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?

eh oh....

just looked at my source and it is
[Variables]
URL1=http://forum.osnn.net/external.php
URL2=http://www.theregister.co.uk/tonys/slashdot.rdf
URL3=http://news.bbc.co.uk/rss/newsonline_uk_edition/front_page/rss091.xml
I suspect I have chosen the wrong one - can you confirm?

aha and so we have:-
[Variables]
URL1=http://www.osnn.net/modules.php?modname=backend&action=rss&id=6
URL2=http://www.theregister.co.uk/tonys/slashdot.rdf
URL3=http://news.bbc.co.uk/rss/newsonline_uk_edition/front_page/rss091.xml
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!

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!

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...

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
