p.s. if the main uechi-ryu.com site is using mambo/joomla there are RSS modules available. it would be neat to have a uechi-ryu feed.

just a thought.

that can be found on the home page directory. Haven't found any good martial art feeds though.

Let me know if you find any.

i like your selection of feeds. i'm a free software zelot.

since your website and forums generate a lot of content you should consider making your own feed instead of displaying others. if you install a module to make your own feed let me know and i'll carry your feed at my site.

just a thought.

i have about five feeds i read currently but none of them are karate specific. http://mma.newmag.org/modules/xhld0/

cheers.

send me the modular information? I'll give it a try if it isn't too difficult.

don't hesitate to tell me to shut up and stop posting geek stuff. i just like playing with free software. here we go...

if you are going to use a content management system like joomla (i prefer xoops, but both seem to work well. are you using joomla?) why not use it for everything? integrate your forums into joomla. instead of using two seperate programs. but maybe you like using phpbb on it's own instead of module form inside of joomla, that's possible. anyway, i did a quick look around the phpbb site and found this:
http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=144548
an rss content syndicator. with this you can create your own rss feed based on the content generated in your very active forums. it will most likely add a few more hits to your site and if you have members who like to use rss they'll be happy too.

i did a quick look around the joomla site and didn't find a simple explanation on how to set up your own rss feed but i did notice that joomla.org did have rss available on their site, so i'd guess it's built in and you'd find the controls in the administration menu if it's not a separate module. it shouldn't be difficult. go to http://forum.joomla.org/ and scream help. i've done it with xoops and it's very very easy.

as always back up your database and do a complete directory backup before playing around! i've lost tons of work before because i thought i knew more than i really did. backups are our friend.

here's my feed.
http://mma.newmag.org/modules/rss/

sorry i didn't give great instructions but i don't use the same cms as you but the general ideas are the same. good luck!

I'm still learning and was absolutely amazed when I learned the site had a "stats" program and the number of people on the site 24 hours a day are staggering! I added the "stat" module and the "feed" program to the home page.

What I am most disappointed about is the meager stats on the Forums. When they were moved to a large server, the numbers were fairly good and growing. Then they peaked and dropped like a bomb.

On the "popular sites" module, the forums are at the bottom of the list. Most distressing.

Any suggestions for building back the viewers would be appreciated. Certainly the content of the forums over the past few months has been top quality material that should appeal to just about all martial artist.
