Stack Overflow question feeds by default don't provide updates for comments. What's the solution to this?


You can use the experimental timeline feature. It's not linked anywhere yet, so you have to type the URL yourself:

http://stackoverflow.com/posts/[question number]/timeline

e.g. https://meta.stackexchange.com/posts/36738/timeline for this one. It does include comments. But remember that it's experimental; in particular, there's no corresponding RSS feed (yet?).

  • Can we use yahoo pipes to accomplish this task. I mean making a custom RSS Jan 23 '10 at 15:24
  • Isn't pipes just an aggregator? If so, you'd still need an original RSS feed that includes comments.

  • Just use Google Reader, you can subscribe to any page now, so subscribe to timeline.

  • but google reader doesnt prompt me the instant i get a comment Jan 26 '10 at 12:33
  • @Michael Haren: I don't think that's true. Do you have an example? I have never noticed a comment that was hidden in the timeline view.
