RSS Feed for Lazarus forum?
« on: September 11, 2014, 03:13:44 am »
Is there an RSS feed for the Lazarus forum?

Being restricted to the  Recent posts and only the top 10 items of each  sub forum can be quite limiting.

Too much goes past without getting noticed.

I have noticed the RSS feed link below, but I am looking for something that shows the subforum the post belongs to in addition to the title and the time it was posted

There is.  If you're using chrome have a look in the address bar - there's an RSS logo.  Click on that, and you should be good to go.

I admit I stopped using the RSS feed when Google Reader died.  During that time it worked well though.

Sorry, I can't seem to find the URL for you...

Do you look for the RSS link at the very bottom of this page? But I'm afraid it's not possible to get an information on new threads only. All replies will be included in the feed.

Within the forum itself, you've also got the option of using the Show Unread option...  I use this quite a lot.   Umm, a ridiculous amount in fact :)  Nothing slips past that...

Unless you mark a thread as unread, you have a little chance to read it again without doing some search.

Well yes, but the issue wasn't bookmarking an issue for later review, but establishing a method of finding all unread articles.  The OP is attempting to use RSS for finding them as the limit of the 10 posts was too limited.

I agree it would be nice to bookmark pages.  Certainly you can select Notify to be told whenever there is new activity on a given subject, but that doesn't replace a bookmark...
