Hello,
if you'll set index init to enabled, than index.php will update latest data of the feed ... If you'll also turn index posting to enabled than it will make a post in specified forum ... Making topic replies is not working yet.
If you'll enable cron init - no actions wil be performed on index - so enable this only if you'll set up a cron job on your server, initing update_feeds.php
... If cron posting is enabled, feed items will be posted into specified forum ...

Newsticker will come, when I'll find a cool one ;-)

I applied the edits and ran the install.php and I got this at the top of my board

"Warning: Call-time pass-by-reference has been deprecated in /home/mutank/testboard/forums/includes/mods/smixmods_feed_news_center.class.php on line 715"

Line 715 is

Code: Select all

	submit_post ('post', $subject, '', POST_NORMAL, &$poll, &$data, true, true);

EDIT: I have submitted a bug report ticket.

The find in language/en/acp/common.php is slightly different in mine, all appears to be working so I assume it's the same file.

This is what you say find

Code: Select all

'LOG_ERROR_EMAIL'		=> 'E-mail error» %s',
I have this

Code: Select all

'LOG_ERROR_EMAIL'		=> '<strong>E-mail error</strong><br />» %s',
Theres also an error in the DIY instructions with this line, I assume you should copy this to root

Code: Select all

After editing all templates, copy file contrib/install.php to contrib/install.php.

@therat
Thanks for informations about bad installation instructions, I´ll check it ...

About the file location, no, it´s correct, copy to contrib/install.php and run the script ...


@rabbmasterflash
... why are you waiting? ... check your settings, after submitting the form, the feed will be checked, parsed and maybe posted ... It depends on the settings you´ve got in the "General Configuration" part of this mod ACP. Defaultly it´s everything disabled
