RSS feed includes only new threads?

I've been switching lately to viewing more an more things using a feed reader (Google Reader, which I think is pretty good). However, I've noticed that TMS's forum feed only gives you new threads, when I would want to be able to see new posts (i.e., replies included).

Is there a different feed, or might this be changed? It's not very useful as-is.

Is this what you need?

http://www.topmudsites.com/forums/ex...SS2&lastpost=1

Notice the extra "lastpost" parameter in the URL.

Yup, that did the trick, thanks!

Could you change the parameter that puts the following into the top forum page:
<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="Top Mud Sites Forum RSS Feed" href="http://www.topmudsites.com/forums/external.php?type=RSS2" />
That's what Firefox uses to subscribe you when you click on the feed icon.

Me? Nope, I don't work here, I just did some research on the forum software they use.

Re: RSS feed includes only new threads?

Hmm, actually, that didn't do it....

Using the URL http://www.topmudsites.com/forums/ex...SS2&lastpost=1, the difference between lastpost=1 and lastpost=0 is whether it shows the last posting in a thread or the first. It does not publish one "item" per post.

Furthermore, as new posts are made, it uses the same <guid> for every item, thus preventing a feed reader, like Google Reader, to notice that a posting is new (at least that's probably why I'm not seeing replies once I see the thread show up once).
