Thanks to Chris Pirillo for bringing the problem to my attention and working through it with me.
I've completed a major rewrite of my OPML browser, Optimal.
I didn't manage to document all of the changes, they were so numerous. Highlights are:
- Object-oriented reimplementation, making it more portable to other applications
- Same code may be used as a WordPress plugin -- replaces the OPML Renderer plugin for WordPress
- RSS items now include descriptions, so you can browse the feeds without subscribing or visiting the home page
- New widget generator to generate HTML to include Optimal on your web site
I'm still working on a significant rewrite of my OPML browser, Optimal, but I've decided to release the current working version in the meantime because it addresses a couple of significant usability comments I've had.
- There are now links to expand/collapse all nodes, and
- There is a new query string parameter, depth, which allows you to specify the initial expansion state.
Minor bug-fix update to permit installation in a subdirectory of the web document root.
I've released a significant revision to my OPML browser: Optimal.
If you hate the name, just be glad I'm not going to camel-case it. 😉
Version 0.6 of the OPML Renderer Plugin for WordPress has been released.
This release primarily fixes some bugs and enhances some functions. In the works for the next release is inclusion of RSS feeds, which would enable feed grazing.
I've been monkeying around with rendering OPML in WordPress. Finally, I learned how to create a WordPress plugin, so I've created OPML Renderer, a plugin that renders valid OPML from any source as an expandable/collapsible list.
Thanks to iconophobia and the inlineRSS plugin for some code and ideas.
