Hi Scott,

I've got it setup using Newsgator at home (Outlook plugin) and as a straight RSS feed in Outlook 2007 at work. Both are working, as your post appeared in them just now.

Looks like it's Firefox that's not working properly.

Are you using a 3rd party addon to subscribe to the feed? Or the inbuilt Live Bookmarks thing?

Cheers,

Steve

If I browse to

http://www.desertfoxclan.com/forumrss.php

in Internet Explorer I get what looks like a valid XML document and then an error at the bottom

Code:
The XML page cannot be displayed
Cannot view XML input using XSL style sheet. Please correct the error and then click the Refresh button, or try again later.

so it doesn't like something in one of the posts and Firefox is not forgiving of the problem at all.

It was the pound sign - it took offence at that. I'd already encoded it in the message bodies, but this one was in the title. Should be ok now. £FTW Smile
