Forum Feed / RSS

RSS (Rich Site Summary; originally RDF Site Summary; often called Really Simple Syndication) uses a family of standard web feed formats to publish frequently updated information like new topics in forums, new posts in topics. An RSS document (called “feed”, “web feed”, or “channel”) includes topic and post  titles/links/excerpt publishing date and author’s name.

RSS feeds allows publishers to syndicate data automatically. A standard XML file format ensures compatibility with many different machines/programs. RSS feeds also benefit users who want to receive timely updates from a favorite forum or to aggregate data from many forums.

In Settings > Forum Feed / RSS section, you can manage all SEO related options. This is a board specific setting page, if you have more than one board then you can find these settings under each dashboard menu of forum boards. For example, if you’ve created two forum boards “EN Forum” and “FR Forum”, then you’ll find the Forum Feed / RSS settings of each board in the corresponding menu:

  • Single Board Forum:
    • Dashboard > wpForo > Settings > Forum Feed / RSS
  • Multi-Boards Forum:
    • Dashboard > EN Forum > Settings > Forum Feed / RSS
    • Dashboard > FR Forum > Settings > Forum Feed / RSS
