RSS Feeds For The Forums?

Is it at all possible to setup RSS feeds for each of the individual boards here at DVDtalk? I just recently setup an iGoogle page and added the DVDtalk reviews gadget, I've also added numerous other forums that have RSS feeds setup, it is really convenient! And, if it is not too much trouble, I would love to be able to add RSS feeds for the Other, Bargains, TV, and Movie boards here.

This'll sound a little cumbersome, but it works.

Okay, let's say you want to get RSS feeds for the Other forum, DVD Bargains, and DVD Talk.

When you move your mouse over each of those forums on the main index -- and when you click on them -- you'll see forum IDs in the URL. The URL for the Other forum is http://forum.dvdtalk.com/forumdisplay.php?f=9, for instance, so its forum ID is "9".

You can plug those into a URL like this:

http://forum.dvdtalk.com/external.ph...forumids=9,1,3

That RSS feed combines all of the recent posts in those three forums.

You could also break that out into several URLs if you want things to be really granular:

Other: http://forum.dvdtalk.com/external.ph...rss&forumids=9
DVD Talk: Other: http://forum.dvdtalk.com/external.ph...rss&forumids=3
DVD Bargains: http://forum.dvdtalk.com/external.ph...rss&forumids=1

Does that make sense?
