I have thanked you already but ile say it again thankyou lol.

I have just added a rss feed but i put the wrong member to show who has posted the feeds so i had to delete the feed posts on my forum and i have now re added another feed but now its not reposting what i have deleted.

Also when it posts it says

A TORY councillor who defected from Labour was today suspended from his new party after making a homophobic comment on his Facebook website.

Source: [url=http://www.wirralnews.co.uk/wirral-news/local-wirral-news/2010/03/31/wirral-councillor-suspended-for-anti-gay-facebook-update-100252-26144094/]Wirral councillor suspended for 'anti-gay' Facebook update[/ url]

Instead of putting a link.

Well, that's expected behavior, it should try NOT to repost anything; there is a field in the database that holds the timestamp of the last time it "grabbed" the feed and it'll attempt not to repost anything before that timestamp.

You could try this query:
Code
UPDATE `your_db`.`prefix_TOPIC_FEEDS` SET `LAST_BUILD` = '0', `LAST_TOPIC_TIME` = '0' WHERE  `prefix_TOPIC_FEEDS`.`FEED_ID` =1;


As for the link, on what you posted it has a space before the end tag at the end, is that what it's doing on your site? could you link me to a story?

No i had to leave a space or it would of posted correctly lol.
Its just posting on my website like that instead of the proper link.

Also just tried that code above and it says SQL Error: Table 'web180-forum-2.prefix_TOPIC_FEEDS' doesn't exist

prefix_ needs to be changed to whatever your db prefix is

I need to see it... it should parse out regardless of your html setting... on my test forums the aggregator is a standard user account

Be sure you have "Parse BBCode in feed" selected in the feed

Is the source feed updating more than once a day? I know a lot of sites cache out their feed in the early morning and only do it once a day...

I don't receive any feeds. I added the lines in the source as described and added the files but nothing happens. Any idea how to check whether it is working right?

Hi Gizmo,

I installed it, but its not making any new posts.

I am trying to post earthquake updates from USGS. the feed is live, so at 15 minutes I should be seeing posts, but nothing.

Its now started working smile

Is there a way it can post some of the data from the source, rather than a link just to it? The link is good at the bottom, but I want some of the data on the post rather than just a link.

It's supposed to display data from the feed, could you provide me the URL so I can take a gander?

Well, your problem from your feed is that they're using the description tag to roll out the date versus providing data on the page itself; the description tag is what gets parsed by this script.

They should be using the pubdate variable to publish the date, and the description variable to provide data on the link.

Is it possible to tweak the scripts to parse the feed?

Also the atom feed just gets ignored..

http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/catalogs/7day-M2.5.xml

Its got more info showing and a map, but nothing happens frown

Its NASA as well, all the feeds we need frown

http://www.aus-city.com/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=52828&gonew=1#UNREAD

Shows a date as the topic and info frown


It won't work with any feed from NASA:

http://www.nasa.gov/rss/

Also there is a bug. Any posts made by the fetching, keep the date of where the source is. This means twitter never picks them up as they are old as my forum is UTC+11.

The posts need to have the current time and date just like they were posted by a person.

The RSS feed parses what it's supposed to; their feed displays data in a manner that isn't what the RSS spec says it should.

As for the ATOM feed, this script isn't designed to parse that at all... That's why it's politely ignored.

Basically it reads the title, description, and pubdate; description should hold data about the link, the title is the title of the story, and the pubdate should be the date associated with it.

You'd have to modify it to grab those tags versus rss tags... I really don't have the time currently to make a mod for that however...

I just reimaged my server to centos 6. I loaded up my backup and ubbthreads is working again. I had some directory permission issues.

Anyway the topic feeds has just stopped at the time of the backup. I checked the httpd logs, no errors.

Is there any files or directories that need 777 that the control panel check permissions is not picking up?

I can see this as the only cause.

I also cleared the cache in CP as the backup was full, all files and dir.

Thanks!

Hi Gizmo,

Yes I repatched:

/templates/default/footer.tpl
/templates/default/admin/admin_adminmenu.tmpl
/languages/english/admin/generic.php

Triple checked them, its correct as per v1.1 docs.

Hmm, I'm not sure; I just checked mine (the only file I have patched is the footer.tpl file, no cp changes) and it updated as it's supposed to here...

Do you have a link to the forum that's supposed to update and the feed it's supposed to read?

Hi Gizmo,

Okay its actually working, but nothing is being tweeted as all the RSS Feeds the forum generates have stopped.

Any ideas on that?

XML Parsing Error: XML or text declaration not at start of entity

But the file looks okay...

Fixed, its a ubbthreads bug. There is an added space in the rss feed template..

"{* Script Version 7.5.7 *} "

It should be:
"{* Script Version 7.5.7 *}"

That setting should be for outputting forum data as RSS feeds; the RSS Topic Creator imports RSS feeds to your forum from an RSS feed...

Yes that is correct wink

I thought it was the Topic Creator at fault as our twitter updates stopped. But as it turned out it was working, but the template in the update from ubbthreads has the extra space that was corrupting the RSS feeds, and hence no twitter updates from the forum.

I added the fault to the thread in ubbthreads/bugs, so it should be moved to a known bug and the template file fixed in the zip.

Do you think it may have something to do with the forum being installed on the site root or should that not make a difference?
