AvantGo and RSS

One of the aims of the update to WWF-Australia’s website was to improve RSS support across the site. The new CMS enables RSS for pretty much all types of information, including articles, events, news items, jobs, and volunteer opportunities.

I’ve provided a bit of background on RSS on the site for those that don’t know what RSS is.

We enabled auto-discovery of feeds to each relevant page. One of the happy side-effects of doing so is that AvantGo supports auto-discovery. Which means our CEO anyone that uses AvantGo can simply include the URL of a news article or the news list page into the AvantGo channel manager and you can view the WWF-Australia website from your PDA/mobile device.

It’s nice when things like this just work
