A Template and Skin plugin to create an RSS Link and export the item with all of its comments as a RSS File. Cooperates with Trackback, might work without but untested.
This plugin is designed to export just one item as an RSS feed. It's a template plugin that adds a link to an item for an rss version of only that item, including the comments and trackbacks to that item. So anyone who joins the discussion on your website can follow that discussion in his favorite rss reader. (Counter / visitor unfriendly i know, but very user friendly for weblog junkies who follow a lot of websites)
Of course i've got this one installed at my site, since this was a feature i wanted myself and decided to give myself a treat. And now he's there, the new and improved plugin.
Features, exports an excerpt of the item, the complete comments, and all trackbacks for that item. By request, the plugin is bandwith friendly. if no new comments or trackbacks are available, then only a very very small file will be send. I tested this in feedreader, awasu, feeddemon, xulchannels and my own aggregator, they all understood what was going on.
Special note for the beta testers, you need to uninstall and install the plugin, since there is one option extra plus an administration table to see if the full or small xml file needs to be exported. Comments / Questions?
How can I use this plugin within my template/skin? Right now I don't know which code/variable I need to use, so that my user are able to click on such a image besides my item enabling them to read the item with a rss reader. Please help me. -ea (email@example.com)
Anwser: Just put the variable <%RSSItem%> anywhere in your (detailed-)template! -ea (firstname.lastname@example.org) :)
