Warwick News & Events RSS

Writing about web page http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/insite/newsandevents/

You can now get RSS feeds for any Warwick news page.

At the above news page, you'll see a nice big RSS button at the top, subscribe to that feed and never miss out on any Warwick news.

    Arg, but it doesn't have an associated <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" tag in the HTML, confusing Firefox and actually making it stupidly hard to add to the bookmarks toolbar :(

  2. Sadly it is a tricky one because of the way that external content is embedded in SiteBuilder. The news & events pages are actually pulled in from another server, but I don't think they are able to alter the HEAD element :(

  3. Ahh, turns out it was just that view not working properly, most news views do in fact expose the right header.

    I have been subscribing to several of these RSS feeds generated by Sitebuilder pages for a while now. For some reason, every now and then they seem to flag up old pages as unread new entries (but with the original time stamp). This is very annoying.

    I am yet to work out whether they are genuinely new entries, but that the "last updated" thing on the page hasn't changed (don't know why this would be), or whether there is a bug somewhere. Either way, it sort of makes the whole thing unusable, as you cannot trust the RSS reader's claim that there are unread articles.

    I don't think this is a local problem, as I've experienced it with two different RSS readers.

    Is this something that you're aware of?
