Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files  

So I wanted to add an image link to each forum for its unique RSS feed. This would allow people to subscribe to their favorite forums with their favorite News Reader instead of email. It would always be up to date and accurate.

There are three steps to doing this.

First, I decided I needed a small plugin to determine if RSS was turned on within the forumdisplay template. Go to your plugin manager and add the following code to the "forumdisplay_start" plugin.


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Next we will be editing the forumdisplay template itself.

Find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

And replace with:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Finally the third step is to upload the attached image to represent your feed. If your site isn't set up to allow IE to view transparent backgrounds in PNG images, you will probably want to convert the image to a GIF format matted to your background.

It would take moving the HTML code to another section. Would have to look into it but there is no reason why you can't move the button whereever you want it.

Below is the actual code that displays the button and creates the link.

DO you have RSS Feeds turned on under vBulletin Options -> External Data Provider?
