Send to RSS

Several of my websites have android apps which are updated using RSS xml files.

Right now when I add content to the site, I do it in HTML format. Then copy the HTML code to a program called listgardenwin. I have to cut n paste the code, cut n paste the URL from the site, and cut n paste the title. Then when I have 4 or 5 posts, I tell it to publish. It uploads the xml files with the new additions to the xoops websites I have.

It would be nice if there was a "send to RSS" button. Click on it, and it would automatically update the xml file on the server.

I have "Show link for RSS feed" set to yes. But that takes you to a URL for backend.php and it doesn't allow you to specify an XML file or allow you to specify how many articles to display. It just contains the last 8 or 10 and doesn't add the image URL from the article.

Many android apps are using xml files now so maybe the RSS feed is something we can upgrade

I forgot to mention that both websites are using Publisher

Re: Send to RSS

You might try this module: https://github.com/mambax7/rss

This is still no officially released, but you might test it and see if it would address your issue....

Re: Send to RSS

I can see one problem with it. You should be able to specify the xml file

and in my case, I have different publisher clones for different topics and each one has a different xml file

I think it has to be xml and module specific

Re: Send to RSS

You could create different plugins for your clones, and maybe even for your individual topics.

Re: Send to RSS

It looks good. I'll read it in depth a later

But one thing I didn't see, and that I think it's necessary, is posting to a specific xml file in a subdir

There should be somewhere to indicate what xml file to post to
