    The RSS feed for new posts doesn't seem to be working.
    I found it quite convenient to read the titles of new posts on my Yahoo home page.
    It would be even nicer if a setting was enabled to read more than just the headings.
    Thanks.

    This could be a cache issue - I turned off the user cache for rss - that makes it fetch the new stuff each time (maybe).

    As to more than the title, that may require a template change of sorts.......

    My guess is also that RSS feeds update on a certain time basis - I tried a feed into igoogle, and it is a couple hours behind. I may be able to fix that too.....

    Interestingly enough, my stats show less than a handful of people subscribed to any feed here........

    Sorry for all the posts - but, yeah, the thread content is currently not included in the RSS feeds! That is likely to change in the near future, IMHO, though (been requested by quite a few people at the XF board).
