So a friend of mine got me thinking about making some changes to DNNBlogs.com tonight, mainly putting Google Adsense ads into the RSS feed for the site.

Before I do that though, which I think is fairly easy, I figured I would make a post about it and solicit feedback.

Do you have your blog included here on DNNBlogs.com, would you be offended if ads were included into the RSS feed?

Do you read dnnblogs.com via the RSS feed (most people do, the site gets minimal traffic but good RSS stats), would you be opposed to ads included in the feed?

Let me know!

DotNetNukeBlogs.com has been updated to the latest release of DNN 05.01.03, the upgrade went very smooth and the site seems to be running even better. The site is also running a prerelease version of Engage: Publish that also has a number of performance fixes as well.

I took some time last week and got DotNetNukeBlogs.com upgraded to the latest version of DNN, 5.1.2, and also made a few other enhancements. I’ll be testing out some more enhancements over the next few days. For those blogs who can’t seem to syndicate good HTML in their feeds we’ll be stripping all HTML and trimming the descriptions down for posting on the home page.

We will however still link directly to the blogs, just as we’ve always done. At DNNBlogs we don’t intent to try to steal your content for our own purposes like some other aggregation sites, we post your syndicated content and link directly to your posts, not to another page on our site.

 

We also corrected a problem with permissions which was preventing people from being able to add URLs or modify existing URLs, if you run into any problems of that nature please let us know immediately.

I've updated DotNetNukeBlogs.com to try and handle some issues we've had consuming Feedburner feeds, randomly they would work, a few times a day, where in most cases they wouldnj't work.

Actually the change that was made wasn't part of the module on the website, but more of a change with the RSSToolkit, the change is outlined here.

We'll monitor the feed consumption and see how the new changes work out.

Thanks for your help and  patronage of the site!

I got some feedback from JoeSak today about the RSS feeds here on www.dotnetnukeblogs.com, the feeds were having the HTML formatting stripped out of the descriptions when they were built. I've removed that functionality so that all the HTML formatting should included with the feeds now.

It might take Feedburner a bit to catchup on this new formatting though.

So with the success of the website here at DotNetNukeBlogs.com we've branched out and started providing two new RSS feeds. One for Spanish DNN blog posts and one for Chinese DNN Blog posts. As we get other languages supported with new feeds we will setup categories for those as well. If you've been holding off submitting your feed because it isn't in english now is the time to add it!

So based on the fact that DNN is a worldwide phenomanon I should have planned for this in the beginning. Today I received the first non-english RSS feed for DotNetNukeBlogs.com. I am going to work today to get something setup for a way to handle these type of submissions. It will take me a day or two, but I will get something setup for the non-english speaking feeds to be aggregated here as well.

So the first month of DotNetNukeBlogs.com has been a good one. We are currently aggregating 16 different RSS feeds relating to DotNetNuke with over 450 blog posts! We'll be working on some more features for the site over the next couple of months, don't forget to check out  our "Cool Stuff" page in which you can get some additions for your own websites!

We've had a few submissions so far that don't really fit within the realm of DNN and some that just don't have enough content. If you've submitted your feed yet don't see it being aggregated here yet, get some more content on your blog relating to DotNetNuke and then let us know so we can review it again for relevancy!

For the past few months I've been working on a project in my freetime (what free time) that I am proud to say has finally been launched! Check it out at DotNetNukeBlogs.com. The goal of the site is to provide a single source providing links to the best DNN blog posts across the web.

Today is the day that DotNetNukeBlogs.com goes public! We'll be making some official announcements later today on various DNN and ASP.NET related sites, but for those of you who made it here early you can try the site out and let us know what you think!

Another quick site update tonight as we prepare for an official launch on Thursday July 3rd. I made some tweaks to the Engage: Publish module to better display content from an administration point of view with regards to the blog post approval process that we are utilizing here in the early stages of DotNetNukeBlogs.com.

I'm proud to announce that Lee Sykes and Mitchel Sellers have both signed up and added their very information DNN blog feeds to the collection here on DotNetNukeBlogs.com as well! Thanks to both of them for their great efforts in the DNN Community.

A big thanks to our fellow administration Cuong Dang for getting our new skin created and applied to the website this weekend. We've got a few more tweaks to make to the site/content and should be making some launch announcements here soon!

I spent some time tweaking Engage: Publish and the "Consumer" module that I've written for consuming RSS feeds. I noticed a problem with pulling in RSS Items by trying to compare date/times. So instead of consuming items based on the datetime, we're now looking to see if an item already exists based on the title of the item and the author id. Ultimately I think it will require modification to check for both dates and titles, but for now we can remove any items that show up because of a simple title change.

So far we have one blog, other than my own, feeding into the aggregate. Last night something went haywire with the consumer and caused the latest post from that one blog to get entered into the system about 40 times, basically every 15 minutes from the time I made a change in the database.

I've shut off the consumer for now until I get this fixed, hopefully later today.

So we spent some more time today working on functionality for the website. Right now you can register with the website, once registered you can add your own DotNetNuke related feeds to the website. Check out the About Us page for some basic rules out about service.

One of the features here at DotNetNukeBlogs.com will be to highlight interesting DNN sites that we come across. The first one I want to bring focus to was brought to my attention today by my boss.

Take a look at http://bugnetproject.com/

At first you might think that it is not a DNN site, it looks like another software package that used to be "open source" but never really was.

Great implementation!

We're putting together the functionality for this website over the next few days, as well as working on a skin for the site. Come back soon as we become the ultimate go to place for all your DotNetNuke information!
