Solved the rss feed poster error...!!!   w00t!!

Assuming you have no other errors in your SMF code..

Modify the sub-rss.php as follows:

Around about line: 356

Comment out   //  $rss2 = explode("\\r\\", $rssdata);

Insert:   $rss2 = explode("\r\n\r\n", $rssdata, 2);

That removes the headers correctly and it started working!

My issues aren't with any fsock I don't believe.  Just basic install issues noted on page 27 of this thread...

Just make sure your file are chmoded to 777 for the little while it takes to install..
My forum admin section.. go to packages.. then options..  make all files writable..
Once installed.. make minimum files writeable..

Weird, it's not letting me do it...  I am on IIS, but that doesn't seem to be the problem at this point.  It simply isn't accepting my LOCAL PATH TO SMF because of invalid syntax...

This isint working, i am now using the mod on 110mb...and have tried the above suggestion too. Could some one please edit Subs-Rss.php so that it only uses fopen or cURL as i think the script realisies the server doesent support fsockopen (which is true) then stops the script.

many thanks,

Dozzer

Is it possible to get repeated posts with the same subject put under the same topic like humans would do... ?

Eg: http://whatson.110mb.com/forum/gmapez-google-group-postings-b5.0/

As you can see I have multiple topics with same subject... bung em all into one ?

Also any news on a HTML to BBC code "fix" ?  eg:  HTML  imag code to [img][/img]

Ok. I finally got an email from the cron job.

/bin/sh: http://www.gstestsite.ezmnetwork.com/cronrss.php: No such file or directory

But it is there. Whats up with that?

EDIT: changed permissions from 666 to 755. Maybe that helps because its now showing Feed Poster Configuration

What am I supposed to see if I go to http://www.gstestsite.ezmnetwork.com/cronrss.php

I have the same problem as you... anybody found a solution to this?

Ranter

I had problems using this mod with URLs that contain arguments separated by characters like '?' or '&'. In order to disambiguate whether the problem was fetching the feed or parsing it I created a cron job that used wget to fetch an affected feed, saving the contents as an XML file on my server.  I then configured RSS Feed Poster to fetch the file from my local machine and it worked.

I'm using Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.0 and Apache 1.3.37.

I've left the cron job workaround in place, but it seems a problem does remain causing RSS Feed Poster to fail to retrieve certain valid URLs.

Did you try to use a URL with escaped characters for the ? and &.

I am fairly sure I've read every post in this thread, and yet somehow the answer isn't clear to me...

I'm installing this very useful mod on my site's forums, but have trouble at the point of install.  Here's what happens:

1 - I upload the package via the built-in packages manager.  Seems fine...
2 - Click on "APPLY MOD" from list of available packages.
3 - Get following box:

QuoteInstalling this package will perform the following actions:
   Type    Action    Description
1.    Execute Modification    ./Themes/default/languages/Modifications.english.php    Test successful
2.    Execute Modification    ./index.php    Test successful
3.    Execute Modification    ./Sources/Subs.php    Test successful
4.    Extract File    ./Sources/FeedPoster.php    
5.    Extract File    ./Sources/Subs-RSS.php    
6.    Extract File    ./cronrss.php    
7.    Extract File    ./Themes/default/FeedPoster.template.php    
8.    Extract File    ./Themes/default/languages/FeedPoster.english.php    
9.    Extract File    ./Themes/default/languages/FeedPoster.english-utf8.php    
10.    Execute Code    FeedPostersql.php

4 - It asks me if I want to install it anyway, so I go ahead and install it.
5 - Redirected to Forum Index
6 - No link for Feed Poster Configuration exists...

I'm on SMF 1.1.3
I've installed this successfully on other sites

Is there any permissions issues with this mod?  What should my files be set to?  R/W  or 755?

Thanks for any assistance in this matter...  If any other information is required, I'll be happy to post it.
Nobody can help me with this?  I've tried putting CHMOD777 and all that stuff, but still can't install the mod.  It's a shame too, since I could really benefit from it in my site's forums...

Firstly prior to installing or uninstalling mods or themes you should backup both your database and your files then go to ACP>Packages>Options and set Installation Options according to the details of your hosting...then set Cleanup Permissions so "All files are writeable" this should change the CHMOD of your files to 777 (or 775 if your hosting won't allow 777)...check that it has via ftp and then you will have sorted any file permissions issues out...if it hasn't worked you will have to alter your Installation Options settings as they are probably at fault...try it again until the files are made writeable.

Go to ACP>Server Settings and make sure that your forum language is set to English and not English utf8.

These points will probably resolve your problem but if not please post back and we'll move to another few things to try.

Awesome, got it installed.  Tricky figuring out what the issue was, so thanks for your help!  I kinda thought it was permissions related, and since I'm running on IIS I can't seem to use the permissions modifier in the ACL for Package Manager.  Had to reconfigure from the control panel back-end of my hosting service.

Again, thanks!

I have downloaded, unzipped, and uploaded the files that the package-info said to, and put them where it said to.
There is "FeedPostersql.php" that I didn't upload to my board because I don't know where to put it.
After it's all uploaded, where do I go on my Admin CP to set it up? My "Package Manager" doesn't work, so I am having to do it manually.
I am using SWF ver. 1.1.3.
Any help I can get would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Mickey

i m working with SMF 1.1.4

and has installed Rss feed poster

earlier it was working fine with me

but now i tried to add a rss feed

but it is encoutering errors when i tried to add a feed in a forum
Quote
XML error: not well-formed (invalid token) at line 1

this is the error message i get

please help me out of it

as this Mod is really important for me

thanks in advance

TrueSatan

 Often feeds aren't properly formed and throw such errors...this looks like such an occasion...it isn't the mod at fault but a problem in the feed itself.
