Default Posts subscription

Can we subscibe new posts in the forum by e-mail? I think it is very useful to users who don't visit here everyday.

When viewing a forum index page, you should be able to click the "Forum Tools" dropdown menu and then "Subscribe to Forum". At that point you are able to choose daily or weekly digests by email.

Hope that helps, let me know if it's not working for you.

Best....ECO

Is there an RSS feed for new posts? I've seen one for new threads but not for new posts.

Not yet, requires some special add-ins which I haven't implemented yet. Will put on the to do list!

That WOULD be nice to have an RSS feed for new posts as well as new threads. I think a listing of new posts each day will help show how active this site is

Hi Michelle, this link can provide new posts since you last visited: http://seqanswers.com/forums/search.php?do=getnew

It's not an RSS feed, I'm working on it.

Default Any news on the "feed" story?

Hi ECO,
sure you're busy, also with the spam issue coming up ( for what reason anybody spams this forum I will never understand )...
But I wanted to check back on the RSS-question asked earlier. I didn't find the option yet - isn't it there or am I a bit blind?

Unfortunately, I'm not into that business, but a friend of mine mentioned something like Robomaker/Open Kapov for creating feeds - not sure whether this is applicable here though.

However, I would highly apreciate if that would work.

Hey Susanne.

Just did some checking, apparently this feature was added in a recent update to the software...see if this does it for you...it's a brand new feedburner feed so may take a couple minutes-hours to be ready...

http://feeds.feedburner.com/seqanswers-posts

Enjoy.

Thumbs up Works!

Attensa was chewing on it a moment and then... there it was: all new posts! Cool :-)
THANKS!

Nice. Please keep an eye on it and let me know if it's working the way you expect.

Default report

Attensa didn't get 'all' new posts (Oct. 14+15+16) at once, however, after a second round of spitting them out, I received 50 posts in the feed (suspicious number, hmmm? ).
It's probably not that many for every deay readers, however, reading them may be more efficient if the respective subforum would be mentioned somewhere. I'm not sure though whether this has to do with my reader.
Will try Googoe Reader, maybe IE as well & keep you poseted if you are interested.

Update: Google Reader also came up with 10 posts initially.

I changed the minimum default to 50 to make sure we capture them all...but if that's overwhelming I can turn it back down. Also, feedburner is lame and might be affecting it as well.

Thanks for the reporting.

Put it back on 15 by default.

So if you want to try a couple of other things...without feedburner getting in the way:

http://seqanswers.com/forums/externa...&lastpost=true is the same feed but includes only thread titles and which forums.

http://seqanswers.com/forums/externa...&lastpost=true doesn't have the forum titles but includes a snippet of the post text.

Looks like I'm going to have to write my own or hunt deeper for what we want.

For reference, the feedburner link I gave above currently points to : http://seqanswers.com/forums/external.php?lastpost=true

Thanks a lot!!
It seems like it's coming down to personal preferences finally - one person would like to see the forums, somebody else may prefer having the post (snippet? - I think the feed actually contained the complete posts), while I would probably prefer having both, but also the initial version is fine for me.
