I've added some new parameters to make it easier for people to stick a useful widget-like feed on their website using an rss system.

with the sa=recent action listing RECENT POSTS, you can now add parameters:
u=4,5,6 (this says show all recent posts by users # 4,5, or 6)
tu=10,11 (this says show all recent posts made on topics started by users #10 or 11)
tl=1000,2000 (this says show all recent posts made on topics #1000 or 2000)

with the sa=news action which lists recent TOPICS, you can now add parameters:
u=4,5,6 (this says show all recent topics by users # 4,5, or 6)

Rss feeds now also obey same nofollow rules as posts.

Enjoy!

I have a dynamic blogroll that relies on RSS...

Every time a new thread is started on DC, it rises to top of the list, with a link to the thread, as a well as one to the main page of the forum. (I also have the DC blog added, too)

5 most recently updated blogs & forums are shown, along with a link to expand & show all. A very nice widget that Google recently added for use only on Blogspot blogs.

(I wouldn't click to show all on my blog, though...unless you have a lot of time to kill)

u=4,5,6 (this says show all recent posts by users # 4,5, or 6)

This is handy for anyone that uses FriendFeed, allowing you to add your posts here on DC to your lifestream.

Could you change the autodiscovery rss feed button to subscribe to what you're looking at mouser?
for example for this topic:
http://www.donationc...=10;tl=496;type=rss2 to subscribe to just this topic.

If you're looking at the category listing on the forum homepage you can subscribe to the whole forum. Also on the boards listing change the link to subscribe to the board. that would make the feedicon after the url in firefox more useful.

At the moment when I want to subscribe to a topic I have to hack together an URL if I understand it correctly, so that's not ideal.

Subscribing to the blog doesn't work for me at all. I'm using feeddemon. The URL I'm using is
Code: [Select]
http://www.donationcoder.com/forum/index.php?action=.xml%3Blimit=10%3Bsa=blogs%3Btype=rss2I see a list of posts from the day I signed up, and no new ones since. My most recent post is from March 2 - Comic Strip Generator - which now that I look I don't think it appeared on the blog. I subscribed by using the link on http://donationcoder.com/blog/.

Help?

I was having the same problem but it seems to be better since I turned off "Synchronize this folder with NewsGator" under edit/folder properties.
I'll know better after I see if this post is picked up and how fast.  Just installed FeedDemon 2.7 earlier today.  I'm new to using RSS Feed readers so I need to make sure it isn't mostly operator error 1st.  :-[

Glad it helped!
I first tried making the change in the main subscriptions folder but it didn't seem to help much.  So I looked under properties of each of the invididual sub-folders they were still checked. Unchecked a couple of those and increased the update frequency and those folders update on their own instead of waiting for the feed to come from NewsGator.
I'm sure the sync tool is a nice feature for people who want to be able to check their feeds from different computers.  But my notebook is close enough where I am at home or on the road when I want to check, so it isn't a feature I really need.
To tell whether the folder is synched, look at the lower left corner of the sub-folder.  If there is what looks like to be a small orange circle, it is still synched.  A normal looking folder, it isn't.

You should add a help icon near the RSS feed icon at the bottom of this forum.  I think many people will not realize they can tweak the feed.  I forgot how to change the limit and remember that DC had done something in the past for it.

Some of the posts get truncated in the feed. Is there some maximum length set somewhere?
