  • Auto Populating Twitter and News Artcles - Help

    Hi all. I run a small sports fan board. In older versions, I had newspaper (or web)articles auto populate so that they could be easily read by the users, but I never had to do anything. It was an RSS feed or something. I don't recall exactly what,but how can I set that up? Also, I'd like to connect twitter to my board, so that it will auto refresh with new tweets from people continuously. Is this possible?

    You can import RSS Feeds and put them into specific forums in the AdminCP under RSS Feeds -> RSS Feeds Manager. They should be RSS 2.0 feeds, not ATOM feeds.

    There is currently no way to import Twitter. This would require custom coding. If Twitter provides HTML code to show a feed on a website, you might be able to create a Static HTML module and show the feed within that.
