It looks like there's some support for RSS feeds on this forum. But
I'm not quite making sense of them. It appears as thought the feeds
require some type of authentication. And they might only show the
postings I haven't yet viewed via the forums. Is there a RSS feed for
all posts?

Thus spake "Tim Byrne":

Really? Where? I thought that RSS support for phpbb was done through a
plugin (like the mail bridge).

I found this inside the HTML source of the forums:

<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS"
href="http://www.vassalengine.org/forums/smartfeed.php?u=2&p=mcecp26intnNm8ulatLP1Z3Gx6GazpnVoZKYz26hm6Y=&feed_type=RSS2.0&limit=LF&sort_by=standard&lastvisit=1&max_word_size=All"
/>

I just don't know how it is supposed to work.

Hey, with a bit of hunting, i found this:

http://vassalengine.org/forums/smartfeed_url.php

You can use this interface to create a customized RSS feed.

One other note, you'll have to replace the actual beginning of the URL
for this to work. I'm guessing this can be fixed somewhere in some
configuration file?

Don't worry about the RSS feeds just yet. I installed Smartfeed ages ago, but as it turns out it wasn't smart enough to allow me to just get a quick and dirty working feed up and running! :)

I've got a decent RSS plugin running on my other forum so I'll port it over when I get the chance.
