You can now syndicate content
That's right. You can now grab the latest 10 thread titles and add them to your site. I am using RSS 0.91. Just grab your favorite RSS parser and include as your news source. Feel free to post if you have any questions.

We now also have an Atom feed:


trickykid 10-13-2001 11:01 PM

cool, i will have to add this to one of my sites once i get it all completed on everything else i need to do with it....

jeremy 10-16-2001 02:18 PM

A few people have contacted me saying that they were interested in putting the latest threads on their site, but they do not know how to setup an RSS script. Now RSS is the standard synication method, but I try to be accommodating ;)

To include the latest 10 thread title as a bulleted list simply insert the following code into your page:

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE=JavaScript SRC=""></script>
BTW - if you do decide to put set this up feel free to drop me a line so I can take a look at your site. Thanks.

Thnx Jeremy, now Im using RSS, and I was wondering how hard would it be to implement having the first 2 sentences added, instead of showing just the posts title?
I know, there's pros and cons, and ppl usually dont get to the point before sentence 10 :-]
But, would it be hard to add?

jeremy 11-07-2001 01:18 PM

A put this on the TODO list.


Aussie 12-06-2001 05:53 AM

Done....2nd box on the right at

graystarr 01-06-2002 12:18 AM

Just wanted to say thanks! It works great

check it out in action

Noerr 05-26-2002 08:32 AM

You should put those messeges to usenet as well, since may of linux people are using newsgroups and discuss there mostly.

danrees 05-26-2002 09:30 AM

Jeremy, that's a great idea to boost traffic.

A shame I don't have a website to put your content up on. :p

Goatdemon 12-06-2002 06:00 PM

p2 is a nice site, good job. (i didnt inspect the content though)

nouse66 03-04-2003 09:45 PM

why dont you use that feature on THIS site? i think it would be much more usefull than having the "security rep" stuff at the top.

i guess no one likes this idea....

Crashed_Again 05-07-2003 02:30 AM

Ummm...I was messing around with postnuke last night and so far of come up with this. I think the section is the coolest part of the page. Thats pretty neat Jeremy. Thanks!

trickykid 05-07-2003 03:03 AM

Yeah, you can see my in action on my personal site here:

Azmeen 05-23-2003 11:10 AM

Is there any chance you would generate forum-specific backends? I would love to grab headlines of the latest posts in the Slack forum.

Thanks in advance!

MasterC 05-23-2003 12:03 PM


There is also a thread on this, search the site for:


jeremy 05-23-2003 12:18 PM

All set:


MasterC 05-23-2003 12:26 PM

Ohhh, damn I'm an idiot sometimes :)
I see now..


And the kicker... I thought this was a different thread (Contrib member thread). I really really should get a beatdown for that.

Azmeen 05-23-2003 09:21 PM

Thanks jeremy... and you too MasterC ;)

rmartine 05-23-2003 11:38 PM

Excellent... When I get time I'll fix my personal page straight away..

MasterC 05-30-2003 02:12 AM

Here's me:



rmartine 06-03-2003 02:13 AM

Hi jeremy,

The slackware specific backend seems broken now... Was there any adjustments made on it on the past few days?

It now lists new posts on ALL forums!

Check it out:

jeremy 07-17-2003 01:48 PM


Sorry for the delay. If you would like to use either the slackware or security specific feeds please use the following URL's:

You can still use for the general feed.

Thanks jeremy!

darthtux 09-27-2003 04:44 PM

I just install a RSS Reader plugin for Mozilla Firebird which open in a sidebar. Does anyone know I can stream LQ with it?

Lostman 11-10-2003 03:31 PM

I know it's an old thread but there is a theme available for Superkaramba that uses your feed. Puts it right on your desktop. Real nice. I'm behind a firewall, so I can't look for it, but check out

rmartine 11-11-2003 02:41 AM

Weee!!!! More people using my theme!!!!


