Yes I know the first issue was ours. I was referring to the new one. And yes - there have been a lot of complaints that Google Reader is getting things wrong. Not saying it is not us but am saying it might not be the case.

Yeah, I think it is at this point (Google, I mean). It works for the forum topic, but not the forum itself. Could you confirm that it is issuing the rss feed and any of the necessary information the same for both the forum rss and the topic rss?

I also can't get the feeds to work whether it's Admin or regular member. They show up in the browser window but when I add them to Thunderbird which is what I use as my reader, they are not showing. I didn't quite understand what I was to change from the WebSVN link you gave as the green and red lines look exactly the same to me.

Thanks!

@Shari. If you have access to the \simple-press\forum\feeds\sp-feeds.php file (I download it using FTP, changed it, then uploaded again), you can add the green line (around line 19-20) and remove the red line (around line 50-51).

Ok, got everything to work, and in Google Reader by removing the trailing / from the feed url. So I'm all good laugh

So after umpteen times trying to get the Google Reader to properly subscribe my forum rss title, it now works in all browsers. I'm not sure if is fixed on Google's end, or if there is still an issue, but I just happened to sneak by the error these times. I will continue to test and post back later.
