The bigger problem, that is causing your issue, is that the plugin don't support (ridiculous, imho, in 2k years...) UTF-8 :(

VB thanks for the excellent mod.
The only issue that I am having is, I have 8 feeds but only 3 actually post.

These feeds are from weather providers and they are beneficial to my area.

Here are the 3 that actually post.

http://rss.wunderground.com/auto/rss_full/FL/Panama_City.xml?units=english
http://rss.wunderground.com/auto/rss_full/FL/Pensacola.xml?units=english
http://rss.wunderground.com/auto/rss_full/FL/Okaloosa_Island.xml?units=english

Here are the five that do not post.

http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/xml/MIMATS.xml
http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/xml/TWDAT.xml
http://rss.wunderground.com/auto/rss_full/tropical/index.xml?basin=at
http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/xml/OFFNT4.xml
http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/index-at.xml

All settings are the same 360 check time and import 25
Feed Enable Checked
Html Enable Checked
Locked Topic Checked

I am stumped as to why the first 3 work and the other 5 don't.
Here is a link to the forum page.
http://www.panhandlepierfishing.com/forum/rss-feeds-(weather-warnings-etc-)/

Thanks for any insight on this.

For me has worked this:

Sources/Subs-RSS2.php

Code: [Select]
// Process the XML
$xml_parser = xml_parser_create("ISO-8859-1");

Replace with

Code: [Select]
// Process the XML
$xml_parser = xml_parser_create("UTF-8");

Ok, I think I'm really close on having this working well for me.  (SMF 2.0.2 forum)

1) If I access from a web browser:   http://forumname.com/forum/cronrss.php -- I get back "Feed Poster Configuration" -- and the feeds update.
2) If I use the "fake" cron job inside of SMF -- the feeds update.

WHAT ISN'T working right for me is setting up a REAL cron job.   I've tried both (and variants) of the following:

wget -q http://forumname.com/forum/cronrss.php

php -q /home/username/forumname.com/forum/cronrss.php



What I get then is something very weird -- I get back the html for the main login page to my forum...   (and of course, the RSS feeds don't update)...

Advice welcome...   I really want/need to get this working via a real cron job.   

q) Are there any other ways of "kicking off" the rss pull process?   

q) Why would I be getting the "login" HTML when I wget or php the "cronrss.php" file from within the server itself?

Inside the cronrss.php file
Add this after <?php
Code: [Select]
$ssi_guest_access = true;

Volia! That works!  -- Huge thanks! --- Now, Both the wget and php versions of a cron (a real cron) work fine with that addition...

I assume (ugh..) that I'm not otherwise compromising security of my site or adding guest access with it -- just that the script/PHP needed to be allowed to use the "guest" access.....



@Others:

For those wanting an RSS feed to "test" with -- that is of reasonable high volume -- here's two that I found -- I worked on getting my RSS stuff to work -- and these feeds provided me with plenty of "regular" updates.

The USGS has a "Earthquakes" in the last hour -- probably about 3-5 items come down each hour or so...

Earthquakes ATOM link -- http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/catalogs/1hour-M0.xml

And Wikipedia has a RSS feed of EVERY change made (warning, danger will robinson, danger, danger) -- but it's pretty much guaranteed to have an update every time it's hit....   easily 100 items or more -- so turn it on/off as you need to, or limit the downloads :)

Wikipedia Edits -- http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:RecentChanges&feed=atom

Almost there !

Some feeds have items that are "broke/missing" -- here's an example..   The SEC feed for "Apple" --

RSS Feed link:   http://www.sec.gov/cgi-bin/browse-edgar?action=getcompany&CIK=0000320193&type=&dateb=&owner=include&start=0&count=40&output=atom

Looking at the raw feed data -- there is a "link" for each item

But in "RSS Feed Poster 3.0.4" -- as it is posted into the forum, the link doesn't work -- it's there... but it points to just "http:" and stops there...

Example entry:
Code: [Select]
<entry>
<title>4  - Statement of changes in beneficial ownership of securities</title>
<link rel="alternate" type="text/html" href="http://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/320193/000118143112028878/0001181431-12-028878-index.htm"/>
<summary type="html">
 &lt;b&gt;Filed:&lt;/b&gt; 2012-05-09 &lt;b&gt;AccNo:&lt;/b&gt; 0001181431-12-028878 &lt;b&gt;Size:&lt;/b&gt; 23 KB
</summary>
<updated>2012-05-09T19:00:57-04:00</updated>
<category scheme="http://www.sec.gov/" label="form type" term="4"/>
<id>urn:tag:sec.gov,2008:accession-number=0001181431-12-028878</id>
</entry>

But the link for:  "http://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/320193/000118143112028878/0001181431-12-028878-index.htm" -- is just "http:"  -- in the post from the mod..

I using this mod in my forum: hxxp:forum.mikonews.tk/ [nonactive] . Unfortunately I think, than RSS Feed Poster unsupport UTF-8 - I get "?" instead polish characters. Example: hxxp:forum.mikonews.tk/aktualnosci/odbieraj-bezpatnie-ca-ofert-naziemnej-telewizji-cyfrowej!/ [nonactive] ; hxxp:forum.mikonews.tk/aktualnosci/skatowa-swoj-konkubin/ [nonactive]
Can you repair it?

{Make sure, first, that you are saying in the feed config, that you want more than 1 post to be pulled each time...  The system will not double-post -- it keeps a MD5 hash in the MySQL table of every post to make sure it doesn't double post -- so even if you say post 10 each time, if 9 of them have been posted before, it will post only the new 1, because there is no MD5 match to previous posts -- all my feeds say pull 15 posts -- I think that's the max}

You're not alone on that one.  I originally figured it was my complexity in scraping feeds, etc.   But it turns out I was wrong -- certain feeds, just as a straight RSS feed into the SMF Mod -- also dropped an item....   the symptom was that the missing item would get posted when the feed got it's "next" item -- but of course, that item was missing until the next one showed up, etc, etc....

I can't give you an exact solution...  and it certainly depends on your personal desire to get into the alternative "hack" (and it is a HUGE hack)...

But I've taken to Yahoo Pipes to do pre-processing of my RSS feeds before giving it to the SMF Mod.

For those feeds that are dropping a post,  the Yahoo Pipes tool lets me do a "reverse" of the feed - therefore what was the TOP of the feed is now the BOTTOM - and the drop no longer is an issue to me -- no, it's not a fix :)

Granted, there's a learning curve for yahoo pipes.   And the other issue is that the RSS SMF Mod doesn't like the & character in a URL link (Yahoo pipes RSS links always have a &) --so you also have to create a Tinyurl.com link to your Yahoo pipe...

so it ends up being...   RSS -> Yahoo Pipe -> TinyURL --- and the TinyURL is what goes in your feed configuration.

Now, of course, I'm hacking a fix to the symptom, instead of finding the original problem and fixing that -- but that's what my skill set is, and Pipes has my intrigue because of all the other stuff I can do with it.   I'm now "scraping" web pages of interest, and converting them to RSS feeds, that the SMF mod can pull in...   So otherwise, I wouldn't "just" be using Yahoo pipes to 'fix' this issue -- but in the case of my feeds, it was easy enough to toss in a pipe operative saying "reverse" -- and volia, the problem of the missing post went away for me.

I have enabled this MOD and enabled a feed but it does not seem to be importing all the data in the feed.   

Refer to the attached images.

The first image shows the feed that I have enabled.  It is setup to update every 5 minutes and to import 10 items each update. 
The second image shows that board that the feed is posting to.  From this image, you can see that it is importing 2 items every 6 hours. 

Can anyone suggest what could be causing this?
