RSS-feeds on CSDb

As some/most/few? of you know CSDb have some RSS-feeds for a few things like Latest Releases, Latest Forum posts etc.
This is not a new thing, actually we've had those for over a year, but lately I've been looking through them, and made a few little fixes, and even made a new feed for "Latest Additions, releases".

The reason for this post is just to make sure everyone knows of the existence of these RSS-feeds, and to get some feedback on them, and ideas for more feeds.

So speak up! :)

More info on the feeds available can be found here: http://noname.c64.org/csdb/rss/availablefeeds.php

Nice work! :-) Now how about putting a link to the availablefeeds page on the homepage so I don't have to search the forums when I can't remember where they were in the future! ;-)

He. Thought about that too. However, if you use Mozilla, you will notice a little RSS-logo in your browser when surfing CSDb, and by clicking on that you get a list of all the feeds. I hope I did it the according to the standard for that, so it works for everyone. (stole a bit html-code from other sites with RSS-feeds. :) )

Else I though about putting the little RSS-gif thingy on the front page linking to the available feeds, just couldn't figure out where to put it.. Ideas??

Yep I get the rss icon while browsing in Firefox, and that seems to work just fine! However that method doesn't tell me anything about the nice user configurable group releases for instance.

(Any chance of a release-comments feed? that can be configured by release id?) It would be a handy way of seeing the response a release is getting without having to keep visiting the release page or checking the comments on the home page.. )

As for where to stick a link/icon... how about a "feeds" tab? does that make sense?

Really Simple Syndication

Just a list of new topics in XML.
It's like a forum list with no markup :D

Hi.

https://csdb.dk/rss/latestreleases.php can't have parameters and always gives releases from last 2 weeks (approximately).

The following query can have parameters (example with 1000 recent releases) https://csdb.dk/latestreleases.php?count=1000&day=10&month=4&ye..

Currently, going through all releases IDs in reverse takes more time then needed, because there is a lot of old releases added in recent days.

Is there any possibility to extend latestreleases rss feed with more options, like "count"?

I'm also interested in this. @Perff, what do you say?

So I've been annoyed by CSDb comments appearing in the wrong order in my rss reader for a long time, and I think it's caused by incorrect timezone info in pubDates. For example, at 15:12 today Oswald posted a comment, but the pubDate is

<pubDate>Tue, 24 May 2022 17:12:18 +0200</pubDate>

It's 15:43 +0200 as I write this so this datestamp is two hours in the future. Hopefully simple to fix?
