Developer Last Online: Nov 2015 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (17 votes - 4.88 average) Installs: 208
Released: 11 Feb 2009 Last Update: 17 Jun 2009 Downloads: 1101
Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files Re-usable Code Translations  

[ Older version can be found here ]

This nifty little utility will present a list of all of your forums RSS feeds on one page! Your users can then easily pick & choose which forums they want to subscribe to via RSS, Google, Yahoo, or Bloglines.

Ever go to a big site like CNN and view their page of RSS feeds that you can subscribe to? This is the same thing but for your vBulletin forums!

In addition to your users, the search engine spiders will love this!

We went out of our way to make sure that this CinVin vBulletin add-on was quick & easy to both install and modify!
  • Automatically adds an RSS button to your footer template.
  • Automatically adds an RSS Feeds link to your navbar template in the Quick Links drop-down menu.
  • Correctly shows where your visitors are when viewing the Who's Online page.
  • Forums can be specifically excluded from being listed.
  • Ability to specify which usergroup to use for permissions when viewing the list of forums.
  • "Link" forums can be turned off from showing.
  • All options are configured through the vBulletin ACP.
  • All descriptions and names are completely phrased so you can quickly add alternate lanquages or change the existing wording.
  • All display output is handled through vBulletin templates so you can quickly change the output appearance.
  • All templates and phrase are installed as a vBulletin product through your ACP which means there are no file edits!
  • Compatible with vBSEO.
  • Easy integration with vBadvanced CMPS.
  • Debug mode to help you with any problems you may be having.
Installation only take a few moments...
  • Unzip the .zip file that you downloaded.
  • Upload the single PHP file and single folder in the upload_to_your_forum_folder folder from the download to your forums folder.
  • Go into your ACP and select Plugins & Products => Manage Products => Add/Import Product => {Select the CinVin_vB_Forum_Feed_Listing.xml file from the download} => Import
You're all done! Just point your browser to http://www.yoursite.com/forums/cv_rss_feeds.php to view your new RSS feed listings.

DEMO #1: CinVin RSS Feeds (this is the 'stock' version)

DEMO #2: Cool Sci-Fi RSS Feeds (this one has been integrated with vBa CMPS)


FAQ's
- What vB versions? This should work with all versions of vB 3.6.x and above. It should also work with vB 3.5.x but I have not tested it on that version.

- Can I remove the "CinVin" text at the very bottom? NO! Believe it or not that little text is what allows us to work on hacks like this for free and, more importantly, to continue to support them. You are free to move the notice to your footer template, for example, if you would like to keep your notices all together but for removing it entirely a Branding Free license is available through CinVin.


Revisions
2.4.3
- Fixed issue if "Show Private Forums" is turned on in your ACP then private forums would have also been listed. As of 2.4.3 private forums will not be listed regardless of the ACP option.

2.4.2
- Fixed the "Excluded Forums" option for when multiple forums are selected.

2.4.1
- Fixed an uncached template (cv_ffl_rss_link_in_quicklinks).

2.4.0
- A new feature has been added to automatically add an "RSS Feeds" link to your navbar template in the Quick Links drop-down menu.
- All prior reported issue fixes are included.
- Version jump to 2.4.0

2.3.0
- A new feature has been added to automatically add an RSS button to your footer template as can be seen here at CinVin. The option is turned on by default and can be turned on or off in the ACP.
- Session ID variables have been removed from the cv_ffl_forum_link template as some older styles that were converted to the vB 3.6.x were having some issues.
- The method of including the vBadvanced CMPS file for CMPS 2.x & older has been changed. If you are using CMPS but not integrating the CinVin Forum Feed Listing with it then you may have seen an error at the top of the page.
- For those interested in removing the "CinVin" branding from the footer, the Branding Free License cost has been reduced.

2.2.1
- Private release

2.2.0
- Added new feature to show forums based upon a usergroup ID. The default value is now usergroup ID 1.
- Fixed 'Excluded Forums' option; was not working in all circumstances.
- Fixed display issue introduced in 2.1.1 for vBSEO users.
- Code cleanup.
2.1.1
- Fix for vBSEO users that were having an issue with no forums being listed.

1.x.x - 2.1.0
- Several new features, check your ACP.

1.0.2

- Strip HTML from forum descriptions
- Fixed forum link to go to forum display instead of external.php
- Added additional template (cf_ffl_forum_link) for forum links versus feed links
- Removed logic that would not show a forum if the forum was not listed on the forum jump menu

1.0.1
- Added WOL plugins

It *should* be working. Emphasis on *should* in there. If it isn't working, I give you full permission to hit me with a virtual trout.

Could you PM me with the URL of your site so I can take a look at the footer? A heavily modified template may not be happy with the auto-template code but I'll take a look to see if I can spot the problem.

Did you turn the option on in the ACP for vBSEO?

Whoops! I missed a template from being cached. If you're using the option to automatically add link to your Quick Links drop-down menu, then please download the current version (2.4.1) & re-import the product XML.

If you're running vBSEO, then turn on ACP => vBulletin Options => CinVin Forum Feed Listing => vBSEO Installed so that your forum links are parsed using vBSEO.
