AntiTwitter: @DalekDave is now a follower!
I've got a my technical blog RSS feed imported into CodeProject, and my first 3 articles were imported successfully. Just looking at my feed in CP though, it says that the last import was done on 7-Apr-21 6:17 (1 month ago). There is definitely new content there that hasn't been syndicated to CP.
Has my blog been blacklisted or something to that effect?
Is there anything I could have done to kickstart the process? I think I read that feeds are meant to be ingested hourly, but it looks like mine was inactive for about a month or so. Or was there something in my feed that caused it do be dormant until manually invoked?
The hamsters will correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe articles are now slotted automatically, based on their tags. So you have to play with the tags until your article lands in an appropriate category.
If Chris is listening, I predict that this scheme will eventually go the way of the Wool Reserve Price.
When you edit an article, there is a section at the top for adding tags. You can add them manually, by checking boxes, or automatically, by clicking on a button. I believe the automatic approach looks for keywords in your article. If you never added any tags to your article, I'm guessing that they were added automatically.
EDIT: I quickly looked at all your articles, and they all have tags. Some make sense, and others...
EDIT: I tried and seems hamsters are acting up again. Changed the tags for Stern-Brocot Trees and their Applications to "Algorithms" and "C++" making sure I don't press "Detact tags automatically". The end results is: "C++", "XML", "Objective-C", "Algorithm"
It's been a few years since I was active on Codeproject. And I've noticed a change, or it might just be a feeling. Is it so that people don't engage so much on other developers' work these days?
There used to be lots of comments on every new article.
I think that the feedback, and the discussions are one important drive to make developers share code and articles, anyway.
I believe that articles are now categorized based solely on their tags. This is a very recent change and may still be in flux. There is no longer a way to explicitly categorize an article yourself. All you can do is play with your tags until your article ends up in the category that you think appropriate.
