    So is there any plans in the future to create a RSS feed for Martial Talk. I wouldn't mind putting one on my site.

    It's on my 'look into' list. At the moment, I haven't got a clue how to 'feed' it though.

    Probably get something with the search function you have now. But instead of outputting html, it outputs xml. Or just a ten most recent posts, preferrably something that can narrowed down to category or forum. You may want to cache it in a database so it doesn't always query the same seach function over and over again.

    Just a note: RSS feeds are about to be indexed by ODP, which will of course be eventually listed at google and other directory sites that use ODP.123
