About the updated 'Collector' program.

The Collector now outputs links and some initial text from blog posts that are new on one day only. These are published on a single page. To restrict output length without completely losing posts, some older posts, collected on the same day but dated more than 2 days ago, appear in a compressed form with clickable titles but no initial text.

The updated format has the advantage that new posts are instantly available on a single page without much scrolling. Links to the previous 2 days new output, if required, is available in exactly the same format. A total of 7 days new output is immediately available on single pages. Earlier output is progressively archived.

Over 35 blogs are currently being scanned.

Blogger and WordPress type blogs normally have RSS feeds that the Collector can read but others may not. Please contact iBerry if you would like your blog's RSS feed to be scanned but make sure it exists and that settings allow this! Please also note that a request not to scan posts is always respected.
