New link doesn't work either--or at least not anymore!

Anyone found a suitable workaround? Note: it looks at first like an official Post page, but the links all return you to the same page!

Perhaps just a temporary glitch? Or for how long have you been experience this bug at WP?

I've noticed the same problem for the past few weeks. The first page works and then one more page, usually "World", but sometimes "Style".

This problem does not seem to be temporary. I have periodically checked on it for several weeks but in the meantime I've deleted it from my iSilo channels because of this. Perhaps this site would be a candidate for some of Alex's magic along the lines of MSNBC and the Washington Times (he wrote hopefully).

Thanks

I made a link for you to test to WP's Top News:

http://www.mobileread.com/avantgo/wptop_mobile.html

One unfortunate problem which we also recently saw with our C|Net channel: WP checks the referrer for the printer-friendly links. Since it sees our site as the referrer, it doesn't display the printer-friendly version but only the normal version of the article, even though we have the correct printer-friendly url. Interestingly, if you don't transmit any referrer, the printer-friendly link *is* shown. It would be nice to have a feature in Sunrise or iSiloX to either spoof the referrer or to at least disable sending it.

I'm afraid this is as good as it gets with the current referrer problem. Give it a try and tell me what you think. I could easily add more WP channels then...

Alexander,

The new link works for me - would be great to have other sections created.

Thanks for the work - I hang out here daily to get the latest. One can never have too much information on their Palm.

Say, that's great. Link works well. It's too bad the Post set it up so that tapping on the headline takes one to a brief first then the full story rather than directly to the full story.

Now that the Post is taken care of, what about the New York Times? The last version of the iSilo link I used create monstrously larger files (the graphics for the first letter of each story) so I changed it, no first letter hence smaller faster files, but one still has to scroll down through pages of non-useful links to get to the headlines.

You are the second who mentions this as a negative point. Originally intended as a feature, I come to think it might be better to change it. I will think of a nicer html output, but probably not before January. The whole system is still very beta, and I also intend to build a database-driven system next year.

Here are the other links:
WP Top News
WP Politics
WP Nation
WP World
WP Metro
WP Style
WP Business
WP Technology
WP Health
WP Education
WP Real Estate
WP Real Sports

As I said, I wish the printer-friendly links would work. But they only work if the referring site is WP or if the referrer is turned-off completely.

I think the feed require an update. Why did noone inform me? Lynn?

I'll have a look at that asap.

What can I say? I got used to it...

I'm just thankful to be reading ANY WP content on my pda.


Btw, are you taking requests on the update? I have a few but I don't want to tax you.

Maybe I miss something, but they work if you change in each link:

.html?nav=rss_technology
for
_pf.html

Using your link, and as an example, I created this:
http://tupalmx.com/pruebasphp/grab_wpost1.php

and it works with iSiloX.

Thanks for the hint Montalvo! WP changed the format of the URL to the printer-friendly version as you pointed out. I fixed the links accordingly!
