  • RSS forum posts and not just new threads?

    Hello,

    I have my RSS feed reader set up for every single forum on the site. However, it only shows new threads and not new posts. It'd sure be nice to have RSS update me when new posts are made rather than having to come to the forum and click the "New Posts" link. Security-Forums.com is set up this way, and it's rather nice to get new posts to existing threads sent to my RSS reader instead of having to navigate to the site and search for new posts. (Of course, that's less impressions and potential clicks for their advertisers...) Is that possible on the Petri forums? Do many other people use RSS on the forums or am I in the minority?


    Thanks

    I don't think anyone can answer this except Daniel or another Admin.

      My RSS reader updates new posts as well as new threads. Check the configuration of your reader.
      1 1 was a racehorse.
      2 2 was 1 2.
      1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
      2 2 1 1 2

        Hmmm... I'm using Outlook 2007 for this. I looked at the possible settings but don't see much of use. What do you use as a feed reader? I used to use Google Reader a lot, but went a bit crazy with it. Seeing 150 new items a day overwhelmed me. I need to clean that out...

          You need to use the secret RSS feed

            Ah ha! That seems to have worked... I'm using the following URL:
            Code:
            http://forums.petri.com/rss2.php?type=RSS2&count=100
            I figure if there's more than 100 posts then I've probably been away for a few days and don't have much hope of catching up from the beginning anyway. Thanks Guy! Your crash course in PHP did the trick. For some levity, here's some PHP humor.

                Oddly enough, every day I receive RSS messages of old threads that haven't been updated in weeks or as much as a month. For instance, today I received the last post in this thread. For a while I was receiving the "Buy Petri a Laptop" thread just about every day. It's stopped now. I wonder what old threads will be passed to me tomorrow. Curioser and curioser...
