vB Version: 3.5.0 Rating: (9 votes - 4.44 average) Installs: 277
Released: 17 Aug 2005 Last Update: 05 Oct 2005 Downloads: 295
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Additional Files  

This hack was made purely by request, and the fact IPB will have a similar system as default functionality, i wouldn't like them to have a upper hand to vbulletin

v1.5 Updates:
- Auto detect RSS settings system
- Forum stats rebuilt correctly (last post info)

v1.6 Updates:
- Various bug fixes

This once added to your forum allows you to connect to any RSS feed you desire, once set up the system will automatically post data from the RSS feed into threads within a specified forum.

Previews are available at the bottom, and an FAQ is built into the admin controls since I know not everyone will understand how to set up the options. Also an example to use a BBC UK News rss feed is below

Example BBC UK News Feed:
Feed Name: BBC UK News
Feed Location:
Feed Prefix: [BBC UK News]
Feed From User: Assign users username of your own choice
Feed Forum: Choose a forum you want threads to be posted into
Feed Read Direction: Newest First
Parent RSS Tag Name: channel
Items RSS Tag Name: item
Thread Title RSS Tag Name: title
Thread Post RSS Construct:
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Note: After adding a new feed i suggest clicking update for that feed, this will manually update that singular feed specified, the cron job included will automatically update all feeds, best not to have it update them all from the start otherwise it could execute a lot of queries. Further more I highly recommend you do not have lots of feeds unless your server can with-stand it.

Never mind. Figured out how to add the rssfeed table after uninstalling Inferno RSS in this thread.

thats because vb already has RSS functionality, this hack is out of date.

you can search any category for new posts seperately by adding &f=forumid

forumid being the number for example

So you can search seperate categories by adding the above links on your forums.. not sure if there is a hack somewhere for this.

I might have found a solution for the duplicate posts thing.. I replaced the post_thread() function with the following code:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Please not that it only checks on the title.. so each post with the same title will be seen as a duplicate post and not be added to the forums. I think it works for me.. I tested it on some RSS feeds which are updated since the last cronjob and it added 1/3/4 items and not all 20 items which are on the list.

One little change made to this piece of code.. added 'mysql_real_escape_string() over the $title var.. to prevent quotes from splitting the query in two resulting in a mysql-error.

This doesn't work with 3.6.8 - is there an update or a similar mod for 3.6.x?
