Filtering Roller Feeds by Category

Simon posted today that Pebble supports RSS Feeds by Category. Just so you know, Roller also has this feature, - just add "?catname=categoryName" after /page/$username. Here's all my current categories.

This is a great feature to have in your blogging software. Without it, would be getting all my posts, rather than just my Java and Roller categories.

I did know about this feature, however my assumption from simon's post was that it was automatically generated. I guess in the roller world it was translate to have a macro that automatically shows the list with links. Again, im assuming that you created these links by hand. Please feel free to correct me.

Arjun - ahhh, I see your point and stand corrected. That's a cool feature of Pebble - to generate the list automatically. You are correct, I typed in the links above manually.

The Roller #showRSSLinks() macro, which I use on my blog, creates those links for you automatically, so you have no need to stand corrected.

One need that I have had recently is to be able to combine categories into a single view. I realize that the possible permutations could get out of hand for filtering entries, but this request seems like the most general and useful one. As much as I enjoy reading about the children of my developer buddies, it is probably best to filter that content while browsing for work-related information. I think this could be easily implemented by taking advangage of an HTTP array for a category. The link would be something like Web. Perhaps making a simple "generate link" form would be ideal as well. You could have a list with checkboxes for category, then a radio button for the type of feed and a button which says "generate link."
