Rather I needed a place to figure out how this works, so we know how to set up and document the WordPress plugin. #

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
