I noticed many bloggers use the  “recent blog area” option in some forums and others don’t. Maybe they dont have a RSS-supported blog or they don’t want to show their recent post.

forum_rss

In this post I will show you how to use this feature or how to use it without RSS or if you need to transform it to a permanent link.

A- – Create a file and  name it :  norss.xml

B– Write this code in the file :

<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”UTF-8″?>
<rss version=”2.0″
xmlns:content=”http://purl.org/rss/1.0/modules/content/”
xmlns:wfw=”http://wellformedweb.org/CommentAPI/”
xmlns:dc=”http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/”
xmlns:atom=”http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom”
>

C– Change this in the code :

a) yoursite.com >>  Your website link.

b) Site Name >> Your website name.

c) Your Link Name >>  The anchor text that you want to show in the forum.

d) Site Description >> Write some lines about your website.

D– Upload the file norss.xml to your site.

* From the next step it shows you how to add any xml file to the forum. So If you have your xml file already created or your blog platform support RSS, you can specify the URL for the XML feed, and the most recent blog entry will show under your username in your posts.

E– Go to :

http://Forum-Link.com/profile.php?do=editoptions

and scorll down to : Blog XML Feed URL and enter the link to the file norss.xml .

F– Click SAVE CHANGES and you are done 😉
