I have a question

feeds means basically content
and getting them into the forum using mod means copying it

correct me please if  am talking incorrect

I want to use this mod but I feel afraid that in future I should not have problems like I copied something that I has no right to.

if that were true, there would be no feeds.  typically it will have a brief description and a link to the source, hence citing the story.

ok means it is safe to use the mod

thanks so much

falguni1

where to find sites which give feeds

RRasco

i guess that depends on the feeds that you want.  google, "* feeds" where * indicates the desired topic.

What is in your XML file at line 1?
Did you check you rss feed with feedvalidator?

Thanks for the validator link nadglobtrotter. Ive been frustrated with this mod and http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/rss.xml for weeks.

Now I realize that its not a problem with the mod at all. Its just that the idiots that work for Blizzard Entertainment cant write decent code. LOL

TrueSatan

Unfortunately a great many RSS feed providers are little better than Blizzard in that regard...and as users of their output there's not much we can do to put it right....sympathies anyhow.

Hi, i have been using RSS for a while now with no errors but tonight when trying to access my forum i got this error:

2: fsockopen() [<a href='function.fsockopen'>function.fsockopen</a>]: unable to connect to www.gigwise.com:80 (Connection timed out)
File: /mounted-storage/home66b/sub004/sc40089-CCFO/www/forum/Sources/Subs-RSS.php
Line: 329Database Error: MySQL server has gone away
File: /mounted-storage/home66b/sub004/sc40089-CCFO/www/forum/Sources/Load.php
Line: 2005

There is obviously a problem with the feed but my forum is down. Any ideas how to get it sorted?

Thanks

You can try doing repair and optimization from your ACP or from phpMyAdmin or whatever your hosts have supplied...it can be caused by SQL errors that this should fix.

If the above doesn't help you appear to have a hosting problem...your hosting may be limiting your use of it and timing out. Perhaps if you contact your host they may be able to help.

I used rss from one site and all it had was links.

I dont want so much links can anyone tell me some rss feed which has very less links and more text matter.

TrueSatan

Look through the many offerings from http://www.syndic8.com/ and in particular the ones they recommend and you'll probably find something to your taste.

Thanks for your help. I manually uninstalled RSS feed poster and my forum is working fine. It appears the feed is coming from a site that is down.

Are there any plans to upgrade RSS Feed Poster for use with SMF 2.0?  I imagine this mod, much more than many others, might require massive reworking.

I find it very useful on my 1.1.4 sites.

vbgamer45

Yes I plan to update all my mods once SMF 2.0 final is released.

there is no rss there they have xml.

I want rss feeds with less links and more content.

TrueSatan

 Please look again! RSS is a lightweight xml format and that site is a huge directory of RSS and ATOM feeds.
