Recommended Posts

MitchA    0

In the past few days we have been getting many requests for RSS feeds of the latest forum topics here on the MacCast forum. In response to these requests, we have introduced two RSS feeds for your feed reading pleasure.

 

The Show Feed rss.png

The Show Feed contains the 5 newest topics posted in the Announcements, Show Followup, and Feedback sections of the forum. This feed will appear in your browser (such as Safari) if you have a browser that has a built in RSS reader.

 

The Whole Enchilada Feed rss.png

The Whole Enchilada Feed contains the 10 newest topics posted throughout the MacCast forum. It includes topics from MOST sections of the forum.

 

If you have any questions/comments regarding the feeds, please let us know!

There have been some spam topics that have made their way to the forums, which is how you got those topics in your feed. I apologize for the inappropriate content, and I can tell you that I am working on a new system that will cut down on the spam.

Not exactly. What I would like is something that check the forum say every minute and then shows me the new posts. If there are no new posts then it's blank. Possible?

 

EDIT: I tried just viewing contents and then editing the html file for the linked widget and pointing it to the whole enchilada feed but that just broke it. Even just making that work would be better than what I have now because at least it would be branded.

The widget can pull forum posts, if you go into the options. :)

As Mitch says Forum posts can be displayed if you choose that option. The first time I tried to do that it did take a while to load, but it does work.

 

New posts appear with the date in yellow, so they're quite easy to spot.

 

As for update frequency, the widget doesn't say when it's updated, but I wouldn't recommend every minute, even if it were possible to change.

Every morning the first time I look at the widget I have to reset the options and I can't tell what topics are new. Part of the problem with the new topics thing might be that the widget updates so irregularly that I have always just checked the forum for new posts and read them long before I ever bother with the useless widget. All I am looking for is something I can use like the google mail notifier. When there is a new forum post I want to know about it within a few minutes. Is this just not technically feasible or have I just not found a solution for it yet?
