I am *almost* sure that this is not possible but just in case I am in error, is it possible to read these boards via a newsgroup reader?

I ask because I am not able to be on the net a lot and I have an offline newsgroup reader that enables me to capture and read after I'm off the net.

Thanks and Best Regards, Bullitt

Welcome to WebmasterWorld, Bullitt! Check out Marcia's excellent WebmasterWorld Welcome and Guide to the Basics [webmasterworld.com]

My guess is that you won't be able to. This is a web based forum and not a news group. News groups are a different kettle of fish to online discussion boards, and I don't think that you can access a www board from a newsgroup reader.

I'm sure an admin/mod will confirm or deny this soon enough!

Hi Bullitt,

Welcome to the board. I believe not. WebmasterWorld is a website, a different protocol than news readers understands.

USENET is a different protocol from the web.
