By chance, is the RSS feeder work off and on for some?   

It seems like some days, this thing works like a champ, other days, it doesn't.   My feed is: http://feeds.feedburner.com/monroenews/WPkp - I'm testing it on basic RSS feeders, which, the feed is working as it should.   They randomly seem to flow into my SMF RSS feeder though.   Today, all the RSS feeds came through, but still nothing in my SMF.   I've changed the "Scheduled Maintenance" time to every 5 mins., (previously set to 1 hr.), figuring maybe they would pop in.   That didn't do it.   Any ideas??
I have a similar problem,but I have to go reenable them.

I might have to take a look at the cache time on the feeds... and adjust how they're cached...

Are the feeds being disabled at all, or just not pulling any data?  Got a specific link to a feed?

I would like to use this mod to grab rss feeds from wordpress to post onto my forum
and I have 2 questions
1. If a post on wordpress is made a by a certain user can I choose which account can it post in smf?(for example there are 2 wordpress authors and they both make different posts... will it only post under one certain account in smf?)
2. My version of SMF is 1.1.10 if I update to 2.0 will it affect any of my mods installed?

I don't seem to be getting anything from this RSS feed: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/npcguild/rss?type=events

I get stuff from my other feed, but this one does nothing.

I'm not clued up on RSS, so am I missing something? Is this RSS valid with this mod? It looks exactly the same as the other RSS feed to me in terms of format.

1) Each feed can only post as one SMF member

2) You will lose all mods and will have to reinstall all of them.

That feed is empty... there's nothing to pull from it.

That's cause the event had passed by the time you read it. I'll post another one up later for more testing and post here if it doesn't work again.

I wonder why one of my rss feeds gets a date january 1. 1970? From where does this feeder picks ups it's date? Does it come form individual rss feed? Or from server? Or where?

It's bit funny that all the news from this specific rss feed are dated so old  :D

It gets the date from the feed... I'm not sure how SimplePie tries to normalize the dates on feeds, but if your feed is using a weird date display, then simplepie may just be returning zero, which is Jan 1, 1970 in Epoch time.

Is there anything for me to do to get the date fixed?

Date on the feed is like this
<pubDate>01 Sep 2009 18:59:16 .0000</pubDate>

And this is the feed, if you wanna look it... it's in finnish

It's because of that .0000 on the end of the date that's throwing it off.

Hey what does this mean - Regular ExpressionRequired if retrieving full article.  This must be  format.  The match is expected to be in second index of the array ([1]).

It says that if i want the full article.

And I do,but i have no idea what pcre means :(.

Hi All,

I just installed SMF 2.0 RC1.2 and uploaded the RSS Feeder mod via Packages -> Download Packages -> Upload Package.

When I browse packages it appears "Browse Packages" with only the ability to delete or list files.  Is RSS feeder not compatible with 2.0 RC1.2, or am I just missing on how to install? 

New to SMF and appreciate any help.

Thanks

At the bottom of your package manager, lower right corner, click 'Advanced' and change your version to 2.0 RC1, install the mod, then change it back to 2.0RC1.2

Just messed up a bit.  I no longer have the rss bit in the 'Modification' area.  I had a problem and needed to put a file back to before I installed this.  I now can not install it or reinstall it.  Also I need add a new feed, but can not do it.

Any advice??

Keith99 - You'll have to look at the manual parse instructions for the mod and add any missing parts to your install manually.

Ok, how easy is it to do? I guess I don't need to do it all, as it still works.  I think I need to add the /Themes/default/languages/Modifications.english.php bit?

Added that, but it didn't work?

Scrap that! It was the admin file oh well, cheers!
