Site update - Blog syndication possible
It's been a while since last update of EPiServer World website.
The main changes are
- Blog Syndication (credits to Ruwen)
- Changes in Download page to handle new products
- and of course some bugfixes
If you already have a blog or if you blog at labs.episerver.com you can enter the rss or atom feed url when you create a blog, or on your "My setting" page. For example my RSS URL is,
Note. in order to enter an external feed you first need to create a blog in EPiServer World; which will be the blog URL displayed on this site. The blog syndication is a scheduled job that currently runs every hour. It is also possible to filter your blog posts on tags, e.g. enter "episerver" will only include the posts that you have tagged with "episerver".
The download page will be much more userfriendly and soon the new EPiServer Community and mail products will be up there.
If you are logged in and have not yet set any personalization in your profile, e.g. the role/title checkboxes, the forum and Faq lists on the startpage will be empty. But if you for example check the box developer you will now see the 10 latest developer posts, also if you choose any of the user categories you will also see the 10 latest user posts. If you are not logged in to EPiServer World you will see 5 posts of each dev/user.
Are you an EPiServer Certified Developer and it does not show on your profile? The reason could be that you have changed company, contact us if so and we will fix our infomation about you. Or you took the test over 2 years ago. The certification is valid for 2 years, but on the upcomming Developer summit you can take the new EPiServer CMS 5 Certification for a bargin of 500 SEK.
Finally a tip from my collegue Eric to you who want to get notified on your forum posts, use the RSS feed "RSS for this page". Mail notifications is a hassle.
It seems like the Blog syndication from Labs to EPiServer World is out of order?
