    So if you are like me and you like to know when people comment on stuff you put out on the internet you are probable a bit annoyed too. Because here on OTT/BoW you only get notified when someone replies in the forum or comments on your projects. Replies to comments don’t trigger a notification.

    Especially with comments on articles that has been bugging me some time now.

    And here is where using WordPress as a CMS (content management system) has it’s advantages. Because WordPress delivers content via RSS feeds.

    RSS (RDF Site Summary or Really Simple Syndication)[2] is a web feed[3] that allows users and applications to access updates to websites in a standardized, computer-readable format. Subscribing to RSS feeds can allow a user to keep track of many different websites in a single news aggregator, which constantly monitor sites for new content, removing the need for the user to manually check them. News aggregators (or “RSS readers”) can be built into a browser, installed on a desktop computer, or installed on a mobile device.

    If you want to subscribe to new articles add this URL to your RSS feed catcher of choice:

    That will deliver every new article that is posted. Now for the comments:

    That is all! Now all comments will be pulled from your RSS reader (Thunderbird in my case) and you actually get much more interaction on the site!


    Well, I think it is. Make from it what you will. Laters!



    Yer a wizard! 👍

    Oh neat, I never cottened on to there being RSS feeds available.

    I don’t suppose one exists for new forum posts? As that is what I often find myself trawling for. And if not, what sacrifice do we need to make to the OTTer gods to request one? =3

    @kiranamida sadly no. Not as far as I could find. But it helps if people use other peoples usernames in relies because that triggers an email notification.
