I have always used an RSS feed to watch the forums without needing to go through my browser. Good for work or anywhere you don't particularly want to be going to the internet.
A lot of email products and desktop apps support RSS feeds.
Here is the FAQ regarding RSS from MTBR: http://forums.mtbr.com/faq.php?s=&do...l&titlesonly=0
Essentially you can get the new posts rss feed by entering into your RSS browser: http://forums.mtbr.com/external.php?type=rss2
You can get specific forums by using that previous like with the following appended: http://forums.mtbr.com/external.php?type=rss2&forumids=123
the 123 in the above example is the forum number which is part of the link to your forum of choice.To get the number you will need to right click on the forum page and select "view page source" Then you will need to find the following code:
- script type="***************" src="http://forums.mtbr.com/clientscript/vbulletin_global.js?v=387"></script>
- script type="***************" src="http://forums.mtbr.com/clientscript/vbulletin_menu.js?v=387"></script>
- link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="Mtbr Forums RSS Feed" href="http://forums.mtbr.com/external.php?type=RSS2" />
- link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="Mtbr Forums - Passion - RSS Feed" href="http://forums.mtbr.com/external.php?type=RSS2&forumids=44" /
In this case around line 326.
44 is your forum Id number.
Hope that helps if anyone is interested.
