Extension for Latest Blog Posts

edited August 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I've looked in the Addons directory and can't find this, I'm looking for an extension that will let a user enter in the RSS feed for their blog, and have their latest posts appear in their profile


  • i do not think that this add-on exists [yet]. i would imagine that it would be rather easy to modify an existing one that accomplishes a smiliar task. for example, you might find the and/or add-ons to be helpful.
  • Thanks. I've decided to try and write my own extension based on the Digg extension, so let's see how that goes.

    I managed to get this working. Yay!

    Download @ Lussumo

    At the moment this will only work for RSS streams though.
  • Try IE. I had the same error in FireFox, but it worked OK in IE.

    Thanks for the nice utility :)
  • I can't seem to get the myspace rss feed to work for some reason. (Iknow, I know, but there are a few users on my site that use myspace just for their blog, and want to have the feed in their profile on my site). Everytime I try to add a myspace feed to the account page, I get a repeated error:

    Notice: Undefined offset: 1 in /home/httpd/vhosts/ on line 166

    All other feeds seem to work (dooce, digg, etc..) Any ideas why it would be throwing this error?

    [Forgive the lateness of my reply]

    I believe that this is because the parser will only support RSS feeds (not atom), I'll hopefully fix this sometime soon

    Also, this is now available to download @ Lussumo
  • same error for me:
    Notice: Undefined offset: 1 in /homepages/15/d83103864/htdocs/ on line 166 Notice: Undefined variable: toInsert in /homepages/15/d83103864/htdocs/ on line 60
  • The link on the myspace blogs indicate that they are rss feeds, but it may be just (another) myspace effup. Thanks for the help and utility.
  • I just tried it with the myspace rss feed and it didn't work, however it worked with other feeds I tried, I honestly don't know why. when I rewrite this with a different parser (For atom support) let's hope it works then.

  • For support, please now see this thread.
