RSS Feed with Comments

There's been much talk lately about RSS feeds and comment feeds and all sorts of other things. I was thinking about doing a comments feed, but have been too lazy to investigate it. However, Jennifer was wonderful enough to post her RSS template with full posts and comments, so I made a copy and added it to the sidebar if you prefer to read Neurotic Fishbowl that way (or just click here).

I haven't tested it in a newsreader yet myself, so let me know if you see anything wonky.

FYI - look for the p tag that is just before the MTComments tag - move it inside the MTComments tag (next line) to make all the news readers happy. :)

I just checked this out in NewzCrawler, and it looks fine to me! I have newsfeeds and separate comment feeds, but this is ultra-cool! Going to install it now! :-) Thanks for posting this!

Heh, I should probably read your entire blog before I comment next time!

Wow. I implemented it before seeing it work and I have to say for someone like myself who reads the majority of her blogs late at night, this is *awesome* to be able to read each post and all the comments so readily. I love it. This new template finally has me fully converted to a feed reader - and that's saying a lot.
