    Thumbs up RSS for ABW
    Has anyone made a suggestion to get ABW in an RSS Feed?

    I've been using FireFox and the live bookmarks for RSS Feeds seems to be a nice feature that i am getting some use of.

    any options on this or a word from Haiko? I couldn't find any topics on this subject.

    Here's some info:

    Unfortunately, you can't currently search for three-letter words (like RSS, EPC, CPC, CTR, etc.). Haiko should look into extending the search to include three-letter words. It's probably due to a MySQL setting.

    Changed the search variable from 4 to 3 charectors.

    Also there are 5 links on the bottom of each and every page that are for the feed:

    i did see those links the other day, but i am wanting to use this with the "live bookmarks" feature of firefox and for some reason could not get it straight (the other day)

    I do have it working now (the regular rss2) but am unable to set it up for a new posts only feed "live bookmarks".

    A search for RSS still doesn't find any of the old posts.

    If the change was in MySQL and the forum is using Full-Text search, you might need to restart MySQL and/or rebuild the index. You can rebuild the index with "REPAIR TABLE [table_name] QUICK". See MySQL Reference Manual :: 12.6.4 Fine-Tuning MySQL Full-Text Search for details.

    If it's a different database, a different type of index, or a feature of the forum software, I'm sure it's something similar.

    It's not finding any old posts. Search for EPC, for instance. It'll find this post (because I just used it), but that's it. I'm sure there are hundreds of posts about EPC.

    kapsat,

    The rss link for new posts only is

    http://forum.abestweb.com/external.p...rss2&items=new

    Michael,

    I see that I will have to rebuild the search index (within VB), I'll do it later tonight because I'll have to close the board to do that.

    A major part of our down time today was the three charector re-indexing of our internal SE.
