Could be. The u parameter is the user_id in the phpBB board, and the p is the password hash, which is further encrypted.

Smartfeed on PHP5

Post by chasetec »

Just wanted to mention that it seems that Smartfeed requires "register_long_arrays = On" in your php.ini when using PHP5. By default this is turned off.

I installed the SmartFeed not too long ago, but the small problem I am having is when people make a new post. Sometimes the new post icon shows up, and sometimes it doesn't. What file could I research and find out the issue? OR has anyone else had this issue?

Not sure what you mean. If you mean the new post icon in phpBB it is not replicated in the feed itself. The way to check for new items is to request the feed again.

Perhaps you are using a specific newsreader which shows a new post icon?

I mean, when someone posts on my forum, this icon should appear:

But sometimes it doesnt, other times it does.

That's a phpBB issue, and has nothing to do with Smartfeed.

Hi, I was wondering if this MOD or if anyone knows of some other MOD that can generate Javascript based content syndication.

Is there any ?

I don't think you need a phpBB mod to add Javascript to your web page to get newsfeed content. Of course it assumes they have Javascript installed, and a fairly recently browser that can handle XML.

Might find something here:

Well, it assumes you know what newsfeeds are all about.

How it works can be described in the comments in smartfeed.mod:

Code: Select all

## phpBB forums may contain restricted forums that should not normally be exposed as a newsfeed. Smartfeed
## is a phpBB modification, derived from my phpBB Email Digest modification, that allows users to get a newsfeed
## for selected forums, including restricted forums if they have the privilege. T[b]his is done by using an 
## interface program called smartfeed_url.php which creates a URL that authenticates the user with phpBB.[/b]
## Smartfeed is smart enough to keep users out of forums for which they do not have access, even if they hack
## parameters on the URL field. Authentication is reasonably sophisticated. Those who are not registered can 
## access in the newsfeed only those forums that can be read by the public.
If you invoke smartfeed_url.php after installation, you will find out more information on the screen. There is also additional information in the FAQ once installed.

Mark, please be patient with me. I do not think I know what newsfeed is about. :( Can you explain it more about newsfeed? Is it something that collects the thread topics into one page? Then someone can have this collection of thread topics listed on their website, right?

Edit: After I install this mod, I am supposed to go to smartfeed_url.php to generate a url. When I press generate, it saids on the right hand bottom "script error". What can I be doing wrong?

allways, when i paste the URL generate show this message:
Error in your SmartFeed URL

There is an error in the URL you used to retrieve this newsfeed. As a result, no content can be returned. Use this error information as a guide to correcting the problem. Please note that you must use this program to create a URL that can be used with SmartFeed. The error is: The "u" parameter must be used with the "p" parameter.
