NEAT!!
If it integrates with the search it will be a HUGE improvement. I bet it'll make search work a lot easier. Good thing you're always on the lookout for new improvements to DC, mouser!  :Thmbsup:

Hey mouser,
I have that RSS Injector code working in one of my forums - from a post at the SMF forum but I need to make it better.

I will be adding a method to pull from a RSSFeed database table and a method that makes  sure that duplicate posts aren't made.

I will let you know when its done if you're interested in putting up a news forums that pulls from different tech news feeds.

Its all ready if you want it.

Right now it:
- Uses SimplePie as the feed parser
- Pulls requested feeds from a DB table (feed url, board id, member id)
- Uses some very basic configuration settings in the php file to control the look of the post

Being used on this forum:

I posted thde code to:
http://www.veign.com...p?type=web&id=47

If you get a chance to test it please let me know if there are any improvements that should be made. (one thing I will be adding is a method that updates a date/time stamp of when a feed was last pulled).

That's great stuff veign!  I can definitely see using that on dc, just have to think about where to put it and how, and give you a few weeks to make sure it doesnt destroy your server  ;)

One suggestion:
most smf mods that have php scripts that add to a database table dont require that they be edited to provide password, but instead just include settings.php and make the call to an smf database access function, which i think makes sense.

for example:

Code: PHP [Select]
  1. include_once ("../Settings.php");
  2. $dbcon = mysql_connect($db_server, $db_user, $db_passwd);
  3. $result = mysql_query("CREATE TABLE `{$db_prefix}dc_blogentries` (itemid MEDIUMINT NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,PRIMARY KEY(itemid));");

I have already changed the code to have the DB settings removed.  Its a bit cleaner now. I still have to add the time/date stamp function at the end.

Any other suggestions are greatly appreciated.

PS: Great PHP highlighter script.  Will be looking at using that somewhere.
