I'm getting an error when i test the authentication portion.

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: phpbb_clean_username() in /home/msgbrd/public_html/MB/forums/includes/rss_functions.php on line 153

I'm rocking a pretty old version of phpbb (2.0.1) which i suspect is the culprit. is there a change i can make or am i SOL?

I have no idea where to place this, I hope this is the right place.

I installed one of the many RSS mods (sorry i can't remember which one it was).

Now, i have de-installed everything again - but the RSS icon still shows up in the right bottom corner in firefox.

What do I have to remove to get rid of that?

thanks :)

Is there a trim character option for post body, or just leave one paragraph?
In order to encourage ppl to go to the forum, I want to trunciate the post before the "Read More" appears.

Any help?

Thanks!

*EDIT* OK, I found the simple way to do it here, it works. But how can I add a "......." at the end of the truncated post if there is more text to read?

Re: Announcement and Sticky Support

Post by shirleycaat » Wed Oct 19, 2005 10:58 am

Hello,

I can see your mod works in RSS aggreators, but how can I use it in the same website? like you do.
I simply want to display topic titles of all stickys in somewhere of my forum.

Thanks!


Panama Jack wrote: I am surprised no one has ever asked for this before. We have a mod we created that would only display Announcements from a specific forum as news on our main web site http://www.aatraders.com . When I found this RSS mod I wanted to use it just for the news on the main page but couldn't. It would send every message in the forum.

The following mod will allow you to select the topic type to display.

There is a new variable 'tt' for topic type that can be included in your url.

Example: http://forums.aatraders.com/rss.php?f=7&t=1&tt=2

The above will send ONLY Announcement topics instead of all topics.

tt = 0 ; Send just normal topics
tt = 1 ; Send just Sticky topics
tt = 2 ; Send just Announcement topics

Leave tt empty to send all topics as before.

Find:

Code: Select all

if ( $topics_only == 1 )
{
	$sql_topics_only_where = 'AND p.post_id = t.topic_first_post_id';
}
After Add:

Code: Select all

// Return only specific topics.  2 = Ammouncements, 1 = Stickies, 0 = Normal
if ( isset($HTTP_GET_VARS['tt']) && ($HTTP_GET_VARS['tt'] == 0 || $HTTP_GET_VARS['tt'] == 1 || $HTTP_GET_VARS['tt'] == 2))
{
	$sql_topics_only_where .= " AND t.topic_type = '" . $HTTP_GET_VARS['tt'] . "'";
}

Hey guys,

I think I asked this before and I need to know again since I reloaded my entire board.

How do I set this so it doesn't show private posts from the forum.

I have a few sections that are marked private and I don't want those posts showing up on the RSS Feeds.

Please advise.
Much appreciloved,

The Suite
Thank you :-)

Hello,

Could you please change your MODs version number as outlined in MOD Development forum rules section 2. Your MOD as being in development requires a development version number as stated in the phpBB versioning scheme.

For example if your MOD is currently displaying v1.0.0, you can change it to 0.1.0 or 1.1.0, depending on your feelings of it's development status. Even minor version numbers (y of x.y.z) are reserved for release versions. If you believe your MOD is of a quality that deserves a release version, please do not hesitate to submit your MOD to the phpBB.com MODDB (MOD release database) for validation pending release.

Thank you,
The phpBB MOD Team

... though it seems the original author is on hiatus or has abandoned this... I'll wait and see.

FeedReader gets the guest version as it doesn't have a login cookie.

Anyway, I'm having the same problem. I'm getting this shown at the top of my feed:

Code: Select all

<!--
	This feed generated for Viper007Bond
	More info at http://naklon.info/rss/about.htm
-->
so I know it's reading my phpBB cookie, but I still don't see any posts from the registered viewing only forums. :(

Friends4U,

It does that to mine. I have 2 private forums on my board and whenever I post in there it comes through on the feed.

What did you have to do on your end to fix that issue?


I did nothing...

The original MOD author, chyduskam, seems to have abandoned this MOD, as he hasn't posted here since May 17, 2005. As such, I'm considering this MOD abandoned, and locking this topic.

chyduskam, if you come back and wish to continue development of this MOD, don't hesitate to contact me regarding this.
