    Nice job guys, but I have just one problem with the Topics feed. I would rather have it list who made the last post and not who made the topic, I don't really care who made the topic. If its possible to do this, that would be great. If not, oh well.

    I agree, last poster as opposed to topic creator would make the feed just wonderful. [​IMG]

    I cant get the rss feed to work on firefox or trillian pro with the news plugin, anyone else having problems? Even if I go to the rss address I get the proper heading info but no new news posts....

    Is it possible the news is not getting updated to the .rss file propery?

    Thanks for your help. [​IMG]

    That's because it's been down since GBATemp went down with hosting troubles a week or so back (or more, I can't remember). Anyway, I request that this gets fixed please.

    would separate nds, homebrew, GBA and, wii feeds be possible?
    Dunno how they are set up or coded so oblivious to how much work that would entail.

    OK, I've edited the rss script a little [​IMG]
    Now you can select exactly what you want in the RSS feed.

    If you still use this address:
    http://gbatemp.net/rss.php
    you'll get exactly the same feed as before.

    but now, you can specify a parameter: "show".
    Show must be a 5-digits string, example:
    http://gbatemp.net/rss.php?show=00100

    Show = 00100 means:
    the 1st character (0): it disables the "gbatemp & scene news".
    the 2nd character (0): it disables the "GBA releases"
    the 3rd character (1): it ENABLES the "NDS releases"
    the 4th character (0): it disables the "Wii releases"
    the 5th character (0): it disables the "Homebrew news".

    So... you can really choose every possibility.

    If you only want the GBA+NDS+Wii releases:
    http://gbatemp.net/rss.php?show=01110

    If you only want the other news (non releases):
    http://gbatemp.net/rss.php?show=10001

    You can also want to view the releases in different feeds
    http://gbatemp.net/rss.php?show=01000 (GBA releases only)
    http://gbatemp.net/rss.php?show=00100 (NDS releases only)
    http://gbatemp.net/rss.php?show=00010 (Wii releases only)

    etc.

    glad I could help [​IMG]

    I might be adding rss feeds for individual topics, or individual forums...
    it's not really that hard to code.

    Definitely very awesome.

    However, if its not too much to ask, can you make it so that there is a way to show the whole article in the feed summary, instead of only who posted it and how many replies there are?

    I added the 10001 news rss in Google Reader, but I can only see the title of the posts, and not the content. Can this be fixed please?

    The content isn't supposed to be shown. If you want to read the posts you'll have to visit the forum [​IMG]

    I've just fixed the feeds for the new server.

    Please note that the RSS feed is BROKEN with the current Russian release. If you remove the NDS releases category it should work again...
