Did you setup a cron job and point it to http://www.yourforum.com/cronrss.php

Or use the fake cron job option on the settings page of the Feed Poster

I did. I think is working now.  Thanx!

I noticed you had one blank post. I think I uploaded a fix to prevent that from happening so use that version now.

I'm sooo glad someone finally turned this into a mod. It works well.

2 errors in my log though when I try to add a feed.

http://xarchology.com/smf/index.php?action=feedsadmin;sa=addfeed2  
8: Undefined index: query
File: /home/.abigaildryer/xarcell/xarchology.com/smf/Sources/Subs-RSS.php

and

I also want to make a suggestion. Any chance you can add the option to allow the selection of the post icon per feed?

I also have a question. Does using the fake cron create a blank/empty post? Because I got one, but i really don't know what caused it.

Anyways, thanks vbgamer45. You make some of the best mod's.

EDIT: I see you fixed the blank post thingy already. thanks!

Mick.

One question tho'....  every time it updates and posts,does that count as a forum post?

It seems that it does. Any chance you can turn it off, or give us the option to disable post count for feeds.

Yes it does.

Wow. Im going to have 100,000 posts in a week. Hehehehhe....

i reloaded the mod. Im waiting for it to refresh and see if it'll post another dead link.

vbgamer45

Min time to refresh is 30 minutes.

I think already does not upgrade the post count if the user does not exist and is a guest.

'update_post_count' => (($feed['ID_MEMBER'] == 0) ? 0 : 1),

Unistall does not mess up feeds that are already installed. So you can reinstall safetly.

again how do you set it up so the post count overall does not increase or do we just re download it.

Is it disabled? Usally hosts disable it via php.ini and set a list of functions to disable.

Basically, it turns rss/xml news feeds into new topics on your forum. A new topic for each news item.

It makes it looks like someone posted a new topic. It also makes your site look alot more active. The way vbgamer45 set it up, it can even make it looks like your posting all the news about other things.

Some hosts disable it by default. You can enable it in your php.ini file within your php installation. In most cases, only your host has access to your php installation. So you will have to ask them.

what do you mean news about other things?  Do you mean other things other than what your forum is driven at?

Edited
How do i shut the posting counts for the mod off

Thank you
