Getting the Most Out of SMF - XML, RSS and RSS2 (and Atom and RDF) feeds

I have just read every post from page 1 to page 23 of this topic and have decided that either I'm thick or this hasn't been answered yet  :-\

I want to configure my RSS feed to display the most recent posts, but only one per topic.  I suppose I could also describe what I want as the most recently updated topics.  Please is this possible and how do I do it?  sa=recent shows the most recent posts even if they are all from the same topic,  and sa=news shows the most recently started topics but with no regard to their update order.  Please advise, thanks  :)

I run SMF on a number of websites. I'm having a problem on almost all of them where RSS feeds do not show all posts. (They only show ones from certain boards, and not the private / hidden boards).

I'm aware that the private boards will not load in RSS publicly,

Is there a workaround for this?

I have a development project and we use both forums and irc. The forums are hidden if you're not logged in, but I have an irc bot that I would like to announce to the channel when a new forum post is made. This is easy via RSS, however, the RSS feed will not show anything as the bot is not "logged in".

Can anyone think of a way I can store a user / pass in the RSS feed URL, or even store a cookie so a bot on a remote shell can at least pull a list of all recent forum posts?

Thanks!

Hello,

I would like to set the forum up so that it posts the RSS feeds straight to twitter/facebook is this at all possible? If so, where do I look?

Anyone figured this one?

Arantor:
The RSS protocol doesn't really work that way and it will produce unreliable results if that is done.
