Any time a new thread is started in the Successor States subforum, a new entry is put in the RSS feed for the ClassicBattletech.com.  Can this be corrected?

Any time ANY post is placed in ANY publicly visible forum it should end up on the default feed.

There are other feeds available though... gimme some time and I'll put together a list of the alternative ones.

You can actually restrict the feed by saying which board number you want at the end of the url.

http://www.classicbattletech.com/forums/index.php?type=rss;action=.xml;board=2.0

for example restricts the feed to the special announcements board.

You can pull up the news switcher thus:

or not, that one seems broken.

There are those who know how, those who understand why, and then there are the people making websites these days...

Thanks. Didn't pay attention enough to realize that the board number had changed.
