Forum Upgrade - New Features - RSS Feed Syndication

Postby Babbman » Tue, Dec 18 2007, 07:16 AM

RSS Feeds are pretty popular these days and the new forum software publishes it's own feed.

The link to the feed is:

http://www.ikeclub.org/Forums/rss.php

Simply use this link in your RSS reader and you should receive any new posts to the board without logging in. Of course, to get the full experience of IKE, we always recommend visiting the forums at least once an hour... :up:

There are literally TONS of readers out there so it's difficult to recommend anything specific but... if you are a Firefox user, there is an add on called SRR (Simple RSS Reader) that is simple and easy to use.

I use Firefox but I don't use a reader.

This still gives you a very quick way to check on the forum.

I have bookmark that automatically shows me all the latest postings. I don't see the text of the postings, just the topic headings. All I do is click on the bookmark and a drop-down list shows up instantly with any posts since my last visit. It's very cool! I then go to the forum to read and respond.

If that sounds good to you, here's what to do:

First, if you don't have Firefox, use that instead of Internet Explorer. It's what you should be doing anyway.
Go here and install it: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/

After you've installed it, open up Firefox and come back here.
Click on Babb's link:
http://www.ikeclub.org/Forums/rss.php

You'll get the choice to subscribe to it as a "live bookmark". Click "Subscribe Now" and that's it! If you have the bookmark in your "toolbar folder" it will be an icon right there on top of the browser with easy access.
