View Full Version : RSS feed question

03-22-2010, 10:26 PM
This may be an issue that can only be answered over at vBulletin's support sites but nobody has replied to my threads yet.

There's a specific file that vBulletin uses to outputs RSS feeds. I was hoping to figure out how to edit the file so that it looks like this...

At the moment, my feed looks like this:

I don't know how the feed of vbulletin looks like and maybe that applies also for others, so maybe showing the code increases your chances on replies.

I've attached the external.php to this post :) It's the file used to generate RSS feeds for vBulletin.

:D I'm not that surprised you didn't get much reply; this isn't trivial as the code has a rss part, but it does much more than building a feed!!
Anyway, the part that should interest you is from line 412 to 839.
I wonder if using a csv file and simplxml wouldn't be easier?

Yea, it is real confusing because it's not like other feeds where they line up the variables and use html code to separates the variables. vBulletin assigns the variables to one main variable and it all goes under one case and I guess that outputs the threads.
