Hi,

I've had a nice little idea and was wondering if anyone would like to work on it with me: a personalised news portal.

We could have a new icon on the toolbar which would lead to the page and users could subscribe their favourite news sites which provide RSS headlines (more on RSS).

I would like to develop this just for me if no-one else is particularly interested, but I quite like the idea of developing this site as a communication portal.

That was my idea a while back, but Nelson didn't like it.
I think it would be great!
Skills slightly lacking on the development side though!

Ah, well not to worry, it's just XML stuff and this site is built on it, so it shouldn't be too much trouble. May tackle it when I get a free weekend!

Hey, hey , hey I do like the idea; what I didn't like was that the actual site's contents would come from somewhere else (ie, the articles on the front page)

Well that's why I thought each user could create their own list of news feeds, so that they'd log-in to BH to view all of the news sites that only they are interested in. For example, I might have CNN.com and BBC, while others might only be interested in Linux news, for example!

how do you write articles here anyway? No link from forums that I can see or front page

You need to be a forum administrator, although I've been considering making it available to any subscribed user, subject to checking by an administrator.

Might be a little difficult to implement and so goes down on my list of 'things I'd love to implement'.

:o)
