RSS News and content syndication

RSS Feeds

By Mark Pilgrim:

"RSS is a format for syndicating news and the content of news-like sites, including major news sites like Wired, news-oriented community sites like Slashdot, and personal weblogs. But it's not just for news. Pretty much anything that can be broken down into discrete items can be syndicated via RSS: the "recent changes" page of a wiki, a changelog of CVS checkins, even the revision history of a book. Once information about each item is in RSS format, an RSS-aware program can check the feed for changes and react to the changes in an appropriate way.

RSS-aware programs called news aggregators are popular in the weblogging community. Many weblogs make content available in RSS. A news aggregator can help you keep up with all your favorite weblogs by checking their RSS feeds and displaying new items from each of them."

There are quite some RSS clients available for various platforms.


UnrealAdmin.org news

News syndication of the UnrealAdmin.org is available via this URL:

http://www.unrealadmin.org/rss.php

This feed uses the RSS2 (a.k.a XML) standard, If your reader doesn't support RSS2 you can switch the format to the old RSS format by appending ?type=RSS to the URL. However, this output contains much less information, so it's better to upgrade your RSS reader.


UT200x User Mods & Maps

Additionally we also provide a RSS feed featuring the latest User Mods and Maps releases posted in Epic Games' UT200x User Mods & Maps forum.


Usage

The location for the RSS feed is: http://www.unrealadmin.org/auummr.rss (Atari UT200x User Maps & Mods)

By default it will list the last 10 entries in the "Full Releases" forum.
You can use the following options to control it's output:

beta=true
list entries from the "Beta Releases" forum

prefix=false
remove the type prefixes from the entries (e.g. [MUTATOR])

max=value
list up to value entries (between 1 and 100)

desc=value
changes the way the description is shown. If value is full everything is show. In value is a number, up to number characters are shown (default is 300). In any other case the description is omitted.

types=1,2,3...
a comma seperated list of types to include in the output. By default this value is: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,20,21
The numbers have the following meaning:

0 Delete me
1 MAP-DM
2 MAP-TDM
3 MAP-DOM
4 MAP-CTF
5 MAP-BR
6 MAP-AS
7 MAP-ONS
8 MOD MAP
9 MAP Pack
10 TC MOD
11 Mutator
12 Gametype
13 Model
14 Skin
15 Sounds
16 Vehicle
17 Utility
18 Service
19 Recruit
20 Movie
21 Official

So for example, to only list map releases without the prefix, max 25 entries use:

http://www.unrealadmin.org/auummr.rss?prefix=false&max=25&types=1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10

The feed is only updated every 30 minutes. So requesting an update more than every 30 minutes is useless (so don't do it).

The feed is sorted on release time, posting replies in a release thread won't alter the release time. This way the latest releases will always be on top.
