  • Can I provide my members with an RSS feed from my forum?

    VB 3.8.4. Does my forum create an RSS feed that I can provide to our members?

    "Can I use RSS to keep up with new posts?
    If the administrator has enabled RSS syndication, this lets you view newly created threads in guest-viewable forums without visiting the board.
    The feeds are currently provided in two formats, RSS and RSS v2.
    Most modern browsers have facilities for reading RSS feeds and will automatically detect the availability of feeds on bulletin board pages."

      Thanks for the reply beishe8.

      How can I (the Admin) "enable... RSS syndication"?

      Where are the feeds made available to members? In in other words how can my members get the RSS feeds?

        vBulletin Options
        vBulletin Options
        Show All Settings
        External Data Provider
        Enable RSS Syndication
        This setting allows you to enable/disable the RSS content syndication system. Yes

            In their browsers,provided it is not IE8. I don't know the other IE versions.
