    Looks like the board truncated the URL. Try this:

    PHP Code:
    http://board.homeseer.com/external.php?type=rss2&forumids=620

    When I tell wizz (in FireFox) to use
    http://board.homeseer.com/forumdisplay.php?f=620

    or any other f=nnn, I get an "invalid URL" error.
    That same URL works in the browser's address though - I can go there.

    This URL does work with Wizz
    http://board.homeseer.com/external.php?type=rss2

    Real RSS Dummy.

    I expect not - it just depends on how you operate. With Homeseer, each RSS feed is displayed in a virtual device - very easy to scroll down and view all the headlines from all sites (and click on the link if interested). As I do not have the Firefox RSS plugin, I cannot comment on that.

    Yes easy.

    The main RSS feed is http://board.homeseer.com/external.php?type=rss2

    If you wish to link to a particular forum, use http://board.homeseer.com/external.p...2&forumids=XXX where XXX is the forum ID number.

    To find the ID number, just go to the forum index page (that lists all the forums). Then place your mouse over the forum you are interested in and take a note of the text that appears in the bottom left of the screen. For example, General discussion should show http://board.homeseer.com/forumdisplay.php?f=620

    The 620 is the forum ID number.

    If you want a RSS viewer for Homeseer, I have one on my site for download.

    RSS for dummies

    I started messing with the Wizz RSS add-on to Firefox. Stumbled around and figured out how to get a feed into it from another message board - it had an RSS icon on the home page.

    Can I get an RSS feed from the HomeSeer message board?
