Today I posted the following message in vBulletin's Forums to try and get them to modify the blog so that they each category can be viewed as an RSS Feed.


Currently viewing RSS Feed views public blogs posted regardless of category.

It would be nice to click on View RSS feed and only view a specific category.

Example 1:

Figured out the blog display problem Private Entry

Posted 06-23-2009 at 08:55 PM by niewczyk

I figured out why blogs were not showing. It's because the displayed blogs are "Featured Blogs" which need to be set up in the Admin tool under vBulletin Blog -> Blog Featured Entries where you can add as many feature entries as you wish. You can add them Random Entry, Specific Entry and Latest Entry.

You can check out the blog at http://blog.ancestry-world.com and see the test blog.
