Sorry if this is in the wrong place, didn't really think it belonged in 'Forum debug' but nothing else jumped out as being suitable.

I'm just wondering if there is any feasability to providing an RSS feed from the forum (or does one already exist that I haven't found?).

I have RSS feeds from Sky News and Sky Sports on the homepage of my work computer, it'd be nice to have similar for UKC. SCC appear to have one, so I'm guessing it's not something only megabucks sites can do.

Not used RSS in donkey's, but when I did I recall most readers will let you create your own feed from a url

There is an XML feed for the site, found here: https://forums.ukcougar.club/external.php?type=xml

The thing to remember when using RSS or any type of feed from forums, they will only list publicly viewable content, unless they are advanced system that give each user an authentication key to get private content, but this is a little risky.

Readers can't create feeds, but it is possible for them to crawl the content and arrange it, just like when google searches a site.

So this is the link to copy and paste into my RSS reader?

I'm afraid I have no idea what this means!
