Hi

In an effort to improve the RSS feed of the forum we have made some changes to the RSS and encourage readers to update their feeds:

All RSS readers should now be pointing to http://robosavvy.com/forum/rss.php in order to receive all posts (new Threads and Replies to existing threads as well)

The old RSS link that was advertised - http://robosavvy.com/forum/rss.php?t=1 - is now deprecated and should NOT be used.

Regards
Pedro.

There are also a number of additional new features/options on the RSS feed that will let you customize the way you received your feeds.
The following options can be appended to the URL of the RSS feed:

?topicsOnly=1 - will only display the top Level threads (will not display replies to existing/previous threads). If this is not specified, both new Topics and Replies to existing topics are shown.
?t=[threadID] - will display the thread and the replies in the specified thread id. if not specified, all threads are shown.
?f=[forumID] - will subscribe a specific forum. If this is not specified posts in all forums are shown.
?c=[numberOfPosts] - will only return the latest [numberOfPosts]. Defaults to 30 and the maximum is 200.

Examples:
1) Subscribing to a Thread: http://robosavvy.com/forum/rss.php?t=1341
(this example subscribes to the HaViMo Vision Module thread).

2) The above parameters can be combined with each other (for example ?f=15&topicsOnly=1 will only display new topics for the Robobuilder forum).

Special thanks to BillB and tempusmaster for their helpful collaboration in this matter :)
