It would be nicer if it would also display the icon for sub-forums.

[edit]
For sub-forums, do the same edit on MessageIndex.template.php.

I've added the mod (1.1 RC2 running) but can't see the icons. I really like this idea, and would really like to get it to work. I switched back to the default theme too, still nothing there. Did I kill it by having a different theme running when I installed?

you need to install it manually.  apply the mod, then go to your FTP and edit:

'root/Themes/{YOUR_THEME}/BoardIndex.template.php'

Search For:
Code: [Select]
', $board['name'], '</a></b>
and immediately after inline add this to it:
Code: [Select]
&nbsp;<a href="' . $scripturl . '?action=.xml;board=' . $board['id'] . ';type=rss"><img src="' . $settings['images_url'] . '/rss.png" alt="rss" /></a>
You also need to unzip the mod package and upload 'rss.png' to 

'root/Themes/{YOUR_THEME}/images/'

Nice mod.

I had to remove the type=rss part top get it to work properly. Otherwise it was trying to download a php file.

If you want to enhance this simple mod some more, I would like to request a permission setting so that the admin can select which boards show the icon.

Yup all mods only install on the default theme. You can install it manually on other themes if they are similar.

what setting? I see the button on the default theme, but when I clicked it, it downloaded "index.php"... did I miss something?

If it isn't working properly, please open your "BoardIndex.template.php" file. Find the mod snippet. In tone of the lines you'll see a link code that looks something like this:

Code: [Select]
&nbsp;<a href="' . $scripturl . '?action=.xml;board=' . $board['id'] . ';type=rss"><img src="' . $settings['images_url'] . '/rss.png" alt="rss" /></a>
Remove the "type=rss" from the link code.

Just curious.. it works for child forums/sub-forums right?

Also, does it update a page's auto-feed detection if the page being viewed is a specific forum?
Say I clicked on forum B, the auto-feed discovery will update its link to the Feed Link of that forum.

If not, any plans on adding it?  That'll be great to add, will also help forums get indexed better by SEBots if they find feed links from the auto-feed discovery ;)

Thanks!!
