    Will BYC forums have RSS feeds in the future? I tend to frequent specific forums within BYC and would find it easier to read than to bumping in and out to view updated conversations.

    Quote:I think this will work! From the link provided, here is what can be done for subscribing to subforum/topics


    Each subforum has a # at the end of the URL. Remember the number and substitute the N in the link below with that number.
    www.backyardchickens.com/forum/extern.php?action=new&type=RSS&fid=N

    So Behaviors & Egglaying is 18
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewforum.php?id=18

    ...is now this
    www.backyardchickens.com/forum/extern.php?action=new&type=RSS&fid=18

    It appears to work with Google Reader, and you can rename the feed once there instead of having a generic title.

    Well maybe I spoke too soon. It doesn't seem to want to update all that well with new posts... sigh.
