I've has questions about how the RSS feed works.  Here are some answers...

All of the XML content is accessed via the ".xml" action... To get RSS or RSS2 out of that (not viewable in most browsers), add ";type=rss" or ";type=rss2" to that URL.

The default feed is the 5 most recent posts:
http://flashlight-forums.com/index.php?action=.xml;type=rss2

There are several "sub-actions" available to this action, specifying exactly what to display:

Recent Posts (displays the most recent posts that you can see)
"Sub-action": recent
Default: Shows 5 most recent posts
Available options:
limit=x - display the "x" most recent posts (if number is less than 5, it will display 5. If number is larger than 255, it will display 255).
board=y - display only the recent posts from board "y"
Example: http://flashlight-forums.com/index.php?action=.xml;type=rss2;sa=recent;board=2.0;limit=10

News (displays the first post from the most recent topics that you can see)
"Sub-action": news
Available options:
limit=x - display only "x" items
board=y - display only news topics from board "y"
Example: http://flashlight-forums.com/index.php?action=.xml;type=rss2;sa=news;board=2.0;limit=10

Members (displays most recent members)
"Sub-action": members
Available options:
limit=x - display only the "x" most recent members
Example: http://flashlight-forums.com/index.php?action=.xml;type=rss2;sa=members;limit=10

Profile (displays the "profile summary" data in a nice XML feed for the specified user)
"Sub-action": profile
Required option:
u=x - display the profile info for user whose ID is "x"
Example: http://flashlight-forums.com/index.php?action=.xml;type=rss2;sa=profile;u=2


Hope that helps.

Best regards,
Randy

Need a great RSS reader?  Try this

http://netvibes.com

It does RSS and much more.  Combined with del.iciou.us, writely, and flicr, this is my home page on all my PCs now.
