    How do you think about a rss feed for gbatemp? It may not be the best function for a site that does not update frequently like this one, but the idea is still very cool and gives the site a professional feel.

    What RSS is XML.com or

    See this thread.

    I don't know why Costello never made the news piece, I'll ask him tomorrow. Maybe their was a bug in the RSS feed.

    This sound like an extremely good idea, it also means GBATemp will be kept up-to-date constantly.

    Excellent work on the RSS feed. This is a great thing to add to the site. So far it's working just fine for me. Not to mention, it'll keep a bit of traffic down, if people can just check the feed if they are only looking for new releases.

    As for a reader, I use Opera as my browser anyway, so I just use Opera's built in reader. Otherwise, just do a search for "rss reader aggregator". There's plenty of good standalone ones.

    Then write
    Code:

    what are the advantages of going to the RSS feed instead of the main portal? Oh, and can you view this feed on Mobile Phones?

    you do not "go to the RSS feed", it GOES to you [​IMG]
    it checks automatically the news every X minutes (X being whatever you want) and notifies you when there's something new!
