To get the raw xml feed.

To grab an rss feed, append a type variable:
http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?action=.xml;type=rss
Type can be one of rss, rss2, rdf or atom.

To grab a specific board or boards,
http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?action=.xml;type=rss;board=3,6

Will grab the feed from the help board here and the introduction archives (comma delimited list, but it's ordered that way).

To change the number of posts gathered:
http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?action=.xml;type=rss;board=3;limit=255

Where limit is any number from 5 to 255

There are a few 'second actions' available.

http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?action=.xml;type=rss;board=3;sa=recent

Will pull the most recent posts, otherwise the board= feeds in display order

http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?action=.xml;type=rss;board=3;sa=news

Displays topics only. This is the feed used to feed twitter.

http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?action=.xml;type=rss;limit=25;sa=members

Displays the most recent 25 members

So, yes, if you have a board here you can syndicate it however you wish : )

How is authentication handled, are all boards open to be read via RSS without a username/password combo?

(note, I don't think that is a big issue myself, but just wondering)

Cookie based like everything else, in order to access private boards you need to log in.

And if I would like to subscribe to particular threads? Can it be done?
(Are there RSS parameters for this?)

Vekseid, tried it already, and it doesn't work, I receive lots of out-of-thread results. For example, with
http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?action=.xml;type=rss;topic=54353
I should only see the "rss" thread, but what I see is "Re: Quote author=URL?".

Care to give me a look over the code so that I can fix it?
(Cut and paste into pastebin, for all I care).

We are running Simple Machines - http://www.simplemachines.org/

Most of the edits I've made (aside from a couple security things) just plug in through the SSI. If you open up index.php, you'll see the action list, which will tell you what files the xml action calls, then can look through that.
