[ Older version can be found here ]

This nifty little utility will present a list of all of your forums RSS feeds on one page! Your users can then easily pick & choose which forums they want to subscribe to via RSS, Google, Yahoo, or Bloglines.

Ever go to a big site like CNN and view their page of RSS feeds that you can subscribe to? This is the same thing but for your vBulletin forums!

In addition to your users, the search engine spiders will love this!

We went out of our way to make sure that this CinVin vBulletin add-on was quick & easy to both install and modify!
  • Automatically adds an RSS button to your footer template.
  • Automatically adds an RSS Feeds link to your navbar template in the Quick Links drop-down menu.
  • Correctly shows where your visitors are when viewing the Who's Online page.
  • Forums can be specifically excluded from being listed.
  • Ability to specify which usergroup to use for permissions when viewing the list of forums.
  • "Link" forums can be turned off from showing.
  • All options are configured through the vBulletin ACP.
  • All descriptions and names are completely phrased so you can quickly add alternate lanquages or change the existing wording.
  • All display output is handled through vBulletin templates so you can quickly change the output appearance.
  • All templates and phrase are installed as a vBulletin product through your ACP which means there are no file edits!
  • Compatible with vBSEO.
  • Easy integration with vBadvanced CMPS.
  • Debug mode to help you with any problems you may be having.
Installation only take a few moments...
  • Unzip the .zip file that you downloaded.
  • Upload the single PHP file and single folder in the upload_to_your_forum_folder folder from the download to your forums folder.
  • Go into your ACP and select Plugins & Products => Manage Products => Add/Import Product => {Select the CinVin_vB_Forum_Feed_Listing.xml file from the download} => Import
You're all done! Just point your browser to http://www.yoursite.com/forums/cv_rss_feeds.php to view your new RSS feed listings.

DEMO #1: CinVin RSS Feeds (this is the 'stock' version)

DEMO #2: Cool Sci-Fi RSS Feeds (this one has been integrated with vBa CMPS)


FAQ's
- What vB versions? This should work with all versions of vB 3.6.x and above. It should also work with vB 3.5.x but I have not tested it on that version.

- Can I remove the "CinVin" text at the very bottom? NO! Believe it or not that little text is what allows us to work on hacks like this for free and, more importantly, to continue to support them. You are free to move the notice to your footer template, for example, if you would like to keep your notices all together but for removing it entirely a Branding Free license is available through CinVin.


Revisions
2.4.3
- Fixed issue if "Show Private Forums" is turned on in your ACP then private forums would have also been listed. As of 2.4.3 private forums will not be listed regardless of the ACP option.

2.4.2
- Fixed the "Excluded Forums" option for when multiple forums are selected.

2.4.1
- Fixed an uncached template (cv_ffl_rss_link_in_quicklinks).

2.4.0
- A new feature has been added to automatically add an "RSS Feeds" link to your navbar template in the Quick Links drop-down menu.
- All prior reported issue fixes are included.
- Version jump to 2.4.0

2.3.0
- A new feature has been added to automatically add an RSS button to your footer template as can be seen here at CinVin. The option is turned on by default and can be turned on or off in the ACP.
- Session ID variables have been removed from the cv_ffl_forum_link template as some older styles that were converted to the vB 3.6.x were having some issues.
- The method of including the vBadvanced CMPS file for CMPS 2.x & older has been changed. If you are using CMPS but not integrating the CinVin Forum Feed Listing with it then you may have seen an error at the top of the page.
- For those interested in removing the "CinVin" branding from the footer, the Branding Free License cost has been reduced.

2.2.1
- Private release

2.2.0
- Added new feature to show forums based upon a usergroup ID. The default value is now usergroup ID 1.
- Fixed 'Excluded Forums' option; was not working in all circumstances.
- Fixed display issue introduced in 2.1.1 for vBSEO users.
- Code cleanup.
2.1.1
- Fix for vBSEO users that were having an issue with no forums being listed.

1.x.x - 2.1.0
- Several new features, check your ACP.

1.0.2

- Strip HTML from forum descriptions
- Fixed forum link to go to forum display instead of external.php
- Added additional template (cf_ffl_forum_link) for forum links versus feed links
- Removed logic that would not show a forum if the forum was not listed on the forum jump menu

1.0.1
- Added WOL plugins

So the only thing that has changed is that vBSEO has been installed? In that case, did you turn the option for vBSEO rewrites? (ACP => vBulletin Options => CinVin Forum Feed Listing => vBSEO Installed)

Running the latest version of vBSEO (not sure what # they're up to)? I'll take a look when I'm back at the house tonight; unless you're running an older version of vBSEO with a newer version of the script, or vice versa, then it should be running as expected unless the vBSEO functions got renamed again. ... in which case, I'll check it out tonight.

I haven't forgotten... just haven't had a chance to re-install vBSEO to my test site yet. Hopefully this weekend.

I just installed this and set the permissions to view to registered users (2) but its only letting everyone, even me as an admin view the forums that unregistered users see. On every other forum it shows a blank page and yahoo says there is no rss feed there when I try it that way.

Just one minor suggestion: Maybe you should have the RSS to be text instead of an icon, and place the icon next to it. This will make finding the RSS link a lot easier for unfamiliar users and especially useful in larger forums.

Personally, when I go to any site, I hit Ctrl+f then type RSS to jump to the RSS link. The CinVin plug in will return nothing if you search for RSS using the Ctrl+f command.

Otherwise, great plug in and very easy to install!

KW802...

Not sure if you're aware of this, but for someone who uses W3C to validate their XHTML...it may be of some use.

If one enables the addition of the template name in comments via Admin CP > vBulletin Options > General settings...and goes to W3C to validate the XHTML code...they will find it doesn't validate. However, if you disable the template name in comments, it validates fine.

Here's the code when using this the template names in comments:


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

The above red text needs to be located outside the <a href> tag in order to be compliant.

Just a "heads up"...

In your last revision

2.4.3
- Fixed issue if "Show Private Forums" is turned on in your ACP then private forums would have also been listed. As of 2.4.3 private forums will not be listed regardless of the ACP option.
I just installed 2.4.3 and all my private forums are showing. I even left the setting to default for usergroup 1.
