We now have an RSS feed for news and both blogs now, click here (http://www.soldak.com/forums/external.php?type=rss1&forumids=5) for the feed. It basically is an RSS feed of the first post of each thread from this forum.

I've used this RSS feed for a long time. Due to a recent Soldak post on Google+, however, I just realized that I've been missing out on all those entries in your game development blog. Any chance those blog entries could be placed in the feed as well?

I usually update the front page when my blogs are about our games, so they should show up in the RSS feed. I do see them in my RSS feed on my Mac. I think there still is a time issue, I wonder if that is screwing up something.

If your blog entries are showing up on your feed, I must be using a different one. The feed I am using is:
http://www.soldak.com/forums/external.php?type=rss1&forumids=5

This is the feed returned by visiting the Soldak home page -> Blogs tab -> Blogs RSS (on the left column). This feed in Google Reader displays a single entry for November, two for September, then several for August consisting mainly of review announcements.

Is your feed pointing to a different URL?

Yeah, I guess you want to use a different feed. The feed specified at the beginning of this thread will only show form posts that are started in this forum.

The best rss feed to use is the Soldak front page RSS feed (http://www.soldak.com/component/option,com_rss/feed,RSS2.0/no_html,1/). You will probably get a few extra things but you won't miss anything important.
