Forums

 

It doesn't look like people discuss the current podcasts under this podcast forum.  Those discussions are on the individual podcast pages.  Is there an easier way to keep up with those discussions than repeatedly visiting the individual podcast pages to check up on them? I don't see any RSS feeds for discussions on all the individual current podcasts.  Am I missing something somewhere?

Thanks,

Jesse

 I use the 'Recent Site Activity' page (second link in the list on the left of each page, box with an Olive Drab background).  Shows new forum comments, new forum topics, new podcast/blog items and comments on podcast/blog items.

Experience is how you avoid failure, failure is what gives you experience.

I been using Google reader to catch much the same summary without having to log in until I see something I want to comment on.  Just plug the rss feed for the forum into it and it tracks it on your iGoogle page.

Using Google reader is great for posts on the forums. 

But, as far as I can tell, the posts under the podcasts are not set up for reading in RSS feeds. That would be nice.

Tool, 

Do you sometimes see multiple postings in Google Reader?

I am a fan of Google Reader as well.  It really helps me catch up, particularly after several days off of the forums.

 Don't know about Google reader but I have noticed that if someone posts an entry or comment then goes back and edits it then it will appear multiple times in the Recent Site Activity.  It looks like editing the entry counts as activity (fairly sensible, when you think about it) so you get a new entry in the list.  What it doesn't do is remove the old entry.  also if someone posts an entry then deletes it the link to the entry will still exist.  Maybe the same thing happens with the RSS feed?

I do see multiple postings in Google reader as well.  Stephens explanation sounds reasonable.

P.S., I just edited this right after first posting it, so, if it shows up twice, that supports Stephen's supposition.

Every once in awhile.....but I can't figure out if it was a double post +Deletion or not.  Doesn't matter.  If there is a double I just ignore it.  Steven is probably right about the cause.  Right after I read them I delete them from the reader screen.

 

By the way, Jesse, I think that this is the podcasts feed: http://www.manager-tools.com/podcasts/feed/rss2  I could be wrong.
