This page is for documenting Best Practices for Examples Pages of real world web pages with one or more feeds that would benefit from additional explicit structural markup.
If a site has items from more than one feed, a feed-reader has no idea how to aggregate items from only one feed. Feed readers need a way to discover and choose which feed on a page they are aggregating.
Read one feed of many
It might be useful to have a way of specifying a wrapper for a a collection of entries in the case where there are multiple feeds on one page, and one wanted to read the entries of just one feed (e.g., the main blog feed, but not the sidebar tweets feed).
Search and indexing
Many HTML pages contain periodic/episodic content. It may be helpful to explicitly group similar/related/sequential episodes for the purposes of re-using this data in other contexts (restyling, search, indexing).
- blog-description-examples may have examples that could be incorporated here
real world examples
Links to public web pages, either popular or insightful that provide real world examples of the type of publishing that can be improved with a feed microformat.
Flat list of examples:
- http://blog.cuboxlabs.com (blog feed + tweets feed on the same page)
- http://ossguy.com/?cat=8 (blog filtered by category + tweets feed on the same page)
Most examples these days use hAtom already and thus check here for specific modern examples:
