lemmy The current rss feed of a discussion is located at https://dev.lemmy.ml/feeds/c/blender.xml This returns an rss feed with the links to the original content. I need an rss feed exactly like th…

I linked the github issue describing this, but essentially the link field, which is the main one used by RSS readers, can either go to

  • the post link (if given), or
  • the post on lemmy which includes the comments (IE /post/xxx)

I’ll give these options below, vote on your favorite.

It should go to the lemmy url with the comments (/post/xxx)

This is the way we currently have it, but its not as easy to parse.

Reddit’s search result RSS feeds and Lobsters have a similar feature, FFIW.

I think this is best. Discussion is one of the most important parts of a forum like this.

OPTION 2

Actually, I agree with @kevincox@lemmy.ml – a URL param is a great idea

Actually, this post brings up an interesting topic - Lemmy-native polls, any plans to implement?

Someone that’s familiar with how other platforms are doing them could make an issue. Also they might be less pertinent here since we show upvote / downvote counts, and you can sort comments by Top to get the highest voted options at any point.

Makes sense, though that’s not exactly polls functionality 1:1, as users may just vote up for a comment, whereas other users can both vote up for their option and vote down for another option.

Definitely to the post comments, imo. Sometimes links contain enough ads/trackers/analytics that I don’t even open them and the discussion around it helps to get a good overview and also prevents link rot.

Option 2. Usually the post and the discussion are a value themselves, and this is actually the reason I browse for new stuff on Lemmy.

There could be a URL parameter to switch between the two options. But I think that this poll will say what the best default is.

Option 1

It should go to the post link
