Is synchornization of your forum to an RSS Feed a good idea?[ 3 votes ]

I would like to add another forum to my http://itdiscuss.org forum that synchronize with mailing lists, but this new forum I want to synchronize with an RSS Aggregator and make a forum out of the RSS aggregate.

I looked in the documentation for synchronization of a forum with an RSS feed and didn't see anything.

Is there a way to sync your forum with an RSS feed now? If not it seems like a great idea to me, and I hope you add it to FUDForum.

Very Happy

It's a great idea. I'm willing to help you to implement it, but will most definitely not do it all by myself. For example, if you contribute the RSS extraction and parsing code, I will add the code to insert the posts into a forum.

Are you game?

You haven't posted the line number. Anyway, you can just fix it and update the wiki page.

I don't see any obvious errors either. Maybe your feed doesn't have a "description" field.

I can load your feed without any errors. My PHP version is 5.2.8.

Nope. PHP4 is desupported and not worth the time and effort that would be required to retrofit a solution.
