Hi guys

Looks like there is a bug on the forum, as non-news forum posts are being published (I think it may even be all posts)

Anyway, here's a screenshot to show what I mean

What feed URL are you using?

It's weird because you only have to look at that URL in a browser to see it only contains news items.

Its seems to have fixed itself in Google. I'd be surprised if the bug was at Googles end, as that would mean it was scraping the forum directly based on the RSS feed address. I think more likely there was a temporary glitch on the feed for whatever reason that happened to coincide with Google reader grabbing an update, with the result being cached for a while in the reader.

Yeah I agree.

Thanks for pointing it out.

Hopefully it'll be fine from now on.
