Suggestion
RSS Feed Possibilities

Is there any way of doing an RSS feed on our club website of RCGroups forum posts? In my wishlist I would like to be able to give a post summary of the latest X topics posted in our club forum at : http://www.rcgroups.com/valley-aero-modelers-543/

Is it possible to do? If so, can someone point me the right direction on how to do this? Or maybe this would be violating a policy I don't know about. Thanks.

Scott

I found out how to do a feed to a forum in the help file.
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/faq.p...ss_syndication

So used the following syntax to feed our forum:
Code:
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/external.php?type=rss2&forumids=543
But for some reason any post that is a sticky does not show up in the feed. Is there any way to include the sticky content and post the most recent X posts in the forum?

That's because the RSS feed is sorted by the thread creation date, not by the last post date.
Sorting by the last post AND including the last post content is very cumbersome because of the technical reasons in our version of the forum software. In the next version that limitation will be removed.
