  • Some documentation?


    I am about to start a new project which will make heavy use of RSS. Unfortunately, I see that there is no documentation for RSS either here, in Doxygen or in the code. Without at least some skimpy info, I fear I will have to resort to external classes due to time restraints. Is it possible to have at least some usage examples?

    thank you.
  • Setting Up RSS Feeds (3.8.6+)

    Inbound RSS

    Create or choose the class that will receive the RSS data. You should first look at the RSS import section to see the types of data that will come in.

    Next, create or choose the folder or other node that the RSS feed data will be stored under.

    Go to Setup > RSS > Incoming RSS Feed and create a new feed. You will assign the RSS data to the attributes of the class you chose, and select the destination folder. You will also give the URL of the feed the data will come from.

    Finally, set up a cron job to run runcronjobs. That is what goes out to the feed and brings in the data.

    Outbound RSS

    This is very similar to inbound. Choose the class or classes you'd like to use to populate the feed data, and the folder they will be located in. You may send data from more than one class on the same feed. Enter the URL you would like the feed delivered to. Finally, create a little image/link on your template with that URL.
  • Update Button

    After you enter the URL for the feed, click the update button.
  • RSS documentation

    Is there any documentation about the différences between the 1.0 and 2.0 RSS feed i've found in my 3.7.3 ez version ?
    I have a problem whith the dates : in feed version 1.0 i got no date at all in my rss feed, and in 2.0 feed version i got the "creation date" of the article in the xml field <pubdate>.
    As it's name tells us i should get the "publication date". Is it an ez bug or a problem in my datas ?
    Is there a solution to have the correct date in the rss feed ?
    • Re: RSS documentation

      This is EXACTLY my problem. When I chose 'From time', I get nothing, or the publish date. How to show the 'from time' for events with RSS?
