Comment Feeds on Individual Posts
Another great Greasemonkey-powered mod for Blogger. Thom has written a proxy to convert comment pages to RSS, & whipped up a script that provides an individual comment feed for each post. This way, your readers can just sub to the conversations that they want to track, or to the comment threads that they contributed to.

If you're not a Greasemonkey user, & you're not ready to dip your toe in there yet, you can also hard-code the links per the instructions on Thom's page. Offer your readers the chance to track the relevant elements of the conversation, with Blogger Comment Feeds!

Hm; neat hack indeed. Maybe ought to do it as a blogger template hack too, as suggested in the article, though as another meta tag for browser feed autodetection.

Hi John and Greg,

I have added another new hack+tool called Archive Browser to the wiki.

Here's the wiki page.
http://www.editthis.info/bloggerhacks/Archive_Browser
and here's my blog post on this
http://hackosphere.blogspot.com/2006/07/archives-de-mystified.html

If you feel it is a good tool, please introduce it in your blog.

Thanks
Ramani

Does not work for me! I get this error with both, the userscript and the template code (which are same come to think of it!) -->

[Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80520012 (NS_ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND) [nsIShellService_MOZILLA_1_8_BRANCH.openApplicationWithURI]" nsresult: "0x80520012 (NS_ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND)" location: "JS frame :: file:///C:/PFIREFOX/PORTABLEFIREFOX/APP/FIREFOX/components/FeedConverter.js :: FRS_addToClientReader :: line 286" data: no]

Any help?

Forgot to mention, I have selected RSS File as my subscription type. The other options don't seem to be a problem though.
