Comments Feed

I now have an RSS feed of the latest comments on this site, thanks to this template and Brian for explaining away my disconnect with RSS comment feeds. There’s usually some good information posted in the comments section and now you can keep up on those as easily as you do the rest of the posts on this site.
Also, I’ve got a problem with the template that I’d like some help fixing. I use the SimpleComments MT plugin to commingle my comments and trackbacks, but it needs to exist within an MTEntry tag. Is there any way for me to roll SimpleComments into an RSS feed?
[Update: TweezerMan has answered my call and built a template using the latest version of SimpleComments which doesn’t need to be in MTEntry. The lazyweb at work, folks.]

  4. The current version of SimpleComments does not have to be within an MTEntry tag (this was fixed in version 1.1 and 1.11). I’ve posted a combined comments/trackbacks RSS template on my weblog, showing one way how a combined feed can be done with the current version of SimpleComments. The feed created by that template can be seen here.
