hello,
for the link of last post, i made a small change in line:

Code: Select all

 	   $post_link    = $board_url."/viewtopic.".$phpEx."?f=".$forumid."&t=".$topicid."#p".$row['topic_last_post_id'];

replaced with:

Code: Select all

              	   $post_link    = $board_url."/viewtopic.".$phpEx."?f=".$forumid."&t=".$topicid."&p=".$row['topic_last_post_id']."#p".$row['topic_last_post_id'];

Per-topic RSS feed (Re: simple RSS mod for phpBB3)

Post by cedarrapidsboy »

Thanks for the simple RSS mod. I was looking for this, but wanted just a bit more. Our forum is quite diverse, and receiving updates for the entire board, via RSS, is not desired for many users. The following modifications alter this mod to generate an RSS feed for the current topic (and its children/grandchildren).

For instance, if you are viewing the root of the board (f=0), an RSS for the entire board is generated. However, if you are viewing a particular forum (f=33), by clicking the RSS icon, you get a feed that includes all posts for f=33 and all children and grandchildren.

This is a mod of the mod. It depends on you having already installed the original mod.

In rss.php, find:

Code: Select all

include($phpbb_root_path . 'language/en/common.' . $phpEx);
add the following on a blank line after:

Code: Select all

include($phpbb_root_path . 'includes/functions_admin.' . $phpEx);
In rss.php, find:

Code: Select all

//Get the board url address
$board_url = generate_board_url();
add the following on a blank line after:

Code: Select all

if (!$f){
	$f = 'AND f.forum_id = f.forum_id';
} else {
	$rows = get_forum_branch($f, 'children', 'descending', true);
	$f='AND (';
	foreach ($rows as $row){
		$f .= 'OR f.forum_id = ' . $row['forum_id'] . "\n";
	}
	$f.=')';
	$f = str_replace("(OR ","(",$f);
}
In rss.php, find:

Code: Select all

        $sql = 'SELECT f.forum_id,f.forum_name, f.forum_desc_options, t.topic_title, t.topic_id,t.topic_last_post_id,t.topic_last_poster_name, p.post_time, p.post_text, 
        	p.bbcode_uid, p.bbcode_bitfield, u.username, u.user_id
                FROM  '. FORUMS_TABLE .'  f,'.TOPICS_TABLE.' t, '.POSTS_TABLE.' p,'.USERS_TABLE.' u
                WHERE t.forum_id = f.forum_id
                AND t.topic_status != 1
                AND p.post_id = t.topic_last_post_id 
                AND u.user_id = p.poster_id
                ORDER BY t.topic_last_post_id DESC';	
replace with:

Code: Select all

        $sql = 'SELECT f.forum_id,f.forum_name, f.forum_desc_options, t.topic_title, t.topic_id,t.topic_last_post_id,t.topic_last_poster_name, p.post_time, p.post_text, 
        	p.bbcode_uid, p.bbcode_bitfield, u.username, u.user_id
                FROM  '. FORUMS_TABLE .'  f,'.TOPICS_TABLE.' t, '.POSTS_TABLE.' p,'.USERS_TABLE.' u
                WHERE t.forum_id = f.forum_id
                AND t.topic_status != 1
                AND p.post_id = t.topic_last_post_id 
                AND u.user_id = p.poster_id
                '.$f.'
                ORDER BY t.topic_last_post_id DESC';	
in includes/functions.php, find:

Code: Select all

'U_RSS'			=>append_sid("{$phpbb_root_path}rss.$phpEx"), 
replace with:

Code: Select all

'U_RSS'			=>append_sid("{$phpbb_root_path}rss.$phpEx") . (($f === 0 || !(empty($f))) ? '?f=' . $f : ''),
The above code may not follow guidelines, so I welcome optimizations/corrections by those smarter and more inclined. I'm particularly concerned about the inclusion of the admin_functions, but think the original mod does due-diligence in preventing unauthorized access.

These simple additions to the already brilliant RSS feed mod, I think, make it even more useful. Thanks again for the original work.

I have install the mod and it seems to be working with one exception. It repeats the same forum post about 9 times. I have changed one line

Code: Select all

  WHERE t.forum_id = 7
I only want it to post from one forum. I also would like it to show the replies. I tried some of the code examples on this forum topic but they all seem to do the same thing with the repeat.

Any thoughts?

Don't have any immediate thoughts about the "replies" issue, but my modification above (two posts) should allow you to get a feed for the currently visible forum, reducing the number of posts you see in your feed.

I have change the Rss.php and the functions.php. It works fine until I change the

Code: Select all

WHERE t.forum_id = 7
Then it starts repeating. Does this not work to only select one forum?

Check out http://www.saylorvilleyachtclub.org/phpBB3/rss.php you will see what I mean.

I tried your edits, and it changes the link just fine to: /rss.php?f=* but it still shows all latest posts across the entire forum. No matter what number is put there..
(Tried double-checking it and all that)

thanks for this MOD. But I don't understand why new messages are not automatically include in the RSS feed. It's already bloked with the old messages.
edit: it's about 180min that the new message is in the RSS feed. Is it normal?
Does anyone have any comment on this? I'm also finding that new posts are not being included in the feed...at least not since I installed v1.0.5 a hour or so ago.

Love this mod!

Just one question. Is it possible to make an .xml page for the feed ?

Reason I ask is that although I can access the rss.php page online, I just get a blank page when accessing it from a mobile device.
Anyone got any ideas ?!
Anyone ???!!!

I am looking for an RSS feed option that lets me or the author place the content of the post into a feed. That feed would then get pinged by sites like PingOmatic for distribution to the major news readers. We do not want a general feed of all posts as some might be sensitive. Just a button that would output the one post to the RSS file of my choice.
Thanks

Open the xml file (which you will find inside the folder) in IE and follow the instructions.

Thanks. I did it carefully, but no chances with rss.php?f=id ... Why?
