Quick question Ger -- does feedpostbot post "unattended," or do I need to log in or refresh for the posts to appear? I have an rss feed that updates once per day, but can't really tell when/how it updates phpbb. It does, however, always update!

thanks

Hi, I'm having another problem with the Redfin feed. The extension creates duplicate topics for every item in the feed when the feed changes, at least when items are removed from the middle of the feed. /rdf:RDF/channel/dc:date changes but most of the individual /rdf:RDF/item/dc:date values don't change so I'm not sure what the bot uses to determine when to create new topics. I'm sending you the "before" and "after" feed files if it helps.

I know it's not the usual use case of RSS but I hope there's an easy fix. Thanks!

It uses phpBB cron by default, you can switch to server cron in your server settings.

Items shouldn't be removed from the middle of a feed... This might indeed disturb the process.

Hello,

There will soon be a stable version? I test on a forum in production and it works pretty well, I still encounter errors in the logs. I would not hesitate to send them here!

Thank you =)

It's in the validation queue for over a month now...

Please share them. Might be nothing, might be important.

Okay, I'll send you the error logs if I have it again!
Proposal, why not we propose the formatting of the publication (its contents)?

Example:

I cannot perceive every feeds contents, so when formatting is off, you should edit the post if necessary.

Well, that timeout comes from the server. Per feed you have a setting for the timeout (default 3) in seconds before the feed fetching aborts. If this time has passed without retrieving the feed content, the request is cancelled and that log appears. You can try to increase it, however: when you set it too high you might hit your servers max_execution_time setting. Upping it to about 5, 8 or 10 shouldn't be a problem though.

Yes, I'm pretty sure. Here's my thought in you ask the question. Having such a system in the PhpBB administration panel would be a plus, administrators would then be possible to customize the publications to the feed recovery.
{POSTBOT_IMAGE}

[POSTBOT_TITLE}
[POSTBOT_CONTENT}

{POSTBOT_SOURCE}
For the server, I will increase the limit, thanks to you!

That's been suggested before, but won't be implemented in this version. Perhaps some future release.

Hello Ger,
tried your extension and it's working on a 3.2.2 board with php 7.0.23.
On one RSS feed the description is ignored. Descriptions are like this:

Code: Select all

<description><![CDATA[<p>some text.</p>
