Reading through the documentation on the native DNN module I should be able to see a RSS feed icon in the left bottom corner when I have RSS feed enabled, however I can not find the icon?  My want is to use it to feed a "latest forum posts" spot on my home page when a registered user logs into the site.  

Is this something that still works or has it been removed?  I'm still running DNN 7

Kyle,

it looks like this, but I suspect it is not an intentional remove, but a bug as it still works with this version of the Forums module in DNN 6 - please report it on the GitHub project site.

You should be aware that this version of the Forums module does not work in DNN 8+, so do not upgrade your DNN installation before there is something newer (or migrate to another forum, like YAF for DNN or Active Forums)!

Anyway, to help you with your problem: You can still access the feed using the following Url:

http(s)://[YOURSITE]/DesktopModules/Forum/Forum_Rss.aspx?forumid=[FORUMID]&tabid=[TABID]&mid=[MODULEID]

Please don't hesitate if you have any questions about these IDs, I can tell you how to find them, but for the case that you know it, I am a bit lazy now and wait until you tell me you need it. :-)

Happy DNNing!
Michael

Michael, thanks for the info.  Looking and go not see how to easily find those ID's so help would be greatly appreciated.  I actually like the resident DNN forum module over Active Forums, and for 7.x could not get YAF to load without a fatal error in DNN.

Kyle,

the forum Id can be found in the querystring when you enter the forum, the Url looks something like

http://seven.local/Modules/Forum/forumid/1/scope/threads

The TabId can be found by querying the Tab table, go to Host :: SQL and enter the following:

SELECT * FROM {databaseOwner}{objectQualifier}Tabs WHERE TabName = 'Forum'

(or whatever the page name of your forum page is)

To find the ModuleId use this query after you did the query above:

SELECT * FROM {databaseOwner}{objectQualifier}TabModules WHERE TabId = 91 AND ModuleTitle = 'Forum'

(or whatever the TabId found before and the module title is in your case)

Happy DNNing!
Michael
