RSS feed

Post by Chris4 » Thu Jun 23, 2005 2:16 pm

I see you have put an RSS button next to FAQ. Good idea, but how do i get it to work? I use firefox and have used RSS on a few other websites and if a website has RSS enabled then an orange symbol appears in the bottom corner of the browser but i dont see that on here.

So, how do i get it to work?

Go to Manage Bookmarks to open Bookmarks Manager. Under File is New Livemark. The feed location is rss.php
Put a description in so you know what it is and now you have a folder at the top of your bookmarks which automatically updates when a post is made on this forum.

There are also extensions for firefox to enhance the RSS feature. Will have to try them sometime.

No need for a separate program. :P

it's like a live bookmark to show updates
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
