Title
Website RSS Feeds
Content
<h3>RSS Feeds</h3> Being built on WordPress, our site offers some nice features like the ability to receive customized RSS feeds.  If you're unfamiliar with RSS feeds, read <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RSS">this Wikipedia article</a>, which explains it very well.  In a nutshell, RSS feeds enable you to be notified about new content on a website without having to manually check that website. Our site offers the <a href="https://www.bodhilinux.com/feed/">standard RSS feed</a>, which will notify you of <em>new blog entries</em>.  However, you can also be notified of type-specific content, like a new application being added to our AppCenter or a new Wiki article being published. All you need to know is the base address, which is <strong>https://www.bodhilinux.com/feed/?post_type=,</strong> and the name of the Post Type you want to receive notifications about.  This means a feed link will be structured like this: <pre style="text-align: left;">https://www.bodhilinux.com/feed/?post_type=[posttype]</pre> <h4>Post Types</h4> Currently, we have two post types that can be used to receive feeds: <ul> <li><strong>AppCenter</strong> - For new <a href="https://www.bodhilinux.com/a/">AppCenter</a> content.</li> <li><strong>incsub_wiki</strong> - For new Wiki content.</li> </ul> <h5 style="padding-left: 60px;">Examples</h5> <p style="padding-left: 60px;">The following feed URL will notify you of <em>new applications in the <a href="https://www.bodhilinux.com/a/">AppCenter</a></em>. <a href="https://www.bodhilinux.com/feed/?post_type=appcenter">https://www.bodhilinux.com/feed/?post_type=appcenter</a></p> <p style="padding-left: 60px;">And this one will notify you of <em>new <a href="https://www.bodhilinux.com/w/wiki/">Wikis</a></em>. <a href="https://www.bodhilinux.com/feed/?post_type=incsub_wiki">https://www.bodhilinux.com/feed/?post_type=incsub_wiki</a></p> &nbsp; <h4>Categories</h4> You can also narrow down the content the feed provides you by adding a category to the URL. This is done by adding an ampersand (&amp; symbol) followed by the name of the taxonomy the category falls under; followed by an equal sign; followed by the category you want to narrow down to, which will result in a link structured like this: <pre style="text-align: left;">https://www.bodhilinux.com/feed/?post_type=[posttype]&amp;[taxonomy]=[category]</pre> Every post type has its own taxonomies, which are: <ul> <li><strong>softwaregroup</strong> - For the <a href="https://www.bodhilinux.com/a/">AppCenter</a>.</li> <li><strong>categories</strong> - For new <a href="https://www.bodhilinux.com/w/wiki/">Wiki</a>.</li> </ul> <h5 style="padding-left: 60px;">Example</h5> <p style="padding-left: 60px;">This one notifies you of new <em>icon type apps being added to the AppCenter</em>: <a href="https://www.bodhilinux.com/feed/?post_type=appcenter&amp;softwaregroup=icon-sets">https://www.bodhilinux.com/feed/?post_type=appcenter&amp;softwaregroup=icon-sets</a></p>
