Syndicated Search/Embed List of My Threads in My Site...


It should be made possible for website operators to grab a list of their posts and/or threads from LQ to put in their website. Maybe something similar to the syndicated rss feeds that are already set up but that allows me to say, setup a page on my site dedicated to my LQ Threads/Posts and have it autoupdate... possibly request a page ID for people with lots 'n lots of threads so it doesn't just dump 1000 threads/posts onto one page... Or, even better, make it possible to feed search results to a web page... So say I had a web page dedicated to Wireless Networking in Gentoo. I could have a sidebar that would display the results of a search on LQ for "Gentoo"+"Wireless"

i can see where you're coming with with that, it would be a clever idea to have dynamic rss feeds based on posted parameters, however that could lead to a situation where a popular website with a link could be hitting LQ searches at a scary rate. this would be backend processing that LQ would not be able to control, and could put a much higher load on the backend.

Nice idea certainly, but i'd say the overhead couldn't be justified.

Chris is (unfortunately) quite correct here. It's a great idea, but would be extremely resource intensive.

How about a required banner ad. Sites that use this feature either have to pay for it or include certain LQ ads on their site.

-AND/OR-

An interface that can I could say have a script connect to to update a listing in my MySQL database say once or twice a week. Even have it check the last update time so that it doesn't grab listed threads/posts I already have, thus reducing the backend load on LQ or better yet, my script would only update if 2 conditions were met:

1) Someone is actually looking at the listing on my site.
2) It hasn't updated in the last 48-72 hours or so.

Just an idea. Heck, I would even be willing to help implement it if ya'll decided it was a go.
