How to use RSS feeds with the forum

I was looking for a way to hook my RSS feed reader up to the forum, specifically so I could receive updates in my feed reader when a new topic was added to the News and Updates category. I’ve worked it out, so I’m posting this topic so it’s easily findable for anyone else who would like to do the same thing.

The RSS url is just the category url with .rss at the end.
The url of the News and Updates category is: https://forum.inaturalist.org/c/news-and-updates/15
So the RSS feed for the News and Updates category turns out to be: https://forum.inaturalist.org/c/news-and-updates/15.rss

There’s also a forum wide feed at https://forum.inaturalist.org/latest.rss if you want to see all new topics.

Not sure what RSS is? Here’s a video explanation.

I hope someone else finds this useful!
