Are parts such as News, Discussions, & Blogs the only types that can be RSS enabled?
Is there a way to have an RSS feed that displays comments posted on the "Wall" ?

Thanks,
Gary

Hi,

there are few more modules that have built-in RSS feed but Wall doesn't have RSS enabled. If you want to extend Wall you can do it by implementing IRssWebPart interface. You need to override the following to register module in the RSS engine:

/// <summary>
/// Overriden OnInit: support for RSS Engine.
/// </summary>
/// <param name="e">Event arguments</param>
protected override void OnInit(EventArgs e)
{           
    RssEngine.RssEngine.RegisterProviderModule(this.Page, this);
    base.OnInit(e);           
}

Let me know if you need more information.

Regards

Khorvat,

It’ll be a few days before I’ll be able to play with the
code, but thank you very much for taking the time to help, and for the code
snippet. I’ll update this thread once I’ve
implemented.

I’ve actually not moved forward with this tweak yet. I have several projects (some new, some just at the point of deserving major updating) that need to settle into a CMS platform so I’ve put development and customization on pause/hold, to re-evaluate CMS products currently available. My hope is that once I see, in more detail what MonoX is evolving into, I’ll have the info I need to decide which CMS solution is going to be the best fit for which project.

Bottom line, if this functionality is not in the soon-to-be-released new version of MonoX, I will pursue developing this functionality in projects that remain on MONOX after the above mentioned process is complete.
