    What does that mean??
    If you have a start-type page capable of receiving RSS feeds you can get the latest CPF threads to appear linked on that page.

    For instance... I use MyYahoo.... and I see this:

    by simple clicking the link found in the FAQ's

    For more information on how you can get an RSS feed click HERE to go to the FAQ's.

    Making content specific
    Say you only want to see the information from a only certain manufacturer or provider? You can choose specific forums to RSS feed by tailoring the URL to suit your needs...

    For example, I have a Motorola so I would choose to add this URL
    Code:
    http://cellphoneforums.net/external.php?type=rss2&forumids=81
    where the "81" at the end specifies then number at the end of the motorola forum http://cellphoneforums.net/f81 (look at the address bar in whatever forum it is YOU want to add... there's a number at the end of the URL!)

    If I wanted to add ringtones I would add this URL
    Code:
    http://cellphoneforums.net/external.php?type=rss2&forumids=36
    - "36" being the URL for the ringtones forum http://cellphoneforums.net/f36

    Make sense?

    MyYahoo
    I can only inform on this particular page 'cause its the one I use. If you'd like to add CPF just click the "add content" link at the top or bottom. In the "find content" area you'll see a link on the right that says "add RSS by URL," I used the page found in that link to add specific forums that apply to ME to my MyYahoo page by the method I described in "making content specific" above!

    The yahoo default gives you 5 recent threads, but if you hit "edit" at the top of a module you can increase that number to suit your purpose.

    Happy RSS feeding

    Oh, yeah!

    That is just way too cool! This will come in quite handy. Thanks for the 'My Yahoo' specific instructions, since that's one of my main portals.
