First of all download carp from here: http://www.geckotribe.com/rss/carp/

I am using the free version and it works perfectly.

Unzip the carp archive (zip) and upload the carp folder to your forums home directory.

Upload the carpsetup.php to the same directory as of your showthread.php (forums home) folder.

Run the setup file, it will give you two choices..

1) directory cache and the other.. mysql cache. I am using directory cache and I recommend you to try this one.

When you hit next, carp will install cache folders to your carp/ directory. If you don't see any errors here then the setup is complete, you should now delete the carpsetup.php from the forum home directory and carpsetupinc.php from your forums/carp/ directory. If you encountered any errors here then it's highly likely that you need to change the directory permissions for you /carp folder in order allow the script to create cache directories.

Now the rest of the process is fairly simple.

Open your admincp (vb) and create a custom profile field. It should be Single-Line text box. Click next and fill the fields. Give it an appropriate title/description, i.e:

For title: Blog Feed
For description: Enter your Blog's RSS feed URL here i.e. http://myblog.com/rss.xml

Leave the default value field empty. Change max length allowed for user input to 200. Field should be editable by user, not a private field, not searchable on member list and do not show on member list. Leave the regular expressions field blank. In the Display page option below, set it to Edit profile and click save.

Now add two plugins in your admincp's Plugins and Products >> Add new plugin. For the first plugin: Selected "global_start" as your hook location, give it an appropriate title (can be anything) and paste the following php code in the plugin php code area:



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

Set the plugin to active and click save. Now it's time to add the second plugin:

Attach it to postbit_display_start as the hook location, give it a title & paste the following code in the plugin php code area:



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

Be sure to change CarpCacheShow($post[field5]); to your correct field #.

Set the plugin to active and click save.

Now open your postbit template:

FIND


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

ABOVE ADD


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

Save your template. Now to test it, go to your usercp> edit profile and scroll down, you will see the Blog Feed option there, add your blog's rss feed and hit save changes. Now go to your forums and look for any of your post.. you will see the latest blog link below your username.

If you encounter any problems then post a message here and I will try to fix it accordingly.

Thanks to this member for the 3.5 mod! http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?p=1390269

To get the link to open in a new window, in the php code, just under CarpConf('iorder','link');

Enter this CarpConf('linktarget',1);

Save and reload the plugins page.

And it works just fine on my page.

Now if I could just this working with Grouper instead of Carp.

I'am having a problem with carp not writing the temporary files. Everything has been working fine for maybe a year and a half, and all of a sudden problems start.
