Not Supported Uses Plugins Code Changes  

New design for all the RSS Feed you apply to your forum.

Actually, inside vBulletin, you have:
  1. a rss feed inside a forum is used only to display small amount of text from the feed itself... having to click the thread title to see the small text of the feed is irrelevant.
  2. no capability to show the image attached to the feed is irrelevant too, as it's one of the gains we had lately with RSS2.
  3. having the RSS post have the dateline of the moment the cron will grab the info... this is irrelevant because the feed have to be fluid with its own feedline.

So now, we will see the feeds in a different way.

details of the changes:

1- Creation Date of Thread is now based on the original posting date of the feed itself. if the GMT is different, the creation date will be the moment when the cron grab the info.

2- The attached images of each feed can be retrieved on feed connection and inserted as a thumbnail for the thread.

3- Feed content is displayed in forumdisplay, instead of having to open the thread to read the comment. RSS Feeds are for insights, not for clicking all the way... so displaying the entire feed when you open the forum is better, and the display we use by default is similar to most of the News displays of these Feeds.


though this hack require that you edit 2 files to work properly, because it edit the core functions of the RSS Reader, which does not contain any hook for addons.
