I was curious if there is a to display on your page the most recently updated pages without the use of RSS. The page I run isn't a blog or a forum, its an internal company site. About 30 odd people have access and its mostly used for the use of linking to documents and meeting minutes and the like. Everything I have found so far on this subject either is about blogging, forums, or setting up an RSS feed. I think RSS would be a little over the top based on how many people have access to the site, so I'm looking for an alternative.
Long story short, I need a way to link just the most recent updated pages w/o an RSS, and the site I use isn't a blog of forum.
You could run a periodic scheduled task to scan the site's folder tree and collect a list of n pages with the most recent time stamp. That list could then be used to create a little page with a list of links to those n pages, which could be included on pages as needed with some server side include technique.
