Google just hit our site and all the 404 errors (which turned into 500 errors for another reason) got me digging into the problem....

We serve our askbot instance from a subdirectory url (like /forum/questions instead of /questions)

The correct setting for that is

ASKBOT_URL = 'forum/'

And this works well for all of the urls except the feeds url. The feeds url seems to be hardcoded to /feeds/rss in our installation.

I can see in the askbot/skins/default/templates/main_page/tab_bar.html (link) that there is a conditional that says {{ feeds_url }} while other links use the {% url namehere %} approach

I put a pull request on github for it. I don't know Askbot as well as you do, hopefully you can make sense of whether it changes the original intention for the {{ feeds_url }} variable.
