RSS feeds

Postby wilkster1 » Wed 10 May, 2006 05:24 pm

Hey, Jeff:

I notice that although I have Eric's blog set up in my newsreader as an RSS feed (Okay, it's Yahoo Mail beta that I'm using as a newsreader, which admittedly could be part of the problem), the most recent posting showing up in there is Saturday, January 7th. Of course, we all know there have been more recent postings than that.

Is there any reason that the postings previous to that show up, but subsequent postings do not? I'm not an expert on RSS, but I'd think it would be an all-or-nothing proposition.

I had never used the RSS reader in Yahoo mail but I just added Eric's blog and they all showed up just fine. Is the feed line right? Right-click it, go to properties and make sure that it's the same address as in my screenshot.

When we switched to the new design in January, we also switched Eric's blog to WordPress, which meant a change in the RSS feed address, too.

Thanks, Jason and Jeff. When I added the new url (for those who are to lazy to click on the link Jason so kindly posted, the new RSS feed url is www.ericdsnider.com/blog/feed).

Jeff,

I don't know enough about php and phpBB, but is there a way to enable RSS for this board?

Just curious if there was a way to get things as a feed.

There are currently 3 mods on the phpBB website to do it. I have never understood why RSS would be beneficial for a message board though. The 3 mods are here, here, and here.
