Is this mod still being developed? I can't believe phpbb doesn't come with RSS support out of the box. All I need is an XML file for the newest posts and then I can take that XML file or RSS feed and generate an embeddable widget with it that I can place on my website.

Hi, I'm using this mod + magpierss to feed a portal with the news from a phpbb3 forum.

Is there a way to export the Icon (or "icon_id") From the "phpbb_topics" Table so if I have something like this in my forum:

And like his in my website:
Image

to read from the rss the same icon from the forum to be showed in the portal?

(Thanks, and excuse my poor English... ;P)

Its working great on my site (RC7), although I didn't get the ATOM syndication working.

Thanks for a great mod.

Finally got this working now using the switches.

Using

Code: Select all

syndication.php?type=rss&t=1&fid=83
works just changed the 'fid' value to the forum you want the feeds from.

I am having the same problem. ATOM syndication corrupted when using on RC7.

That fix for the repeat feeds worked a treat.

How do I install this mod? There is no readme which comes with the mod files.

Open install.xml in your browser. That is the instructions to use this mod.


Feature Idea
I'm already looking at adding a Feed Subscription page to the UCP.

I know that IE7 etc have the RSS icon on the toolbar and there is a link to the feed in overall header but might be an idea to give the users all the options from the UCP as well.

Whether or not, it might be worthwhile to give instructions for it with the mod also.

Man, i would like to auto index all the new posts in the rss feed, so i don't have to put "fid=x"..."t=x". Is this possible? Something like an overall auto feed indexing in this rss. ;) Thanks!

Is there anyway to configure the plugin so that it only shows the latest forum threads instead of posts? Also, does anyone know if the plugin author has fallen off the face of the earth?

Disregard all of my posts. I have spent $85.00 today on something that shouldn't be mentioned here :o
