New GroupServer feature list

From E-Democracy.org

This is a list of newly released GroupServer features and customizations used at http://forums.e-democracy.org

This list is designed to assist our technical support team and forum managers in using and explaining these features.

Insert Subscribe Box for a Forum

You may now insert a subscribe box to start the subscription process from an external web site.

The HTML code to use is available on pages like this - replace "bemmy-forum" with the listname of the desired group.

Example instructions: http://forums.e-democracy.org/groups/bemmy-forum/admin_remote_request_register.html

Web Feed for Topic Searches

An ATOM feed for topic searches: http://forums.e-democracy.org/s/search.atom

You can create your own custom feeds by:

  1. Preforming the topic-search you want.
  2. Replacing anything in the URL between the last "/" and the "?" with "search.atom"
  3. Then use the feed as needed.
  4. Examples:

To insert JavaScript in a web page using E-Democracy.Org to render the feed, edit from this code - Adjust listname@ in this case "mpls" to the group you want and the final number "10" to the number of topics you wish to display:

<script language="JavaScript" src="http://e-democracy.org/feeds/feed2js.php?src=http%3A%2F%2Fforums.e-democracy.org%2Fs%2Fsearch.atom%3Fs%3D%26g%3Dmpls%26a%3D%26t%3D1%26p%3D0%26f%3D0%26r%3D0%26i%3D0%26l%3D10&chan=y" type="text/javascript"></script>

If your partner site can render local feeds we recommend you do that directly. Sites using our feed processor (the JavaScript thing), should notify us.
