Because I am feeling benevolent, and was bored at work. I've set up the board to do RSS feeds.

Just subscribe to http://aurora.pentarch.org/rss.php and get all of the latest news on your favorite RSS reader.

Sorry for the slight necro, but it is on topic.  ::)

The RSS feed for the whole board works, but what I want (or at least what I think I want) are feeds for sub-boards, for example Steve's Fiction.

There is a little icon by each sub-board, which you can copy into an RSS reader, but some of them don't display anything.
For example the RSS for 'C# Fiction / Steve's Fiction'*
Code: [Select]
http://aurora2.pentarch.org/index.php?action=.xml;board=279;type=rss doesn't show any posts, but the RSS for the sub board 'C# Fiction / Steve's Fiction / The Suns Never Set'
Code: [Select]
http://aurora2.pentarch.org/index.php?action=.xml;board=310;type=rss does show posts.

Likewise if you grab the feed for the sub-board 'C# Aurora / General Discussion'
Code: [Select]
http://aurora2.pentarch.org/index.php?action=.xml;board=277;type=rssit shows some posts but not any from the videos sub-board 'C# Aurora / General Discussion / Aurora Videos (C#)'
Code: [Select]
http://aurora2.pentarch.org/index.php?action=.xml;board=311;type=rssdespite the fact that the posts in the videos board are newer (at time of writing).

So the problem seems to be that the feed only picks up posts which are directly under it, rather than in child boards.
I don't know if you would consider this to be a problem with how the forums are working, but for my personal use case do you know of any way to manually change the feeds to include sub-boards?

Thanks

Migi

The RSS thing has been here for years. I added it and then didn't touch it again. I will look at it and see if there are any updates.
