I am testing this but thank you so much! I have been looking for something like this for months. This is one step towards a solution to an issue I have with RSS. I didn't see the point in clogging up the forum with tons of new threads that will get a low amount of comments on average. I am planning on using this on a thread but I don't want to allow users to comment in that thread. I would like for all replies for that forum to redirect to another thread so they are all concentrated in one place. Any suggestions for redirecting replies for one thread into another?

I'm wondering if your product can import Atom or other RSS types ? By default vBulletin can only read original RSS type, many RSS sources cannot be read by it!
Is here a difference?

Thank you!

If there's an atom feed that you want to use on your vB, open a free FeedBurner account, burn the feed, and then 'convert the format' to RSS 2.0.

Takes about 30 seconds. Works fine with vB.

I'm sorry this is not all follow the topic, but can I ask for one more? I've use FeedBurner but how can I 'convert the format' to RSS 2.0 ? in the FeedBurner panel?
Thank you!


P/s : thank you that's all OK now :P , but I still can't see the image, for example

I can use RSS to get post from this but there is NO images, the problem is at thumblogger ?

Hmm... well i just tried this, i wonder if i missed something, when i add the new rss source o see the "Post Items as Posts" option... but i can't tell it which thread will it go...

I'm having another issue... when rss creates a post, the content is only one line... but if i see this with my rss reader i get a paragraph, is this something related to vb?

Anyone knows how to modify this and show more content? :eeK:
thanks
