Question Can or Do Forum Members Have Individual RSS Feeds?

Hey everyone,

I've been searching for a way for forum members that post regularly to be able to automatically share their posts. The ideal way would be individual RSS feeds for my members (post & threads created by them only). Some write editorial style for many places and don't have the time or energy to click share buttons. Others just want to be able to inform their audience of new posts in various ways. Others just want to promote an easy way for people to follow them.

This would also help me to convert their audience over to members. Please if you know of a plugin that does this or if there is a way inside vBulletin that maybe i'm not aware of...

I'm running vBulletin 3.8.7 right now. Any assistance would be so appreciated. The answer maybe helpful to many others as well.

You'd have to modify external.php to add a query for userid's, so eventually instead of using &&forumids= you'd be able to use &&userids=

Ok thanks... That does help. Unfortunately, i'm not a coder. Does anyone know exactly what code I should add and to what lines?

It's a lot more complicated than just adding a few lines, they could supply a link to people like http://www.yoursite.com/forum/search...finduser&u=xxx where xxx would be their userid!

Sounds like an modification I'll need to fund. I'm planning to upgrade soon. Doesn't the newer versions of VB have individual feeds for the user blogs?

I will look into having someone write a plugin for user new post RSS feeds. Hopefully I can get it done cheaply.
