Installed fine, but I keep getting .. "Unable to download the feed. "

Does that mean the php sockets isn't enabled on my host?
Yes. Are you running the newest version? Has support for two other methods to download feeds if your host supports it.

Which version are you using? Are you using the latest one posted 1.0.2?
Feeds with & in the url may cause problems.


Feeds that I use and work for me:

http://news.com.com/2547-1_3-0-20.xml

Google's RSS don't work with this for some reason.  I tried it when I first got it.  They need to have an XML Extension I believe.....and the google URL's don't.

sanax

Which of these ports will I need to get this mod to work because my server has a security risk with fsockopen

root@quest [/home/shamari/public_html]# php -m
[PHP Modules]
bcmath

mod has been updated and it now works however it continuously posts the same feed over and over.

sanax

Thanks, but which of these ports does your mod use in order for fsockopen to work? My host will open those I need right now. Then I don't have to worry about cURL...

vbgamer45

Ports? It just connects to a website on port 80 of the website.

Here is my host's reply:

QuoteIf I could, I would open whatever ports you need. I cannot open any ports on our shared servers for security reasons. What ports do you need to open using fsockopen ?


sanax

vb, I gave your mod link to my host and it seems to me it is enabled:

Here is his response:

"Well, the fsockopen php function is enabled, but you won't be able to access any non-standard ports using it. If you can find out which ports can be opened, I can run it by my superiors to see if there is anything I can do for you."

Hope that's all I need...

sanax

I'm trying to get to work now but I have a simple question. If I add a feed... what will the topic prefix be? Last time I installed the mod I typed in 'tmr' and that was all that showed up in the topics and my database froze on me...

vb, I left that prefix blank and I proceed!!... and it worked!! You're da man!!... one of the BEST mods right here!! Well done... let me just open a PayPal account! :)

well, i was able to get the blogger/blogspot feed to work after runnning it through my feedburner account and converting it to rss.  However, feedburner chokes on the flickr feed.

nolageek

Flickr works now too... sort of. the image url has "title" stuck in it, so I'm going to try without html tags.  just need to add another picture to my stream.

This is a fantastic Mod I have to say.. I just need to figure out how to work out a few kinks.  My biggest concert now is a) inline image tags and stray HTML.  I have problems with header (< h4>) tags on one feed... they come through but don't get processed... so the tags are stuck in the middle of the posts.  Will see if I can tweak anything to fix that.  Turning off HTML gets rid of all that, but then it's all clumped into one ugly paragraph.  We're so picky!

I'm also getting this error sometimes:

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class akismet in /home2/sexin/public_html/forum/Sources/Akismet.class.php on line 55

sanax

A last question from me. Is it possible to have the mod posts the topic only once and not twice as it is at the moment?
