Nick Bradbury announced today that shared news aggregator site ReadBurner has added Newsgator (ie FeedDemon) shared items feeds to their site. This means that us FeedDemon users can join all the cool Google Reader kids over there.
Along with including NewsGator feeds, they’ve added NewsGator as a tab up the top of their site along with Google Reader & Netvibes so you can read your feeds without leaving the ReadBurner site. While that’s not a huge feature to me (FeedDemon FTW!) I’m sure it would be handy if you used the Newsgator web interface.
Here’s the instructions from Nick on how you add you Newsgator clipping feed:
Here’s how it’s done:
- If you haven’t done so already, share one of your clippings folders as an RSS feed (this screencast explains how this is done in FeedDemon).
- Copy the URL of the shared clippings feed to the clipboard (in FeedDemon, you can do this by clicking the “Copy” link from the clippings properties).
- Browse to http://www.readburner.com/
- Go to the "Add Feed" option on the right hand side of the ReadBurner menu bar, then select “NewsGator Clippings” and enter the URL of your clipping feed.
Also, as Nick mentioned, FeedDemon allows you to share web pages as well as feed items. Just drag the url into your clippings folder & it will get added (Just the title, the content of the page won’t be added).
This is great, and a great boost for Newsgator & FeedDemon as they get more visibility in the RSS reader market place. Remember kids, FeedDemon, along with the syncing ability of Newsgator is free! You need to download it now.
Update: Here’s my clippings folder on ReadBurner.
It’s just showing up as ‘Link Blog’ despite me putting in my alias. Oh well, I’d prefer to have my name there, but at least it’s working! Drew from ReadBurner responded to my issue & has already fixed it, thanks Drew! (see comments below)
