    You say in your 1.1b3 release announcement:

    OK, so I don't see any options to add this under Options, or do a I see any such command in the forum_list template.

    So would you explain how to make this work in English please? :)

    Navigate to /your-installation/forums/-/index.rss

    If you view page source you'll find a line like this:
    <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS feed for Shadowed Soul" href="forums/-/index.rss" />
    RSS Readers should pick up that there is a feed there from that link rel.

    Or you can just click on the href to get it.

    OK, I cannot find a file called index.rss at the root level of the forum directory, nor in any other directory.

    Also, shouldn't this be something that would just display on your forum list page?

    I'm still seeing nothing.

    It doesn't exist as a file, in the same way individual forums don't exist as files.

    It doesn't display as a link anywhere, you have to navigate directly to the URL, or edit a template and create a link to it.

    You could include it in the footer like i'm doing with my feed add-on (which is IMO better:p )

    OK, so this link is in the source; I see it now. But shouldn't it display an RSS icon so members can click on it directly? Or must I add ragtek's add-on, which eliminates the need for your solution???

    I'll create tonight an extra add-on which links the xf feed in the footer if you want.

    Edit: Next xf beta will include this, so i'll not create an add-on for this

    The icon is available in the address of your browser.

    Sure, enough, but wouldn't it be nice to also have it as an icon on the forum's home page??

    And is there any way to set this up so the feed includes HTML if there's HTML in the messages?

    the new firefox versions doesn't show the icon anymore:(

    I've just added the link and icon to the footer template, took about 10 seconds.

    Just more reason to have this display physically on the forum's home page.
  14. Gene Steinberg

    Or I'll await ragtek's solution, since it includes part of the message text.

    erm that's already possible with the add-on?

    i just mean that i'll create an add-on which links the new xenforo feed

    We added the global RSS feed just yesterday and haven't had a chance to add an icon to the UI yet. I'll look to do it for Beta 4.

    Is it possible to exlude forums from the global rss feed? I would prefer to select which forums I would like to show in the global rss feed.

    That saves some trouble. While you're at it:

    1. Allow admins to specify how many characters of text to display. The title isn't enough.

    2. Include embedded BB code or HTML from the message. Make it fancy. :)

    the global feed fetches the same data as the "what's new page"

    So all forums marked to be included in what's new, will be included!

    Is there any way to add part of the threads text to the rss feed rather than just a link?
