Hi

Didn't you used to be able to subscribe to forums via RSS?

Has this functionality been removed, or am I just blind?

Cheers

Fat

You can still subscribe via RSS. Though I don't feel there's much point, as the feed would be updating every time you checked it :p

Thanks for the quick answer.

my rss reader is always open when I'm at a PC so the easiest way for me to skim through the question's I'm interested in/can answer is to subscribe to an rss feed.

Where's the link/how do I subscribe?

Thanks bvanaerde

I more wanted to know how I would subscribe to any given forum, so I would have one feed for the Absolute Beginner Talk forum, one for this forum and so on.

thanks

I looked into doing the same thing, as far as I'm aware, you can only subscribe to the entire forum

Hmm, that's not a lot of use, waaaaay too much traffic.

So, next question, how does one go about making a suggestion for an improvement to the forum? ; )

I use rss a lot. To subscribe to ABT, use this link:
http://ubuntuforums.org/external.php?type=RSS2&forumids=326
To subscribe to a given forum, change the forumids accordingly (look at the url of said forum).
To subscribe to the whole thing, use:
http://ubuntuforums.org/external.php

You're welcome :)
Before the forum software upgrade, we used to have a dedicated page for rss, but I guess it was custom made and got lost.
