Bug report: when I edit a newsfeed the topic that it was assigned to is lost and it defaults to your first forum topic. Not noticing this, I went in a changed the number of stories in a feed, told it to go get the news, and ended up dumping a bunch of news in the wrong topic.

I'd like to syndicate articles from my site but haven't looked into that yet. I think there is a mod for phpBB => RSS here somewhere.

The FIND Output mod will do that... I linked to it earlier in the thread... Some others are Topics Anywhere and RDF Syndicator...

The link to the output mod is not working at the moment.

I looked at some of the other syndicators but they all seem to be missing the ability to include the first paragraph of the article. I really like the Variety.com music news feed on neclectic's site -- it includes the beginning of the article. This is so much better than just a link. Anyway, that's what I'd like to do if I can figure it out.

The output mod will grab however many words you tell it to grab and then output it for you... That link is up for me...

When I click on that link I get The topic or post you requested does not exist I'm registered, but maybe you have some kind of top secret clearance. :lol:

Now updated to version 1.0.1 - see first post for details.

To upgrade from version 1.0.0:
  • Upload All files
I'll give it a couple of days before uploading to the mods db to make sure there are no reported problems.

Code: Select all

Experten raten, bei dieser Hitze wenig zu trinken, nur mittags zu joggen, ger&ucherten Aal mit Sardellen zu essen und auf eine ausreichende Versorgung mit eiskaltem Eierlik&r zu achten.

Can you explain the problem in more detail...

Is this what you see in viewtopic?
Or is this the actual text of the post (e.g. when you click the edit button)?
