Atom 1.0 for WordPress, version 0.5

Tuesday, September 19th, 2006

Announcing the release of the Atom 1.0 plugin for WordPress, version 0.5. This is a minor upgrade to version 0.4 that adds hooks so that other WordPress plugins can modify the default Atom 1.0 output. Current users need not upgrade unless they want/need to use these hooks.

Atom 1.0 for WordPress, version 0.4

Monday, September 11th, 2006

Announcing the release of Atom 1.0 for WordPress, version 0.4. This release fixes some bugs in version 0.3 where the main comments feed wasn’t working, and a warning from the feed validator about same-document references.

Note: I am told that this plugin is not compatible with the feedburner plugin. I have never used feedburner, so I don’t know how to fix this. I am happy to accept patches. You can use SVN to check out the development sources anonymously.

Atom 1.0, the better way

Wednesday, September 6th, 2006

After having mucked yesterday with my WordPress to add threading to my Atom feed, I found there’s a better way. I’ve taken James Snell’s Atom 1.0 templates, fixed them up a little bit, and packaged them as a WordPress plugin (instead of uploading them directly into the WordPress install, which makes it hard to upgrade WordPress). Installation instructions. Source code.

Update: James says his templates are public domain, and I am putting my changes and plugin glue into the public domain as well.

Threaded Atom for WordPress

Tuesday, September 5th, 2006

Update: go visit the WordPress plugin for Atom 1.0 here; it’s better.

After my rant about web fora, where I mentioned threaded Atom several times, I decided to make this blog produce threaded Atom. I’ve written a little WordPress plugin that will produce a single Atom feed for a blog which contains the entries and their comments, using the proposed Atom threading extension. I’ve put up a page with installation instructions and release notes.
