I hope my unsuccessful search is correct and that there is no mention of this elsewhere (apologies if age related optical decay and congenital incompetence mean I've missed it) but are there any plans to start an RSS feed from FTM like (dare I say it) that from our former home at MFI?

I'm not sure whether you're asking about the FTM home page or the forums (the MFI home page had an RSS feed, but MFIF didn't). As far as the FTM forums are concerned, though, I'm still undecided about enabling the RSS feed feature.

BTW, regarding your unsuccessful search: seems to me a search for RSS feed should turn up that "We need RSS feeds for this site." thread, but I tried and for some reason it doesn't find any of those posts. Can't figure out why. confused

I don't think the phrase RSS feed appears anywhere in that thread; it's always RSS feeds. Likewise, an all-forums search for job turns up no results, even though a a search for jobs turns up 30 hits. The software appears not to consider a matching portion of word to be a match for a search word. (Which is probably actually as it should be; otherwise seaching for, say, hi would turn up all the results containing his.)

Edit Reason: Is anyone using the dark theme aside from Hal?

Might want to add a "don't view my post in ubbthreads-dark" line to your sig. wink
[some readers could get awfully confused otherwise. grin i.e., the "s" is all but invisible.]

FWIW, my 3 'colors-of-choice' which seem to work well in both light and dark themes are: FF6600, 33CC00, and 3366FF (all on row 4 of the palette).

Many forum searches require words 4 letters or longer, so maybe the search is just ignoring the 3 word items like rss & job.
