Hey, I just noticed for the first time... that my RSS reader in the Vista sidebar is displaying outdated feeds from the old site... And Internet Explorer doesn't detect any RSS from this one...

Are there any plans for this? I only use that reader when I don't have a hot-spot and need a DIYC fix. Not really all that important...

RSS Feeds have been added but there is a catch. I do not know much about RSS Feeds, only that I do not like them. So my research has indicated that the RSS Feed system in vBulletin only shows new threads, not new posts. The only way to currently get notified of each and every new post is by subscribing to the thread and enabling email notifications. This may be something that is modified in the new version of vBulletin when it is released. We are using 3.6 and 3.7 is currently in Beta testing. Below is the information you need to get the RSS Feeds should you want them.

Where can I find the RSS feed?

The administrator may have enabled RSS syndication, this allows you to view newly created threads in guest viewable forums without visiting the board.

The feeds are currently provided in two formats, RSS and RSS v2. The differences are as follows:

* RSS 0.91 - This feed is based on a standard written by netscape and provides a link and the title of the thread.
http://doityourselfchristmas.com/forums/external.php?type=rss
* RSS 2.0 - This feed contains title, author, date and the contents of the first post of the thread.
http://doityourselfchristmas.com/forums/external.php?type=rss2

To add this to MyYahoo click here.

The forums to which this applies can also be limited to specific guest viewable forums by adding another parameter to the URL containing the forumids as follows:
http://doityourselfchristmas.com/forums/external.php?type=rss2&forumids=123

If you would like the content to be generated for multiple forums you can separate the forumids by commas.
