I'm drawing a blank right now at the method (if any) to RSS topics or posts from these ocPortal forums.

Thanks for helping to clarify!

Hi,

I see you're on Chrome. Chrome does not come with RSS advertising like other browsers, but it has an official Google addon for it.


Become a fan of ocPortal on Facebook or add me as a friend. Add me on on Twitter.
Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Thanks for this info, Chris!

I was looking for little icons at the bottom of a post: RSS, Facebook, Twitter etc.
I'm sure, I've seen them before on these pages.

I've installed the Google addon, but I'm getting address feeds that are either not related to the posts I want to select, or receiving messages like these: 
ocPortal.com: Topics" has no items.
 
This feed contains no entries.

Same outcome with the Firefox RSS Subscriber.

It was broken for posts, you're right. Fixed. For this topic URL is:
http://ocportal.com/backend.php?mode=ocf_topicview&filter=17584&type=rss

Was working for forums, but you have to be in a forum to find the RSS URL (as opposed to a topic):
http://ocportal.com/backend.php?mode=ocf_forumview&filter=161&type=rss

Than you! :thumbs:

I can confirm that both, the Posts and Forums RSS Feeds are working perfectly for Chrome, however that is not the case for Firefox (could be due to their stubborn cache). I tried many times, even with addons.

Example for this post:

Creating this subscription: http://ocportal.com/backend.php?mode=ocf_topicview&filter=17584&keep_session=107...

Ending here: http://ocportal.com/backend.php?mode\x3docf_topicview\x26filter\x3d17584\x26keep_session\x3d1078365474\x26type\x3drss

I don't really care for Firefox as long as it works in Chrome, but some visitors might use Firefox.

Odd, is working for me on Firefox here, and can't think what could cause that.
