Feed for my forum is empty

Post by renegrothmann » Mon Feb 24, 2014 3:39 pm

I have a forum installed on my server at Strato using phpBB 3.0.11. The installation was automatic and smooth. Now I have enabled a feed for this forum. Here is the adress:

http://forum.euler-math-toolbox.de/feed.php

The feed looks okay to me. Feedly e.g. can find it, but shows no topics? Why? Clearly the XML code does contain topics.

Thanks for help

R. Grothmann

Depends on how you configured the feed settings in the ACP, see FAQ: phpBB ATOM feeds.

Good lord, so much I knew already. That is why I posted the link to look at. I just enabled everything. Probably, I will have to do my own research on feed formats. Thanks anyway.

The link to your feed page doesn't give us any access to your feed settings in the ACP, but you obviously know more about this than I do, so good luck.

First of all, the feed of the board is a feed. I posted the link above for someone to check. The file starts

Then, news readers find the feed. So there is one. But they do not expose any feed entries. The entries are in the feed as you can see in the linked text.

My suggestion is that the feed is malformed.

And the feed settings are very simple: I just enabled everything. I attach a screen dump.

I wished that anyone could help.

Yours, R.G.

The feed FAQ says
if you have not logged in to the board, the feed will use Guests rights.
So to me that means If a user has no permissions to view any topics then he will see no topics in the feed.
