Authors words

The gfeedfetcher.js script has a built in Alert function.
I find it quite annoying and unnecassary.
The thing is that You get a popup if the feed contains errors. You have to click OK before You can do anything.
You dont need a blocking popup to see if there is a feed error which often is a single entry. The rest of the feed is shown anyway.
To removes this alert do this.
Open gfeedfetcher.js script
Find ad delete:

Code: Select all

if (thisfeed=="") //if error has occured fetching feed
      alert("Google Feed API Error: "+result.error.message)

Explanation

How to configure the script?
This:

Code: Select all

socialfeed.addFeed("USATODAY", "http://rssfeeds.usatoday.com/usatoday-NewsTopStories")
tells the name and link to the feed
This:

Code: Select all

socialfeed.displayoptions("label datetime snippet")
Label tells where the feed is from. Datetime tells which date the entry is created and snippet is the text.
This:

Code: Select all

socialfeed.filterfeed(10, "date")
tells how many entrys is shown and how they are sorted.

Sure, I can install the Mod for you ;)

Quick question folks... for this Mod to work correctly on my own forum, do I need to allow guests option for my forum? In other words I have Guests in my ACP set as No Access so would I need to enable that so the Mod / RSS can grab the forum post updates / new posts and stuff?

Hi cisco007,
Would you mind sharing the code you added to achieve the results you got? It looks great, except it seems the news has the wrong labels.

I have been trying all day, but I just can't get it to show. Yours is working as intended. But these I just can't get to show anything.
