You need a feed reader first, for Firefox i suggest:
https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addo ... src=search

Then add feeds, for active topics example you can use this mockup
https://ROOT/app.php/feed?mode=topics_active

Extra tip: You can find any feed which is active for a specific page by just browsing the source code of the page; they are after the title-attribute. Eg for this page:

Code: Select all

<title>phpBB &bull; Live feed for forums</title>

	<link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="Feed - phpBB.com" href="/community/feed" />	<link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="Feed - News" href="/community/feed?mode=news" />
	<link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="Feed - phpBB.com" href="/community/feed">	<link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="Feed - News" href="/community/feed/news">	<link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="Feed - All forums" href="/community/feed/forums">			<link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="Feed - Forum - phpBB Discussion" href="/community/feed/forum/64">	<link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="Feed - Topic - Live feed for forums" href="/community/feed/topic/2524566">	
In former times browers showed up those feeds automatically.

The above Feed reader I linked has a facility to find active feeds.

Does Knowledge Base - FAQ: phpBB ATOM feeds help? That's what I've been using on my boards to provide feeds for a subset of our forums.
