The validation is redone everytime the feed is requested. If there are no errors, the feed will be empty. Silence is golden, in other worlds.
A link to the source code is also included on the above page.
Do you have to set up an individual feed for every page? That would take me a week or something.
As is, yes. You can't just put in a site; you have to specify a file.
Since the source code's there though, you should be able to adjust it to your needs.
Dynamically generating the source perhaps?
That whole concept has some great possiblities beyond just validation.
Simple site monitor?
You mean using RSS to monitor wether there is something new on a site? Well, I never thought of that, but it is so crazy... it might actually work!
Seriously: If you want to "monitor" sites for changes that do not provide an RSS-Feed, a lot of Aggregators have a kind-of "scrape and monitor" functionality already included. But for "custom-requirements" funneling recurring, automatic "tests" through RSS is a nice idea. (Not really new, though.)
Also, some nice scraping it does, doesn't only tell you if your site is validated or not, tells you the error also and sends a separate item for each one.
