Hi,

will there be a rss-feed option or any other function so that visitors get a message when new images are online?

thx!

There is already an RSS feed in X3:
https://demo.photo.gallery/feed/

We may have to polish it a bit ...

Do you think we can use it, already?

Oh nice :)
But yes, it should be polished a bit ... any plans / roadmap for this?

It's already been tuned through several updates. What exactly are you looking for? A feed is just an XML format output, so there is no design involved of course.

it could contain some more information.
Right now, it's only showing just the short name of the page that was edited.
It would be nice to have some information like: "added new photos to: Galerie"
Or "Changed the content of..."

I haven't tested the output if you write some text on a page - [As far as I could see right now, it does not show up in the RSS even if I create a new page]

Well, it's a page feed, reflecting your pages, not an "event" feed ... I don't see what reference would be used for "added new photos to: Galerie" or "Changed the content of...", because RSS entries are pages, and I don't see what 3rd party user would have any interest in "changed the content of". Considering RSS is not used much any more, especially not in X3, because it represents mostly "gallery" websites (not news or blogs), there will not be any new advanced features added to RSS feeds.

Furthermore, it would make sense that the link should be clicked if the 3rd party wants more info. Beneficial for the website owner. In terms of how "polished" the feed is, eg technically correct, we won't be adding new advanced features to a relatively outdated and little used technology.
