Well it's been a while since the last post. Is there any progress yet?

Are there still plans to create a rss-feed for the forum (like for example linuxquestions.com does)

It would be nice to at least get the news that hits the Gentoo home page as an RSS feed.

RSS feed of topics? RSS feed of sub-topics?

Any kind of RSS feed would be good.

I've got to throw in my vote. I don't time have time to participate in fgo as much as I want due to lack of time. RSS feeds would fix that.

Great to hear! In the meantime the feed from feed43 will suffice for my fix.

I have an RSS feed running on the top of my desktop with news, portage updates and dealnews.com and I just thought how cool it would be to have an RSS feed of unanswered and new posts from the forums. I was just a bit curious to see if anyone else thinks that would be helpful?

Yes, another vote for a RSS feed. I'd even be willing to spend some time hacking at phpBB internals.
Oh and please release the gentoo sources :)

Here's a quick Ruby script I came up with that will scrape the Posts from the last 24 hours search page and email it to somewhere. I've been using this because there's no RSS feed. I'm a programming noob so if anyone can improve/offer suggestions on the script please let me know.

Code:
#!/usr/bin/ruby

require 'net/http'

latest_posts = Net::HTTP.get URI.parse("http://forums.gentoo.org/search.php?search_id=last")

lines = latest_posts.split("\n")

links = Array.new

lines.each do |line|
  line =~ /<a/
  $' =~ /<\/a>/
  if $` != nil
    links.push($`)
  end
end

good_links = links.select { |link| link =~ /highlight-.html/ }

pre_url = "http://forums.gentoo.org/"

link_string = Array.new

good_links.each do |link|
  link =~ /href=\"/
  $' =~ /\?sid=/
  url = pre_url + $`
  link =~ /">/
  link_string.push("#{url}  #{$'}\n\n")
end

`echo "#{link_string.to_s}" | mutt -s "Gentoo Forum Activity" you@your_email.whatever`

PostPosted: Sun Aug 06, 2006 3:47 am    Post subject: Rss Feeds for forums and topics Reply with quote

I was poking around some other forums in the past day or two and I noticed that some of them allow for a direct RSS feed of a given topic. I don't know about the rest of you but anything I want to keep up on I take a RSS feed to Firefox or another program. It lets me see when someone has responded to a post or simply allows me to keep up on the latest news feeds.

Is it possible to add this feature to the Gentoo Forums?

Damon :D

Well if you mean a RSS feed of the entire forums it would be pretty crazy, but I'm going to assume you mean RSS feeds on a particular thread. I have no idea if the phpbb code allows for this, but it could be a decent addon for some users.

Personally I just do a username search on my SN to see what is happening on the threads I have responded to.

Yep, that's exactly what I meant. I never realised there was an egosearch url. I thought that was just what people called it.

Yeah, phpbb has some features that are easy to overlook. For example, it took me quite some time to figure out that the tiny little icon left to the "Posted: $date" field above each post can be used to link to the post directly, or that the "=> View newest post" and "=> View latest post" links on forums index pages have different semantics :)

Is there any talk of adding an RSS feed to the Gentoo Forums? I would be interested in this feature at some point.

The Admins don't want to use mods, so unless this feature gets added to phpBB2 it won't be added.

Oops, sorry. I checked for dupes briefly but not completely enough, I guess.

Would adding RSS strain the servers a non-trivial amount?

I don't care if you add it or not but back when I was young we had to check for new forum posts manually. Barefoot. In the snow. Up a Hill. Both ways.
