Brand New to ElkAte forums

I used to use SMF a lot but it's been years. I'm trying to figure out the primary rss feed and if there are feeds for each category. The only experiences I have are with SMF. Out of the box Elkarte appears more attractive and user friendly. Nice design.

Thank you for any help.

Aloha
