ragtek's Global RSS/XML Feed - Not working?

#1
Hi All,

I have just installed this, but cannot get it working. I believe the addon is supposed to spit out an RSS feed to <xenforo root>/feeds/, but this isn't happening. Do I need to manually create the /feeds/ directory? The instructions did not tell me to. How do I specify what forums are used to generate the feed, again the instructions are very limited.

I'm also getting an error within the ragtek framework mod (prerequisite for some ragtek mods), when I click on "Show all ragtek addons" in AdminCP -> Tools, I get this:

Code:
Server Error
 
Invalid argument supplied for foreach()
 
    XenForo_Application::handlePhpError() in Ragtek/FW/Model/F.php at line 41
    Ragtek_FW_Model_F->_getNewestAddonVersion() in Ragtek/FW/Model/F.php at line 72
    Ragtek_FW_Model_F->getNewVersions() in Ragtek/FW/ControllerAdmin/Manage.php at line 31
    Ragtek_FW_ControllerAdmin_Manage->actionGetRagtekAddons() in XenForo/FrontController.php at line 310
    XenForo_FrontController->dispatch() in XenForo/FrontController.php at line 132
    XenForo_FrontController->run() in /home/hackslas/public_html/admin.php at line 13

Help?

It should show a feed at forum-url/feeds/global.rss. I.e. http://www.entropiaplanets.com/forums/feeds/global.rss (the /forums/ is part of the installation path of the forum).

You do not need to create a folder or specify any forums, as the feed will show you the feed for all forums you are allowed to see (IIRC).

And I receive the same error when checking the framework thingy. I do recall reading somewhere that Ragtek is looking into replacing the framework for this add-on, but cannot recall where I saw it.

HTH :)

yep

people didn't like the framework idea, so i had to remove it...

the global thread feed isn't located at <xenforo root>/feeds/ it's like schmitz said => feeds/global.rss

Thanks guys, still a bit confused though as I don't have a feeds directory? At what point is it automatically created? And how do I specify what forums to generate the global feed from?

I don't understand. Are you having a problem with ragtek's global feed addon?

Code:
Diagnostic information
 
HTTP request failure
 
Operation timed out after 20000 milliseconds with 0 bytes received
 
HTTP Transport:

And while trying to add in facebook fanpage via with RSS Grafitti Application got this error:
Code:

It appears that your reader is unable to make the HTTP connection to the feed. I am unable to access that feed with my browser:

www.sindhsalamat.com/feeds/global.rss

It just keeps loading and nothing happens. That explains the error message.

So the problem is that the feed isn't working. Ragtek's global feed was made for XenForo 1.0. It's possible it doesn't work in 1.1. But 1.1 has its own global feed now so I suggest you try using that.

Thanx jack......... but the problem is before xf, on vb feeds (http://domain.com/forum/external.ph...,38,39,45,49,52,53,57,59,64,69,72,75,86,90,96) were published with picture and preview of thread's 1st post and now feeds are published with only title of thread.... see the difference on picture below ...

Ok. XenForo's default global feed does not include excerpts from the thread. That is normal. Ragtek's old global feed addon includes excerpts but that addon is apparently not working for you. I don't have a solution for you other than ragtek's addon.

That's the same error as in the first post. Ideally you should contact ragtek about this. He isn't on this forum anymore, but he is on github:
