Post subject: Automatic Blog Links Coming

We have started a beta program for BOB recognized bloggers this week. What does this mean? If you are a blogger and a BOB member, and if your blog features posts on appropriate topics, then you can request that your blog be registered to your BOB account. After the BOB administrator team reviews and approves your request, your signature will automatically include links to the 3 most recent posts on your blog as published via an RSS feed. Your blog must offer an RSS feed in order to subscribe to this feature, at least for the initial version.

Recognized / authorized blogs are scanned once per hour and signatures are updated soon after.

If you would like to participate in this program, please post your blog URL as well as your blog RSS URL in this topic. For the initial release of this feature we will only support Wordpress-based blogs. Other blogging platforms will be tested and implemented based on demand. We do not have any requirements as to blog frequency but we do expect quality material. Blogs that do not meet these conditions will not be approved and/or may be dropped from the program.

As part of a future enhancement, we would like to add all registered blogs to our search engine as well, so that when you search BOB you are not only searching our topics and posts but these authorized external blogs as well. This feature is on our roadmap but may or may not ever be completed. After experimenting with BOB-hosted blogs we felt it was more appropriate to allow folks to continue hosting blogs on the platform of their own choice, but the idea of being able to search those blogs is still attractive. More details will be posted if / when that feature ever becomes available.

Any plans of supporting SCN or ASUG.com blogs in the future?

Dallas, your RSS feed returns some unexpected results. Instead of links to your blog, the feed shows links through feedproxy.google.com. When I test the RSS with a browser, it's full of ads.

Jamie, I started with wordpress because that's what I have to test. icon_smile.gif If you can provide a couple of links to RSS feeds from asug.com (public, obviously, can't log in) or SCN, I'll test them out.

I wouldn't bother with ASUG right now (it's still totally closed and may, for all I know, stay that way forever). I probably wouldn't bother with SCN either, since they are changing out there platform in the next month or so. If you do get bored, though, here is my current one.

The feed from SCN is definitely in a different format. I would have to recode some of the read script so that there is a source (blog type?) included so I know how to extract the information I need.

Then I'd definitely hold off until they are on their new jive platform. I believe that is scheduled for next month.

Kevin, you're all set.

Dallas, your blog is pending a response to my question earlier about the blog links and format, thanks.

The rss link in your header goes to feedburner, which is not the same format that we can read right now. There is also a /feed/ link which fits the format but the URLs have extra information. The full URL is
Code:
http://crystaldashboardtips.com/2011/04/xcelsius-dashboard-presentation-and-design-configure-qaaws/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=xcelsius-dashboard-presentation-and-design-configure-qaaws

... and all we really need is a bare URL
Code:
http://crystaldashboardtips.com/2011/04/xcelsius-dashboard-presentation-and-design-configure-qaaws/

If you're okay with me using the hidden feed URL and stripping down to the bare URL for linking purposes I'll go with that.
