Hey, is it possible to get RSS feeds for the forums? I think there is a phpBB feature for that. I think it'll be very useful for all of us.

Thanks!

WiKi's RSS is using "Dublin Core" extension (http://purl.org/rss/1.0), so you need a RSS Reader with such support.

I'm using Opera 8.1 and it works well for such RSS and as a bonus it works well with ATOM feeds, unfortunately there is a bug in Opera when dealing with ATOM feeds. It doesn't show the actual posted dates. But I think it is fixed already in the latest opera...

I'm using rss from several phpBB based boards so it's possible, though I don't know how. But someone has to put a little time in it.

So pls pls pls...pls

Not sure :( it says 0/0. At the moment I'm using Skookum v2.0.0.0, which can keep me up-to-date with podcasts as well. It's still under development & it's free. Can't remember wether it worked with HappyJackRoad PoketRss, my trial has expired & I wasn't completely pleased with it so unmilling to pay for it.

If one of you know a great PocketRss reader I'm pleased to hear. In the meantime I'm going to pm Peter Poelman to ask for the implementation of rss feeds on the board, maybe it works.

zscreen scrape
in the mean time, someone could do a screen scrape every hour or so on the latest news on the home page.
how do xda dev people feel about that though.
it's not something that's looked on favourably by most people.

Well scrape could be better than nothing. But for the moment I'm going to wait for Peter's answer.
