It would have to be done any time you would want to update the topics. But a cron job automatically calls that file.

see i'm baffled - until upgrading my SMF installation on Wednesday, the feed poster worked fine.  Now it will only work if I load cronrss.php.  Feed download method is set to all to avoid problems there.

Currently I have "use fake cron jobs" selected - what I don't understand is what this means exactly - is cronrss.php a fake cron job?  Do I need to specify a length of time in the crosrss.php?  Or do I need to create a separate file, and if so how do I script this?

Hi,

I have RSS Feed Poster set up on two separate sites, using the same web-host.

On one, I have subscribed to a feed that works:
http://rss.mnginteractive.com/live/MarinIJ/MarinIJ_1865105.xml    
(under NEWS FEEDS on http://www.wpn.org/SGV/sgvbb/index.php?board=9.0)

On the other I have subscribed to feeds that do NOT work:
http://news.google.com/news?q=SMART%20Rail%20Train&output=rss
http://news.google.com/news?q=Sonoma%20Marin%20Rail&output=rss    http://news.google.com/news?q=%22North%20Coast%20Rail%20Authority%22&output=rss
(under NEWS on http://www.wpn.org/SMARTquestions/index.php)

On the latter, I have "ALL" selected for the type of updating routine. However, the feeds will NOT update automatically. When I use the cronrss file, each feed appears to update, BUT I get LOTS of duplicates. I get nothing at all for output=atom.

Aside from the feed sources, the settings are the same in each case.

Running SMF v1.1.4 in each case.

Is there a way I can get auto-updated, non-duplicative Google news feeds?

Many thanks for any assistance!

~Louie.

Atom feeds are not supported. Only RSS feeds at the moment.

Does this have to be an XML feed, or can it be any feed in general? I have setup about 6 feeds on my forum [nofollow], but only 1 or 2 are working!

jepot5

is this a valid feed?

I installed the RSS Feed Poster, but I have 2 problems.

1 - I couldn't access the "cronrss.php" but changed chmod to 755 and now I can. The problem now is that the bot doesn't put the news automatically, appear only when I go to cronrss.php

2 - I'm Portuguese, and my site is in Portuguese whenever the bot puts a article characters like "ç", "á" became different.

How can I solve this two problems?

1.You need to setup a cron job.

2. Currently does not support Unicode characters.

1- Can you say me what is the code to put in cron job?

2- Can I do any change to support Unicode characters?

Hi VBGAMER,

I installed this last night and after about an hour it appeard to be working fine.
Then i added some more feeds up to a total of 20 feeds and it has now stopped.
I have disabled most of the feeds and now only have 3 feeds and also Curl is the only option enabled.

The last post was at 11.51pm last night and none since then. I had all feeds on 30mins with 1 item to update with each time - when i checked today nothing had been posted and that is up until now.

I have toyed with the settings a bit but nothing has been posted still - i am going to leve it alone now and see what happens but do you have any ideas why it might not be working?
I was running it from my live server but after it not working i tired to use 'Use fake Cron jobs. Checks if feeds need to be updated on each page load.' but still nothing?

Feeding into one post, instead of new post... I would like to have that option too!

You have to alter the database tables to utf8 and then it works
