Support » Plugins » My Subscriptions: Livejournal Friend’s Page style

  • My subscriptions
    I sort of missed my livejournal friends page on my Wp blog, and so with a little help from friends, I created a page on my WP blog that lists the entries from blogs I read, in the order in which the entries occured.
    I use feedonfeeds for this.
    This previous thread is how it came about.
    The advantages are:
    1. You get to read all recent entries from all the blogs you are interested in.
    2. The page to manage the adding/deleting of links you read are .htaccess protected
    3. It looks good — well “integrated” into the regular WP template.
    4. The entries are paged.
    This probably does not qualify as a hack, or a mod, I don’t know for sure, but I thought someone else might be missing their friends page, or might want a way to read the blogs they read on one page, in chronological order.
    Please let me know if you are interested in knowing how, or doing the same.
    Cheeri-O!

  • Works now.
    The way I had written the Rewrite was the problem,
    I changed
    RewriteRule ^subscriptions/(.*) /index.php?subscriptions=1 [QSA]
    to
    RewriteRule ^subscriptions(.*) /index.php?subscriptions=1 [QSA]
    Thanks for the heads up.

    well i had like to have something like this…
    what does it do?
    call the rss files of the blogs i enter and grab the latest feeds and aggregate them on a single page? cool…
    i was thinking abt asking a similar sort of a hack 😀

    Sushubh,
    Gat wrote http://wiki.wordpress.org/index.php/ShowSubscriptions
    The difference being that that lists your blog-reading list.
    I changed view.php from FeedonFeeds, to suit my needs, along the lines of Gat’s suggestions.
    I will get my lazy ass to write a how-i-did-it sometime.

    hmm and i will wait for that plugin…
    actually i was looking at a smarter hack 😛
    running the hack file loads the rss codes, take the latest 10 posts from all the blogs and give me the latest 10 posts sorted by time on a single page… scary one does not it! 🙂

    Is there a plugin on the way to do what you described? Whats it called?

    dude i was describing what i would like in a similar sort of a hack!
    and this was what came to my mind what i saw that matt has included a field for rss in the link manager! 🙂

    Sorry dude, I couldn’t make out what the previous post said, and hence the questions 🙂
    Anyways, if you are happy with the way it works, I’m happy.

    Finally, I wrote it all down.
    Check out FoF powered subscriptions hack for instructions and files for doing it yourself 🙂
