  • RSS feed Title Template question

    I am using the rss feeds to populate a news section I have on my forum, like local, national, sports etc.

    The current way the RSS does this is as follows:

    Title Template: {feed:title}

    Body Template: {feed:description}


    On the URL link, I used parenthesis instead of brackets to show the code
    What I would like to do and cant figure out, is to have the Title Template be the link, so when someone goes to a post in the "National News" forum, it doesnt take them to a page deeper in my site, it opens a new window to the link of the original story.

    Can someone please tell me the correct code to put in the Title to make that happen?

    This is not supported as the "Title" is the title for the thread created in vBulletin and vBulletin automatically creates that link in the thread list.

      Thanks Wayne.

      How about this there any html I could use in the title that would make it a link?

      for instance, as a title of one of my forums, I have the following:

      <A HREF="/forum/chat/index.php" TARGET="_blank">CHAT ROOM</A>

      which takes users to a pop-up of the chat room.

      Is there a way to use that code in the template Im using for the RSS feeds, so that they do the same thing for each post...referencing the original article like this one does the chat?
