    Welcome to the tenth edition of the USN roundups. With this edition, I'm proud to announce that the USN roundups are going mobile! For those of you who can't wait to get home and check out the latest User Submitted News (which I'm sure you all are) can now go on your mobiles or other internet-enabled devices and check out the weekly roundups from there, so you can get your roundups on the go! There are 3 versions: text, html and rss. I've offered 3 versions in an attempt to cater to the most amount of people possible. The text version is for those who have the most bare bones mobiles, or for those who can't even view web pages and can only download. It strips all links and colour formatting, but none of the content. The HTML version is the most similar to the roundups on the forum, with colour formatting and links, although a smaller image to cut down on downloading costs <strike>(although not on this edition, sorry!)</strike>. The RSS feed is there for those of you just quickly want an update without having to open up the browser, wait for the page to load and all of the other complicated stuff. The RSS feed will offer links, but no images and slightly different formatting. I hope you all enjoy this new feature! Remember, the latest roundup comes out every Monday (in most cases), but I've setup another link so you can check to see if a new roundup is out without having to download a whole page. The links will always stay the same, so bookmark it to get it quicker!

    Wow, that was quick! [​IMG]

    You're welcome, Eternal Myst, I'm glad you enjoy it [​IMG]

    I'm going to mention here the RSS feed doesn't play nice when bookmarking it on the PC for some reason. Works perfectly fine on my mobile, though. I need to see why this is, but I figured releasing it anyway (as it's primarily meant for mobiles) is better then having to wait.

    I've modified the post so now there's an RSS icon in the address bar (for those browsers that support that). Awesome.

    EDIT: Also forgot to add the link which shows you the latest number, which I've done now.

    Wow, how on earth did I miss that little error. There was an ampersand in the title.

    Does it work now? I'm really sorry about this, this is my first time working with RSS, so I don't know all of the ins and outs.

    Ah hah! So THAT was the issue! It turns out, you don't put at the end of the file! I figured it worked exactly the same way as html (where you'd traditionally end the file with , but I guess not! This has solved all issues I've had with the RSS feed so far (not working on certain mobiles, bookmarking RSS, etc), so now it all works the way it should be. Of course, if you have any other issues, please tell me [​IMG] I thank you all for being patient for me being such a novice at this stuff! [​IMG]
