Changes to RSS feeds?

jdefontes | Jan 24, 2007 08:24 AM

Has anyone else noticed a change to the chowhound RSS feeds? Last week I was enjoying a feed that had one entry per topic, and the entry linked to the topic page. I could quickly scan my feedreader for new topics and ignore the ones I wasn't interested in.

This week, it seems like the feed has an entry for every new comment, and the entry links to the comment. It's a disaster. I'm seeing the same topics over and over again, and when I click the links to view the topic I'm dumped way down at the last comment on the bottom of the page, and have to scroll up to figure what's being talked about.

This change has basically ruined my enjoyment of the site and replaced it with an exercise in frustration. I really hope you can bring the old one-entry-per-topic RSS feeds.

(For what it's worth, I'm using the Sage reader for Firefox to pull the feed, but clicking through and reading the pages on the actual site. This is my preferred method, and works great for the other fifty billion feeds that I read.)
