@Ghisler:

How did you manage setting the right time? I'm using feedreader, and the time of each posting is the time in our timezone.

However, I'm using this mod on my own forum (www.tweelingeiland.com, there I notice a 9 hours difference between the postingtime and the showntime in FeedReader. Is it something in the xsl template or so?
Regards,
Cornelis

According to this description it seems that we can get both separate rss chanels for every forum and right date&time of posts.
Using for example address like this:
www.ghisler.ch/board/rss.php?login&f=6
and putting our login and password (for TC forum) in our rss reader we get only info form Plugins Forum with the correct dates (as we set in our profile).

So try to use addresses as I've described above.
You get separate rss news for every forum:

www.ghisler.ch/board/rss.php?login&f=3 - English
www.ghisler.ch/board/rss.php?login&f=6 - Plugins
www.ghisler.ch/board/rss.php?login&f=7 - Polls

Great!! Is there RSS for the french version of the board? In this case, I would add this to one of my sites. (Am I supposed to post this message here or in the french area?). Bye :)

Before putting it anywhere wait a moment for Christian comments.

Christian hasn't published the links himself. I don't know why. Maybe cause he reads all the forums and he didn't see a need to do it. But maybe the reasons were different. Let's wait for his comments.

I put the links only to show that it's possible to do it cause some members asked for it (I also want to read only English ones).

But maybe Christian doesn't like this idea and he will disable it (if it's possible). Let's hope he won't. :-)

Under Maxthon browser it works like a charm, with both RSS and Atom feeds :) Thank you Christian.

:idea: I suggest renaming the channels to something more distinctive, like for example:

TCmd RSS (new messages)

or the like. This way, it wouldn't be a generic name and would be easier to spot it on the channel list (and no need to edit the name before adding to the list).

Also, and supporting a former request, sepparate feeds for the Eng, Fr & Ger forums is imperative. This should help lowering b/w usage too, because I do not need (as most users) to get German or French messages at all.

How about Reading what djk writes? Its allready possible to read only what you want with RSS:

www.ghisler.ch/board/rss.php?login&f=3 - English Forum
www.ghisler.ch/board/rss.php?login&f=4 - French Forum
www.ghisler.ch/board/rss.php?login&f=6 - Plugins Forum
www.ghisler.ch/board/rss.php?login&f=7 - Polls Forum

Me ie likes it to read all at once ;-)

I was meaning about including these in the automatic RSS detection that works under Mozilla, Firefox and Maxthon.
The currently available (automatic) channels are just:

RSS (new messages)
RSS (new threads)
RSS (new messages)
Atom (new messages)
Atom (new threads)

and they don't even specify that they are TotalCommander Forum related.

Sergio

Then you should try a RSS specific PRG.
RSSFeedEater for example tells me after entering
http://ghisler.ch/board/rss.php under details that
the title is "Total Commander (new messages)"...

If you haven't noticed, if you are e.g. in the English forum and click on the RSS button there, it will add a feed for just that forum!

And yes, it's OK to publish these links.

And what about us, standalone RSS reader users? We couldn't have noticed that.

Not exeactly. :-(
If you are in the list of threads of the forum (eg.English) it really shows correct rss address, but if you are deeper (in any thread) it shows only general link (i.e. http://ghisler.ch/board/rss.php).

You could add all the links in your first post.

BTW: I've written that I had some problems with links from this RSS in Miranda+ieview, but in the newest version of ieview it works corectly.

I don't know why it doesn't work in Miranda, the created XML looks quite normal. Perhaps you could ask the authors of Miranda? This RSS extension isn't my work, but since it's open source, I can make the necessary changes for Miranda if I knew what the problem is. Currently a single item looks like this:
