Live Blogroll

Description

Live Blogroll will make your blogroll livelier. It will show a number of ‘recent posts’ for each link in your Blogroll using Ajax.

When the user hovers the mouse above the link, RSS feed from the site is automatically discovered and a number of recent posts is shown dynamically in a box.

Live BlogRoll uses internal caching for feed discovery and WordPress caching for RSS feeds to make sure everything is smooth for the user.

The looks of the hover box are fully customizable with CSS, and the position is editable in the options.

FAQ

How does it work?

Live Blogroll uses Ajax to dynamically retrieve lasts posts sites in your Blogroll. The posts are then displayed in a popup hover box.

Live Blogroll will first try to search for rss feed link supplied in your blogroll data. If not found it will load the target page and try to autodiscover the feed. If found this feed will be filled in to your blogroll entry for later faster access.

Live Blogroll does not show a preview for some of my sites, why is that?

The site may not have the RSS feed listed in it’s HTML. Or simply it is unavailable at the moment.
