$displayForums=array(9); /* Define comma-delimited array of IDs of your forum(s). Topic data from these forum(s) will be displayed in the feed. To view forum ID, mouse over on forum's title in forum on the first page, and check out the data link saying "forum=...".IDs of forums to use in display */

So you could set it up as


where 9,10,11,12 etc. are your forums' IDs.

My rss feed isn't picking up posts as items. I believe I've configured it correctly. I worked through the config manual and I'm at a loss for where to start looking for the issue.

What are your settings under 'Some options' in rss2.php?

just $displayForums=array(9);

guess that's the problem -- what should that forum list look like?

just $displayForums=array(1, 2, 3, 4);

assuming the IDs for the forums are 1, 2, 3, 4?

Hi all,

Have managed to install the rss2 addon and its working - Thanks

Im just wondering if it is possible to display the author of the post through the feed.

Topic author name should be available in {$topic_poster_name} variable... so probably you need to insert this variable, for example, right after {$post_text} in the code of addon... f.e.:

{$post_text}<br>(by: {$topic_poster_name})

RSS addon

i put the rss update url into my feed reader and then posted some new topics on my message board.

but i dont see the new topics showing up on the feed reader??

how long does it take between for the new item to show up in the rss reader after it is posted to the forum?

depends on rss provider I think. yahoo seems to be faster than google, for example. it may take even few hours or so.

is there a way to adjust how fast (update interval) the updates are piped to the RSS readers?

Yes, rss crawlers need to have some time to find/update your rss - once they are updated for the firs time they should "come back" more often. I don't think there's a way to adjust it (unless you control rss programs ;).

There is no way to control RSS program... If you have set up RSS addon correctly, posts from forums are appearing in it immediately after creation. You can see it in any browser, if you point URL to it.

Example: click here -

I am getting odd symbols when displaying a pound sign? Any idea what this is?

It could probably because of the wrong encoding set... try to set up iso-8859-2 instead of iso-8859-1 for your forums and RSS.
