RSS feeds for Board Forums?

Post by chex »

Hi:

Are there any plans to implement RSS feeds for the entire forum (latest posts) or better, a per forum RSS feed for the site? I find RSS is a very handy way to keep up on transportation issues, and would be great if railroad.net had this feature.

Thanks, Stefan in Montreal

Yeah, RSS is awesome...it is on my list to set it up here. The issue is that phpBB doesn't include it, so I'll have to select and install the appropriate mod when I get a chance.

The good folks behind phpBB have included ATOM feed support in the current version of phpBB, so there are now a variety of feeds available.

Enjoy!
