  • Notifications from RSS Feed Manager are sent from wrong user id

    We have an RSS Feed Manager user id set up (with the user id Newsfeed. Whenever it posts to a forum the notification email that comes from the forum says it's from a different user. Sometimes it's from 'Guest' and sometimes it's from one of the other user IDs.

    As far as can see there is no link between the Newsfeed user id and the user id of whatever member the notification says posted the thread/topic.

    What's causing the problem and how do you fix it?

    I've not used the RSS feed manager so I'm not 100% sure I can help, but I'll try.
    Just curious, if you refresh the page, does the user change sometimes too?

      I've not tested that but I'll try it. I put a support ticket in and got this back.

      > URL: http://tracker.vbulletin.com/browse/VBV-13948
      > Project: vBulletin 5
      > Issue Type: Bug
      > Components: RSS Feeds
      > Affects Versions: 5.1.4
      > Environment: Linux/Apache
      > PHP 5.4.34-1 MySQL 5.5.38
      > Reporter: jdj
      > Priority: 10 - Minor
      > Fix For: 5.1.6
      >
      >
      > Immediately post upgrade from vB4.2.2PL1 to 5.1.3 the RSS feed manager randomly allocates the RSS feeds to different forums and posts as users other than the users listed in the RSS feed manager. When you go back and edit the forums listed in the RSS feed manager the RSS feeds then appear on the site under the correct user id as listed in the RSS feed manager, even though you don't change the user id entries in the RSS feed manager itself; i.e. changing the forums fixes the problem of which user id appears to be posting.
      > Once you have edited the forums and apparently fixed the problem the correct user id posts but the notifications from the forums are given as "Guest" so the forum does not appear to recognise which id is posting.

      In our case what we are seeing is not just notifications coming from "Guest" but email notifications telling us that the RSS Feed has posted but from a completely different named user id. We're on vBulletin 5.2.5.
