Hi all... I've just been setting up my RSS feeds, and I was wondering how to go about setting up a RSS feed for individual / specific forums as I don't want to go through a feed of the entire Newtek forum. There are probably four or five areas that I'd like to subscribe to. Is there any way to do this? I'm using Google reader if that matters. Most of the other forums let me subscribe to a specific area but I can't seem to do this here.

Thanks! :thumbsup:

simply call this url :
http://www.newtek.com/forums/external.php?type=rss2&forumids=xxx

and replace xxx by the forum numeric id you're interested in

hope that helps :)

Forgot to mention that doesn't work for 'private' sections such as ... err ... well you know what :D

you're welcome ! Also, you can specify multiple fora by just adding commas between forum ids, without any spaces :boogiedow:
for instance, if you want feeds for LW9.3 discussions and 9.3 gallery call this url :

http://www.newtek.com/forums/external.php?forumids=207,209

Enjoy :)

I like that. Fora is the plural of Forum, I suppose, just like Pegasi is the plural of Pegasus?
