RSS-feed with the latest topics would be nice. I sadly don't have time to visit any forum very frequently, but if some topic jumps from the feed, it's easy way to just drop by and make a reply.

Thanks,

Hi and welcome Janne404 ;)

Well, I´ll have to check this out...in the meantime I suggest to use the subscription buttons named "subsribe forum" (can be checked for each subforum) or/and "subscribe topic" (can be checked for every topic). They can be found on the upper left side bewlow subforum/topic headline...does that fit for now..??

EDIT: also check your setting in the user control panel about auto notifying and so on...

thanks for your input..!

cheers,
oliver

I agree some kind of RSS-feed would be nice... :D
If we truly want to build a community, however, spending more time (than just the "hit and run"-surfing RSS would enable) here, may obviously be helpful also... %-(

edit: okay, that sounds a bit harsh, and I'm fully aware surfing each and every site for new posts in certain threads can be a hassle. My remark wasn't directed at any individual in particular, but was a general remark directed at this "community" as a whole... ;)

And while I'm at it: before implementing a RSS-feed, people should start posting more, to give "us" something to actually "feed"! :-

I understand completely, but I also think the RSS-feeds can be a good boost to getting more visits and post, since it keeps the forum in mind even in the times when you're not looking for something particular.

I can only second that! RSS feeds are so time saving and I doubt they are a reason for keeping people from posting.

Short answer: no, this community probably won't get an RSS Feed...

Long answer: no, this community probably won't get an RSS Feed
due to technical difficulties, as the modifications needed tend to make
the board unstable as a whole.
;)

But: as always - it's owei's call... ;;)

Hi!

Well, modding this forum is not an easy task and always takes the risk of damage and loss of data. As everything is running fine so far, I´ll keep it this way.
I was considering to switch over to Vbulletin but this means again a huge investment of time.
There are some nice solutions also integrating a CMS, but as this site is not that highly frequented, this might be over the top.

cheers,
oliver
