  • How do you setup an RSS feeds with vBulletin v3.x?

    I have just recently setup and RSS Feed for my website and would like to add vBulletin infor to it as well. Is there a way to set this up. I have seen an RSS Feed on other forum software and thought vBulletin is way better then those packages there has got to be a way. Any help would be great.

      Hey bannoy,

      Thanks for the help. I found the link below after I posted. I guess I did not search as well as I thought. Now I just feel stupid for posting this.

        I'm wanting to use the RSS feed on my forum, but I'm not seeing new posts that occur in the private sections of the forum.
        This makes sense, but I was wondering if there was a way to provide the same type of feeds on the private forums for those users.

          Not sure but I thought with most viewers and I am new to this mind you offer a username and password. Is this the same thing as the forum username and password?

            Wayne's examples in the link above is very clear. However, is there a way to provide a single RSS feed for multiple forums that I designate?

            For example, Wayne used the following URL create a feed for only forum number 55:
            http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/external.php?forumid=55

            However, how can one create a similar link that pulls a feed from multiple forums, such as only forums 55, 3, and 6, (just for an example.)?

            This info would really help me, thanks.
