Right now our Twitter posts get mirrored to our blog; while we want our regular direct subscribers to see these - we'd rather not clutter up p.m.o. with them.  Could you change the subscription feed for the Songbird Blog to:

This is a filtered feed that is the same as our blog feed minus the Twitter posts.

This seems to have reverted back to from our feed URL above.

Could we get it re-updated to the feedrinse URL?

name = Songbird

Still using the feedrinse URL... What makes you think it's using the other URL?

Hrm, I still see our Twitter posts on PMO as of this morning (search for 'Songbirdteam Tweets for the week of 2008-10-26' and you'll see it).  The Twitter post only shows up in our blog.sbn.c feed, and not our feedrinse feed.

I assumed it had reverted to the feed since the URL on the right sidebar was directed to instead of feedrinse.

Since the "<atom:link href="" rel="self" type="application/rss+xml" />" in says "the one true and correct URL to fetch the content you just fetched is rather than what you used" it wouldn't surprise me if Venus does just that (though a quick look at the code didn't tell me where it does, if it does).
Comment 9 Stephen Lau 2008-10-29 11:51:56 PDT
hrm, ideally Venus would pull the feed entries & content from the URL configured (feedrinse, in this case), but in the right sidebar, the link to the actual blog would be the canonical URL in the feed.

But yeah, I've no idea what or how Venus is actually doing it.

Hi, I think we've found a better plan.... could we drop the umbrella "Songbird Blog" feed in favour of author feeds?  I'd rather see our individual posts as separate authors rather than the currently-anonymous-seeming "Songbird Blog", and this would remove problems like our Twitter posts, etc.

This would entail removing (or if it's using the feedrinse URL from your config and adding:

Ali Rayl

Ghislain 'Aus' Lacroix

David Bradley

Georges Auberger

Jan Leger

Francis Gastellu

Matt Crocker

Mike Smith

J. Paul Reed

John Gaunt

Rob Lord

Asa, racettura, and dria: ok to swap out one feed url and replace with 12 feeds?
Comment 12 Stephen Lau 2009-01-08 13:08:07 PST
You can drop preed's feed from that list, he'll just blog on his existing blog that is pulled into PMO already.
Comment 13 Asa Dotzler [:asa] 2009-01-16 15:57:03 PST
yeah. i'd like that. a=asa
