RSS Newsreader Feed for new posts

Postby strom » Aug 05 2003 6:16 pm

(this post has been edited since the original post and the URL for the RSS feed has changed):

For fun, I've installed a rudimentary RSS feed for the various RSS newsreaders that are now available (see this link for an up to date list).

Once you've installed a newsreader, subscribe to this URL which generates the XML source that is parsed by the RSS newsreader:

http:// molecularbiology.forums.biotechniques.com/forums/rss.php

The default is set to the last 15 posts. If you want to change the number of posts to display, use the following syntax:

http:// molecularbiology.forums.biotechniques.com/forums/rss.php?c=20
(where the number can be any number--well, I've tried up to a 100 and it works for that).

The XML feed now sends the complete post.

Note: Viewing the URL above in a web browser only results in the unparsed XML.

Another RSS feed URL (less data)

Here's another URL to generate a newsfeed (click/copy the link):
RSS 2.0 feed

Note:
1. Paste this as one long string into your newsreader of choice, i.e., take out the line break I put in after "y&sr" so that the forum would wrap.
2. change n=10 to n=x where x is any number of last posts you want to include in the rss feed.[/quote]
