RSS feed now available for WetCanvas!

RSS syndication is now available at WetCanvas! This allows you to view newly created threads in guest viewable forums without visiting the board.

The feeds are currently provided in two formats, RSS and RSS v2. The differences are as follows:

* RSS 0.91 - This feed is based on a standard written by netscape and provides a link and the title of the thread.
http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/external.php?type=rss
* RSS 2.0 - This feed contains title, author, date and the contents of the first post of the thread.
http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/external.php?type=rss2

The forums to which this applies can also be limited to specific guest viewable forums by adding another paramater to the URL containing the forumids as follows:
http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/exte...2&forumids=123

If you would like the content to be generated for multiple forums, you can separate the forumids by commas.

Re: RSS feed now available for WetCanvas!

There's a discussion on this topic - which highlights some of the problems with this approach - over in the Cafe Guerbois in this thread http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=337029

I think a bit more work needs to be done before the arrangement indicated above meets the standards expected by people who use feed readers and becomes easily "accessible" to those who don't as yet

Re: RSS feed now available for WetCanvas!

As forum subscriptions are not working at present, I tried the suggestion and have successfully linked all my public forums in Google Reader by substituting the forum number to the code shown above.

This does not work for private forums however.

Good to know, Yorky, given that subscriptions are not working properly.
