RSS Question

I was just wondering if anyone knew of any RSS Feed that we can set up on our Australian sports vbulletin board that will give us the whole news story - not just a line or two?

Any help would be greatfully appreciated - Oh and while I am here does anyone know how to set up the RSS Feeds so when it is posted the username it is set up to go under does not get an increase to their post count?

Have you tried using {feed:content:encoded} instead of {rss:description} in the Body Template?

As for the post count thing, you can either set the whole forum to not increase post count (many users have a forum just for rss feeds) or you'll have to write a plugin to not increase it for the one user. Or, I suppose you could write a cron job to 0 out the post count ever night.

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.

I looked at the recent articles on that other site (that one you link to is a few months old) and none of them are full length like you want. Usually you cannot get the full length article because the rss feed is not willing to send out the full length article.
