Random/Cycle RSS Feeds

Postby deco » Mon Jun 11, 2007 2:59 pm

The RSS Feeds are my favorite feature of WPC. I keep 2 feeds on my desktop to keep up with the latest news. However, there are so many more feeds I'd love to track. What about a method, within the layout, to say "pick a random RSS Feed from my list" so that, at each timed refresh it would pick a new RSS Feed to display?

I'm not sure how this would work, mind you :-) I currently do 2 feeds - each one displays the titles + descriptions of the feed's 1st 5 items. So, I guess there would need to be some mechanism to indicate "random feed 1" from "random feed 2" from "random feed n". Or you might have a better idea :-)

BTW, really looking forward to the new version of WPC!

I'm glad you like it and your suggestion is an interesting idea. I'll put it on the todo list, however, it will not be for the next version anymore because it's too late in the development cycle.
