I am really surprised at how many companies websites don’t have RSS feeds for their news and press releases.
I was setting up a new function on Digital Print Forums which will automatically pull in RSS feeds and convert them to posts for the users to comment on. So I decided to surf around and see if the different websites relating to print have RSS feeds. Very few have them, some that do, don’t follow standard formatting or display rules.
This is really fustrating. I don’t want to have to surf their sites every day just to get their news, they should send it to me. Frankly, RSS offers the easiest and simpliest way to do it.
Oh well, my rant for the night.
