Ey guys,

I heard some good things about nukeFEED now i wondered;
- is it possible to generate a feed for a seperate forum or a forum category with nukeFEED?

The reason im asking this is cause i want to output the topics from a certain forum/category on my homepage. Similar to a 'last 10 topics' -block.

Im already using a feedreader on my homepage, so if i have a feed from that forum/category i would already be done Smile But like to know before i install the nukeFEED mod.

Not sure how it will work on your own site as it's really intended for offsite reading, but you could create a feed with the following settings:

Content: Forums (Forums module must be active)
Order: recent
Level: category or forum
Level ID: (the unique ID of the category or forum)
# of items: 10

I tested it on a XAMPP (Windows) server and it did not work, but it does work here on this LAMP server.

Ey kguske thnx for your fast reply Cool
Our server is running Linux, so it might work/be possible if i understand you correctly?

Those variables (content, order, level, level id etc.) are probably assigned within the admin of nukeFEED right?

Well great to hear it's possible, i will give it a try asap and let you know about it.


Method is perhaps a bit strange but i already have an aggregator running, updated through a cronjob, so why not Razz


P.s. slightly offtopic, if you find some extra time could you reply at ravenphpscripts.com at that topic about those ' Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!', that would be greatly appreciated Wink

Okay, installed nukeFEED, installation went pretty smooth Smile
Quite a lot of folders in the 'include' section but guess they are all needed since they were located in the 'html' folder.

Tried to create a feed for my forum with the info you provided above but i get the same error as described here; Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

There seems to be a problem with the server, sorry for the inconvenience.

We should be back shortly.


With;
Content - Forums
Order - Recent
# of items - 10
Level - Forum (Category gives the same problem)
Level ID - 15 (one of my forums)


The only mod I installed is a 'prune (inactive) users' -mod, which i hardly use anyway and only required changes to the admin section.

Running; PHP-Nuke 7.9 patched 3.3

Feed for my News/Articles does work btw. If you need an overview of all my bbnuke tables let me know.

Any news on this one? I did find another solution for my 'problem' without using NukeFEED but I still like to use it to create a feed for our forums.

I just tried the exact same set up and it is working just fine for me. I'll leave my test feed up for a couple of days so that you can see it. I picked my HTML Newsletter category for my forums (http://montegoscripts.com).

I am not sure what could be causing yours not to work unless maybe you have a corrupted file? Maybe try to re-upload with FileZilla... possibly in binary mode if this is linux?

Not sure if you can compare RavenNuke with php-nuke 7.9 Razz but you guys probably know more about all the differences than me Cool

I never had any problems with a script/module/block before, usually they are zipped and I use winrar to unpack and winSCP to upload (yep server is running Linux).

This time i needed to install that 7-zip thingie, displayed no errors either.

What file is responsible for the Forums feed retreival or is there only 1 file for all modules? Cause the feed for normal News/Articles is just working fine.

It also seems that im not the only one with these problems, looking at an earlier thread; Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

And all of those issues talk about having made forum mods. I am not familiar with 7.9 as I refused long ago to use anything above 7.6. But, I doubt that it had forum mods. Have you made any mods? That is the only thing that I can think of because RavenNuke is just core BBtoNuke, no forum table mods.

I would check the SQL in includes/nukeSEO/content/Forums.php against your tables.

Wink

At least thats the only mod that added 'bb' -tables to the db.

But thnx for the tip;
I'll check 'includes/nukeSEO/content/Forums.php' and see if i can find some strange things.


Edit:
Hmm, now that i think of it. Some time ago before i did the backend work on our website, the owner updated bb2nuke. It could be that he forgot a version between the old and new since i sometimes get a SQL error (in forum admin) whenever I try to change the pass for a user, refering to a missing db table.

Could those 2 be related?

Any changes to your forum tables could very well be related. Wish you were running RavenNuke because you could just turn on the SQL logger and we'd find immediately where the problem is... Wink

Definitely review the SQL in that script against your current tables.

Late reply, as you probably read on ravenphpscripts I was busy cleaning up our db. Restored a couple of posts/topics + removed around 30 old tables from old mods and changes, yep feels great to have a cleaned up db again Laughing

Anyway I checked includes/nukeSEO/content/Forums.php and compared it to my db.

Those 4 tables are there; _bbtopics, _bbforums, _bbposts, _bbposts_text

+ all the fields from those tables called from forums.php seem to be there as well.


Hmm after a close look I see this line;

Code:
$bbtonukepath = 'modules/Forums/includes/';

if (!file_exists($bbtonukepath.'constants.php')) $bbtonukepath = 'includes/';


I dont have a 'includes/' folder in my 'modules/Forums/'

I DO have a constants.php in; root/includes/constants.php


I dont know if that function is just a fallback? My PHP knowledge is too small but if you could enlighten me Cool

In case it helps, I believe that version of nuke also had the 'karma' mod installed by default so this might have some bearing on the forum table structures. I also noted recently that the 'comments' code has changed and this also has some altered table structures (when compared to nuke 7.6/RavenNuke) to support those changes.

Yep Karma is installed, although i hardly use it. But the comments and karma have nothing to do with the forums as far as i know.

The feed for normal 'News' -articles is working fine Very Happy


Edit:
But is 'modules/Forums/includes/' default in RavenNuke/7.6 ?

Edit 2:
Hmm okay, I see the other path is there as well; $bbtonukepath = 'includes/' (stupid me) Embarassed

No, in RN there is no directory path modules/Forums/includes but I believe there may be in nuke 8.0/8.1 as FB decided to muck with things again.

In RN and pre *nuke 7.9 (to the best of my knowledge, constants.php is located in nukeroot/includes/

You are correct about 'karma' I just checked a DB from a site I migrated for a client and it only seems to affect the nuke_users table so my apologies if I led you astray with that one.
