RSS URLs for Flex Community Categories?

Anybody know what are (or, better, where to find) the URLs for the RSS feeds for the main "Categories" on the Flex Community site? I had RSS working fine up til the end of January, then upgraded my computer, and now my previous RSS newsreader setup isn't working on the Flex Community Categories. I recall it was pretty easy to find the RSS URLs before, but after the interface design change I can't find the current RSS URLs anywhere.

I do see the "Follow" button which has what looks like an RSS icon, and clicking it does something but I know not what: it switches to "Unfollow" and back but nothing else seems to change in my browser and my newsreader isn't affected.

This is almost certainly my own myopia; maybe your eyes are better. Feel free to reply off-list, and thanks,

If you look under your PROFILE you will see an EMAILS and NOTIFICATIONS tab.  If RSS was enabled on the forum you should see detail at the bottom of that page.  I don't think it is enabled.

Right you are, Richard, there's no action at all in the RSS section. Flex, how do we get this turned on? - Les, W9XC

Tim, just like W4/G7EIX below, my profile's Email/Notifications page has nothing clickable or settable under the "RSS Feeds" section. So we need more detail on how to enable RSS, if it's indeed still do-able.

I don't see any feeds for anything I am following. Also there are no options in my notifications section to enable them. 

Am I missing something obvious?

If I understand the explanation from Get Satisfaction in Tim's link and look closely at the example shown there, Flex needs to be the one to provide RSS feeds for new topics and/or new activity on existing topics.

Yes.    Which as I recall was there in the initial version of the community before the upgrade.

There is only ONE RSS feed available.

This feed is now broken as of today. Can someone please fix it? I use it daily.

Here is the error message:

WP HTTP Error: SSL certificate problem, verify that the CA cert is OK. Details: error:14090086:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE:certificate verify failed


Thanks,

Kevin.
