  1. I’ve seen in the source, function about RSS and Atom. Is there any way to add the strip to the rss of dotclear.

    By the way great plugin.

  2. I had done so in the first version, but I removed it for two reasons:

    • DotClear’s caching prevented the feeds to be updated when the publishing date of a strip arrived. It was only updated when a new post was made
    • DotClear’s current plugin architecture does not allow to add something to the feeds without modifying the code (it’d end up being a mod instead of a plugin) – which is something I’m trying to avoid

    I ended up moving it down in the development priority list (since I was already making a new entry every time a comic came out).

    Since then, DotClear’s caching has become less agressive. The upcomming version of the plugin allows to put posts online at a certain date (still needs someone or something to access the blog to trigger the update).

    I’ll review the RSS and ATOM methods of the plugin and see what I can do about giving details about a DotClear MOD for RSS (or maybe check with the guys at DotClear to see how they feel about extending plugin capacities).

  3. Wow, Dotclear comic plugin? sure this is a great news, i think my friend gonna need this plugin for her comic blog. Maybe she didn’t know yet. Thx
