RSS feed for the updates

Unread post by ziggurat »

Hi,

I just wonder if an admin of the forum can make a change to the RSS feed for the updates. If the RSS feed also could contain the message of in the update that would be great.

Right now the discord #mister-news channel has a bot that posts the RSS feed, and there is no link, so mods there go in and copy the contents of the update and delete the post of the RSS bot and make a new post with the contents of the update.

So I asked a mod if they could just change the RSS bot to include the message in the first place, and he said that the RSS feed doesn't contain the messages, just the link.

Best regards!

The RSS feed DOES include the body of the posts, it's an issue with your bot. See the content tags in the feed itself: feed/topic/147

Could you please remove the Statistics from the RSS feed's description?

Posts are formatted with that at the end of the description field, which is unnecessary since the author and date are already part of the feed.

This is how posts are currently pulled in:
MegaCD:
- Adjust OSD options according to latest changes in Main.
