Hey Matthew, I’ve made an attempt at fetching the announcements feed from this site for display on the new fedoraproject.org/start page. However, I’m seeing a “CORS” error in the developer console and the feed doesn’t show up. (Please ignore the theme problems; it’s a work in progress. )
Is this something you can fix on the discussion.fedoraproject.org side? If not, there may be another possibility where we could restrict the news feed updates to only happen when the entire site is rebuilt on the Fedora infrastructure side.
@glb Are you pulling down the logo from the feed? We don’t have a graphic specifically for the announce list, but since that’s what these messages are, I think maybe it’d be better to have them labeled that way.
BTW, if you are working on a new thumbnail image for the announcements feed on the start page, it would be helpful if you could make it the same dimensions as the thumbnails that are coming from Fedora Magazine (472x200). What I have now is trying to add an appropriately sized grey background, but it is buggy and doesn’t work right when the code fails to fetch data from discourse. If the source images are the same size, then I can remove the conditionals and I think that will fix the problem.
