TheDisturbedOne,

I just tried to run the cronrss.php on your site and it looks like they don't have fsockopen set up on the server listed in your sig. Try setting your Feed download method for curl. Setting it for "All" should skip through to each method if it doesn't work but for some reason it looks like its not.

* Garou gives Smoky a wolfish grin.  ;)


Thanks. I will post here if it doesn't work.  Amazingly I am on a free host (and got the domain for free), but I also have 12 months of paid hosting which I don't use (I won it in a contest, but I can see the company going down anyday now).

Sorry for not wanting to sort through 62 pages to find this, but is this mod compatible with SMF 2.0 Beta 4?  It says it isn't on the mod page, but I figured I'd ask anyway.  I really need an RSS Injector for my forum.

Does not work for SMF 2.0 yet

dont know bout you vbgamer, but im having a few issues on some files for the beta, to get it going..  :P

@ shanksta13:

try a spring widget using a portal for the beta, might solve your issues for wanting a rss feeder temporary till it can be sorted..  :)

Have been trying all day to make feed poster work, but so far no success, just now I noticed that it is no longer supported, is there a recommendation for a similar package that will provide more or less the same function?

When I go though the installation process it seems to succeed, and I see a screen that appears to allow me to set up a feed once.  However when I navigate away from it I cannot get back to it when I try going though newsfeeds>settings menu selection.

When I check my error log I get the following

Apply Filter: Only show the error messages of this URL  http://exreps.com/Forums/index.php?action=admin
Apply Filter: Only show the errors with the same message
8: Undefined index: smfrssposter_admin
File: /home/exreps/public_html/Forums/Sources/Subs.php
Line: 2738


I took a look at line 2738 in Subs.php and did not find anyting that suggested a fix.

I think I need to get the admin screen working before I can attempt to get anything else working, all suggestions appreciated in advance

Mine still doesn't work.

Smoky "Rider" Blue

i will be starting to work on mine again.. as soon as i get a few clients squared with their sites..

as far as this mod goes, it is vbgamer's. he has it saying on the mod site, that its no longer supported, and therefore you should use at your own risk..

all the details can be found thru this thread to make it work, if you have gone thru them all, and its not working on your site, im not sure what to tell you, as i do not have access to your site.. and im not sure when i will be free to do so..

i will try to have my own rss feed poster for the beta, but at this time, again, this mod is vbgamers..

If you are looking for any sort of support on this mod I suggest try here http://pixelbypaint.com/beta/index.php

I guess that I am just puzzled at this point.  This looks like it might be a useful mod, and one that I might not be unwilling to shell out a few bucks for.

But it looks like after spending a year or so on it, the developer is walking away from it, and stranger still no one else seems to be interested in writing a compareable functionality.

In my case, I figured out a temporary work around getting to the admin config page, I installed one feed, and it loaded once. Later on I attempted to add a second feed, and it never loaded, the first feed contunutes to refuse to update.

At this point, "life is too short" is starting to kick in, am thinking my time is better spent looking around for other features that actually work, and that will add some zing to my system.

Jay, I have a request at the link below where I'm offering $$ for someone to build a NEW RSS Feed Mod, instead of trying to get this one to work. If you're also willing to offer $$, feel free to post it up. Maybe if enough of us are willing to offer some $$ someone will build it...

funny.. i thought i was supporting at least the working functions of this mod..

i am working on one for the beta, but vbgamer has not turned this one over to me as of yet, so..

again if you need help, you can dig thru this topic, or visit my site or pm me..

either way, im flexible..  ;)

I do not turn over any of my mods for various reasons.

no offense vbgamer..  :)

but if you arent supporting it, or upgrading it, wouldnt it be good to give it to someone that will appreciate it and update the mod??

and i have been asking of this from you for the last however month(s) and just now getting a response.

i am not trying to step on your toes, i have asked here, on this thread, via pm here and on your own site, with no response what so ever until now.   i do enjoy the mod and would love to see what it could offer in the future for smf.. and other mods that could use/benefit from it. you arent the only one that has this mod going, vbulletin, ipb, phpbb, and wordpress has this mod as well, just a matter of tinkering with it the right way. i theme for them so its just a little bit of effort for the rss poster.. but yet this mod isnt supported anymore.

all this is on you, as i have said, since i havent gotten a response, until now, is that i will create my own.. its taking me a minuet as i do have my fingers full with clients i do support on my site, but i am making progress.. would have been nice if we could have talked this over, but since you are still claiming the mod, i suggest to clear the "non support" message from the mod site, and do with this mod what you will.. i know you have a few that dont understand how to run it, i know the information as been written over and over, here, your site, mine and other places,  but unless someone helps out with this mod, or gives hints as to update etc., i see it dying.. and that is sad.

KahneFan, DirtRider, all the posters here on this thread, and well i could name almost my entire site members as well, we all want the mod to work.. i figured it out, and if i can lol.. i know most anyone else can too. ;)

please let everyone know your intentions for this mod.. will it live to see the beta, or do i plug away on mine?

sounds like a plan vbgamer, and i do wish you good luck..

now i will step back and let you support your mod..

mine is still in the works, so..  ;) laterz..

unless you want to see what all i have for it so far.. but then i'd have to make you a co mod author and im not too sure you would like that so.. but if in case, you know how to reach me..

I still won't provide any support for the modification I will just update. I do not have time nor energy to support mods but I prefer to create them.

Support I believe should come from the community since they are free. There is no way I could manage all the mods I have they are way too large

vb, I have the utmost respect for anyone offering a mod here, so please understand this is meant with no ill feelings, but these two statements are hard to put together. You like to offer mods, but not support them, and then don't like for people to take them over to make them work. Again, understand I mean nothing bad, just an observation.

Exactly people can use the modification. If they want support from me they should pay for it since that is the open source model. Otherwise the modification is as is and is supported by the community.

Understood. With that being the case, have you had a look at my Paid Thread? It's not much, but it's all I can offer right now.
