The client only had to then add a news article to their site and it would update their site, rss, Facebook and twitter accounts in one hit!
That site was on Joomla 1.5............ unfortunately the new site I a, building for our company is in Joomla 1.6 and was soooooooo disappointed to find out this isn't compatible.
The sooner you make a 1.6 version the better as I cannot emphasize enough how good and how useful this extension is.
Unfortunately there don't appear to be any other free 1.6 compatible extensions available that do this job. I'm stuck really... there's certainly a niche in the directory here!
I wanted an RSS feed for just my site's news articles (which aren't shown on the frontpage) and this was exactly what I needed.
Although I couldn't easily locate any install/setup instructions, I found that I didn't need them.
unzip the install file, upload the com_ and mod_ zip files using Joomla and then go to Components in Joomla to configure the feed.
I then used the module to publish a RSS feed icon so my users could find the feed.
I like especially the build-in "button maker" where you can create your own RSS button (changing text and colours) without even leaving your back-end.
Initially I had a problem with defining what contents would appear in the feed. Some closer look at the settings, and two minutes of searching in the Ninja RSS help forum solved my problems.
Attention: If you are fiddling with your settings and you do not see a change in your browser window, set the "cache time" from 3600 seconds (default) to 0 or 1 second, this will help. At least in my case it solved the issue.
I give it four stars here (not five) because with some help-section the component and module would be even better.
Thanks for the kind words.
The next major version of Ninja RSS (2.0) will have support for various plugins, including different data sources, so we will start adding different extensions depending on demand.
Ninja RSS Syndicator is a superb extension that works like a charm, and support is excellent.
Great job NinjaForge! Thank you for share it with the community.
