Some help with syndication please

Unread postby deefstes » Tue Jan 13, 2009 10:55 am

Hiya,

I've searched around in FAQ and on the forums but couldn't find a similar question. Could someone give me some help with setting up an RSS feed please? I've tried to add syndication for the Birds sub forums but get the message
Sorry, but syndication has been disabled for this forum or you do not have sufficent permissions.

Does this mean that the Birds forum in particular is not available for syndication or is there something wrong? Or am I just doing something wrong?

It's a permissions thing.... When I'm logged in as a normal user it gives me the same error, yet as moderator it works like a charm.

I'll alert Themba and see what's up.

I have noticed it too on other threads. Didn't say anything as I thought the same as deefstes.

Yes, I have noted this problem after the most recent upgrade of the forum but it still doesn't work. I get the same message as deefstes if I try to create an RSS-feed for e.g. Northern Parks. When I go to the forum itself (like Birds or Northern Parks) and then select "latest posts of this board" from the orange RSS-icon in the IE7-menu I get the following message:

Internet Explorer cannot display this feed
Internet Explorer does not support feeds with DTDs.

Quite a shame, since I would like to use the syndication!

Hi mods and Nedret! :wink:

The new RSS would be very useful... if it worked. I manage to get either all or one thread in the RSS, but the Syndication isn't working. This means I cannot just put Birds or Arid Parks in RSS, which would be very useful. I use the fully upgraded IE7.

Also, if you get the Syndication working, could you set the maximum number of posts (much) higher then 10? Then I don't have to check so often and will get more of my actual work done. :whistle:

"Internet Explorer does not support feeds with DTDs." is another error, which could be IE related.
Have you tried Firefox? (A waaaaay better browser?)

I am also getting this message "Sorry, but syndication has been disabled for this forum or you do not have sufficent permissions." I am using the latest Firefox. I would really like the Kruger NP feed! Any ideas? Should this be working? I have all my permissions set to "yes" in my preferences....
