Good news ahead for all the people who don’t like forums in general, but still want to know what’s going on.
The Feed option has been available for a while and makes it possible to create personalized newsfeeds to follow specific forums and subforums. That’s nice, but sometimes it’s not enough.
If you follow Planet KDE you might have heard about the recent improvements on forum.kde.org, including the better search system. It’s faster, it allows you to search for common words (such as ‘kde’) and it offers more options to give more accurate results. However, that’s not all. Now it’s also possible to display the results as a newsfeed, which means that you can make highly customized feeds with posts that you’re interested in.
Below I’ll show you have to make such a feed with an example. If you want to play around with it yourself, head to Search.
Update October 10, 2009: Feed has been removed. You can use Search to archive the same thing.
