A really nice feature I would like to see would be the ability to use the Joomla RSS feed icon as opposed to the default one or any icon you choose instead. That would be the icing on the cake.
You can upload an icon image file manually into the icons directory on your server and it will show up in the select list for the module display.
We will be adding a file uploader & manager to the next version to make this easier to do.
Or you can just use any icon you like, anywhere you like and just copy the url into a link around it.
i set up the feed, then after synidcating it to another one of my sites i notice a few spelling errors in my article, so I updated it thinking well it should show cross board on the feed.
well it did not. However, i don't think it is related to your component. So thanks a ton for a great and easy to use rss syndicator.
The problem you encountered was probably because of the Feed being cached.
It is cached according to the settings you define in the feed parameters to reduce the processing done by your site.
Serving a cached file is much quicker than generating it every time.
The downside is like you pointed out, the RSS content doesn't change until the cached version expires and the file regenerated.
To regenerate it yourself, just set the cache to 0, load the feed once, then reset it to the old amount.
I might add a regenerate button in a future version to simplify this.
I did set my Cache time to 0 and my site is setup for sef url, and this thing works without a hitch.
Thank you guys a bunch for your awesome work, as this will help to optimize my site even further.
Great to hear that you like it!
Would have gone for 5 stars if it had regexp or even keyword filtering on the articles.
Thanks for the filtering suggestion, you know you can exclude particular articles if you like don't you?
We would love to know what you meant by "regexp or even keyword filtering"
e.g. leave out all articles with those keywords in the title? or in the metadata keywords? or the content itself?
If you would like this feature in feel free to suggest it via our forum or the feedback tab to the left hand side on our site at http://ninjaforge.com
I gave it a break last night and when I got back to this today, the RSS feed is correct.
Maybe this was an issue with the cache time of 3600? Whatever, It works now!
Thanks for the great add-on.
Thanks for the feedback, we've sorted this issue with the latest bug squat release :-)
Downloaded older version of extension (v1.5.19d) and it works!! Currently the best free rss syndicate extension available for Joomla 1.5!
Sorry about this, we've sorted this issue with the latest release. You can download the latest release from JoomlaCode.
One thing that I wanna know, why in the title links I have "&" instead of "&"? Because of this my pages don't have right content because I need "Itemid"'s... But "Read more" links have normal "&". Why? Thanks.
This has now been fixed. It was because of incorrect encoding of HTML characters.
I have tested importing RSS feeds from BBC.co.uk and that works fine, did the exact same for the RSS feeds created by this component but it wouldnt' import, despite me doing the exact same thing.
Tried to import the demo data from the demo site, this also didn't work.
Perhaps its a configuration issues, would like to hear a solution
Can you please check the latest version. Up until recently there were some problems in the component generating invalid feeds, which might have caused your problems.
We have fixed this up now.
Maybe is good idea to add column for (re)order of the feeds and not order them only by name
Better late than never...
You can now sort by:
- Created Date
- Created Date reverse
- Modified Date
- Modified Date Reverse
- Front Page ordering
- Article Ordering
I'm not exactly sure why this issue arose, but I'd suggest you try out the new version of the component and module to see if it fixes the issue. Thanks for your feedback Dax.
I found this plugin very user friendly, but I have a question for the developers: how can I add the [...] to the end of the articles when I chose not to show full text?
Also, it seems that the option 'read more link' and 'add text to intro' do nothing...
Thanx for your attention.
This is a great idea! Thanks for the suggestion, we have encorporated this into the latest version! :-)
