RSS on Board Index V1.0 for YaBB 2.4

RSS on Board Index V1.0

Description:
----------------
This Mod will allow you to display RSS links for each board and category on the Board Index. To show RSS links for categories you need to check the box under Manage Categories, and the same thing for boards under Manage Boards - See screenshots. RSS links will only be displayed if you have permission to access the board.

Credits:
----------
Thanks to Mick (www.info4alien.de) for the German and German_Du translations.

Admin Center - Manage Categories:


Admin Center - Manage Boards:


Installation:
----------------
1) Modify YaBB files using BoardMod or manually.
2) Load modified files to your server in ASCII mode.
3) Upload boardrss.png to the default template directory in binary mode.

Note:
- If you are using the BoardViewers Mod, that needs to be installed before the BoardViewers Compatible Mod.
- If you install the BoardPass or Board Rules Mods, then they need to be installed in the following order:

BoardPass
Board Rules
RSS on Board Index

- I'd recommend backing up 'forum.controls' and 'forum.master' from your 'Boards' folder before playing around with these Mods.


Files to edit:
----------------

Hi,
I think, the Errors in Step 10 and 12 are because of
the Boardviewers-Mod (it changes the Search-String).
I tested Installation in a heavy modded Board, have
only the Errors in 10 and 12.

Edited:
German- and German_Du - Files attached. You can
add them to first Post-Package, Derek.

Thank you Mick!

I've added the language patches to the package. I've also added a BoardViewers Compatible Mod - BoardViewers needs to be installed first.

New Zip attached to the first post.

@ Francesco - I'm still not sure why you are having problems with those other two steps, I can't think of any other Mods that would affect it. If you still have problems, attach 'Admin/Settings_Advanced.pl' and 'Sources/BoardIndex.pl' here, and I'll have a look at them for you.

Thanks Francesco. You're welcome. Glad we got it working.

For everybody else's reference, it was the Who is Where Mod that was causing conflicts. I haven't got that Mod myself, so can't test, but Francesco tested the compatible mod file and has assured me that it is working. So for anyone who is using the WiW Mod, I have added two new mod files to the package.

BoardViewers and WiW need to be installed first.

I've updated the Zip in the first post.

I've changed what the mod file looks for in those two steps, so there's no need for the WiW compatible Mod now. I've also fixed a small markup error in the 2.1 template so it's xhtml valid.

0.2 attached to first post.

Thanks Mick, and you're very welcome.

It really is a very simple Mod though, everything was already there. All it basically does is add two new image links to the board index. It only does what the standard RSS button does, I just thought it was more obvious and convenient for members to use and choose.

I'm glad you like it and find it useful!

I've added two steps to this for ManageTemplates.pl so that the yabb tags don't display in Template Configuration.

0.3 attached to first post.

I think I can call this one done soon if nobody has any problems or suggestions...

Edited:
Added a patch for Carsten's Rolodex Mod to the package.

If anyone wants to use a different RSS image for this, you can download nice small ones in a whole range of colours from this site here:

http://www.feedicons.com/

Just rename the one that you want to use to 'boardrss.png' and overwrite the old one in your default images directory.

So what codec are you using for the videos? I really want to use this mod, but I can't get the videos in the zip file to play. Come to think of it, I can't get any of the video files I download from here to play, regardless of who creates them...

Widows Vista (and "you need a different OS" doesn't help) with Media Player.

  There are NO videos in any of the MOD files ....
the extension used with MOD files (.mod) is recognized on a windows computer as video files .. they are NOT.  The are actually text files that provide a script to edit the YaBB files to now include the modifications required to imbed the particular MOD into the forums operation.

Well, that explains that. Thanks!
