About the Plugin

This plugin has just about everything you'd need for working with feeds in SMF, and has a TON of features including:

  • Unlimited Feeds
  • Post to any board on your site
  • Specify which user to post as
  • Single click enable/disable of any feed from the admin panel
  • Lock feed topics once posted
  • Require approval of feeds before publicly viewable (only if Post Moderation is enabled)
  • Prefix feed with any title (Ie: [FEED], [RSS], [NEWS], etc)
  • Retrieve full article (Regular Expression REQUIRED)
  • Find articles by keyword in the Title or Description
  • Specify number of items to import from each feed
  • Caching of feeds for faster performance in case the feed hasn't changed
  • Logging of posted feeds to avoid duplicates
  • Uses Scheduled Tasks to determine when to fetch feeds (you can set the frequency)
  • Log pruning - removes log entries that are 30 days old (this can be changed too)
  • Option to post all feed items into a single topic, instead of seperate topics
  • See how many items each feed as posted
  • Selectable image icons for feeds
  • Add a custom footer to each post for feeds
