For this hack, we are using magpierss - simple and GPL.
===========================================================
MagpieRSS provides an XML-based (expat) RSS parser in PHP.

MagpieRSS is compatible with RSS 0.9 through RSS 1.0. Also parses RSS 1.0's modules, RSS 2.0, and Atom. (with a few exceptions)

http://magpierss.sourceforge.net/
===========================================================
Idea came from DigitalPoint. I have actually been using this for several months on my forum.
But with the new plugin system, it's even easier to share.

Install instructions:

Step 1)
Magpierss

Download & Install: http://magpierss.sourceforge.net/

Create a "cache" directory or make sure path is ok in: MAGPIEDIR/rss_cache.inc


Step 2)
Create a new profile field for the Blog - Note the field#
The example below is field 7.


Step 3)
Edit magpierss.xml
1. include your full path to magpierss/rss_fetch.inc
2. Change field 7 to applicable field.

Step 4)
Import magpierss.xml


Step 5)
In your postbit template add the following (note field #!):


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

The hack itself doesn't even work without hacking it yourself.

The author hasn't posted or updated since August.

Suggest someone create a better one.

Thanks

I installed the mod on my forum at http://www.WebmasterGround.com and after a few code changes, it worked as a charm.
The download files do not work if you do not modify them.

What did you do?

I tried all the code changes and I am just losing my minds. Carp RSS is not working either, this one is not working .. coult it be that I am that stupid

I tested it: http://www.wtricks.com/forums/magpierss/test.php

It does pull my titles it seems.

But I cannot make this show in my postbit for the life of me. What am I doing wrong?

This version works. It's a pain in the bum to install and get working, and you have to make Wonderworms changes for it to display the actual feed.

My suggestion is this. First off make sure that you are using the FULL PATH to the Magpie directory on your server.

If you are unsure about the fullpath, then create a php file that includes the following:


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

then upload that file to the same location as your Magpie directory and navigate to it using your browser. Your full path will then be displayed.

Ensure that you replace this part in the magpierss XML file:

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

with your Full path. It will be something like /home/username/public_html/magpie/rss_fetch.inc

Where username is the username on your host, and magpie is what you called the magpie directory on your server that you uploaded the files to.

I hope that dumbs it down a shade. If that's not your problem and it was something else let me know because it took me a few goes to get it to work and I probably had the same errors along the way.
