Follow this tag

I created a tag-specific rss feed for my blot.im site, and you can too!

I’ll be the first to admit that I post a lot of disperate stuff to my website. Maybe folks don’t wanna follow it all? Maybe you just wanna follow my link log posts? Now you can!

I’ve added the ability to subscribe to rss feeds for posts with a specific tag. From any tag page, you’ll now find a link that (as of this moment) says Follow this tag.” Clicking that will expose the tag-specific rss feed.

Do you use blot? Wanna do the same?

3 easy steps:

Step the first

Create a new view to use for the rss feed. I called mine tag.rss.

Step the second

Paste the following code into the newly created view.

Step the last

Access the new view, someurl.com/tag.rss?name=pineapple, where pineapple is any tag you’ve applied to content on your site!

Now that you’ve got a working tag-specific rss feed, expose it to your readers somehow.

As always, huge shoutout to David, the mastermind of blot.im.

Of note: this functionality is currently undocumented and could change down the road.
