    RSS Feeds?

    Are there RSS Feeds for the Forums?

    Yes, though aren't really documented (see this post from 2008: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=982992).

    Basically, the RSS feed for everything is http://ubuntuforums.org/external.php.

    The RSS feed for individual forums is in the format of http://ubuntuforums.org/external.php?forumids=xxx where xxx is the forum ID that you can get by hovering over the name (in the url of the sub-forum) on the main page. For example:
    - General Help (331) = http://ubuntuforums.org/external.php?forumids=331
    - Networking & Wireless (336) = http://ubuntuforums.org/external.php?forumids=336
    - Ubuntu +1 (416) = http://ubuntuforums.org/external.php?forumids=416

    There is also a add-on in Firefox 13.0 hat is pretty nice. It is a sidebar for the live bookmark feeds. Anyone looking might want to try that. I have installed it and it woorks pretty well.
