      could u guys add rss to the website

    • #45772

      We are getting ready to up date the style for the forum and add a portal. I will let admin and mods know and see what they think.

      Me too..

      Absolutely please add an RSS.

      This is one of my favourite sites and I want to keep up to date.

      Cheers… Bucket

      I 3rd the idea of incorporating RSS into this site. Love the site and love RSS. They would go nicely together like chocolate and peanut butter – unless you have an allergy to either. Keep up the great work admins and mods!

      One unrelated question… do users have the ability to change the theme they see on a user by user basis? I’m not digging the black background. It hurts my eyes, but I know some like it and I would not want to ruin their experience.

      Thanks.

      It’s a good idea of implementing RSS in the forum. I already found an RSS Plugin forPHPBB3 but didn’t have the time to install it yet, because it takes some time.

      I disabled the board feature Override user style:Replaces user’s style with the default so everyone can use the style you like! You can change your board style in the User CP -> Board preferences -> Edit global settings -> My board style.

      Have a good time! πŸ˜‰

      Administator – you have fun, too. Don’t let administrating stress you out. Have fun with it and please don’t take anything personally. Great job and thanks!

      Haha I won’t stress myself out, but the RSS mod is now installed! πŸ˜‰ The RSS button is only available in the prosilver style, but when you just go to the url http://www.win2008workstation.com/forum/create_syndication.php you can create the newsfeed url too. The format of the feed (RSS2/Atom) can be adjusted in your User CP.

      N-joy this new feature! πŸ™‚

      Administrator – I’m lovin’ the RSS on my Blackberry via Viigo & Bloglines already. You rock! Your time installing that is much appreciated.

      Let me know which RSS feed mod you used and I will figure out how to get it into Graphite. I just installed a portal and gallery on my most used board. It took me a bit of interpretation since the creators of this style basiclly started from scratch.

      I installed the MOD Full Syndication Suite 1.0.RC1 (RSS/ATOM) from http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=70&t=544331

      Thanks in advance for your help! πŸ˜‰

      I have down loaded it and it does not look that bad. If you have all of the admin/includes and so on edited already then i will just build the template/overallheader.html button and test the code.

      I will not have time till this weekend or next week.

      Hi Triel, I edited all files according to the install.xml. I guess it’s needed to copy and edit the following files to the new style:

      Edited files:
      styles/prosilver/template/overall_header.html
      styles/prosilver/template/ucp_prefs_personal.html

      Files included in the package:
      root/styles/prosilver/template/syndication_body.html
      root/styles/prosilver/template/syndication_rss2.html
      root/styles/prosilver/template/syndication_atom.html

      Don’t know how much work this is, but don’t hurry, people can also just use these urls:

      Yeah, I just did not like the way it did not center in the Graphite style. Has to have something to do with the way they coded it. I installed a Gallery on my LOTR board and found I have still not got the “gallery_notify” function to work correctly. The function will not route you to the gallery when a new images is uploaded. It also has to do with the way the code was written.

      I will figure it out though!
