  • There's a new plugin that adds a blogroll to a WordPress site. #
  • It would be helpful if people who are regular readers of Scripting News who use WordPress, set up a test site, give it a try and let us know how it goes. You can help us get to the next level with this stuff. #
  • So there are two sides, the FeedLand side and the WordPress side.#
    • The FeedLand side. Sign on to FeedLand, create an account if you don't have one, and subscribe to a bunch of feeds. These will be the feeds in your blogroll. There are some tips on how to find feeds, in the next section.#
    • The WordPress side. There's a new plugin, developed by the people at the Team51 group at Automattic. They have a checklist for how to install the plugin in a WordPress site. #
  • You can get ideas for feeds for your blogroll from reading other people's feed lists. When you see a checkbox that isn't checked, you can subscribe to the feed simply by checking the box. #
  • Have a look at my feed list for ideas. Here's a list of recent users, click on their names to see their feed lists. You don't have to finish this now, you can come back and tune this up anytime.#
  • Developers: Use feedlandBlogrollToolkit to add blogrolls to other platforms. #
  • If you have questions or comments, or need help getting it working, post a note in the discussion group here. #

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! :-)
