RSS Injector available
« on: December 24, 2005, 04:04:48 PM »
Here's my Christmas present to the SMF community. http://www.stelesys.com/content/view/21/34/
This script will take an RSS feed and inject it into an SMF board as posts.
It's still somewhat crude, but it works.  Please let me know of any problems that you're having.  You can see it in action at http://www.cyvin.org under the "News" boards.

Cheers,

Jerry

Nice.  What versions of SMF does it work with?

I've tried it with 1.1rc2.  I can't say if it works on earlier versions.  If it doesn't, it should be a quick fix to get it to work.

Simple.  I took the 1.1RC1 and added 1.  Actually, I was lazy and looked at what this forum was running, since I assumed it was the latest, as mine is.  Anyway, ass/u/me, you get the point :)
I take it that 1.1RC2 is a closely guarded RC?

Well, I dloaded the code you linked to some time ago, noted it used some file I did not have so I deleted it with out thinking.  Later I figured it might be PEAR-XML, just went back to dload it again so I may tweak it to my use and cant find the link to the code again.  The one on the page seems to be broken in a way, for it goes on talking about your host, not the code.  Oh well guess I will have to build this idea by hand.

I'll give it a shot on RC2 tonight, but I would be suprised if it didn't work.

I'm really batting a thousand today.  Actually, the problem is joomla trying to be a little too helpful.  Anyhow, the link should work now.  Thanks for pointing it out to me.

Well I took it upon my self to write my own custom injector, only issue remaining is double posting, once I solve that, I will be letting it run for a day or two to be sure of no issues, then to a live site followed by thoughts of maybe letting it be released to the public.

Think you guys could whipe up something for birthdays and events and special occasions and new members. So that they each get a new post?
