Is there a way to have RSS feeds generated from the forums? I'd love to be able to just open my RSS viewer and see the most recent posts. That'd be so much easier than scouring each forum that I read for things I'm interested in...although have no idea what it would entail.

Thanks!!

Not that I've heard. Anybody else know?

Hey Jeff,
I did a quick search on the vbulletin forums and found a couple of interesting links that you might look at. It seems that RSS functionality is there and maybe just has to be activated.

This is just a search in the pre-sales forums for "RSS":
http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/search.php?searchid=499121

This is a link in the vBulletin FAQ for location of RSS feeds (I guess once they're enabled):
http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/faq.php?faq=vb_board_usage#faq_vb_rss_syndication

This link describes "activating RSS" in the admin control panel as well as what the subsequent RSS links are:
http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=146544&highlight=RSS

If all of this isn't worth the time, it's obviously no big deal...I'll keep coming back regularly. But as RSS feeds are becoming more and more popular, this might be a good thing to think about.

Thanks!! :)
