RSS Feed sorting

I've noticed that the RSS feed by default sorts on last activity.

However, I'm not really interested in reading the same blog over and over again because someone replied to it. I tried adding a sort parameter myself, but this does not seem to wrok.

Can we have RSS feeds that reflect the sorting and filtering which we do directly on the blog list?

Or simply an RSS feed with only the newest blogs

Hi,

In addition to the default RSS feeds, at the bottom of any generated list across SCN there is a link to an RSS feed. The feed reflect any filters/sorting applied.

It's best to perform this when not signed into SCN too match how an RSS reader would interpret the list.

For example, go to http://scn.sap.com/content

You can also do this for the content tab of a single space if you want to follow blog or discussions or document or all content from that particular space.

jason, thanks for the quick reply.

yes, i'm aware of this link to the corresponding RSS feed. unfortunately, this doesn't work either. just take your given example and check out the feed result. the generated RSS feed is always sorted by activity, it doesn't matter what sorting option you chose beforehand.

Hi - Here's s feed I found that lists blog posts by creation data, system wide (across SCN): http://scn.sap.com/blogs/feeds/posts

good find - looks like an option that the OP could be perfectly happy with.

though for me, i'd very much prefer to subscribe to content from select spaces/places only. so, please keep investigating this.

jason, since this question has been marked as 'answered' by the OP now:

do you still plan to post your investigation results regarding my issues with more specific RSS feeds here? feel free to create a follow-up topic if preferred from a moderator point of view.

Hi Jens - Yes, I'm working on a doc about RSS feed and will publish it later today or, latest, tomorrow.  There are fees everywhere and I need to check each one first.

Cool, thanks for the help Jason.

And thank you Jens for bringing attention to the topic.

I'll keep an eye open for that document about the SCN feeds.

None to report: what we have is what we have for the interim.
