NAME: RSS items as posts v0.6.2
DESCRIPTION: RSS items are added as the posts of the choosen topic.
AUTHOR and IDEA: zCarot (

--------------------------------- DESCRIPTION ---------------------------------

By default vBulletin 3.6, 3.7, 3.8, 4.0, 4.1 and 4.2 can import RSS elements as threads and announcements.
This mod allows you to import them as messages as well!
It can be convenient for RSS with the important information which doesn't required to be discussed.

----------------------------------- REMARKS -----------------------------------

If the thread ID does not set, than the name of RSS feed will be the used as title of the topic.
If the topic still does not exist in the specified forum, it will be created with first item of RSS.
Practically all adjustments for display of RSS items as topics will influence on their display as posts.

M.C. and all others, please, recheck the installation steps, because there found some mistakes.

Any feedback from someone using this on vB 4.2. Could I see a link to a thread where it's in use?

Working for me on 4.2. PL2 - see here.

However, I can't seem to get the 'merge with old post' option to work. No error messages, it simply doesn't merge and always creates a new post, even within the time limit and when the last post was made by the same account. If anyone has any ideas what the solution might be, I'd love to hear from them!
