XF 1.3 How can I Block / Remove ALL RSS Feeds in Xenforo


Active member

I dont want to use RSS feed system because, someones fetching unautharized website owners with auto rss feeds / bots. However most of my members dont prefer and like the rss system so i can remove it.

I uncheck the feed settings on performance settings in options but still feeding rss. How can i disable http://xenforo.com/community/forums/-/index.rss global and all rss feeds on my website ? Firstly, i need disable RSS function, then i can remove icons from template .

Thank you

Probably just need to override renderview in XenForo_ViewRenderer_Rss to not return any content. Best done as a plugin since it will survive upgrades. Can manually edit the renderview to just return see if that does it for you but that won't last long.

Would be great to have an addon for this. An addon that not only removes the visible RSS icons but also completely disables the RSS function site-wide.
