Sorry, but I have no time for updating this mod to 4.x and even for testing it.
I can confirm that using this edit also works for 4.0.2

Thanks!

There is a problem with adding rss using this hack.
If I am adding RSS feed with more titles (over 10) and adding each rss feed as a separate forum post, then first 10 posts in chronological order always end up on my forum on a second page (as forum posts number 11-20) and on the first page are posts older.
Obviously, it means that if newer posts are starting on a second page, then an entire thread will make no sense.
For this single reason I can't use it.
Can you provide the fix?

UPDATE:
I think it has something to do with the Date of the post.
I've manually changed the dates of all 20 posts in POST table (under dateline) and all forum post are sorted fine now.
Is there any way to add this to your script? Maybe it could use dates from RSS or something like that, because all 20 posts (in this case) had the same epoch.

Ive read this entire thread and I did not see mention of something:

Is this hack enabled to pull multiple different RSS feeds into different areas
of your forum?
IOW, I hypothetically have one RSS news feed ported into a news forum subsection, and
a second RSS feed from a photography site ported into an Art forum area and a
third RSS feed from a weather site ported into a regional weather forum area, etc, etc ,etc.
[All on the same board]

This hack can do that?

Super-six, I would have thought all you need do is create separate RSS feeds to each forum via the RSS Feed Manager to achieve this?

I currently feed various feeds to various forums, this hack would hopefully add the feed as posts to to given thread in given forum

however I have yet to test the RSS items as posts but do use the built in RSS Feed Manager to deliver to the various forums on topic

hope this helps and whether zcarot can add to this

Very excited to get going with this one!

Does anyone know if it is possible (using this plug in) to have multiple RSS feeds streaming into ONE thread?

Yes, just set both feeds to use the same thread ID. Make sure they're both set to "new item as post" and not "new item as thread".

I don't understand the install instructions... the current version is 0.5.3- do I only make the file edits under "Install" or none at all- it looks like I don''t need to make any file edits but if so why include them in the readme file at all?

ThreadID would be the number from the thread url.

For example this thread url is:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=201742
The thread id is: 201742
