Currently, I have 4 RSS feed entries set up for SlickDeals to monitor deals posted to the website. The deal categories are "frontpage deals," "hot topics," "hot deals," and "up and coming." There's a decent amount of overlap between these feeds. The articles in each of these feeds all link to forum threads, and there's overlap between the categories for the same forum thread, but the links are slightly different - example:
Code: Select all
Both of those direct to the same forum thread so browsing through all of the threads means I'm seeing a decent amount of duplicates.
Is it possible to create a plugin that while viewing all deals in the "Deals" category I have set up for the 4 RSS feeds it would ignore near-duplicate entries in the feeds - i.e. to parse the feed link (ignoring UP vs HT) and not display articles that are duplicates?
Thanks for your attention!
