Default Subscribe to SEQanswers RSS Feeds

I've gotten a couple questions on how RSS feeds (for use in Google Reader, or the like) are implemented on this board and I hope that I can clear it up in this post.

There are many different types of feeds available depending on your interests and/or how much of the forum you want to subscribe to.

The whole enchilada

If you want to subscribe to every new POST, made by any user in any forum, use the following feed URL:
http://feeds.feedburner.com/seqanswers-posts

If you want to subscribe to just every new THREAD, made by any user, use the following as the feed URL: http://feeds.feedburner.com/seqanswers-all

The front page

To subscribe only to the front page news, which is typically selected as the most broadly relevant content, use the following feed URL: http://feeds.feedburner.com/seqanswers

Specific Forums

It is possible to get an RSS feed for a specific forum or set of forums. Until I implement a better system, it will take just a moment to compile each URL.

Every forum has a "forumid" which is found when you view the forum as part of the URL. For example the "General" Forum appears at the URL http://seqanswers.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=16 the forumid is 16. Pretty simple, eh?

To generate a feed for the General forum only, simply append that forumid to the following URL as so:

http://seqanswers.com/forums/external.php?type=RSS2&forumids=16

Using this method it is possible to generate RSS feeds for any specific forum you want.

If you wanted to generate a single feed which combines multiple forums, simply add that forum's id as well. For example, http://seqanswers.com/forums/external.php?type=RSS2&forumids=16,20 would feed both the General forum AND the Jobs forum simultaneously.

Hopefully that helps clear things up.

Is it possible to configure the RSS feed to display more than just the first sentence? Specifically:

Hi Senthil,

Definitely, sorry about that. Default was 200 characters, I just upped it to 1000. If that's not enough I can shut off the summary feature altogether.

Fixed on that and all other feeds that come via Feedburner/Google. Apologies. Full content is pushed to the RSS feed for each item.

Hi,

is it possible to create a filter to the rss feeds with certain words.

Like if I want to have only the new THREADS which are about PacBio or about DESeq or anything else.
Is that possible?

Thanks
