I'm bit confused (too many questions
), but I'll try to answer everything ...
message - body
poster-name!? Would be interesting... IS the poster - included.
and what elese - !?
At first, this mod is only posting content of RSS feed to new topic in chosen forum and poster (postername) "must" be a registered phpBB user (but it's posible to make it posted "anonymous") ... Poster isn't included, it's just another phpBB account on your forum ...
If you are asking, which RSS tags are used for posting, then I'm parsing all RSS tags. At this time I'm using title, description, link, author & copyright, lastBuildDate (which is causing a bug with post time and replies now) ... In future versions I'll try to use most of the tags, which are usable and contain some data.
About "mirroring" the feed - I was already asked if this mod can "update" feeds into specified topic and I think it's interesting and I'll try to make it ... At this time, I'm absolutely unable to say if I am able to do this
, because I've already tested something like that and I think from my tests with (medium) long feeds, it's not good, because it must load very long RSS file ... and than you'll get a blank page, because server's time for the script runs out - many users/servers already reported it with the simple agregator/ap_bot mod core yet - so I don't know if I can make it (btw. it's not caused by the mod itself, but by the loading with curl/fopen - and there is no alternative to do it)
And about the rest. As was already discussed in this topic and in topic of my the other mod, most problems is caused by RSS feeds, which are not valid. In RSS
are some tags required and some are volunteer. If required tags are not available, (I think that) I'm replacing it with space (' ') ... If not required tags are not available, than I'm not doing anything ... Post's content is absolutely dependent on RSS's content and I'm only styling it (very simply at this time) and adding Copyright notice with link to original.
