All of mine are public, the only thing that is restricted is the download of attachments.
The rss feed icons on my homepage give a blank page, yet the ones on their sub forums work?

I think the issue could be that the ones on my homepage aren't actually the top level forums, they are 2nd level ("Select from the groups below:" is the top level forum). Do you think this could be the source of the issue for some of us?

Please forgive my RSS Feed ignorance, but ...

I installed the mod. RSS icons are there. Click on one and I'm taken to a page that shows the content. Now, how do users subscribe so their getting notices in email or RSS reader or the Live Bookmark thing?

rcwild - If you're getting what appears to be a window full of code when you click on the icon, it's because you don't have an RSS feed reader installed to manage the subscription. You (and each of your forum users) would need that in order to successfully subscribe to the feeds after clicking on the icons.

What do you mean, "acting as links?" The implementation on your site appears correct.

Hi all,

A few issues

1.) This seems to be messing up my forum heirarchies:

For example

http://www.phonedevil.com/f136/

> "UK" should is a child forum of "Best Phone Deals", but they both show on this page?


2) If you click on the RSS icon on the forums on my homepage, the feeds are blank (they do not show any threads)?

http://www.phonedevil.com/

Please help!

Callum

Have you enabled Guest permissions to view forums, threads and posts? VB's implementation of RSS is based off Guest permissions. If your forums are closed to Guests, the RSS feed will not have any content to display.

Hi, i added the code as described and it still doesn't work on my vb 3.7.0. The icon doesn't show before threads. I got rss enabled and the other option under it (forgot it`s name) and still the damn gif refuses to appear. I`ve uploaded the gif in the images/misc directory also.
Did i mess something up ?

Hey

Okay I think i've figured out what it is!! If one of my homepage forums has a sub-forum, the RSS feed will not work. However if there is not a sub-forum, then the rss feed works!
....if this is correct then this hack is not very useful can anyone help?

p.s. I have now restricted guests from viewing threads. However it still did not work when they were permitted to view threads.

Callum
