Do you have a cron job running for the feed?

You have to check the box that says fake cron jobs, if you don't set up a cron script to call the update. Fake cron jobs are created roughly by people that visit your page causes the script to check time, instead of your server to check time.  So either setup a cron schedule for the rss feed, or check to fake cron job it... :)

Yes, I have that running too.  but I don't have that running rigth now

And still don't update the feed at all

I have feed link's and I do set it up...

MegaTinkerCoder

See if it updates when you manually go to...
http://www.YOUR_SITE_ADDRESS_HERE.com/forum/cronrss.php

If so then you need to cron that link using cron lynx or using one of the wget's or something...
wget -q -O - http://YOUR_SITE_ADDRESS_HERE/forum/cronrss.php

or whatever you prefer to do with your cron job...


If that doesn't update, then there is another problem...

Thank's, I have to manually update it by using that link you give me.

http://YOUR_SITE_ADDRESS_HERE/cronrss.php

I think I have to keep manually update the feeds

Mine cant even download the feed. Is there a manual way to insert a feed??

Shadow Queen

Hit this http://YOUR_SITE_ADDRESS_HERE/cronrss.php under Feed Poster Configuration

QuoteMine cant even download the feed.

Mine can't ether too

MegaTinkerCoder

you can put an iframe in your template ... if you get that in your newsfeed or something in your base template might work for you whenever someone vists your page...

[html]<iframe src="http://YOUR_SITE_ADDRESS_HERE/cronrss.php " width="1" height="1" />[/html]

note: this is another hack, the cron job when done correctly works best...

Check that the URL responds correctly from the server you are running your forum on. Login, and use wget to get the rss-feed manually. If it doesn't respond, then the problem is not the feedposter, but something else.

In regards to the urls from yahoo...

hxxp:us.rd.yahoo.com/dailynews/rss/search/Iraq/SIG=11v8tg3l9/*http%3A/ [nonactive]/news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20070417/wl_mideast_afp/iraq_14

What we need is a way to ignore the first half of the code while the following can vary: iraq/SIG=xxxxxxxxx/* can this be done through the sites "Auto convert url" feature or through the news feed poster?

vbgamer45

That does not appear to be a valid rss url

That link is all kinds of wrong... :)

I think the Yahoo-URL was just an example of an ugly URL in the content itself. That is another ongoing discussion in this thread, right?

Please forgive me, I have read through parts of the thread but just haven't the time to scan 27 pages. If it's been covered please point me to the post I preciate it!

Anyway, on to the problem....

PHP: 4.4.2-1build1
MySQL: 5.0.22-Debian

Link hxxp:www.symantec.com/enterprise/security_response/weblog/feeds/vulnerabilities_exploits.xml [nonactive]

is producing this in the posts..

Title....  Day One for Zero-Days â€" ISTR XI Vulnerability Trends

Body.... 

<p>As part of the process of compiling the data for Symantec’s <em>Internet Security Threat Report</em> (ISTR), we discuss which metrics are critical to defining trends in the threat landscape. We are constantly reassessing the validity of certain metrics and looking for opportunities to create new metrics. Our data collection capabilities have improved over the years with new acquisitions, new products, and new product features that allow us to track different types of data. It is a great benefit that Symantec is a company that has grown with the threat landscape. It is also a matter of internal policy with the ISTR team to rigorously question and debate the relevance and validity of what we’re reporting on. I’d like to take this opportunity to reflect a little bit on the process behind the creation of one of the new metrics for this report â€" zero-day vulnerabilities. <br />
<br />
ISTR, Volume XI gave me an interesting research project â€" find the number of zero-day vulnerabilities. This seems like a fairly straightforward task, but prior to being asked to perform it, there just wasn’t any data…yet!</p>

++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I am running running fake cron jobs but, I can easily create a real one if this is the problem child, in fact,  I'll likely create one when I get an opportunity to do so.

Again if I've missed anything in the readme's or there is something in the thread I've missed please gently point me in that direction.

Thanks

Currently it does not strip all html so that is the problem.

It looks like your problem may be with the way its handling html. You may want to disable html in the feeder settings for those types of posts, or contact the author and ask him to look at it... I am concerned that their is content encoding that escaping the html handling of this feed... I had similar problems that I ended up making minor modifications to my code... I wish the feeder posted the whole rss feed instead of a snippet, but I haven't had time to investigate that myself.

Hello

I have a problem when i run cronrss.php:

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class akismet in /home/xxxxx/public_html/Sources/Akismet.class.php on line 55

I search forum before this post and somebody said something about duplicate code in Post and Subs-Post.php...but i don't have any duplicated code.

Right now, i can update only one feed per request and only the first one in the list, even i have added 10 feeds.

I try to use fake cron from mod but it's crash my admin area

Any ideea why?

Thanks

Hi,

Not only can I not get this RSS mod to work properly (though feedburner says it's working" technically)  but I want to insert podcasts into this feed from the SMF forum. Does anyone know how to do that with this or another RSS mod? 

Sorry to put this here, but I"m having a hard time finding anything about this subject at all. I can get the RSS feed that I burn myself to give me a subscription to forum posts, but not to the mp3 files.
