By default vBulletin 3.6, 3.7, 3.8, 4.0, 4.1 and 4.2 can import RSS elements as threads and announcements.
This mod allows you to import them as messages as well!
It can be convenient for RSS with the important information which doesn't required to be discussed.

----------------------------------- REMARKS -----------------------------------

If the thread ID does not set, than the name of RSS feed will be the used as title of the topic.
If the topic still does not exist in the specified forum, it will be created with first item of RSS.
Practically all adjustments for display of RSS items as topics will influence on their display as posts.

Thanks for the update. I use the old version, can you give more info on "FIXED: DB error with merging posts" because I don't think I ever ran into it- was this just for posts made by the mod or all posts on the board?

Just wondering if its necessary to upgrade sooner than later...

This DB error can occur if you have enabled option "Merge many RSS items to one post".
So if you have not emails with this error - you don't need to upgrade.

Thanks.

Will probably save this upgrade then until I upgrade vBulletin since I'll have to redo the file edits anyway.

Stopped working after the upgrade to vbulletin 4.1.4, even after I re-did all of the file edits, and reinstalled.

Usually when a mod requires file edits it's not that the coder didn't do a good job, it's that the software wasn't written with any "hooks" in the necessary places- it's physically impossible to not make file edits sometimes.

Yes, it's not working even with the file edits, hopefully it will be updated, as the file edits are not dificult at all, but as it is, it isn't working anymore.
