FlatPlan handles the distribution and display of your content. All we need from you is a structured data stream of website links. This is typically via an RSS/Atom feed.
We accept any valid RSS and Atom feed. We follow these parameters:
Update frequency: Each feed is fetched about every 10 minutes.
Readability: Up to 60 new articles per fetch.
Tip: To make sure that all content is retrieved, do not exceed fetch limits.
You can validate your feed, follow recommendations and fix any issues using a feed validation tool.
The <guid> tag in RSS, and <id> tag in Atom are required to identify unique articles. We suggest using the article URL as the <guid>/<id> tag, as it’s likely to change.
Important: We use the <pubDate> tag to determine whether the article was modified.
Top level standards
We need your feed to be valid, well-structured and contain everything we need. We require the following items:
<guid> - a unique identifier of the article
<title> - Title of the article (HTML encoding is not supported)
<link> - Canonical URL of article
<pubDate> - Date and time the article was published (must comply with RFC822). Must update when article is updated.
