The FAQ for the forums says:

RSS Feeds for Forums
For forums which have an RSS Feed configured for them, you can enter the forum and select the feed link from the "Forum Options" dropdown.


I couldn't find rss feeds for any of the charmm forums. Any chance they could be added?

I created a test RSS feed for the "Setup, I/O, and Basic questions" forum. The URL for the feed is:

http://www.charmm.org/ubbthreads-7-5-3/cache/rss20.xml

There are a couple of different ways to set up the feed (to update on new posts or new topics). I think that traffic is low enough that updating on new posts is OK, but if anyone has a different idea I'm glad to hear it.

I'd appreciate it if someone could test the one feed that I made, and then I'll go ahead and make feeds for the other forums.

It does seem to work. That's so cool! If you make an RSS feed for the "parameter set discussion" forum, I'll surely subscribe to it. smile

I've set up RSS feeds for everything in the "user discussions and questions" section (including the parameter set forum). I'll create ones for the various CHARMM interfaces fora over the next day or two.

The feeds broke (the URL changed) with the 7.5.5 upgrade. The new feeds also seem not to have updated since July of last year, e.g.:
http://www.charmm.org/ubbthreads-7-5-5/cache/rss20.xml

The feed does not seem to work. I ought to subscribe to the setup discussion since I am on this stage. Is there any way to make it work now? Thanks!

If you are getting this error message--

Quote:
XML Parsing Error: XML or text declaration not at start of entity
Location: http://www.charmm.org/ubbthreads/cache/rss20.xml
Line Number 2, Column 1:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>
^

then you can make it work by changing ubbthreads to ubbthreads-7-5-7 in the URL.

Note that activity is not that great, and people aren't very good about posting to the correct forums. You can use Google to search the forums here.
