Mmm, just trying to finally understand how to use this Content Island from my Threads v6.5.1.1

Confusing for me seeing how I have very little understanding of RSS Feeds. I set up a content island and now just trying to figure out how to get it to display.

Here's my script:

<script src="http://www.f-bodyhideout.com/ubbthreads/ContentIslands/2_html.js" language="Javascript1.3" type="text/javascript"></script>


Then I see this as well:

To use the RSS 1.0 format, you must point an RSS agent at this URL: http://www.f-bodyhideout.com/ubbthreads/ContentIslands/2_rss10.xml


Is there any good write-ups from users of Threads that have success with this stuff?

the output looks correct. You point your users to it so that those who have rss readers (trillian, morpheus, etc.) can keep track of your topics.

Ack....well, not so sure this is something I want to invest the time into or that many of my users will invest the time into.

Allen, thank you however for responding to this.

no problem, actually there's no more time to invest and for those who use rss readers it's a nice feature to offer:


Something like this would be posted in a sidebar:

Mmmm, yea, I think that this RSS for most of my users will be in the dark on using. This RSS has never come about on our forums, so this may not even be worth the time. But I do thank you Allen for helping me along with the understanding of this.

I have this working fine, but it seems that you have to "update" them to get them to update otherwise they never change, and there doesnt appear to be an automatic way to do this, which seems daft.. perhaps im missing something here..

How do you get the system to automatically update those feeds ?
