I know RSS feeds are enabled on my forum. I can't find the setting under features and Options.

I am running 1.1RC2

See this post above

it appears IE7 is unable to understand rss2 feeds.
I wonder if it's a IE7 bug or some missing tags cause it to freak out.

IE7 reads rss fine though.

I'm tired trying to make my forum pass Feed Validators.
My country (Thailand) use 2 languages encoding "windows-874" and "tis-620".
These 2 encoding is major problem for validating.
How should I do.

Hello i run Mambo & Smf 1.1 RC at www.tekdi.com . I use the joomla hacks bridge.

I need to get the XML RSS feeds generated to show SMF in wrapped mode. Right now i am seeing it unwrapped by the feeds picked up by firefox.

Is there an actual possibility by using RSS / XML feeds to show on another site the last 5 or 10 posts from a specific board which also contains 5 sub-boards  ???

I really would like to use that option if available. Some people on our forum are bloggers. We would like to display the posts from that specific section (1 board with posts and 5 sub-boards with posts too) on a new website  :D

Thanks in advance for any help!

Cheers,
Stuart

The action above displays the 20 most recent posts. Is there a way to display the 20 most recent topics?

Thanks.

How about for recent threads ? News does not work right and posts can show the last 10 in the same thread

/index.php?action=.xml;sa=recent;board=1.0;limit=10 is working fine but when I change the boardnumber it doesn't work anymore. All it says then:
Code: [Select]
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>
<smf:xml-feed xmlns:smf="http://www.simplemachines.org/" xmlns="http://www.simplemachines.org/xml/recent" xml:lang="nl" />

Anyone?  :-[

Just a word for those who might have had problems like me having the RSS feed show up on Joomla. When I used type=rss2 at the end, that solved the whole problem.

I've tried all of the different combinations of url's for this site...
http://insurancerage.com/
... and can't get any of them to work.  I use my.yahoo.  Any ideas?

I have a rather intricate question. First the situation:

I am trying to include feeds from specific forms onto my Frontpage blocks. According to what I have been able to find on this site, they DO work as intended: hxxp:xxone.ff-host.net/index.php?action=.xml;board=17;type=rss [nonactive] does give me the recent posts from that board. My site is set up into two basic categories (gaming site): World of Warcraft and City of Heroes. My board has forums for each with LOTS of subforums for each game.

What I am trying to do is get all of the recent posts for (example) the World of Warcraft forum AND all the subforums for it:
19 (main WoW board), 20, 42, 43, 44, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 46, 22, 23, 24, 25, 36

And then in a seperate feed to show the same type of data for CoH boards:
6 (main CoH board), 21, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 8, 18, 45, 9, 17, 16, 7

The site will be officially open as soon as I finish the top banner (to replace the google ad at the top) and get these feeds figured out, so any help would be appreciated! Am I going to need to write a script to gather the data from those specific boards and parse it into xml/rss or can SMF's built in functions do this for me? Thanks in advance!

For my.yahoo, it worked when I did this:

index.php?option=com_rss&feed=RSS2.0&no_html=1
