Subscribing to blog labels or categories

Sunday, February 04, 2007

There will be times when you're only interested in receiving RSS blog updates which revolve around a particular theme. Many blogging platforms allow you to monitor individual categories via RSS even if their feeds aren't immediately apparent. Below I've compiled a list of the URL structure required for each kind of blogging software...

Blogger - http://blogname.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default/-/label/

Drupal - http://blogname.com/personal/subjects/label/feed/

Expression Engine - Reliant on individual blogger configuration.

Movable Type - Bespoke configuration required so feeds vary.

MySpace - Don't care and you shouldn't either. Nothing has ever been written on a MySpace blog that's worth reading.

Serendipity - http://blogname.com/rss.php?version=1.0&category=4 (hover over the category link in the sidebar to reveal its ID number)

TypePad - Depends on the way the blogger has configured the software.

Vox - http://blogname.vox.com/library/posts/tags/label/atom.xml

Wordpress - http://blogname.com/tag/label/feed/

Additions, corrections and any other feedback would be very welcome.
