  • RSS bug and "New posts" issue?

    Hi,

    When attempting to test a new Twitter mod yesterday, I put a new test article in our news section, and checked the RSS file. Much to my surprise, the new post did not show up there (two new threads posted earlier did).

    I manually launched some tasks, but nothing. Hoping things would solve themselves, I went to bed, but now, a brand new sparkling day arrived, but my post seems lost forever.

    When clicking the RSS button, the test-post is not listed. Are there any specifics I should be aware of when it comes to new threads and them being taken into consideration for the RSS feed from my site? Like is there a maximum amount of threads per hour that will make the cut, or does a thread needs to be a certain minimum amount of characters before it gets added?

    Url to my forum: http://www.afterworldforum.com
    The test-post is the twitterpost at/near the top of the frontpage
    The URL to the feed is: http://www.afterworldforum.com/forum....php?type=RSS2

    Thanks in advance

    I also came across another minor issue yesterday. When I click on the "New posts" fuction, and then click the icon where it takes me to the most recent post in the thread, in the title of my page, first, the title appears, then the Page indicator, and finally the name of the forum, which is how I changed things to be according to the following:

    (vbulletinsetup boards, link does not seem to be working at the moment, so the below is a copy/paste from my ShowThread template)

    Code:
    <title>$thread[title]<if condition="$pagenumber>1"> - <phrase 1="$pagenumber">$vbphrase[page_x]</phrase></if> - $foruminfo[title]</title>
    <meta name="description" content="$thread[title] is discussed at AfterWorldForum - $foruminfo[title]" />
    <meta name="keywords" content="$thread[title] $vboptions[keywords]" />
    $headinclude
    However, when I was viewing topics in a specific forum (Off Topic), I noticed that not only did it contain the above, but after the title of the sub forum, the postnumber was added to the post.

    I have since been unable to reproduce the error, but whenever it popped up, the urlbar contained the following:

    showthread.php?p=577#post577
    I've been trying to look into the ShowThread template, but came up blank. Could any one point me at a place to look in case it happens again? It looked sloppily, and I'd prefer fixing it once and for all.

    Thanks

    Only posts viewable by guests will be shown in the RSS feed. If you make a post in a forum that guests do not have access to (can view forum and can view content set to yes) than it won't be in the in RSS feed.

      One of the posts earlier was in the same forum. Sorry for not clarifying that.

      In the meantime, the test post did seem to have added itself to the RSS. Could you elaborate on whether this typically happens automatically, or if it is triggered by a scheduled task?

      Thanks
