Page2RSS

I’m back in Keeping Current mode these days, wanting to come up with some case studies on a "How-To-Do-It-Good" approach. One tool that I have been playing with is Page2RSS, which basically takes any static URL and creates a feed with any new changes in that page. A great idea, theoretically. The one problem it has is that I can’t rule out specific parts of a page, like the date, which changes daily on most sites (usually via javascript). Take a look at this page. See what I mean? If only Page2RSS took a "page" from Web Site Watcher (the king of keeping current tools), I’d be thrilled. Page2RSS is really close to being an amazing tool. I hope they continue to advance it.

    Thanks – I will have a look at this also. We’ve just added a RSS feed to our Library News web page using the Dapper http://www.dappit.com/ service. I found it great because you can isolate the part of the page that you want monitored for the feed using a visual selection approach.
