New Feature: RSS Feed for new setups
Updated 08/03/2005 7:01 AM Post a reply Quote this post View Kerr's info
Users of Mozilla Firefox and other other RSS readers can now take advantage of GTVault RSS Setup feeds. The new feeds mirror the content in the "New Setups" sidebar, and are linked at the bottom of the "New Setups" sidebar. Here are the direct URLs:

GT4 New Setups
GT3 New Setups

If you aren't familiar with RSS or what it does, I highly recommend you look here or here for more info. RSS can make your web experience a whole lot simpler.

Ok if ya got firefox ect your ready to go.

Step 1.
click bookmarks and click manage bookmarks

Step 2.
A box wil appear showing all your favourite website links now you click on file (top left corner)

Sep 3.
Click new livemark and another box will apear

Step 4. Give it a name and then for the feedback location copy and paste this
http://www.gtvault.com/rss/gt4-setups.xml and then click OK

Step 5.
Move the live book mark link to were ya want it... I have it the bookmark tool bar folder and now repeat the same process for GT3 settings by copying and pasting this http://www.gtvault.com/rss/gt3-setups.xml

See? it wasn't an error after all I do the same on almost every site to do with data input or if it alows me such as latest gameing news....

The style item is not an error message. The XML files created for RSS use are not like regular web files and cannot be viewed in a browser in the typical manner. GT2000's post is a great example of how to set up a Live Bookmark in Firefox. I'll have to add that to the FAQ. Alternatively, users of Firefox 1.0PR and up should see a little orange and white icon at the bottom right of their browser. Click that icon and you should see a little "Subscribe to GTVault Setups RSS" link pop up. This will basically fast forward you to Step 4 in GT2000's post.

GT2000 - This is true. I use Noia Extreme. I've also noticed weird behavior with certain extensions that reside in the bottom right of the status bar. FoxyTunes and ForecastFox come to mind.

I like your sig! The extensibility of Firefox alone puts any current or upcoming version of IE to shame. That and the fact that pages render in Firefox much like they do in basically every other browser besides IE. IE has it's own "standard" when it comes to rendering pages.

You are getting a list of the most recent setups when viewing the "Live Bookmark" without having to physically visit GTVault. The RSS reader in Firefox is integrated into the browser itself. In other words, the browser needs to be open to read any "Live Bookmarks"

The "Live Bookmark" you set up is part of Firefox's Bookmarks, not the IE Favorites. These are two separate entities. Favorites = IE only = Not capable of showing RSS feeds.

hmmm strange coz it should be there. Click help in the browser windo and click on about Mozilla firefox and tell me what version you have. There were teething problems with the earily versions.

If it's not 1.0.4 or above then I sugest you download the latest build version.
http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/index.html

If it aint that then it could be somthin to do with the theme your using, somthimes things don't appear that should be there. Try using the standard theme and see what happens. oh and downloading that update and installing will just overwrite firefox files appart from the bookmark links and any other themes or Exstentions you have got so far.

If none of that help then it's Kerr's help once again to help Big Grin

In general, I highly recommend keeping up with the latest Firefox updates as the last three point releases contained numerous bugfixes and security patches. The updates aren't nearly as frequent as IE fixes, but they are just as important.

Any one heard of google earth before?
it's sic, you are looking at a 3D globe of the world, imagery sent by satalites. i've found my own home on their and the local beach that i surf at.
great work by google on this but you need a quik internet for the loading,
i'm not sure on this but i think the images are only a week late, but i can be corrected on this for sure.
If your interested visit Arrow http://earth.google.com/ and get a free download.
sorry this has nothing to do with the topic but i didnt know where else to post it.

gt188 - you're one of the few Opera users I know of -- not a bad thing though Smile. I am curious as to the look and feel of GTVault on Opera as I was unable to do testing specifically for this browser. It should render fine as all browsers aside from IE tend to display things basically the same. Send me a screenshot of the home page if you get a chance.
