RSS feed?

Does XOOPS provide an RSS feed function or module?

Thx

Re: RSS feed?

It is the Headlines module from the core. You should have it available for activation.

The webblog module also has an RSS feature.

Re: RSS feed?

Is it possible to add RSS feeds to other modules (that don't already have them) ? Is this difficult to do ?

Thanks

Re: RSS feed?

Easy way to do it is online at http://www.myrss.com. You could create a custom rss channel there, for example if you want to add a channel for your news, just enter the url to your news module there and myrss.com will create the pages for you to use to create your own rss page that you can add to your site.

The weblog has an rss file in it and you can get one for any module easily using myrss.com.

You could use the same rss image from the weblog to use in any module.

Take a look at the rss coding in the weblog module's files and you should be able to figure out how to add that feature to any module.

Re: RSS feed?

XOOPS has this function built in the core, although as a non-dev I can't tell you how to use this. But the XOOPS RSS feed is easily made: just point to www.yourxoopssite.net/backend.php which is an RSS feed

Re: RSS feed?

That's for the whole site though, isn't it Herko? Not for setting up individual feeds of certain parts of your XOOPS site?

No, just news.

Re: RSS feed?

Lykos Syndication module has feeds for reviews, downloads and links, but there are some issues with encoding at the moment.

Feeds for all core modules are in the works as well.
