Date Sun, 12 Oct 2008 20:56:19 GMT


David Johnson updated ROL-1147:

    Component/s: Web Services

> Technorati/Roller Improvement
> -----------------------------
>                 Key: ROL-1147
>                 URL:
>             Project: Roller
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Web Services
>            Reporter: linda skrocki
>            Assignee: Allen Gilliland
> 1. Notification/Pinging:
>   - we want to get BSC/Roller blogs pinging Technorati by default
>   - a future alternative to pings is to use an atom based update service where we would
actually send updated content to Technorati rather than ping them to fetch the content themselves.

> Need to tweak ping code to allow a site admin to 1) modify ping settings for all weblogs
at a time and 2) enable pings to be automatically enabled.  scope: a few days of work
> 2. Parsing:
> - our default templates are not generating great html
> - we should try and update templates/themes to be html or xhmtl compliant
> - we should add atom auto discovery in addition to rss auto discovery links
> - we should add a Roller generator meta tag for better tracki
>   -   clean up the themes.  scope: a week?
>   -  add auto discovery and generator items.  scope: a day. 
> 3. Tags: - Once Roller has tags support we would like to be able to link our tags to
external tag spaces like Technorati, likely via a plugin of some sort 
> technorati tag plugin.  scope: couple days? 
> 4. Member API:  
>   - to truly enable users to get a benefit out of Technorati they need to register an
account and claim a blog, which is currently done manually  there is a new Member API in development
would allow trusted clients to register accounts on the behalf of their users
>   - with the Member API we could automatically create Technorati accounts for our users
(or at least instigate the process) and then associate that Technorati account info with a
Roller profile.
>   - this Member API will also allow us to query for interesting info about a user/blog
which we can reuse on our site.
> Technorati part: finish up the API and tell us how it works.  scope: ??
> Roller part: code up a way to use the Member API. scope: a week? 
> 5. Microformats
>    - we should try and use microformats wherever possible.
>    - in particular, consider hCard microformat on new profile directory pages.
> Roller part: make sure new profile directory uses hCard.  scope: unknown
> Tthis work is something that we can make part of the existing RFE to add a user directory
and profiling page.  shouldn't be much extra work to do this. 
> 6. Syndication/Widgets:
>   - Technorati offers a little javascript widget that can pull info about a blog from
Technorati and display it on a weblog.
>   - it would be cool for Roller to have some kind of macro that knows how to insert that
widget *if* the user has a Technorati account defined in their profile.
> Maybe Roller wants this macro in the core build.  scope: a day 
> 7.  Favorites:
>  - we can add some kind of link/widget that allows people to "add this blog to your Technorati
>  - at some point we may have a way to query Technorati for a users favorites and allow
them to be displayed on the weblog.
> 8. Search:
>  - we can offer an additional search option which allows for doing a blog search on Technorati.
>  - we can possibly offer a plugin/macro that creates a "who links to me" pointer to Technorati
to see how a blog/entry are being read on the net.
