    I have searched around, but I cant find anything on a RSS feed for OSNN. I know other sites use it, but I cant find any info. Can someone point a poor lost soul in the right direction? :)


    EDIT:

    Feel free to delete this thread. I figured it out. To be honest I feel kinda dumb now..... :)

    please can I bump this thread - because I have an RSS OSNN feed along with others (from register and BBC) going into my desktop RainMeter applet window and although the other two are hot links I can click and the OSNN one used to be since the Vbulletin upgrade the OSNN feed has become unclickable....

    is this a side effect of the upgrade? Or do I need to do something? Can someone post back before I stop being lazy and look into it further?

    ^bump^ I did eventually look around for the RSS feednames on the front page, but did not find them (where are they hidden?)

    aha and so we have:-
    and my RSS is once more clickable.... BUT is not the one I want for the forum links... does that still exist?

    And what is this rumour that EP is working... on the front page? I want teh new front page - so let's hear more.... esp. if it comes with the RSS clickability I want - direct to forum selection... I know the feed exists, only problem I had was it was linkless....my klipfolio one on an old rig is to forum posts and is linkie though!

    aha - I think i found half the problem .... the klipfolion feed that I use was made esp. by you - it is below:-
    now the thing is Rainmeter takes a regular RSS feed (they work for register and BBC) and yes indeedy the regular OSNN news feeds also work - but I wasusing that forum external feed - and that does not...

    Makes sense now? I hope so - you should not need to go diving into that app - unless you want to of course!

    The forum feed hasn't been modified from its original version at all.

    OK - the type paramter I did not have...

    But even with that my feed does work but is not clickable - so I remain back at square one - where
    Code:
    http://www.osnn.net/modules.php?modname=backend&action=rss&id=6
    is clickable and the quoted one (feeding from forums) is not.

    Over to you again guys?

    Or do I speak to Rainie (the developer of the app that takes the feed)?

    well OK Khayman - I am going to take a lateral approach to this problem.

    Although I am keeping rainmeter and although I do NOT want anything so elaborate as Klipfolio... can you recommend to me the viewers you are using that are clickable? I'll pick one from them... And see how I go with it...

    ^bump^ any chance of someone or Khayman even telling me relevant apps that I may check out? Has Ffox a good feeder? I presume it must since IE7 seems to be adding one...

    IE7's built in RSS Reader works very well. I now use it daily.

    Also, I really enjoy using Live (http://www.live.com).
