Post by ideology » 04 August 05 9:17 am

we are alpha testing RSS feeds. if you want to give them a go please point your rss client to
http://geocaching.com.au/xml/caches/au/tas.rss
and similar URLs

but you have to promise to let us know how they go!

In Firefox, I had to add the rss feeds manually to my bookmarks. I grabbed an existing rss feed bookmark that I had, copied it then made the changes. Have got both the vic caches and the forum feeds working fine.

thanks - did what you said and now it all works - can't see MSIE getting much use anymore - I'm a Firefox convert ;-)
