Convert (Post) RSS entries to the forum as real posts

Post by bitcoin » Wed Dec 03, 2014 7:02 pm

Is there a way to take an RSS feed as input and get all RSS entries posted to my forum's childboard as real articles (posts)? Would be awesome and it seems the other forum has MODs to do this. I couldn't find one for phpBB though. Anyone? I'm open for suggestions :)

You could try viewtopic.php?f=70&t=1965465

Note: it says its for phpbb version 3.0.6 so some of the file edits may be different, and it is not to be used by automod. Be sure to read the known bugs.

Good find! Thank you for that, I'll be testing them out. First I have to figure out how to install :) AutoMod not supported ;p

PS: also found this one viewtopic.php?f=70&t=1858455

post-edit: now also looking at http://www.hudsonatwell.co/store/rss2ph ... creenshots
2nd post-edit: also found this https://verrytechnical.com/automaticall ... o-phpbb-3/
3th post-edit: one of the solutions wasn't available for download any longer. I contacted the dev, he returned this: I just made this public on github here: https://github.com/atwellpub/rss2phpbb/tree/master. This program is NOT supported any longer, but I thought to include it for testing purposes.

Final post-edit: I went with this solution viewtopic.php?f=70&t=1965465&p=13845941#p13845941. I just finished setting it up, but it should work. Should :)

Thanks for all whom commented!
