LiveJournal Client Discussions


[mood |curiouscurious]

I am working on basically a specialized RSS feed aggregator that is aimed toward blogs. Basically I am trying to make a universal friends page that works on any site with an rss feed. What I would like to do is retrieve at least the number of comments for each entry.

Is there anyway to do this? I am writing this whole thing with php/mysql.

Along with that...

Dianoga is also looking for a way to show private entries for people.

if you check the RSS feed under users/username/data/rss you'll see there isn't any info on comments, just another link to the article. what we are trying to get is the # of comments, or a link that only shows IF there ARE comments. not just the 'add comments' section.

I've been looking for the xml stuff for loging in with a client, but it a bit complicated to jump into that part straight off without anything else. anyone have any advice for 'logging in' without ever actually sending the user to LJ?
