I have better things to do than check the forum for new postings
As I said: I have better things to do than check the forum for new postings. Unfortunately I don't seem to be getting any of them done. Any chance I can get email updates or a RSS feed?
Bob, glad to hear we're keeping you occupied!
Here's the RSS address for ALL posts:
For RSS feeds for individual categories, see this page:
for correct information.
Evan - when I click the ALL posts link above, it asks me to gives me the option to "Subscribe Now" - when I do that, it adds each of the discussion threads to my favorites, which is no different than checking the forum for new postings. What's the trick?
Hi Kate - Do you use an RSS feed reader? The address ending in ".rss" above is meant to be used in a feed reader, such as
. It's useful mainly if you subscribe to lots of other feeds (blogs, etc.) and don't want to browse to each & every website to see if there are new posts.
Instructions vary depending on which one you use. For Google Reader, you would copy the RSS address, click "Subscribe" in Google Reader, and paste it into the pop-up box. Then you'll be subscribed to new Forum posts.
I'm not sure about the option for an email subscription, but I'll look into it!
OK, I added an email subscription service, but I haven't tested it so I'm not sure how it works.
If you want to subscribe to certain categories (or ALL categories) via email, go to your
page and click "Email Subscriptions." Check the relevant boxes, and save.
Let me know if you have problems.
I signed up for the e-mail subscriptions; hope it works. I find I'm coming here when I have some spare time, hoping to see new posts. Take that, Facebook.
Disregard my first comment above, in response to Bob. I get what Kate is saying now: those RSS feeds are useless because they only update when new discussions are created - not for subsequent comments.
ANYWAY, I think I've fixed the problem. The following RSS feeds should update for ALL comments, not just new discussions:
Individual Categories only:
- General Discussion:
- Beginner Questions:
- Cheering Section:
- Event Announcements:
Thanks for your patience!
