As you may have seen, in our new CM layout, an RSS button has appeared in the address bar in your browser.

The feed lists the at any time 10 newest posts on the CM boards, but this is only the detault; you can easily create your own custom feed with topics from any of the forums, and define for yourself how many posts to retrieve and how detailed they should be listed:

Under the "Introduction and Help" menu there is a "Syndication" link. Click it, and you wil get a page where you can design the feed of your choice.

You can use it to create an RSS feed, but also to create a javascript snippet you can put on any web page; this snippet will put a "news" block on your own web page that will list the CM forums or topics you like in the same way the RSS feed does.

Although this functionality was set up together with the new CM layout, it IS accessible if you are using one of the SubSilver flavours, we just haven´t built it in. To get it in SubSilver, you just go to this link:
http://forum.celestialmatters.org/topics_anywhere.php

... It does not look as good in SubSilver, but the functionality is the same.
