Default RSS Feeds

I just finished setting up public RSS feeds on RouterForums.com. Wherever you notice this icon: , simply click it and it'll display that forums RSS feed. If you use Firefox you can subscribe to your favorite forums and receive an instant update on all new posts and threads.

Enjoy!

If you are using FireFox, you should be able to just add it to your live bookmarks. If you are using MSIE, I'm not sure if they have an RSS feed reader, but you could also use Google reader: http://www.google.com/reader

IE 7 supports RSS feeds. I clicked the link and it opened. There is an option for subscribing under favorites.

Ah cool, there you have it people, it should work with both Firefox and IE providing you're running an updated version.

OK, since no one else will admit to not knowing what you are talking about, just what exactly is an "RSS Feed"?

Confused minds want to know.

RSS: An XML format for sharing content among different Web sites such as news items. How does it work? A Web site can allow other sites to publish some of its content by creating an RSS document and registers the document with an RSS publisher. A web publisher can post a link to the rss feed so users can read the distributed content on his/her site.

Pretty much you can download the content of RouterForums.com without even visiting RouterForums.com . More experienced web users might put good use to it.

Thanks for asking the question Brian, but even after reading the answer I'm no wiser so I'll stick to making sawdust.
