# Try “question feed”

From another meta question here, I guess this is a little-known feature.

Look at a question page on MO. On the right, below BLOG, HOT META POSTS, Related etc., you will find:

Click on that to add yourself to the "feed" for that question. How it works, I think, depends on how your computer has been configured. In my case, these notifications arrive in my "News".

I note that there is a "user feed" at the bottom of a user's profile page, so it seems you can sign up to be notified of whatever that user posts. Look around. You may find other feeds as well.

• I suppose there is a "tag feed" as well, associated to each tag. – Mateusz Kwaśnicki Jan 25 '19 at 13:22
• @MateuszKwaśnicki This post is relatively old, but it might be interesting in this context, since it lists many various feeds: What other hidden or inobvious RSS feeds are available on Stack Exchange and its sites? – Martin Sleziak Jan 25 '19 at 20:44
• @jeq Often (always?) when you search for some tags, you can see also a feed there. For example, if I search for questions in tags (lo.logic) or (reverse-math), I can see feed called "recently active lo.logic or reverse-math questions feed" on the right. (The "recently active" part is dependent on the sorting I have used.) Several feeds for featured questions in a specific tag are posted in the Listing bounties chatroom. – Martin Sleziak Jan 25 '19 at 20:51
• @GeraldEdgar You probably have more experience with feeds than I do - when you use this "question feed", it shows when a new answer is posted - but not comments on the question or on answer, right? – Martin Sleziak Jan 25 '19 at 21:52
• If, instead of clicking on "question feed", you "download linked file", you get an XML file showing the recent activity for the question. Full text: questions, answers, comments. Presumably you need to set up RSS to work on your computer. – Gerald Edgar Jan 26 '19 at 13:08
• @GeraldEdgar I am not sure whether your comment is intended to say that your RSS gets also new comments (not just answers). If yes, could you perhaps add a screenshot showing this? I do not think that what you wrote in the previous comment is really correct. For example, you can see that your comment is not shown anywhere in the feed for this question. Here is a screenshot showing what I got from the feed for this question. – Martin Sleziak Jan 27 '19 at 14:57
• I know very little about RSS, so you may be right. – Gerald Edgar Jan 27 '19 at 23:01
