August 2003
This is a custom view script I wrote for my feed on feeds [2252] install, removing a bunch of details/options I don't need. Most importantly: I have no desire to read people's weblog entries in anything other than the original design, so descriptions are out.

It's still basically a flat listing of recent items sorted by date, except I made it so adjacent items are grouped together in one block if they happen to be from the same feed; resulting in something that would look quite nice in a narrow side frame or searchpane (IE-users can click here to open it in theirs--can't wait for Firebird to support this).

Source (script, template and stylesheet):

(Update: I have since totally changed the look of my /feeds/ page so don't be surprised if these templates make it look rather different)

Thanks for including the source files for this Milo. Also again for posting to the script in the first place. I'm slowly (When I get the inclination) customizing my copy. fof is a kick ass script. The proof of this is in the meta pudding. I saw this post from fof. =)

I installed feedonfeeds last week, and haven't touched FeedDemon -which is an outstanding RSSS reader- ever since!

My OPML is on-line, so I can watch my feeds anywhere I want. The only thing I really miss is a notification feature, telling you that there was a new post. To compensate I use a meta refresh-referral to the updatefile and back to the feedview again. But that isn't really the same.

The code to fof seems pretty straight forward so it should be too hard to add an update by email or somesuch.

This works in Opera, too. Step 1: Use <a rel="sidebar" href="feeds/"> Step 2: Add target="_main" to any link in the feed (your ?target=_main causes an JS error in Opera 6).
