I have written a blog system for myself because the ones out there are too feature-heavy for me. I want clean and simple and looking good on the small screen.
Now that it is done, I want to venture into the next step, but don't know how to even describe the step very well. I want to connect the blogs I write to a "system" that keeps track of blogs? I gather this is done with XML, but don't know where to go to learn about how to do it or what the hooks would be from my little system to the XML.
It's written in MySQL and PHP. Any pointers, esp. about docs that talk about what I'm trying to ask about. I apologize for the crummy question, but just don't know what to call this missing link.
Thanks for pointers.
There may be other forums that are better suited to this, but I'm not sure which ones are the best ones.
The metaphor I use is that, just because your stereo manual is written in English, does not mean that an English professor is best suited to answering stereo questions.
This [webmasterworld.com] is one forum that might be helpful, as RSS is commonly used for subscriptions between systems. Also, the people who are good with RSS may also be good with other systems.
Myself, I can't be of much help. One of the first things I do when I set up a blog is turn off all that stuff (I write sites with very specialized audiences, and we aren't big on exchanging information, links and getting high GPRs).
I figured out that I can manually insert keywords into the index page meta tag each time a new blog might make them worthwhile; eventually that may help with the search engines, but that's not what I'm after.
