News Feeds

A new forum called "News Feeds" has been added to the forum. The user "NewsBot" monitors a configured list of feeds (RSS, ATOM, RDF) and automatically posts new feed messages to the "News Feeds" forum. Everybody has read-only access to the forum, this means you cannot reply the automatically posted messages. The forum is intended for reading and refering users to the original source. Posts in the "News Feeds" forum are automatically pruned after 31 days.

You want your feed added to the forum? Just reply to this thread with your feed url and one of the following options:

  1. Full (title, author, link, full content)
  2. Summary (title, author, link, summary content)
  3. Short (title, author, link, no content)

The feed content and specific settings differ per CMS system. Feed owners might need to do some setup. It all depends of which option you choose. Don't worry too much about these technical details. Your option choice is sufficient in most cases. When possible try to follow the setup instructions below before posting your choice.

Below a knownledge base of setup instructions currently known to us. If your CMS system is not listed it does not mean it cannot be added.

The "Rogue Heresy" blog had a post that caused an error in parsing process. I don't know exactly what content caused the error. Maybe the little smily icon in his last post. I had to disable the blog in order to fix the problem. Your last post has now been processed.
