Useful link for a customized POIScenter RSS feed
« on: March 17, 2018, 08:47:11 PM »
Here is a trick I would like to share if you want an easy way to see the latest posts on the forum using a RSS feed ( = a live bookmark, that upgrade itself regularly with the latest posts).  Use the link below, and subscribe to it using your preferred apps ( note that I use Firefox as browser, and Firefox can handle RSS feed without having to add an apps) You can just copy and paste the link in the address bar, or simply click on it, and then subscribe, creating the bookmark wherever you want it :

http://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?action=.xml;type=rss;limit=15


You can use the RSS link at the bottom of the forum home page, but it shows last five posts by default.  Often, particularly on week end, there are more than 5 posts a day, so  the RSS feed is useless then if it shows only the last 5 posts - you cannot see those before the last 5, that you have missed.

You can adjust my link above by changing the limit, so, for example, if you want to see the last 20 posts, use :

http://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?action=.xml;type=rss;limit=20

To see more, just place a larger number after "limit=", and subscribe to the new feed you have created.

If you keep your browser history from last visit, you will automatically see what posts you haven't seen, because it shows in your RSS feed.


As an alternative, you can use the following link, but it does not show where to start from last time you came - you have to find it yourself what's the last message you have read:

http://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php/action=recent

I hope this will help you follow the forum activities easily  :)
