Default RSS Newb. Help with BBForums.

Please Login to Remove!

Hi. I just discoverd what a wonderful little app Viigo is.

Now what I'm looking to do is add RSS feeds from certain forums of the site and not the entire site.

So what I want to do is add a RSS feed into Viigo that will update me on the posts in Media Center and Device Specific - Bold.

I can't however figure out how to do it. Through Viigo i managed to add the entire BBForums site but it has a lot of junk in it i'm not interested in. ANy help?

It is. RSS feeds do not need to end in an particular extension, they only need to produce xml properly formed using RSS structure. Click the links Adam posted and you will see they do.

They do work, as is, in Viigo. Enjoy.

Wirelessly posted (Bold 9000)

Okay I understand now. As long as the link shows up in that format it will display in a RSS program.

Thanks everyone. I had to manually enter the name and URL but I got the feeds working.