LinuxLala 12-27-2003 11:01 AM

Gr8 Jeremy.

I will soon put this on my web site, that's as soon as I have revived it. :)

sxa 01-01-2004 02:36 PM

I added that script on my page..

secho 03-11-2004 05:02 PM

rock, any plans to syndicate more features?

Azmeen 05-05-2004 11:45 PM

The Slackware (and Security) forum backends are broken again...


XML Parsing Error: not well-formed
Line Number 1, Column 9: Latest threads at

jeremy 05-06-2004 09:14 AM

Thanks Azmeen. I will look into this ASAP.


jeremy 05-06-2004 09:52 AM

This has been fixed.


Azmeen 05-06-2004 08:59 PM

Yay, it's working again now. Thanks jeremy... you're the man!

Axo 06-10-2004 03:30 AM

Jeremy, latley when iv'e clicked on the last of the treads i get,

No thread specified.  If you followed a valid link, please notify the webmaster. If you know what you are looking for you can try a search
Its no big deal, just thought i'd mention it.


jeremy 06-10-2004 09:08 AM

Thanks AXO. The code looks good. Is this happening to anyone else?


AfroNinja 06-18-2004 03:21 PM

It would be cool to be able to pass a parameter to the PHP script to tell it how many items to return.

Just a thought.

jeremy 06-20-2004 02:46 PM

Due to the amount of people syndicating LQ content I had to move to a system that uses caching, so this would unfortunately be tough to implement.


jeremy 06-30-2004 03:55 PM

Just a heads up. An Atom feed has been added.


mimithebrain 07-17-2004 12:34 AM

jeremie your link is wrong
XML parsing error

fatal parsing error: the document is not in the correct file format in line 10, column 47
edit*** the link in the first port ***edit

jeremy 07-17-2004 11:53 AM

mimithebrain, I'm not getting any errors for backend.php and it validates fine with the couple validators I have checked. Can you clarify the error you are seeing? Thanks.


mimithebrain 07-17-2004 12:33 PM

sorry of my mistake
the bug is not from you
I shouldn't have this this comment being innexperienced in RSS.
Another newbie learning that konqueror does not display RSS pages.

When it comes to the error in the script, firefox does just fine running it.


BroX 08-02-2004 05:27 AM

As I am new to this RSS thingie, some questions:
I use firefox 0.9.1, but when I hit a RSS button, I always get the following displayed:

This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.
Do I need to install some software to be able to use RSS?

I installled Sage for firefox, which gives me the option to view RSS feeds in the side bar, but all I see there are my bookmarks.

I searched the forum, and got pointed to this thread but it didn't explain me much about how this is supposed to work.

Cheers, Leon.

Azmeen 08-02-2004 07:24 AM

I'm not a Sage support guy, but I'll try to help a fellow LQ member (and Slackware, Firefox user at that ;) ):

Firstly, create a new folder in your Firefox bookmarks and call it News Feeds (the name doesn't actually matter, but this is just an example).

Now it's time to populate this folder :)... Let's add the Slackware forum feed there. Right click this link:

And choose Bookmark This Link... from the context menu. In the Name field, type LQ's Slackware Forum.

Expand the bookmark folder list by clicking the Arrow Down button, and select the News Feeds folder. Finally, click the Add button.

Now go to the View top menu, select Sidebar and finally Sage. Sage should appear as a sidebar. Click the Options button and choose Settings from the dropdown menu.

At the Select Feed Folder dropbox, choose News Feeds and click on the OK button.

You should be all set now :)

BroX 08-02-2004 08:00 AM

THANKS a LOT Azmeen!!! All set ineed!

Cheers, Leon.

Projekt2 08-02-2004 09:21 AM

Just added the feed to my site


mimithebrain 08-05-2004 09:19 PM

skubee 08-22-2004 09:22 PM

the security backend is bringing up the the wrong articles. looks like its using the main rss feed. hope this isnt just me. :/

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 12:28 AM.
