Hi Trevor,

That's an interesting idea! We use RSS feeds all the time and having one for these forums would indeed be a time-saver for us too.

I don't think this forum software supports RSS directly, but maybe there are some utilities we can use to compile and publish the RSS page automatically.

Thanks for your input!

Hi Andrew

phpBB does support RSS feeds as I suggested it to Martin Wengenmayer the developer of the 3D modeling and rendering app that I use and he did not think it was easy to do but I provided a couple of links and he got it up in about 5 hours later...

can't remember the links and not sure if they are still on his site as he has just very recently change forum software... I will have a look...

cheers
Trevor

Trevor,

Thanks so much for the info and the links! With those mods it is always better to read all the documentation and have extra care to get things done properly.

OK, the RSS feed is up and running!
Take a look at http://www.ilexsoft.com/forum/rss.php.

I am going to post a sticky to the General forum and add a link on the website.
Thank you for your suggestion!

That is excellent Andrew... thanx heaps for that...

now I can have the last of my favourite sites checked every couple of minutes using RSS Menu (it drops out quite often if you hold the menu item open for too long but otherwise an excellent RSS checker)

cheers
Trevor
