Do you guys have a forum RSS feed?
I have a constant RSS Ticker for the forums/communities that I visit so that If their is a interesting topic on the RSS feed, I know to post.

Would love to see this added, These forums are very different compared the rest out their. Some good stuff

Welcome to the forums, PHP_Adam Smiling

I don't think there is a feed for the entire website, but if you view a specific forum, and scroll to the bottom of the page, you will find an RSS feed link there.

Hello pr0gr4mm3r,

Thanks for the welcome and quick reply, I have gone trough every forum and added the rss feeds to some website RSSMix. I have never used it before, but combines all your feeds into one:

http://www.rssmix.com/u/100203/rss.xml

I have it in my RSS Ticker, Working great so far.

I too have checked out your website PHP Starter, Seems you know your stuff. Are you a Certified PHP Coder? .. I started looking into this the other month, and wrote quick articles on each area of Zend PHP test http://zend.codephp.co.uk .. It was a Blog, but changed to wiki so people can correct me. he he

Most of my clients don't know what PHP is, so showing them a piece of paper saying I'm certified wouldn't help me much. Same goes with other computer-related certifications. Maybe it would be worth it if I was trying to impress some big company.

Not a bad idea mixing the feeds together...I only watch a few of them, so I have them listed in my feed reader individually.

Actually there is a site-wide feed

I wonder how to implement this sitewide.rss into Drupal forums. Is Syndication module the right tool?

When decibel.places last sent us an e-mail complaining about us not advertising the RSS feed, I dismissed it as people can just look in the address bar of their browsers to see the RSS feed. Am I the only one who does this?

Maybe I should listen to decibel.places more often. Smiling

Oh and while we're talking about the forum, yes I will add permalinks to the comments at some point.

Views has an RSS output. That's how we did our sitewide.rss. Views is so great, I hear version three will have the ability to make you a cup of tea, while giving you a foot massage, answering the phone and serving 200 Web page requests per second. Smiling

a Padded Cell our articles site!

Maybe Sticking out tongue - I just noticed the feed icon in the location bar in Opera and Ffox, now that you mention it.. (it's on the toolbar in IE7)

I like the way that looks.

I registered my feeds with feedburner and I use the feedburner module on my Drupal site, which also provides a way for viewers to subscribe to my feed with an email digest - pretty cool.

I think the best way to create a feed from forums is Views, as Jeeves suggested Wink

You just couldn't help yourself, could you, and had to find a reason to post that quote twice!

Hahaha, my first time to laugh loud while reading TWF. My kid thought I am playing a computer game.
