RSS feeds now set to include all the posts
« on: March 31, 2020, 11:21:18 am »
Hi,

on a request of an user I have now set the following setting for all the RSS feeds on OESF:

RSS Export Includes First Post of Topic -> NO

This should mean that, from now on, on RSS all the posts from each thread are sent, not only the first one of each thread (unless I have wrongly understood what does that option do).

I have opened a poll to understand if this change is welcome or not, I'd ask to everyone who's using the RSS feeds to vote here.

Thanks
Varti

Do you have an example? Does it mean that you can now pull whole thread as an rss xml?

I thought that this is what that option would do, though after a quick test under feedly I have seen that still only the first post is downloaded, but maybe this is something that must be configured under the RSS reader. I'll see if there's any related option in the client.

I had to revert back to the previous setting, as noted by an user (thanks TauPan) the feeds now only contained the titles of the threads and not the full posts.
We'll see if the new forum will have the full thread feature.
