One thing that is not made clear in the OP's post is that a feed url is different from the site you want to get the feeds from.

Let's take coindesk site for instance,
The website is: https://www.coindesk.com/
Feed url is: https://feeds.feedburner.com/CoinDesk

You will get errors when you put the website link instead.

How to get the feed url?
You can simply google it or from the page source of the site you want the feed from.
Use the CTRL+F keys and type rss. You will locate the code below in most websites:
<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="CoinDesk RSS Feed" href="https://feeds.feedburner.com/CoinDesk" />


Where the link after the href is the feed url. In the above example, https://feeds.feedburner.com/CoinDesk is the feed url for coindesk.
Hope people will not complain of errors any longer :)

Thanks yes there is always different url than the site url itself.

Hi guys,
I'm using your mod on my forum and our members love it. Im having a problem though. Lately, links posted in the articles coming across are showing up garbled and not clickable. Some are ok. Any idea what might be causing this?

Thanks

Would need to see the feed. It really depends on the html that is embeded in it.

I'm running feeds from 5 news sites.
Fox News, CNN, Breitbart, Judicial Watch, and GP.
You are welcome to check them out. If you need access to anything, just let me know. I would like to help.

I am not seeing any links in that content.
What settings do you have on the feed? are you trying to append a link to the story at the end of topic post?

My first post, the fox post, the source at the bottom would normally be a link.

I do have a question, in the settings for the mod, Do I need the "HTML enabled" checked? Not sure on that one.

You need it checked if the feed content has html inside it. Then will attempt to convert it.

Any idea what might cause a double post in one feed?

I added a new feed to my forum, and now each update gets double posted in one post.

Do you have the feed url that generated that post?

Update: I installed the new version and the doubling in each post seems to be fixed. Now the only problem I can see is thumbnails for things like LinkedIn, twitter, etc only show as blanks now. Not a biggie but looks odd.
