Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files  

So I wanted to add an image link to each forum for its unique RSS feed. This would allow people to subscribe to their favorite forums with their favorite News Reader instead of email. It would always be up to date and accurate.

There are three steps to doing this.

First, I decided I needed a small plugin to determine if RSS was turned on within the forumdisplay template. Go to your plugin manager and add the following code to the "forumdisplay_start" plugin.


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

Next we will be editing the forumdisplay template itself.

Find:

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

And replace with:

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

Finally the third step is to upload the attached image to represent your feed. If your site isn't set up to allow IE to view transparent backgrounds in PNG images, you will probably want to convert the image to a GIF format matted to your background.

I modified the if statement in the plugin to selectively eliminate the feed icon from private forums where no feed would exist anyway, in order to avoid confusion among my users.

Anyone know if I can list multiple forumids in one argument?

I can't install this.

The following error occurred when attempting to evaluate this template:

Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_ENCAPSED_AND_WHITESPACE, expecting T_STRING or T_VARIABLE or T_NUM_STRING in /home/global13/public_html/includes/adminfunctions_template.php(3537) : eval()'d code on line 41

This is likely caused by a malformed conditional statement. It is highly recommended that you fix this error before continuing, but you may continue as-is if you wish.
Anyone kind enough?

Thanks for the Mod. I installed it.

I was wondering why the whole post is displayed in my rss feeds rather than just a snippet of it like I see everywhere else?

Also, how do I set the url's in the rss feeds to not have &goto=newpost at the end of every thread url.

I'm having a little problem installing the mod on my forums, but I think its down to a custom style I'm using.

I've updated the forumdisplay_start plugin without a problem, but I can't find the correct html code that I need to replace in the forumdisplay template.

Here's my forumdisplay template... can anyone help??
