I’m a member of a forum that uses Discourse as its forum software. I’ve been working on a bot that scrapes data from the site’s RSS feed and posts anything new it sees in my Discord server. I have the bot working just fine, but I had a question about something I found while working on this. In a discourse forum’s RSS feed, there’s a line that looks like this:
I’m particularly curious about what this number means:
I’ve tried going to
meta.discourse.org/813192, and several other combinations of this, all returning the “Oops, this page doesn’t exist” message.
So my question is, what does this number mean, and what is the point of this line in the RSS feed of a discourse forum?
