AGM Advanced vBNavbar RSS Reader (Flash-based)
'Display either an External Newsfeed or Latest Forum Posts in Your vBulletin Navbar'
Syrus XL Media - LIVE DEMO -> www.digitalport.co.uk
Please note BOTH versions are included in the download package.
Documentation is available in Word, PDF & Text - all included in package.



Introduction
This product is capable of showing either a Newsfeed from other websites using their RSS feeds, or the Latest Forum Posts version will display the latest posts from your forum directly within your vBulletin Navbar. It has been designed to fit the default navbar of the standard vBulletin style, and uses the same color scheme. It is coded to strip the standard HTML RSS layout code and use its own. The RSS reader is coded in ActionScript 2.0 to allow most users to use it without updating their Adobe Flash Browser Plugin.

Features include:

• Auto-scrolling feed
• Pause on mouse-over
• High-light description on mouse-over
• Buttons for Forward and Rewind feed
• Auto-detect flash version and notify user if update is required

Depending on which version you install, the reader will open in either a new window for use as a newsreader, or open in same window if used for latest forum posts. All the aforementioned features are available in both versions.

If you are familiar with vBulletin template coding then you can place
this product anywhere on your forum.

Installation
Upload all the files depending on which version you require (details in download package).

Edit the ag_read.php – this file acts as a proxy if you are pulling data from an external RSS source, it also allows you to specify the rss source, whether it is external or internal. You should change the value of the dataURL to suit your own requirements. If this is to point at your own forum then please enable external rss data handling via the AdminCP. By default we have set the dataURL to the BBC’s rss newsfeed in the external dataPull version and vBulletin.com for the Latest Posts demonstration.

Template Edit
This modification only requires one template edit, making it simple to install into any vBulletin setup.

I like the idea which gives websites a more polished feeling.

Any chances to alter the window size without hardcoding?

Not really, the window is hardcoded within the flash file. What sort of dimensions were you looking at?

I will resize it, and make it to a height of 65 pixels - I'll upload it, in both variations a little later.

It cannot be centered within the navbar - this would break the breadcrumbs on the left side of the navbar.

I'll see if I can code this into a flashvar - thus allowing people to alter the speed externally, via a variable which would be thousandths of a second e.g. ?delay=3000 would be 3 seconds.

You're welcome Gemma! You only have to ask about other modifications, I use - normally they do get released, just not all are available on here.
