RSS feed for forum

Post by TheEagleCD » 27 Feb 2007, 17:00

Hi,

not sure whether other people feel the same but I would find it very handy if the forums integrated an RSS feed.

There's a relatively simple extension for phpBB that does that, unfortunately I forgot its name.

Anyway, just my 2 euro-cents.

Best regards,
Christoph

Sounds like a good idea, I'd use it.

That was quick, thanks! :)

If you really feel like being fancy then you could also add the following line to your forums/templates/excito/overall_header.tpl file, just above the "</head>" tag if I'm not mistaken. That will directly add that small orange RSS icon to your browser's address bar.

Code: Select all

<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="Add me!" href="/forum/rss.php" />
Another option you have with that rss extension is to have a seperate feed which only includes new topics, that could for example be handy if you wanted to integrate the rss feed into the excito.com frontpage or something. Simply add the "?t=1" option to the rss URL (e.g. "forum/rss.php?t=1").

Thanks again,
Christoph
