[Wanted] Something I've been thinking about
Posted 12 August 2006 - 06:26 PM
What I would like to see, though not sure how feesable are somewhat custom RSS feeds for the forum.
You know when you 'subscribe' to a thread, well instead of being mailed when there has been a reply to a thread, how bout my own little personal RSS feed that my RSS Reader and look up from time to time?
Just a thought really. I would assume that the forum would have to create my very on RSS feed file that I could point the reader to. Now a forum with 20,000 members all using this could make the directories a bit...interesting on the server. Though being mainly text in a feed, I couldnt see them taking too much space up.
Would also have to write some sort of cronjob to periodically delete old feeds or old information within the feeds.
Oh.. someone is probably going to beat me to this in coding it up one day but I thought it would be nice to see if it could be something that PHPFreaks.com could one day impliment
