    On forum_list there are rss icons displayed for forums where allow_posting is set to false.

    Where's the bug in this?
    I find that intentional.

    People might still want to see/use the list in Google Reader (or whatever), even if they can't post in there.

    In understand your point. My case is a bit special as I have this forum structure

    From my understanding, rss feeds only display the forum you subscribe to without its subforums.

    Why not have the main forum as a category then?
    What is the point in having a forum with no posts?

    In vbulletin where I migrated from only a forum would show latest posts. I see now that in xenforo also a category displays latest posts. Nice :)

    Ah! I've never used vB so wasn't aware of that :)

    I have a few categories set up as you do, so was confused why you were using forums.
