• RSS Feeds for Forums

    There are a few different ways to get RSS feeds from our forums. Some are simple, and others take a little bit of effort.

    In any single forum, you should see an RSS icon (different browsers display it differently). Clicking that will give you the feed for that single forum. Same with ALL forums, on the forum home page you will see the same RSS icon. That feed covers all forums.

    But what if you want just SOME of the forums in a single feed? There is a way to do that. Here is an example:


    That will provide a single feed for three forums:

    English Install/Boot/Login
    English Applications
    English Multimedia

    What you need to build your feed URL are the forum ID numbers for all the forums:

      Thanks Kim,

      I could considerably downsize my list of feeds by using combinations.

      I only hope that the list will not change to often

      It will only change if we add/remove forums.

      Thank you for this topic.

      However, I am confused and maybe you could clarify things for me. What am I supposed to do with the link that you point to as an example? I have tried opening it with chrome, imorting it into akregator and saving it to inspect with kate and still have no results. Maybe you could include a link to some simple instructions on how to build a rss feed and import it into a client? Maybe the script is broken?

      Anyway, your article is exactly what I want and need but I am not sure the basics are included to make it work. For example, do I need to "build a feed" to get the forums into akregator? If so how is it done, it is not clear to me from your example xml.
      Also , I get an error when opening the example feed with chrome (my default browser) which is
      This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.
      Thanks for your time,

      @anika200- This is my working link for English content of the forums in Liferea RSS reader. You can click below link and copy the address in address bar and add it to akregator. I have seen that Liferea doesn't read Non English forum content properly :-(
