On behalf of the crowstown team and everyone behind the scenes i thankyou for this. I also don't use such a thing however others do and you have put alot of time in it.. I will speak to travis about the rss feeds and other things... One thing i would change is the color of crowstown and istead of blue i would use the same green we have here. :)

Thanks again and keep up the good work


any update on those RSS feeds Simon?

how about a new torrent notification!!??


MAJOR UPDATE:

just added RSS Feeds to the toolbar! this means you will get an update when someone makes a new post or thread! Every 80 minutes the info will be updated automatically, and you can choose to refresh it manually too.

hypothetically, if you have the toolbar installed, it should update on its own, but if it does not, you can download it here: http://crowstown.ourtoolbar.com/

so i have a few toolbar related questions. I usually hate the whole "custom toolbar" experience, but i wanted to ask soem questions before i use this one:

01. new torrent / post notification. Can you set it up ONLY to advise of new torrents, so i don;t get a notification every time a new post is submitted? if the ONLY feature i want is the updates, is there something esle i can use to get the RSS feeds (i'm an RSS retard).

02. how customiseable (is that a word?) is it? eg. can i not have some of the links, the google search, radio etc?

03. is it easy to install and uninstall if I decide i don't want to keep using it?

1. not possible, at least not right now, as this type of feed doesnt "know" which one is a new post and which one is a new torrent.

2.it is (almost) entirely customisable: you can turn off every button or function you dont need or want, exept the search box (but you can make it really small).

screenshot leaving only the feed and searchbox:



3. its really easy to uninstall: if you are using firefox, it will install as an add-on, meaning you can uninstall it with two clicks; or you can also de-activate it (it will stay installed but wont be used by the program).

i hope ive been useful :D

RSS Feed: http://www.crows-town.com/external.php?type=RSS2

You can put this link in IE and it will automatically update the new posts.

If you want to use a web service, I use Google Reader for all of my RSS aggregation.

The toolbar isn't working for me.
When I click on the crowstown-logo, I am asked for a username and password to gain access to my computer. My own computer. It doesn't make sense. But I have noticed that the logo is connected to the old crowstown url (or something). :)
Any help? :)
Whatever happens...

Well, can it be fixed? I know I would visit this site way more if I could get access with just one click. Hehe. Well, it's the truth! :)
