Configure an RSS Feed

If your manager enabled RSS feeds, then all discussion forums have an RSS button in the bottom-right corner of its pages. When you click this button, you configure Forum to "push" new forum entries to an RSS reader as they become available. This is an alternative notification method. Forum checks for new forum entries every fifteen minutes.

When you click the RSS button , all of the most up-to-date browsers (including Mozilla FireFox, and Internet Explorer Version 7.0) display a helpful, detailed page that offers choices of RSS readers. The remaining set up requires just a few clicks.

For Internet Explorer Version 6.x, Forum displays an XML page. In the Address textbox, located just below the browser's toolbars, copy the URL (it ends in .xml), and paste it into an RSS reader. (See the documentation for your RSS reader for more information.)
