Discussion Template in Lotus Domino 8.5 and RSS/Atom feed

with 2 comments

Today I was asked whether it is possible to add a RSS feed to the new Discussion template of > Lotus Domino 8.5. I was wondering about this question, since I have expected the template has a RSS or Atom feed. But after I looked to the template, I could not found a RSS or Atom feed. The discussion template has a nice user interface in the web, but no feeds. Has anybody an idea whether RSS/Atom feeds will be added to the template?

  1. Hi Rolf. You could create a copy of the template and add a feed generated using the RSSGenerator.ntf template that shipped a while ago. You can then surface content in your feed reader. Alternatively (or in addition) you could add a view from a discussion database to the sidebar and publish that as a widget. That’s assuming of course you’ve got any room left in your sidebar after getting over-excited about this feature ; ).

  2. Thank you for your hint. We have tried it today. Unfortunately, we found a problem by defining the feed: RSS Feed Generator doesn’t transfer the correct link. We can not use the widgets, since some users have no Notes clients.
