Hi

All my Slimdevices RSS feeds show that the last new posts are from the 26th June - is the RSS feed broken?

I guess nobody uses RSS then?

All my Slim RSS feeds are marked as broken since June 26th ....

Looks OK for me. I don't usually use RSS but I just pulled it up in FF and it looks fine. My guess is that you're seeing a side effect of this: http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?t=49384

Tx for the reply. I didn't know there had been a forum upgrade.

I tried loading a new RSS feed from this forum but that covers posts from all the forums rather than one feed per forum - do you see the same?

Could you post a sample URL?

OK.

To subscribe to an RSS feed for the General Discussion forum I go to the GD web page http://forums.slimdevices.com/forumdisplay.php?f=2 and then click on the RSS subscribe icon in the address bar (Firefox). This gives me the RSS feed http://forums.slimdevices.com/external.php?type=RSS. But viewing this in a RSS reader gives me posts from all the forums, not just GD.

The old RSS link for the GD forum was http://test.forums.slimdevices.com/external.php?type=rss2&forumids=2.
The old one for Audiophiles was http://test.forums.slimdevices.com/external.php?type=rss2&forumids=7 etc.

Just discovered that if I remove "test" from the URL then the RSS feed starts working again!
But the RSS link in each forum is still wrong though.
