I hinted the other day that I was preparing a birthday surprice for the Discussion Forums 5th Birthday. By present is now ready, and it’s something I’ve wished for myself for a long time…
While creating the forum stats, I found myself parsing a lot of the forum data, and thought that the data could easily be outputted as a RSS feed. A feed would make it possible to track new posts and replies in the forums, without being logged in to the forum all the time.
I’ve now used the feed myself for a couple of days, and I’m quite satisfied with it. I thought it might be useful for someone else, so here it is:
The Unofficial DreamHost Discussion Forum RSS Feed.
The feed is updated every 5 minuttes (if any changes has been made) and contains title, url, category and username for all forum posts within the last 48 hours. It’s hosted by FeedBurner in order to secure greater compatibility and to unburden my server (in case it gets popular).
Please let me know if it’s working for you, or if you have any suggestions for improvements of the feed.
