    AlpineZone News & Featured Articles!

    Today, I'm pleased to announce the release of a new addition to AlpineZone.com - News & Featured Articles! This "News Portal" is driven by the new News & Featured Articles forum. Feel free to provide feedback on these news items and articles in this forum.

    If you are interested in submitting an article for review, click on the Usergroups link in the forum menu. Select the "Contributing Authors" Usergroup and click the "View Information" button. From the "Contributing Authors" Usergroup page, click the "Join Group" button.

    Your username will then be added to the "Contributing Authors" Usergroup. This will give you access to a private forum where you can submit your news item or featured article as a new topic. Once approved, your topic will be moved to the News & Featured Articles forum which will make it visible on the News & Featured Articles portal!

    I expect this to be an exciting new addition to the AlpineZone.com Web site and forums. Feedback or questions are welcome.

    I've set up an XML feed for the News section. For those of you with RSS readers or anyone that would like to put the AlpineZone News feed on their Web site, here is the URL:

    FYI. There is an RSS Module available for those that use My Yahoo pages:

    http://my.yahoo.com/s/rss-faq.html

    This could be a great way to get your AlpineZone News! Another awesome (and free!) tool for reading RSS feeds on Windows PCs is FeedReader:

    Great! I'm glad you find this useful. As an FYI, any other My Yahoo! users can easily add the AlpineZone News feed to their My Yahoo! account by clicking below:

    You'll notice similar links on the News portal and articles.

    i don't think it's working, here's what i got when clicking the link:

    We couldn't find the RSS file you asked for http://news.alpinezone.com/rss.php
    Suggestions:

    * - If you got here by clicking on an "Add to My" button, please notify the referring site's webmaster.
    * - If you entered the URL yourself, please check that the URL is correct and points to a valid RSS file.

    Weird. It works fine on my end, both in IE and Firefox. If you click on the RSS URL ( http://news.alpinezone.com/rss.php ), does it pull up the XML file as expected? I was monkeying with the news section around the time you posted this so perhaps that caused a problem. Can you try it now?

    I already had it setup, but I tried the link above anyway and it seemed to work as expected...

    Provided you're cookied into you My Yahoo! page, it should be pretty seamless - a two-click process. Yes, please let me know how you make out. Thanks!
