RSS or atom Feed


Hi @juliank ,

I'm feed user - prefer to aggregate all the blogs and news sources I read into a feed reader with their RSS or atom feeds. When I try to find a feed source for your blog URL (https://www.onlinedatabase.expert/blog), it comes up with nothing-- could you consider providing a feed for the blog?



Hi Jeremy


I've added an RSS button to the blog page - I'm not really certain how these are used so would you mind checking it out?



That worked, thanks.


The feed button just gives me the correct URL for directing my feed reader to access that .xml document. I was just checking against that main URL for the blog, and a lot of times blogs will redirect requests for a feed to the feed URL, or else feed readers are able to assume the feed URL from the main URL for the blog (I think the standard URL format is usually `/blog/feed`). Yours is a slightly different URL format (`/blog-feed`) so I think my feed reader's regex guessing algorithm couldn't find the feed or something.


But by pointing it directly to that feed URL that your button generates, I was able to configure it to pull down your feed.


Thanks, again.

  • Zoho have just announced an update of their developer platform for Zoho Creator aided at developers planning to build SaaS Solutions on the platform. Features will include lifecycle management, subscriptions and multiple tenancy. This could be a very exciting opportunity for people looking to build solutions for others. Apps created with the platform can only be sold through Zoho's marketplace - but this provides an immediately available route to market. I'll update this post when I know more.
  • Yesterday, FileMaker introduced their fully Cloud offering which seems to be offering fully hosted and cloud based server/client service for FileMaker apps. The apps are still built using the Mac or Windows based apps as before. This should be seen and a great move for FileMaker customers who can afford/justify the fairly large $39 per user per month licence fee - and with a minimum of 5 users. To put this price in perspective, Knack's Professional licence is $79 per month with unlimited users and Ninox is $8.33 per user per month! 10 User Comparison over 12 months Tadabase - $888.00 (for Plus plan unlimited users) Knack - $948.00 (Note - would be the same for 100 users+) Ninox - $999.60 Airtable - $2400.00 (for Pro licence) FileMaker - $4,680.00 That's certainly quite a spread of pricing - and in my opinion this doesn't reflect the value of respective products in any way.
