    On the Dashboard/Widget download site, there is already a widget for RSX forums (car dudes), where you can see new posts on their forum via widget.

    We need one here too!

    If it does, an RSS symbol will pop up in Safari under Tiger.

    Hell yeah, but I would want one for Off-Topic. The Mac Shack doesn't move fast enough to require a dashboard widgit.

    I took a look at the code, some of it is pretty easy to modify.. but for some reason, when I get it to load up the forum topics, they come up as garbage.. maybe somebody a little smarter than me will figure it out.. :/

    btw.. the OT RSS feed seems to only have the main "Off Topic" section.. we need to get individual RSS feeds for each section..

    *edit* er uhh nevermind, im insane..

    OT RSS Feeds:

    All of OT: http://forums.offtopic.com/external.php
    Mac Shack: http://forums.offtopic.com/external.php?forumids=128
    Just Off Topic: http://forums.offtopic.com/external.php?forumids=11

    As you can see all you have to do is put in the forum id into forumids to get whatever forum you want. If you want to do multiple forums, just add a comma and the other forums you want.

    Are you getting the CDATA garbage? I had that problem when I was making the Konfabulator widget but someone else finished it off.
