RSS added to the board...

Post by jtaylor » Sat Dec 30, 2006 12:19 pm

If you wish to use RSS to keep an eye on the latest topics being posted/added to, I've added RSS to the forum. This works on a section-by-section basis, so you can subscribe to an individual section.
If you want an RSS feed for the entire publicly visible forum, simply remove use the link here:-

rss.php

See the BBC website for a great description of RSS and what you need to read it:- http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/help/rss/default.stm

The RSS links and images on the front page don't work. You've got some backslashes ('\') in there where you really need forward slashes ('/').

You may need to use a different browser or computer to see the problem. Some Windows browsers correct it for you automatically.

It saves you visiting the forum to be able to see a summary of each post which has been made against any section you're interested in. When you then combine it with other RSS feeds, then you have an agregated news service which tells you what's new for everything you're interested in.

Hopefully others see the point - otherwise I'll remove it from the menus and just use it myself!

I like the RSS feed, it saves searching the various threads for new posts.

I haven't used it yet but I guess RSS feeds are probably frowned on by work!!
