If you have Display games owned by madmartyau installed you need to do a edit to make SFNC work.

In:
includes/mods/smixmods_feed_news_center.class.php
Find:

Code: Select all

'enable_sig'        => true,
After add.

Code: Select all

'enable_games'      => false,
Set it to true or false depending on you're preferences.

not seeing the error messages ... well not so far so that seems like a good thing...

have another issues

if some one posts while the bot is doing its things my quotes get messed up

instead looking like
pitviper wrote:THIS SOUNDS FUCKING MAHOOSIVE!!

It'll be proper chaos on D!!

they look like

Code: Select all

[quote="pitviper"]THIS SOUNDS FUCKING MAHOOSIVE!!

It'll be proper chaos on D!![/quote]
surely as I keep the feeds to a single forum and the user ID is a dedicated user, it should NOT be interfering with other posts anywhere on the boards... still loving the MOD though... but due to this mess it makes of people quotes I can not have the bot run as regularly as I would like... so new coming into the board is often old and already been reported on by a user

@UltimatePlayStation
Actually, it's not "lists" (as I wrote :oops:) but only one list/selectbox used for selecting forum, where topics will be posted ... It was added because users with SEO mods have had problem with getting the ID of the forum. Few more fixes were applied and now it seems that everything works. No other features were added in this mini update ...
... anyway, you can update it simply by copying the new files over old ones, no further edits necessary

@conan_troutman
Thanks for report, I'll have a look on this deeply

@Mass
Thanks for information! :-)

@shiyiming
Thanks for report ... Interesting ...

@JazzyM
Your basic settings must be set according to your server. Please read :arrow: this post, for more informations. If you have more questions, please be more specific, thanks.



If everything works now, I'll finally rework the ACP (to step by step adding of the feed with feed data/connection check) and prepare it more to the feed templates in next version yet ... Maybe a simple (and by simple I mean simple - just for testing purposes) newsticker will be nice ...

I'm having some problems. I'm pulling in a feed from this Url: http://n4g.com/rss/news?channel=&sort=latest

However, when the bot is posting in my forum it's not including the URL of the stories. The feed title is the hyper link, which is what I want available to my users, but instead the MOD is making this URL the title of the topic.

Can anyone think of a way to maintain the topic title, but also make sure that the URL is still included?

Fantastic Mod by the way! Incredibly useful! :D

Couple of questions.

Can you use BBCode in the Feed Names e.g. RSS Feed 1 instead of just RSS Feed 1, when it's posted?

Also, I've got the Steam News RRS feed to post correnctly.

http://store.steampowered.com/feeds/news.xml

But all I get is the clickable url link & nothing displays in the actual post. Is it a limit of the RSS feed from Steam that it doesn't display the contents of the actual post on the Steam News page?

Any help appreciated.

Thank you for the mod

I have very small question

What URL I have to use if I want that whatever new post will be going to made in the this forum

Code: Select all

http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewforum.php?f=70
They should be posted as it is to my forum, means all code tags, quotes everything should be the same.

You will only get the content phpBB.com provides though. There is nothing this mod can do about that.

Not for the regular user. You need to edit the SFN files manually, and there are no guides/support for that, yet.
Maybe once "Posting Templates" becomes available.
