Delicious and the lifestream

hi again, everyone!

As you probably know, Delicious changed hands last week, and the default lifestream feed for the site is no longer working.

I’ve solved this for my lifestream in the following way (full instructions for customising the new delicious feeds are at http://www.delicious.com/help/feeds ):

Go to your blog dashboard and to the lifestream section. Click “Generic” to add a new basic RSS feed.

Enter the feed like this:

http://feeds.delicious.com/v2/rss/username/tag (replace “username” with your Delicious username, and “tag” with whatever tag you want to restrict your bookmarks to. The tag restriction is optional).

Change the title of the feed to something like “New Delicious” or whatever you like.

If you want to keep the Delicious icon, you can use the one at http://edc11.education.ed.ac.uk/wp-content/plugins/lifestream/extensions/delicious/icon.png

This will only get you the last 10 bookmarks by default, so you may want to keep your old delicious feed as well.

Comment here if you have any problems or questions!
