    Yes, you can point them to external.php?type=rss2

    I believe if you add &forumids=X (where x is the number of the specific forum) that it will only list the feed from that forum.

    Feeds are based on what customers can see.

      hummm, I'm using outlook 07 to recieve the RSS feed and when I tried http://www.clubhonda.com/forums/external.php?type=rss2 it wasn't happy, am I doing something wrong in the link? the error says the link may not be a valid RSS source.

        Did you enable the feeds here:

        Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> External Data Provider

            can I insert a banner ad right before the "view article" link in the RSS feed? I love the RSS setup but it's a catch 22 for my advertising.

              There is no function to do this. This requires modifying the code. We cannot officially support code modifications or forums running modified code, however you can try searching or asking for help with this over at www.vbulletin.org.

                Yes, you actually can. The template you use for the feed can include bbcode, so you can add [img]linktoimg[/img]
