I registered by blog as a technical blog feed on my profile and as I understood I had to either give it a category or tag of "CodeProject" for it to be consumed. I've been very careful only to tech technical or code related articles in this way in order to comply with the rules.
however of late, every article is pulled no matter the category / tag. I've no actual problem with this except the articles I don't tag are then usually closed or rejected.
I'm keen to ensure only technical articles actually get syndicated here, so am I doing something wrong or is there a bug in the technical blog consumption feature?
This article was the latest one. <a href="http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/578884/Theplus-23TechEdChallengepluschallenge-e2-80-93win">The #TechEdChallenge challenge–win a trip to TechEd and More</a>[<a href="http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/578884/Theplus-23TechEdChallengepluschallenge-e2-80-93win" target="_blank" title="New Window">^</a>]
We aggregate the entry either by finding the <category>CodeProject</category> element, or by finding the rel-tag anywhere within the article content. This rel-tag appears at the end of that entry in your feed: <a style="display: none;" href="http://www.codeproject.com/script/Articles/BlogFeedList.aspx?amid=9502591" rel="tag">CodeProject</a>, so our aggregator gobbled that entry on up.
Right, I misunderstood what Tag meant in the docs then and since that plugin was adding it regardless everything was picked up. Add-in removed and hopefully my Category block should be identified each time I configure it.
Right just checked and one of the "technical link" plugins I was using until recently was adding something I wasn't aware of as a clickable link to code project, but it's not activated until someone clicks on it. Could be some readers were actually sharing it to code project without me knowing and TBH the plug in isn't supposed to do that.
I've since stopped using that plugin so will see how it goes now (and hopefully syndication will occur for those articles I do want shared on CodeProject)
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?

Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpfull answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
It very often that while reading an article i found some more article on other topics which i would like to read but currently its not possible.So i used to bookmarks article for later reading but after a while my bookmarks became over crowded and difficult to find what i read, what want to read and what are article i really want to bookmark.
So i would really appreciate if you add a button "Read it Later" on the article page like YouTube "Watch it Later".
One more thing i would like to be added:
Shot by Bookmarked date in "Bookmarks" because it very hard to find what i bookmarked last time.Every time i have to scroll till the end to find the one.
No idea if this is 'by design' or not but the icon on the tabs in chrome changes between the "old" forums (like lounge, site bugs/sugs , ....) and Q/A.
It's a very small difference tho but I think the Q/A one is newer (where the head of bob comes above the orange) and the "old" forums still have the old icon (where bob is completely on a orange background)
I think you mean the main logo that is in the top banner.
Not that one
When you open codeproject in chrome (or IE) the tab (from chrome / IE) displays the codeproject logo on it.
In chrome these logo's differ between the forums and Q/A (and probably other places)
In IE10 they don't
Haven't tested in FF.
I am still seeing it, even after obliterating the cache, browsing history, and download history. Chrome Version 26.0.1410.64 m. Article lists have a favicon with white bars, other places have one that is solid orange (Both have Bob on them).
Firefox does the same thing. As does Internet Explorer 10.
I think you may have a rogue favicon somewhere in the CP website tree.
Image upload has been suggested, proposed, discussed, debated and then destroyed number of times. The reason being it is highly insecure and may bring in a lot of parental control and IP issues.
However, you may like to host the image elsewhere like in Picassa or Skydrive and proceed sharing the permalink of the same along with the thread.
