Atom feed?

There is a block for dispalying a RSS feed alright, how about Atom?

kebax,

  If need be something can be created in PHP that will read the feed.
I've never used an Atom feed to know what is best atm but after searching the web I do see one possibility.
You can try the SimplePie plugin for the SMF 2.0.X branch that will allow the use of rss & atom feeds.
ref. http://simplepie.org/wiki/plugins/simplemachinesforum/rss_feeder

I believe it allows the content to be used via BBCode which can be used in a BBCode block type.

Let us know if it works or if you need further assistance.

Regards.

Thanks but it did not work. The newsfeed plugin was not willing to install, SMF complained that mod is either corrupted or incompatible.

After uploading it to your forum via the package manager you should navigate to the packages list and do the following:

  • Click on the advanced link
  • Enter 2.0 RC4 in the input field
  • Install the RSS/Atom Feed modification
  • Navigate to Modification Settings in your admin section
  • Opt RSS Feed modification
  • Opt Add Feed
  • Enter appropriate data in the input fields (including specific board to post in)
  • Also modify feed from scheduled tasks
  • Use board with feeds as news block on portal

I tested it and it seems to be working.
A more direct approach to running feeds in general is to create a PHP script, break the fetched data apart with DOM and then echo the data to be displayed.

Thanks again, I will try that. Although I already managed to code a simple PHP page that converts atom to rss via xsl.
