Is there any way to make it so that all the RSS feed info is published into one Post? Then it just creates a new post the next time it gets the RSS Feed? Is this possible?
Thanks I luv the hack!!!

If you are using RSS feed from vBulletin forums then try to add "&fulldesc=1" to the end of the link.
For example:
http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/exter...s=1&fulldesc=1

Nice idea. It doesn't work properly on my site though.

I want to specify thread id's starting from 2722286 but the max that can be specified is 65535 so it is posting everything from all my feeds into one thread. Looking into the possibility of fixing this now though, if I get a fix I'll post it up in case anyone else has similar issues.

[edit 1]
I've changed the threadid field in the rssfeed table added by this product to an INT(11). I'll report back if this gets it working.

[edit 2]
Yup - that worked. I suggest you update the installation query in the XML to make the field an INT(11) instead so that it will work for people with larger forums/more threads than 65535
