    Developing a feed - What approach would you recommend?

    Hi All,

    I want to develop a feed. A feed just like linkedIn or facebook in terms of layout and basic functionality.

    It would be great to get some additional ideas on how to setup the technical approach.

    Currently, my best guess is to use a main content node and add the Feed entries as nested content within the main node. Next I would create an examine custom index, which gets populated by the nested contents of the feed node.

    Cons: there is no content search functionality in Umbraco BO to find nested content. When the feed gets larger, finding the nested content nodes would be tricky.

    Do you know any other, better technical approaches?

    You could implement a custom BO search which searches the content of the nodes as well as the title I would think. Not done it myself so can't offer any help but pretty sure that would be possible

    This may help

    You might want to consider making it out of separate nodes like a blog so you can search, filter, etc incase the feed gets super long.
