  • RSS/XML Output Questions

    It's fine and dandy that vB outputs RSS/XML but the default settings are pretty barren, all it shows is the Topic, Poster, and Time. Is there a setting I can change that will allow it to also include the body of the message? I'm looking to create a dynamic front page based off my RSS/XML feed but it's pretty useless with only the default info.

    I know one of the admins said they were putting up documents very soon but that was a month ago and nothing new has been posted in the documentation.

    Any assistance is appreciated.

    external.php?type=rss2 includes the actual content.

    RSS was designed to be headline syndication, not full content.

      Weird. I didn't notice that yesterday. Thanks Scott.

      Is there a way to edit the amount of body it shows?

      Acutally I know why I didn't notice.

      Why doesn't this work then?

      It shows nothing other then the top of the template. No forums.
