Well, it’s a start. I’m building the aggegator into my Manila sites, and I’m liking it for the simple fact that I can access it and modify it from whatever Web connection I might be on at the time. It needs some tweaks though, like being able to limit the number of entries for each feed for one. I’m hoping that’s in the works. It’s also a bit bulky to subcribe since the admin person has to set all the feeds that people on the system can subscribe to. At some point it would be nice if MEs have the ability to subcribe to individual feeds as well. But for now, I’ll be adding a whole bunch of newspaper sites and getting my kids to start aggregating as well. Should be interesting.
Jake says that:
More features are planned including permalinks, comment-links, and posting stories from the aggregator page as new news items (for news items oriented Manila sites).
Potential for some cool new fun!
(Now, does anyone know how to format the headline text in the aggregator? I know the Hahvahd site looks better than mine…)
