Blogroll added to OracleAppsBlog using EE’s new Link List Module
I finally added a blogroll to the blog. I hadn’t added it before because I was going to add a separate links page but in the end came to the obvious conclusion that having a blogroll combined with del.icio.us links would be the best way to manage my links to blogs and traditional web sites.
Fortunately, at the time of compiling my blogroll a new ExpressionEngine link list module was developed that enables me to run my own blogroll as opposed to generating my blogroll using a third party service. You’ll find the blogroll in the left column towards the bottom of the main page. Immediately under the blogroll heading you will also find links to where I maintain my blogroll online with Bloglines, furl and del.icio.us. This means you can copy my blogroll quite easily depending on which service your are using. In particular, bloglines allows OracleAppsBlog readers to generate an OPML file of the sites public subscriptions. The other nice thing about bloglines is that you can create folders to categorise the different types of blogs you subscribe to. Herewith the list of folders I’ve created for this blog: -
- Business and Corporate
- Conferences and Events
- Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)
- Oracle Feeds
- Oracle Functional
- Oracle Technical
- Project Management
- Social Networking and Folksonomy
- Technology and Professional
The EE Link List module is still in beta so if you notice any problems please point them out. I will at a later stage add a separate listing of links comprised of all the links on this blog but can only do this once the EE Link List module has the ability to import my del.icio.us and furl link lists. Lastly, if you know of any good blogs that you think should be added to my blogroll then please add your comments to this post.
Examples of Other sites using the EE Link List module
- Distant, Early Morning - this site, in particular, is a really good example of how you can use all the features of the link list module.
- Oh ... Really?
