    Question Adding forum posts to KAgregator

    I'm running 20.04 beta and suddenly KAgregator appeared in my system tray. I opened it up and there were several folders to various websites containing their posts.

    I decided to add KFN to KAgregator and when I clicked the + button it asked for a URL. What to put there? Does KFN even have such a feed?

    EDIT:
    NEVER MIND. All I had to do was put KFN's web address into the URL and KAgregator sorted everything out.

    If that stops working or anything, the actual RSS xml feed url is https://www.kubuntuforums.net/external.php?type=RSS2

    Here is what KAgregator found:
    https://www.kubuntuforums.net/external.php?type=RSS2

    I tried your URL out. It fetches the titles OK but when I click on a title it does not populate the content. So, I restored the link KAgregator found and all works well again.

    Fixed. The forum must be forwarding the reader to the actual feed.

    Had an update this afternoon (2/9/20) for 175 apps. After the update was done I rebooted. Everything appeared to come back up normally. KAgregator was highlighted in the system tray. I clicked on it to open it. ALL my feeds were gone. My attempts to re-add KubuntuForums has failed. I cannot add any feeds to the app.

    EDIT:
    Unwilling to give up I reopened the Kagregator UI and noticed that "all feeds", which still had "0" msgs associated with it, now had a right carot prefixed. I clicked on that carot and all the feeds showed up, with KubuntuForumsNet appearing 5 times. I deleted 4 of them. Now things are back to normal.

    Well, you can always change the menu entry to HacKgregator
