RSS Feeds support

Post by provolino » Thu Mar 31, 2005 10:37 am

Hi all,
can you add full rss feed supporto to avant?
I mean something like maxthon where browser recognizes when you are on a web site with rss and a popup asks if you want to subscribe it

also I'd like a rss sidebar to manage all feeds easly

please check firefox/maxthon to understand better my suggestions :)


thanks a lot

Added to the Master Request/Suggestion List as RSS detection. If you'd like the sidebar request, please start another thread. - hornakapopolis

You didn't read the rest of his post.

The RSS features he would like are not functional in Avant.

thanks all
the main features I miss from Maxthon is the ability to recognize if a site i'm surfing on has rss and ask if you want to subscribe it with a popup and a rss sidebar with all subscribed rss :)

Request: Automatic RSS detection

Post by T-PO » Tue Sep 20, 2005 12:22 pm

Hello everybody...

I have a request (I did a search but I couldn't find anything)...

I would like to see that Avant detects RSS feeds automatically when entering a website.

So, for instance I enter the site http://www.tweakers.net and Avant notices me (by using Messenger-like toasts) that this site also has an RSS-feed. I can click the toast and the "Add RSS feed" dialog is started....
It would be nice when the URL of the RSS-feed can automatically be filled....
I click OK and the RSS-feed is added to the Channels section....

Hope this is clear...

Regards,

T-PO

I really like the way Maxthon handles RSS feeds : A little icon at the bottom to let me pick a RSS feed offered in the current page, nice.

I would like to add my support behind this feature request as well. Opera also has a feature like. A blue rectangular box appears in the address bar and you can click on it to subscribe to the feeds from that site. I believe IE7 beta 2 also has a feature like this where the RSS icon lights up when a site that has feeds is accesses.

I think it would be excellent addition to the RSS support for Avant. :D

at least have a context menu item to subscribe to feed when you right click on it.

Here's a bookmarklet that will open a popup and show you any feeds defined in the header, followed by all links in the body. Hover over the links for the titles. I modified a common links bookmarklet by looking for links in the header with type="alternate" (auto-discovery). Just right-click this bookmarklet and add to favorites. From the links popup, if you have your feed toolbar showing then you can drag the feed links directly into it.


[url]javascript:var a='',d=document;var h=d.getElementsByTagName('head')[0].childNodes;for(var i=0;i<h.length;i++){if(h.tagName=='LINK'&&h.rel=='alternate'){var l=h; a+='<a href="'+l.href+'" title="'+l.title+'">'+l.href+' ('+l.type+')</a><br>';}}a+='-----<br/>';for(var i=0;i<d.links.length;i++){var l=d.links;a+=i+': <a href="'+l+'" title="'+l.text+'">'+l+'</a><br>';}w=window.open('','Links','scrollbars,resizable,width=400,height=600');w.document.write(a);[/url]
rickdog It appears this BB won't format the a ... into URL.

I would like to see something like news notification, where avant can be set to pop up new news from the sites you have in your list.

Ain't this is available in Avant Browser 11?

Version 11 hasn't been officially released yet, so it makes sense that we'd still see some requests for its features.

I would like Avant to detect when there is an RSS feed, but I would not like to have a pop up box showing up on every blog I visit... that would be VERY annoying.

Although Avant 11 has been released, Im still hoping that rss detection is added in the later builds

Hello,

I’m new on this forum and I write from Germany ( gives perhaps a Germany support forum for Avant? ). Excuse me for my bad English.

It is with Avant possible, that this detect RSS Feeds automatically? That is very important for me.

Thank you.

As a long time user of FF I gotta say I'm impressed by Avant, even if you naturally don't have the same extensive plug-in support.

Nevertheless, I really hope you would do something to the RSS support. I see the automatic detection being requested for a few years now. Do you think it will actually ever happen? Also, the RSS reader should have some way of marking the individual posts read/unread. And I have more than a few feeds it just doesn't seem to recognize at all (not direct links to xml-files). All stuff FF handles without care.

Thanks.

I am afraid without Automatic Feed Discovery, I can't use Avant. I will go with Firefox and check in in what, a year? LOL...
