Geekzone Gadgets Anyone?
Posted on 9-Dec-2005 18:45 by M Freitas | Tags Filed under: Blog



Is anyone out there interested in creating a Geekzone Gadget for live.com?

Perhaps something based in our Forum RSS and our main RSS feeds? For example we can supply a XML file with our forum list, and the Geekzone Gadget could show this list on live.com and load the appropriate Forum RSS feed (or main feed) depending on a user's selection (drop list, or time-based rotating all forums or just some select forums?)...

The Geekzone Gadgets should be usable on live.com and on Microsoft Windows Vista Sidebar (when released).

Anything using Geekzone data is ok, but I have a couple of suggestions I would like to see implemented first:

  • A Geekzone Forums Gadget: populate a drop down list based on a XML response containing our forums, and then populate a list based on another XML response with the latest posts based on the selected item on the drop down list;

  • A Geekzone My Forums Gadget: populate a list with the latest posts/replies in discussions where the user has initiated or participated before (this will require user name and password).

  • A Geekzone News Gadget: populate a drop down list based on a XML response containing out categories and subscategories list, and then populate a list based on another XML response with the latest posts based on the selected item on the drop down list;

    These are just some examples - feel free to suggest something you think could be cool and work well with our database. If you have an idea or can implement any of these ideas I would like to hear from you...
