    Default Is there a single RSS feed that can provide me data for the entire forums?

    Is there a single RSS feed that can provide me data for the entire forums?
    I am finding it difficult to late this RSS feed it exists.
    I see that some of the forums do have separate list.
    Also is there a webpage which lists all RSS feeds for openSUSE forums in general ?

    I guess you only see the new ones. Are they allready more then 1000 since when you started this?

    BTW, are you sure you want all? The Chinese, the Dutch, ......?

    So you rethought and are no more asking for "entire forums".

    I am using Akregator inside Kontact on KDE. It only shows me new threads, not old ones from long ago. When I read RSS - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia , I find e.g.
    The RSS reader checks the user's subscribed feeds regularly for new work,
    Thus not for old changes that were years (or even seconds) old. Seems all logical to me.

    So an RSS feed of the English part of the forums should tell you about new threads there. That is the defintion of RSS. And there are not a thousand of them, not even in one day.

    I found english but gave the entire forum list as an example

    I use Liferea under GNOME

    I thought VB4 should support something similar to blogger platform where the number of entries can be controlled in the feed.
    Can i get such a URL list for these forums ?
    Example:-
    This will give me one results Black and Blue: The Unofficial Lincoln Stars Blog
    This will give me Ninety nine results Black and Blue: The Unofficial Lincoln Stars Blog
    There is a default feed too Black and Blue: The Unofficial Lincoln Stars Blog

    I'd be happy with anything that allowed me to see an RSS of all the posts in the English sub-forums, without having to subscribe to each individual one. The RSS for the 'English' forum is kind of pointless, as it is a container for more forums - there are no individual posts in the English forum itself, hence no RSS updates.

    There are different levels of RSS available - some places allow you to see only new threads/topics... others allow you to see every new post. See the page for any given mailing list over @ Gmane.org for an example.

    Yes, of course, the English (and all the other language forums) are empty and using RSS on them is pointless.
    I normaly would only RSS subscibe to those (sub)forums where I could probaly be of any help. But being a mod I subscribed to all the English (sub)forums (18 if I didn't forgot one). Allways in the hope that there is not to much change there

    @vazhavandan . I doubt if what you want (if I undserstand you correctly) is of much use. Using search functions (either the forums search itself, or a Google search with the forums URL as search delimiter) will help when you want a subject. And everything older then about a year is not t be trusted anymore because the supported version of openSUSE will be at least two version higher.
