This mod takes your typical common or garden rss / xml news feeds and delivers them direct to your forums, i.e. inserts them as posts right into the forum(s) of your choice.
It should be setup to use an existing user account. Each feed can be delivered by a different user. Each news feed can be delivered to a different forum. You can limit the number of articles which will be returned from the news feed.
All the topic / post counts of both the forums and the user are kept up to date. Also all the search information is updated.
I am assuming that you know what you're doing with regards to cron or it's equivalent. If you don't then please DO NOT install this mod past Step 3.
You'll have to have a forum(s) setup which you want the news feed(s) to go into and a user account with posting rights in that forum(s). Some news feeds contain html, so you may want to enable html (or install the 'admin only html' mod and set your news feed user as an administrator).
Anyway the instructions themselves are pretty straight forward (hopefully )
I've added a list of newsfeed sources here which i'll hopefully keep updated. If anybody has any newsfeed sources they'd like to share they can pm me with the details or post in the thread mentioned. I'll also be updating a list included in the admin page of the mod with each release.
Here are a few example news feeds you could try to start you off...
