Autodiscovery Hall of Shame

As part of the Jakarta Commons Feed Parser, I have created a WikiWiki page that details autodiscovery support/non-support, syndication formats, and the common locations of all syndication files across all of the major blogging services. The following services either don't support feeds, don't support autodiscovery, or support autodiscovery incorrectly:
  • DiaryLand
  • Expression Engine
  • Flickr
  • GreyMatter
  • iBlog
  • LiveJournal
  • Manila
  • PMachine
  • Radio Userland
  • Text America
  • Text Pattern
  • TypePad
  • Xanga
  • Yahoo Groups
The following services correctly support autodiscovery:
  • AOL Journal
  • Blogger
  • Blosxom
  • Movable Type
  • WordPress
The hope is that services which do not support autodiscovery or which support it incorrectly can be shamed into supporting it, while those that are supporting it can be celebrated and revered as gods. Autodiscovery is very easy for these services to support, so let's do it folks.
