RSS Feeds for the forum available

Post by Juan Artigas » Thu Feb 12, 2009 8:55 pm

Today I have added and tested a cool modification to the forum software that allows to subscribe to a RSS feed to the general forum or any of the particular forums in the Cichlid Room Companion forum. The MOD was found here:

http://www.mssti.com/phpbb3/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=177

You should see the RSS feed icon in your browser address bar that allows you to add the feeds to your feeds reader.

I hope you enjoy this new utility. Thanks to "Micro Softwares & Servicio Técnico Informático" for this fantastic add-on!

I tried to add the rss feed for the main forum itself just to see if it works.

This is what address the RSS button gave me. rss.php
When I tried to add in my yahoo as a rss feed, it told me to add a valid address and would not accept this one.

It wont accept it because the rss.php must be accessed with parameters, if you access directly it wont work. Try clicking again on the RSS icon in the browser address bar and add from there to your news reader, try with an individual forum better. I just did with Google reader (I had done with Firefox) and it worked nicely. If there is a bug I will report to the programmer.
