It could be done but you would of course have to limit the content to 140 characters. I would also strip out HTML as well. Of course you would have to write some script to periodically poll the feed and see what's new, or tie so code to an event like a reply or a new post.

Or just use twitterfeed.com. I setup an account to grab my smartfeed on my forum (From a dummy account that only grabs non-private forums so I do not have to alter the feed on my account). I just made a post so hopefully the process will post the new topic to my twitter account.

I will let you know the status of that test.

I wasn't aware of Twitterfeed.com but I am not surprised someone invented this.

Twitter just updated, worked great except the posts were reversed (oldest post was set as the newest on Twitter). I will have to play with the settings a bit to see if I can get that corrected.

Has anyone used this mod for this purpose?
That is an interesting idea... I think I might try that! :)
I'm glad my idea triggered something that someone else could test :lol: ... I will give it a bash this weekend when I get a chance, but please post your findings and hints.

Everything seems to work. The RSS feed is generated with posts in the correct order (newest up top) but I do not know why twitterfeed changes them, but oh well. Twitter feed lets you post up to 5 new items at a time to your twitter account and can update as quick as every half hour. Not sure how quickly smart feed updates but I assume it is right away.

Thanks for the idea! Enjoy. :)

Thanks a lot for a great mod Mark... I'm using your daily digests mod as well.

Re: phpBB Smartfeed 3.0.7

Post by kasala » Tue Apr 13, 2010 1:56 am

@ MarkDHamill or if anyone else may have the answer:

Can you tell me the steps you took to get this working on 3.0.7? I'm unable to find most of the code I need to edit per the instructions. I was able to locate some of it but not all of the variables listed so I'm unsure as to where to paste the code pieces in.

Thanks in advance!

The install.xml file contains the code changes. Database changes and module installation instructions are embedded in the umil_smartfeed_install.php program.

Nice MOD author! Tell me, can I display posts from a wordpress site (which isn't owned by me but I have a possible partnership possibility) on my forum with this mod?

Really no need to apologise at all, thanks for responding. So, do you know of ANY mod (released or BETA for phpBB3x) which can offer this?

Thanks in advance.

@ MarkDHamill

Disregard. Admin error. We recently migrated from phpbb 2.x to 3.x. I forgot that I had changed the url pointers on the virtual directories to point to the new install folder but didn't actually change the folder names. I was working in the old 2.x installation. Figured it out about midnight last night.

Thanks for the follow up.

This is a wildcard syntax meaning everything in these folders, including all files and subfolders. It is saying the root/umil folder in the archive should be copied to a umil archive in your phpBB root directory.
