      Description

      Currently there is no way to set default values for the RSS feed type and Number of RSS recent articles for forums. If you enable RSS feeds for forums you still need to remember to set proper default values for those settings before RSS feeds display for a forum.

      We will be providing a patch that will allow those settings to be set to a default value at the site level, so that new forums will automatically be created with RSS feeds working.
