Thumbs up New Feature That Will Come In Handy In This Area!!!

One of the new features of this Vb3 software that should come in very handy in this area, is the ability to SUBSCRIBE TO A FORUM.

Now in the last version, you could do this but it would only show in your User Control Panel (USER CP). In this version when you do, you can ask it to send you daily or weekly updates via e-mail of what has been posted!!!

You will find this option on the main thread list for this area under FORUM TOOLS. Drop down the box and select Subscribe To This Forum. You then will be asked what option you care to use to receive the updates!

Hope you like it, I know I will.

(Be sure you have tivocommunity.com in your approved list for any spam filter.)

That'll be useful for those of us (me) who forget to check this section. Thanks for the head's up.

No explicit complete list; just change the forum number on the link above (or add more separated by commas).

You can find forum numbers by looking at the URL to view threads in each forum.

Can you get RSS feeds for individual threads?

It does not appear to be so. (Its not something that particular feature supports).

Also as a side note: I'm not 100% sure on this, but I'm pretty sure that the RSS feed will only update (i.e. put new activity at the top of the list) upon the creation of a new thread, not on a subsequent post to that thread.

For this forum, knowing when a new thread is created is probably all that is needed. But I can see how that would cause a bit of an issue in other forums.

I see that the email notice sends notification of threads that have been updated. But can you change it so that the link takes you to the new post?

Thanks,
Mike

You are correct. And I now find this causing a problem. Not knowing if there are any additional posts to several of the SPA threads is requiring that I check this forum daily. And that negates most of the benefit of an RSS feed.

So the questions becomes, is there any way to change this? Or go back to the old feed?

The complete makeover of the forum's HTML means that significant changes would have to be made to my scraper for the old feeds to work again. Nothing insurmountable, but since I figured I was the only one who finds the built-in feeds insufficient, I haven't bothered to do anything.

Speaking as someone who scrapes the forums regularly (see my signature), the changes required are really simple.

Well, I'm not smart enough to do it (heck, I still write programs in COBOL--really!), but I vote someone do it. I think it may be more popular than you think.

And thanks for creating it in the first place.
