If I’m going to create a Web log as Web site that has things feeding from and to every which place, I think it’s time to roll up my sleeves and start learning some more Manila.
Trying to figure out how Pat funnels Terry‘s column at the eBN site. I get that it’s the RSS feed of a separate Web log that he has set up for Terry to post. And I’m also guessing that he uses the includeHttp macro to do it, though I may be wrong about this. Bryan Bell talks about using it for the Kern site, and I know there are some limitations. He uses it in conjunction with the printFriendlyLink macro, and I can get it to work on the Prefs-Advanced page here, but not on the home page. I think there is a CSS element that Pat is using too because I can get it to work but the text is all screwed up.
Tried the viewRssBox thing too, and that worked better. It actually may be what Pat is using. The only problem is I couldn’t seem to reduce the column width…hmmm. If anyone wants to take a look at my play space and send some help, have at it.
So much to learn, and when I have the time to play, I make some baby step progress. I still wish I could find the manual.
