XF 1.5 RSS Feeder tag question

Discussion in 'XenForo Questions and Support' started by Thomas Vollath, Oct 23, 2015.

  1. Here is an excerpt xml of a fictional YouTube channels videos:
    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <feed xmlns:yt="http://www.youtube.com/xml/schemas/2015" xmlns:media="http://search.yahoo.com/mrss/" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom">

    </entry>
    </feed>
    When setting up a new Feed in the Xenforo ACP you can access a few tags in the message template:
    {title} {content} {author} {link}

    My question is how can I parse other tags from the xml? I can parse {id} and a few others, but none of the tags with ":" in them work.

    What I am trying to achieve is to parse the "yt:videoId" in to a media=youtube bbcode like this:
    Code:
    [media=youtube]{yt:videoId}[/media]

    In general, parsing tags other than what's available by default would require custom development.
