Using a forum for news

Ive never found a solution for this depsite trying all sorts, including attempting to use data from external.php.

I want to use 1 forum for news. How could I go about extracting data from the the database?
Ideally I need to get
Post date, poster, title, message, number of comments, and if possible BBCode to be parsed.

The hard part I guess is parsing the BBCode.

vB v3.5.0.


I just found the vBExternal plugin and it works a treat!

Can you explain what it is you're doing? Are you feeding a forum with an RSS feed? Or are you consuming an RSS feed FROM a forum?

I'm curious, as I'm writing a lot of plugins to force forums to behave certain ways, and I'm also consuming my own RSS feeds for a custom home page. I'd like to swap techniques, but want to make sure I know what it is you're doing. The home page consumes feeds from various forums. The "Analysis and Opinion" forum is only visible to Staff Writers, but their posts get "attached" to Categories.
