RSS support for new replies to topics, not just new topics

Recommended Posts

When generating new RSS feeds, it would be helpful to have an option to include replies to topics, rather than just new topics.

The reason being is that sites like Discord are one of the reason discussion forums are seeing a lot less activity as time goes on. Personally I have my site linked to my Discord, and I use and RSS bot to send new of new posts from my forum to my Discord server, thereby allowing Discord to drive more traffic to my forum when people click those links.

As it stands, however, RSS output is limited in the admin cp to new status updates, new topics and new events. It would be really nice if there was an option to make a feed that includes new replies to existing topics.

The included image shows the place in the admin cp (System > RSS Feeds > Create New) where that option would likely appear, just for additional clarity.

It would be tricky as RSS doesn't really have a provision for nested items. It would need to send each comment with a unique URL and ID, which would mean some sort of processing would be needed to nest them on the other side.
