    Haven't tried this yet; is it possible to direct the blog posts to (create) discussions and/or direct all of them to a single named discussion instead of the user's profile page? Is that something you want to do at some point?

    Partly, I'm thinking the profile page is not the most visible place for this. OTOH, I suppose on a forum with 1000 members, one wouldn't want 1000 discussion threads created. Was this latter consideration a factor in choosing the profile page as a design point for the extension? Is my feature idea basically dumb? (Yes is an acceptable answer ..).

    Are you suggesting that there is a specific topic say 'bdudes blog posts' that has the latest posts? Well this extension is in a similar vein to the flickr and digg extensions in allowing users to extend their profile, to be able to say more about themselves in their profile, because that's what a profile is. At the moment, I don't think I'll code this however this is GPL so if anyone wants to do it, please do.

    When I enable it (this new version) and look at a user profile that has an RSS feed, I get this error:
    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class rsscache in /home/user/public_html/extensions/LatestBlog/magpierss-0.72/ on line 19

    I'm having some problems with the character encoding. In the previous version everything was alright.

    When I tried an RSS 2.0 feed from my wordpress blog, it wouldn't show any entries. However I tried the rss 0.92 feed from wordpress and it worked but with errors in the header: Notice: Undefined variable: output in /vanillapath/extensions/LatestBlog/default.php on line 79 I commented out lines 76 and 78 and it's working for me now. I should also mention that this add-on is missing a </ul> at the end. After the } on line 46 of default.php, I got it working with: $insert .= "</ul>"; Edit: Now the rss isn't working after adding a few other add-ons. I think there are too many add-ons trying to use magpie and only the first one to get there does it right while anything after dies.

    Yeah, that is a problem because magpie internally creates variables using the same name. when they should be using $this->cache = new Cache; or extending the class. Maybe we can get an RSS class internally in Vanilla?

    Any news on the character encoding problem? Or perhaps a pointer to how to fix it? Thanks for a useful and cool add-in!

    There is a closing "ul" missing in default.php. Add $insert .= "</li>\n"; below line 44. Btw. nice extension!
