--------------------------------- DESCRIPTION ---------------------------------

By default vBulletin 3.6, 3.7, 3.8, 4.0, 4.1 and 4.2 can import RSS elements as threads and announcements.
This mod allows you to import them as messages as well!
It can be convenient for RSS with the important information which doesn't required to be discussed.

----------------------------------- REMARKS -----------------------------------

If the thread ID does not set, than the name of RSS feed will be the used as title of the topic.
If the topic still does not exist in the specified forum, it will be created with first item of RSS.
Practically all adjustments for display of RSS items as topics will influence on their display as posts.

No. If you read the last few posts you will see it stopped working after 4.1.3.

I wish it would work for 4.1.8

I'm having issues of duplicate RSS Feed being created as new Threads. I don't want duplicates and the RSS Feed Manager will not ignore feeds it has already pulled.
