I have been doing a bit more work on "A Better Planet", my attempt at creating a more up to date and relevant version of the Planet WordPress feed. So far all the feedback has been positive and we have seen downloads in the hundreds just from my post here on WPLift. The good news is that the plugin was added to the repository this morning so you can now use that to download the latest version here.
How it looks in your dashboard :
I also created a quick one-page website for the project which details briefly what it's about and how you can access the feed.
There are three ways you can access the feed :
I also did some work on the feed itself and changed how it is handled - before it was a little unstable and sometimes showed duplicate entries. With the new method it has been working perfectly and will be updated with new entries every 30 minutes.
I am now looking for new submissions so I can hold a monthly poll to pick new sources for the feed, if you would like to submit your site or someone elses that I have missed out, please contact me and let me know!
