I have completed the RSS development for the Trip Reports and the Trips/Events pages. In addition, the mod has been applied to provide an RSS feed from the Utah Caving Forum. I have not talked to Wayne Harrison yet about applying the mod to the NSS forum.

At the top of both the Trip Reports and the Trips/Events pages you will see a small RSS icon. If you click on the icon, it will popup a window that provides an explanation of what RSS is and why it can be useful. You can go directly to this page at http://www.caves.org/grotto/slgrotto/rss_help.php .

All of these pages support RSS auto-discovery. However, Internet Explorer 6 does not support this so this won't matter to nearly everyone. However, for Firefox users, you will see a small RSS logo on the status bar for these pages.

For anyone that is new, here are the URLs for the above web sites:
Trips/Events: http://www.caves.org/grotto/slgrotto/slgrotto.php?front=events.php

Trip Reports:
http://www.caves.org/grotto/slgrotto/slgrotto.php?front=tripreports.php

Utah Caving Forum:
http://www.caves.org/grotto/slgrotto/phpbb2/


The URLs for the RSS feeds themselves can be found below. If you paste these into a browser, you will get a big pile of XML. These URLs are for your newsreader.

Trips/Events: http://www.caves.org/grotto/slgrotto/events.php?rss=1
Trip Reports: http://www.caves.org/grotto/slgrotto/tripreports.php?rss=1
Caving Forum: http://www.caves.org/grotto/slgrotto/phpbb2/rss.php

There has been an RSS feed available for the NSS discussion forum for some time, it just took me awhile to find it. The url for the default version of the feed is http://www.caves.org/phpBB2/topics_anywhere.php?mode=show&out=rss2.0&f=uMSwyLDQsNSw2LDcsOCw5LDExLDEyLDEzLDE1LDE2LDE3LDE4LDIwLDIxLDIz&n=10&sfn=y&r=y&sr=y&b=non&lpb=0&lpd=0. It is possible to configure this feed to only monitor specific forums, etc. This can be accomplished by going to http://www.caves.org/phpBB2/topics_anywhere.php and setting options appropriately. When you press the submit button, a new URL will be generated for use in your RSS reader that has the options embedded in it.

It appears to me that the NSS RSS feed operates at a topic level rather than a post level. To me, this is not nearly as useful as the RSS feed that is available on this site. However, it is configurable so that's something.
