Im wanting to know when I get comments on my blog, and as there isnt any kind of email notification when you get comments I was wanting to have a RSS feed for all my blog comments.
How do i hack my code to do this?

we have been discussing the idea of email notification - theres a ticket on open about it assigned to me. I think and so do a few others that email is to invasive and so an RSS is the way to go. I have written up a little method that seems to work for me
Check it out at http://pastie.caboo.se/187947. Pretty simple function, just select the comments as dataobjects and output to an RSS feed!
I have that in the Page_Controller class and to view / subscribe its available at yoursite.com/home/commentrss.
If you have any improvements on it that would be great to hear!
EDIT: this is actually built-into silverstripes page comment class. I should have looked more throughly - Visit yoursite.com/PageComment/rss to see the latest comments. No need for custom code

That would be great if this feature was built in!
Could you please be a bit more specific on the instructions? Where do i paste the code from pastie etc?

just playing round but it might be nice for users to be able to subscribe as well I guess. If you want to add a little RSS icon in the browser window add this code to your Page_Controller -> init() function
RSSFeed::linkToFeed($this->Link() . "commentrss", "Latest Comments");
That will create a link in the <head> section to the commentrss feed and a nice little icon in the browser!
