Introduction

Social Web, Social Display

My RSS Reader is a component allowing to show in a Joomla page the feeds generated by the RSS sites you select. The number of RSS item you can add is teorically infinite. Categories is also supported for split up the RSS source based to different argument. The component check for new feeds at specific intervals of time configured by the administrator. The component can use two way for periodically check for new feeds. The best one, if you have the possibility, is to set a cronjob task for call a special URL, generated by the component itself, at specific intervals. Using this way you'll have always your feeds up to date automatically. Unfortunately not all hosting services make available cronjob since this feature could be very CPU consuming for the server. The second solution is to configure the component for generate a temporary special page checking for new feeds. When the guest user visit the feeds page the component verify if a new check must be executed and show a list of the RSS sites to check and an animated progress status of the operation. This dynamic checking use AJAX engine to perform the checks without slow down the page loading.

First important note: the component can extract the feeds info make available from the RSS source.Usually an administrator of a web site exporting RSS feeds can set the site for export the title of the post with the complete body, the title with only a part of the body or the title only. The feeds data exported by the web site based to the decision of the administrator, as explained before, will be the only data showed. There is no possibility for the component to extract more.

Second important note: If Joomla System Cache Plugin is enabled the component will not work well. The plugin cache the RSS check page that will be continuously showed until cache expire. If you experiment such problem check your cache plugin and, in case, disable it.


Nice, but needs updating.

Pros: Nice extension with the features it has.



Cons: Doesn't install in Joomla 2.5.14.

Owner's reply: Hi
Just tested the component under Joomla 2.5.14 and install worked well for me, no problem at all. I suggest to report the error you have into support forum.

Very good work! I would like to see some enchancement in the near future. One of the features I'd like to see is the rss feed image next to the news title.


I've used this in Joomla 1.5 and found it reliable and very easy to work with. But... please consider upgrading this component to Joomla 1.6. Thanks


This extension has potential, but the layout options are horrible and the way feeds are fetched is pretty bad (should be cron, but developer says in his forums he doesn't know how). Needs a lot of work, but at least it's free. I definitely wouldn't pay for it in its current state.


The main component is super simple to configure and ajax enabled. It would be nice if the module option was not a scrolling display but instead an ajax paginated version of the component (menu) results.



Thanks to the developer.


First, thanks for this extension, this is nice and good extension for joomla.

But, it's not full support for quick install packages. I install it with my yoo_quick_insatll_package (joomla 1.5.22) and it can't analyse any rss link, while it's very good with original joomla 1.5.22 package.


Excellent-

Months of hard labor and eventually I found the Perfect RSS component . Thank you developer. Great Job Done.



Works out of the box. In testing mode I really tried to push this component with 700 + feeds Worked like a charm, no hitch no glitch.



Thank you

I have been using this component for a few month now. All i can say is that is works like a charm.

There has been 1 update in the past months. And that was also very nice, the possibilty to disable the articletitle to go to th rss-spurce.



To bad to see the website is offline, was looking forward to more updates.

Hi I would like to say that this in fact is a good extension right up until we started to secure the joomla installation by password protecting the administrator directory.



For some reason, once you password protect the administrator directory as recommended by many joomla security documents, this module fails to load at all.



If this is resolved, I will happily review this a 5/5.


Excellent tool

So I eventually found this smart and nice tool. It's easy to install and easy to customize. It should fit evrybody's needs. For me it's the opportunity for showing two different styled news feeds.



Thank you for doing this good job and for sharing with us.

This module is useful for keep informed about exchange rate of a single currency to another specified currency. If your site is oriented only to a particular country and you want to keep informed your visitor regarding the exchange rate of your local currency to the target country currency your can set this module to show only this information. The module obtain the exchange rate from the Google Finance site. In add of the exchange rate the module become available also a very simple currency converter allowing to switch betwwen the two currecnies interested and calculate on real-time the conversion of a specific sum of money from one currencty to the other. This converter can be show or hide using the provided link inside the module. The exchange rate is loaded from the external site using AJAX when the main page is fully loaded. This for avoid to slow down the loading of the main page waiting the result from the external site. Another feature is to "store" the just loaded exchange rate into the user session params. This solution has been added to avoid to reload again the exchange rate every time the users visit the page where the module is present. Using the configuration settings is possible to set the time (in minuts) after passed the module must reload an updated exchange rate. Version 1.1.1 Updated the list of currencies managed. Version 1.1 Changed some part of the codes for have multiple instances of the module working on the same page. If you find a bug Please, report bugs to the author throught the support forum.

This plugin dynamically show a login panel in the center of the page and allow user to login from frontend without need to show login module in the page. This feature is very useful if you created a web site for a customer and want allow him to login in frontend for manually add article, news, pictures and so on. In a "commercial" web site is not very good to see a frontend login panel but if you don't want your customer to login through backend admin page you have to find a way for show frontend login module only in "special" conditions. There are many solutions for have this result but this plugin resolve the problem in a very simple way. The working is very simple. You need to choose a "login word" for use as param to add to the site url. This additional param will show the login panel. Examples of use Suppose that, for example, the login param word is 'login' you need to make as follow: In case of SEF active: http://www.yoursite.com/somepage/?login In case of SEF not active: http://www.yoursite.com/index.php?login (if no additional params are already present in the URL) http://www.yoursite.com/index.php?com_mycomponent&param1&login (if some additional params are already present in the URL)

Joomla natively manage one RSS feed and use, as feed title, the name of the menu associated with the feed source. The name of this menu, in most cases, is always "Home". This plugin allow to set a custom feed title and description independently from the menu name.
