Re: [Beta]simple rss mod for phpbb3

Post by Ingersoll1978 »

This MOD was way less painful than I thought it would be! Thanks!

BTW...I was wondering where I would insert code for internet explorer to recognize in the tool bar that a feed is available?

According to this:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/com ... icate.mspx

It says this code has to be on the page for the RSS feed indicator to come on:

Code: Select all

<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="Title of Web Feed" href="URL of Web Feed"/>
Where would I insert this?

Your continued help would be greatly appreciated!

This looks great. Is there any chance that this mod will support non-public forums in the future? In other words, make a user able to get a feed after having input user credentials in his RSS reader..

Very good Idea.. I will check if it's possible. If any one can help me about this then it's fine because I am busy with my job.

This mod works great. However i did have a question was modering if anyone could help. I descided to use this mod on my forum. I then imported the RSS feed in my Wordpress however when i rollover the specified topic with my mouse I get a large yellow section popup with text. Giving me the actual topic information.

Example can be seen here. How can i fix my rss.php to limit what shows in that bubble

This is brilliant thank you.

I've integrated into a non prosilver theme, now im just having issues of where i want to place the rss image.

Thank you so much for this, this will help me add new functionality to my website, and increase the offerings that i can give my users.

Now will they use it?

This appears to be exactly the mod that I need, to replace the RSS feed generated by my current phpBB2 "3um".

However, I do have a question. I plan on using this exactly the same way that my current RSS feed is used, i.e. with no feed icon. Do I need to do any of the code changes if I don't want this functionality?

EDIT: I tried it out, looks like it works nicely! This was my biggest hurdle to a seamless transition from 2 to 3... 8-)

Hi to everyone!
My question is pretty quite simple.
I'm running a website with Joomla 1.5.2 and phpbb 3.0.1 on.
So far so good.
As I'd like to offer visitors a RSS feed service on my forum also, I installed this mod.
Well, I have a problem: the RSS script seems to be working fine but if I copy the address of the script to a feed aggregator, no feeds are being generated.

Just to make things simpler, this is the URL; take a look by yourselves.

I'd like this feed to pull from just one forum instead of all, is that an easy code adjustment?
Also, is there a way to remove the "subscribe" header from the top?

I love the look and simplicity, nice job!
