I'll bite.

Where is the RSS feed? All I see is JMI saying there isn't one . Maybe it's a forum skin thing (although that would be odd)?

*edit* Never mind, I found it at http://www.woodmann.net/forum/external.php?type=RSS

The RSS feed will only show threads that non-logged in guests can view.

I've had problems with the RSS feed from this board, it's about 6 months old or so with v3.5.x. I've got several other RSS feeds and they all work fine, but I'm not 100% sure 'our' feed is being updated properly or the messages are being fully shown.

I did a quick check at vbulletin.com today to see if there were any issues with RSS. Others can report their results to see if anything needs to be 'fixed'.

Well, the latest I can find is this: The vBulletin RSS feed is somewhat limited in that it only displays the text from the *initial* post in a thread, but not the text from any new reply. It *does* update the fact that a new reply to an old thread has been made, and can also list the name of the *new* poster, but again it only shows the first post in the thread.

The vBulletin developers are aware of this shortcoming, and acknowledged they were looking into it as recently as Jan, 2006. To quote: "True and I want to rectify that but it isn't a simple code change."

The two most useful RSS settings for this board would seem to be either:

http://woodmann.com/forum/external.php?lastpost=true&type=rss2

This will update the "From" field to indicate the name of the new poster, or

http://woodmann.com/forum/external.php?newpost=true&type=rss2

This will keep the *original* posters name in the "From" field.
