Hi,

Works on my forum, but in the http://feedvalidator.org/ it gives quite some errors. Maybe you can iron out the errors in the file using this feed validator.

Some validation error are for unicode . As I have converted the date and time of my forum into my local language...Actually I can see the feed clearly using google reader and even in wordpress. So Any one can use it in his/her forum without any tension.

Hi,

I installed the file and when I point to it I get only the header with no listing. I was reading the code and I saw a call to $auth->actl_get('f_read',$forumid)). I assume that this call is to check the permission set on each forum before fetching the data from the database.

If this is correct, then the problem that I have is my forums can't be viewed unless a user is logged on. How can I get the RSS feed to work in this case?

For example, if I negate the previous call (added a "!"), I can see the latest items listed in the feed page.

Thanks in advance.

I think u r wrong. My mod shows posts from the forum in which any one have at least read access. That means if any guest can see post of any forum then the rss mod will give feed from this. I think there is no forum in your board which has guest access, am I right ? that means if any one want to see any post in your site then he has to register and login. In that case My mod will not work. :(.

Great and simple! just copy it to forumroot and browse to it...
Ran it in the validater linked above and fixed it for validation on my site.

1. ACP/General/Board Settings/Date Format : D, d M Y g:i O
2. Edit aprss2main.php :
Find:

Code: Select all

<rss version=\"2.0\">
Replace with:

Code: Select all

<rss version=\"2.0\"  xmlns:atom=\"http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom\">
Find:

Code: Select all

<managingEditor>".$config['board_email']."</managingEditor>
Replace with:

Code: Select all

<managingEditor>".$config['board_email']." (".$config['sitename']." Admin)</managingEditor> 
<atom:link href=\"".$base_url."aprss2main.php\" rel=\"self\" type=\"application/rss+xml\" />
(if you renamed the aprss2main.php file also rename it on the last editline)

One more edit to get rid of the "Feeds should not be served with the "text/html" media type" recommendation from http://feedvalidator.org
Find:

Code: Select all

$rss_result = "<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"UTF-8\"?>
Before add:

Code: Select all

header('Content-type: application/rss+xml; charset=UTF-8');

Thanks!

This worked great. Only problem I have now is I am using the phpbb3 seo and all my links are .html

It would be nice if I can find a way to keep the links in .html format from the feed. Anyone know how I can do this? Any input appreciated.

Is there a way to add an RSS link and image in the menu at the top of the forum?

Offcourse there is!
save this image to styles/prosilver/theme/images/icon_rss.gif (rigth-click/save picture as)
Image

open:
styles/prosilver/templates/overall_header.html
find:

Code: Select all

<ul class="linklist rightside">
After add:

Code: Select all

<li><a href="aprss2main.php" title="RSS Feed"><img src="{T_THEME_PATH}/images/icon_rss.gif"> RSS</a></li>
Note: if you have/going to rename rename aprss2main.php then replace with the same name here
