Hi Tony, you mentioned the possibility of activating an RSS feed for the forum a while back - is this still a possibility? It would be very useful!

My Best,

Karan

It slipped my mind.

I'll add it to my list of things to do, I'm sure there must be a plugin for it.

I've installed a RSS feed mod to the forum.

Can anyone confirm that it is working correctly?

Works for me, though the info is a bit sketchy (the feed includes post title and some metadata, but not the content).

Check your browser's address bar for the orange feed icon to subscribe.

This is sweet. Thank you so much!

Would it be possible to pass on content as well as post data/metadata?

I'll see what I can do (I'll need to manually edit the php code).

It's not going to be possible with the RSS mod I have installed (it works on the "Topics" table rather than the posts).

So for now it is all we have. But I will figure out how to change it so that it lists posts rather than topics.

Tony.

It's fine with me as is. At least I can quickly see whether anything is going on, without visiting the site.

I found another RSS mod for the forum. This one does provide the full posts.

If anyone has any comments I'd love to get them.
