Question about URLs
Thu, Apr 19, 2012 at 8:13 AM by Dave Winer.
  • I want to put a link on every page that gets you the OPML version of the page. The back-end just looks for a format param whose value is opml. The question is what's the easiest way to specify that.
  • I could provide the fully qualified URL -- http://threads.scripting.com/41912ByDw/questionAboutUrls
  • Or I could leave out the host -- /41912ByDw/questionAboutUrls
  • Or I could leave out the path -- questionAboutUrls
  • But could I leave out everything?
  • It seems to work in Firefox.
  • Is it kosher?
  • PS: I added the feature. Click the orange XML icon at the bottom of this page you get the OPML.
