Subscribe to Entire Forum or RSS Feed of Entire Forum
You could use something like this
Is this what you mean?
I am surprised that this RSS issue remains unresolved, given the history and number of questions on getting RSS feeds out of bbPress.
I have been unable to find a solution and am now thinking that bbPress was the wrong choice.
what’s not working at this point? i was able to get an RSS feed of all topics/replies on my site – then fed it into feedburner to get a daily digest
Perhaps then I do not know what I am doing.
I have created a site that has bbPress as its members only forum component with a user name and password login.
The last software I used had an option on each Forum to receive new forum posts and Topics via email amd/or RSS. bbPress , does not appear – to me – to have that option.
From what I am reading in these forums it is a much sort after feature but does not seem to get satisfactorily addressed.
So for my site – the syntax indicated aboved worked perfectly as a listing of ALL topics/replies: http://www.yoursite.com/?feed=rss2&post_type=forum
What I then did was setup google feedburner to notify me daily of any changes to that feed so that I can go in and reply as needed. feedburner send these updates at around 3am, which isn’t great if your community is VERY active – but for my purposes this was fine
i presume you can find another rss –> email service that polls the site more frequently and notifies you much sooner….
this along the lines of what you need?
Thanks for that. I shall have a play with these addresses. Thanks for responding.
I use the “new topic notifications” plugin mentioned above quite successfully. My members love it.

thanks a lot for this!
Via rss2: can i filter to a specific forum/category and or only to topic or reply?
Just add /feed/ to the end of the URL:
eg. A specific forum eg. example.com/forums/myforum/feed/
eg. A topic example.com/forums/topic/this-is-my-topic/feed/
eg. This topic here at bbpress.org
from what I can tell, users are not able to control their own subscribe to forum settings through the site though, right? That’s a bummer.
Each user can manage their own email subscriptions to topics via their user profile eg.
If a user wants to subscribe to an RSS feed simply add /feed/ to the end of any URL.
hmmm, I think one of us is misunderstanding the other…
You seem to be describing the ability to manage existing subscriptions to topics, right?
I’m trying to find a way users can subscribe to email updates when a new TOPIC is created in a forum, not just new replies to a topic.
Why not use @jaredatch‘s plugin he mentions in the very first reply of this thread?
Send notification emails to specific users when a new bbPress topic is posted.
because I’d have to manually type in people’s email addresses and manually remove them. It’s also for any topic. It’d be nice to be able to only subscribe to new topics in forum X and not in forum Y.
Did you get any joy with this, as I have the same issue.
The problem plugin does not do what is required because users cannot subscribe themselves to forums, like they can to topics.
(By “plug-in” above I mean bbpress-new-topic-notifications/. Do not seem to be able to edit my entries any more?
I was playing around with http://www.yoursite.com/?feed=rss2&post_type=forum
This seems to work alright for monitoring public forum feeds.
However, this doesn’t seem to work for private or hidden forums.
Is there a way to pull RSS feeds that use a login of some sort?
