RSS or Atom feed request
« on: May 17, 2006, 02:21:28 PM »

I would like to request an RSS or Atom feed.  I believe there is a simple setting you can change on simple machines to do it.

It was surprisingly difficult to find the info for this.  I believe you have version 1.0.7

Go to
Admin > Edit Features and Options > Enable XML/RSS news

Also set "Maximum post length" to 0 or perhaps an extremely large number so I can see the posts in the RSS feed.

More info here:

XML/RSS news was already enabled. I have set Maximum post length to a very large number. Let me know if it still doesn't work.

For others who want to use the RSS feed, use the following link

http://boards.sethroberts.net/index.php?action=.xml;limit=10;type=rss2

I just figured this out, so it may be necessary to increase the "10" in the url, given the number of posts on the boards.  (Actually, it's probably necessary.)

Also, if you want to just read a particular forum (for example, "Ask Seth"), add in ";board=3.0" so the above url would become

http://boards.sethroberts.net/index.php?action=.xml;limit=10;type=rss2;board=3.0

Other board numbers

News - 9.0
General - 2.0
Progress - 5 .0
Tips - 6.0
Oil - 7.0
Art - 8.0
Self Experimentation General - 4.0

I figured this out from the link I posted before:
