Hello fellow forum members!

I have recently realized that I'm not entering CentOS forums as before (too many forums/mailing lists to check).

Is there an RSS feed for CentOS 7 and CentOS 8 forums, so I can keep an eye on the interesting topics ?

It seems no such info in FAQ.

Yes, there is one : feed.php

BTW: myself not reading forums but I discovered this post through my RSS feeds (from thunderbird) , so it works ;-)

Great news.
Any way to filter per subforum ?

Subscribed myself to default feed.php, so getting everything.

But if you check options listed on phpbb, you see you can add options : https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?t=2029415
Post-based feed Settings
Number of items = X (default 10).

Enable board-wide feed = Feed with X most recent posts from all topics in all forums.
URL = feed.php

Enable per-forum feeds = Feed with X most recent posts from all topics in the selected forum.
URL = feed.php?f=[ForumID]

Enable per-topic feeds = Feed with X most recent posts from the selected topic.
URL = feed.php?f=[ForumID]&t=[TopicID]

Topic-based feed settings
Number of items = Y (default 15).

Enable new topics feed = Board wide feed with the first post of Y most recent topics in all forums.
URL = feed.php?mode=topics

Enable active topics feed = Feed that shows Y last posts, not older then 7 days, for forums that have "Display active topics" enabled.
URL = feed.php?mode=topics_active

News feed = Feed that shows first post of the topics in selected forums.
URL = feed.php?mode=news

Other feeds and settings:
Enable forums feed = Feed that shows a list of all forum titles (not the contents), excluded those forums you have no access to, but including passworded forums (not considered as bug).
URL = feed.php?mode=forums

Nah , it seems that only global feed works, I tried to filter by forum, but it always provides feed for everything.

Works for me: feed.php?f=11 gives only posts in "User Comments"

Thanks for your reply, Trevor.

I have wiped the feed and added it again and now there are no duplicates. I guess it was an issue on my side.
