    The site needs to provide a url for you to use as a feed.

    Last question. Tweetchat/#gtchat doesn't have a rss icon, only my page does. How can I create a rss feed from the live chat to my site?

    Yes, it is a separate url. I found mine by just going to my twitter page and it had a link on the right hand side that said RSS Feed.

    Would it be a separate url? One that's formatted for rss? If so, how do I find it?

    Can anyone explain what's wrong? Also when I hit configure, nothing happens. Running 4.0.6

    Thank you in advanced.
    I just tried this with a twitter feed on my 4.0.6 test site and it worked just fine. Can you post the rss feed url?

    You could try this: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...ghlight=widget (It's horrible coded and not using any permission check, but it's working^^)

    I dont believe the calendar has RSS feeds -- its pretty much the same calendar since vb2 but with a fresh coat of paint slapped on it.

    I figured out what makes it run somehow you have to copy the RSS link of the calendar, but I dont know where that is.

    Any help on that? Also, thank you for your help so far!

    1. Make sure you know what layout you are using. If you aren't sure, go to the section where you want this look and click on the edit pencil. That will show you the section edit page, which specifies the layout.
    2. Find an RSS Feed you like, and note the url.
    3. Go to admincp > vbulletin cms > widgets > create new widget. Select "Rss" widget type. Give it a name and save.
    4. Configure the widget you just created. Enter the URL from step 2. Save.
    5. Go to admincp > vbulletin cms > layouts. Select the layout from step 1. Drag the widget onto one of the columns. Save.


    Your appearance will be slightly different from the page you reference, because they tweaked their template. If you would like to do that also there are a lot of references on how to adjust templates.

    Not to sound like an ass, but could you go through the steps w/ me on how exactly to get that setup? I am running 4.0.4.

    Thank you.

    started a topic [CMS] Does Anyone Know How They Did This?

    Does Anyone Know How They Did This?

    A Street Fighter site that I visit often has this calendar widget that shows upcoming (for that day) streams on their front page. I'm not an expert on this stuff, so I was wondering if anyone could walk me through how to get something basically exactly like this for mine.

    Here's a screen shot:


    Again, if anyone can walk me through the steps of getting this setup as is I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thank you!
