Other features :
1a) I build some (non rss-compatible) xml feeds that give additional information on an item like the address of its phpbb topic & the number of replies (very useful to build discussions and a kind of list of "hot pages", see my demo forum below)
1b) the titles of the ouput items are the same as the original items titles (no 60 characters limit)
1c) there's an option where, if you change the title of the phpbb topic of an item, then the title of the item in the output feed changes accordingly
1d) there's no item duplication if there's 1 identical item in 2 different source feeds (same item URL) (useful when mixing social bookmarking source feeds)
1e) you can delete an item from the output feed by deleting it's topic. The mod will remember it and won't re-add it next time ...

Here is an intro I have posted on my forum : http://seattlefrancophone.info/viewtopic.php?p=743

On the forum homepage, in the right column, you can now access 3 lists of favorite pages from the web (Selection de Pages web Commentees, bookmarks sociaux sur "french seattle", articles de blogs de Seattle connus). New pages are extracted automatically from the web every hour.
The new thing is that for each page listed you can click on the small icon with the discussing men () to reach a topic on the forum with some comments on the page.
Adding a comment in a page's topic makes it go to the top of the list again (there might be a delay of 2 hours max before the list is refreshed).
If needed the title of a page can be changed by changing the title of the page's topic. Only moderators can do that so don't hesitate to post a request in the page's topic if you want to change a title
In a similar way it's possible to remove a page from the list of favorite pages by removing its topic.
And it's possible to subscribe to the newsfeeds of the favorite pages.
The newsfeeds with the small talking man are very similar to the lists displayed on the homepage (for example the order of the pages in the feeds is the same). The newsfeeds with the regular icons () are very similar to the original feeds on which the list of favorites are based. Pages listed in these feeds are not reordered and their titles always stay the same.
You can add some pages in these lists of favorites by using a "social bookmarking tool", see here : http://seattlefrancophone.info/viewtopic.php?t=237
