RSS and Podcasting

Can I use RSS to keep up with new posts?

If the administrator has enabled RSS syndication, this lets you view newly created threads in guest-viewable forums without visiting the board.

The feeds are currently provided in two formats, RSS and RSS v2.

  • RSS 0.91 - This feed is based on a standard written by netscape and provides a link and the title of the thread.
    http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/external.php?type=rss
  • RSS 2.0 - This feed contains title, author, date and the contents of the first post of the thread.
    http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/external.php?type=rss2

Most modern browsers have facilities for reading RSS feeds and will automatically detect the availability of feeds on bulletin board pages.

Where can I find the RSS feed?

Some popular RSS feeds:
Audio Torrents - http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/external.php?type=rss2&forumids=12
Video Torrents - http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/external.php?type=rss2&forumids=13
Audio & Video Torrents - http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/external.php?type=rss2&forumids=12,13
Technobabble - http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/external.php?type=rss2&forumids=4

The forums to which this applies can also be limited to specific guest viewable forums by adding another parameter to the URL containing the forumids as follows:
http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/external.php?type=rss2&forumids=123

If you would like the content to be generated for multiple forums you can separate the forumids by commas.

Other than the Audio and Video Torrent forums, the forum must be viewable as a non-logged in user in order to receive as an RSS feed. Also, the ONLY way to receive the torrent forums feeds is to specify them as written above. You will not receive them if you just subscribe to the site feed.

How do I listen to podcasts?

A podcast is a means of distributing audio files (such as .mp3s) over the internet. They can be played on a wide range of media players and computers. If the board administrator has enabled this function, then you may sometimes see links to podcasts within threads.

Podcasts contained within threads are only accessible using RSS feeds.
