One of the most interesting feature of this new forum scheme is the possibility to use RSS.

For those of you who do not know what RSS is, a short anwser is:

Web feeds provide web content or summaries of web content together with links to the full versions of the content, and other metadata. RSS in particular, delivers this information as an XML file called an RSS feed, webfeed, RSS stream, or RSS channel. In addition to facilitating syndication, web feeds allow a website's frequent readers to track updates on the site using an aggregator.
Source Wikipedia.

How to use RSS in the new Openplanesim Forums?
It's very easy.

You have three diferent ways of using it:

  • Whole forum
  • Sub-forum
  • Single topic

The first option will give all of the new posts in the whole forums.

The second option will give you just a specific forum (Tech Talk, WW2 Help, WW1 Downloads, etc)

The third option will allow you to track a single topic.

To use it, in the most easaly way, use this button at the bottom of the page.

If you click it (or copy the hypperlink to your favorite rss agregator):
- When in the front page, you will be subscribing to the whole forum
- When in a sub-forum you will subscribe only that specific forum
- When viewing a topic, you will subscribe to all the replys that are placed in that specific forum.

Any question? Feel free to ask!

Do you Ubuntu?
