I'm using forum software that creates a new RSS feed for every new thread. It doesn't seem to create one for all threads though. I'd like to have a script detect when a new RSS feed is created on the forum and add it to a master RSS feed. That way, I can subscribe and be alerted as to when new threads are created and I can also output the latest forum topics on a website.

I was thinking I could build the master RSS list in Yahoo Pipes, but I need to know how to auto-detect when new RSS feeds are created. Any advice?

Look into "ping services". whatever software you are using to detect the rss feed, might have a "notification" service that will "ping" some site when there is a new rss feed available.

Either way, it is going to be software dependent.
