I was wondering if you guys ever investigated the idea of adding RSS syndication to your site.. so we can keep up w/ our posts in a more effective manner Wink

There's a great mod for phpBB -->

They give you an RSS feed, if you have an RSS reader.

There probably are not too many people that use this but it's sort of cool.

You're the man. I'm using liferea which is a fast, mature, and easy to use RSS/CDF/Atom/OCS/OPML news aggregator for linux.

I have RSS feeds into my gmail. Little news bits appear at the top when I check my mail, but it says it can't add the URL and I'm not skilled enough to figure out why. Any thoughts?

I can't add the Rants feed to my reader, but the general ones seem to work fine.

It's probably confusing but I don't think adding the Rants Forum will work because you have to logged in to see it.

Unfortunately I don't know. It worked when I added one to my local RSS reader.

Strange. But I suppose I visit this place enough that I don't need the RSS feed.

Is there any chance of implementing RSS in the classifieds? Would it work?

The Classifieds sections have RSS feeds too, although I don't broadcast it.

Email me if you want to set up a feed and I can give you the details. It's easier to just use the site though.
