    Hi there, I don't know if this is a error or is bad config in my XF installation. Thing is that I've using RSS Graffiti to push my forum RSS to Facebook but everytime a response is made on a topic it push again the content in my Facebook page.

    It seems that XenForo is actually using the last post date instead of the topic creation date. This means that RSS Graffiti thinks that something is new but it doesn't and submit the content every time. This is annoying because I have several updates on my Facebook page with the same topic, just because the date is wrong.

    My question is how can I set RSS feed to populate by topic creation date instead of last post date.

    Hi Jack, that works but only for the global rss. How can I do the same for each forum rss?

    Add the red code:

    		$threadFetchOptions = $fetchElements['options'] + array(
    			'perPage' => $threadsPerPage,
    			'page' => $page,
    			//'order' => $order,
    			'order' => ($this->_routeMatch->getResponseType() == 'rss' ? 'post_date' : $order),
    			'orderDirection' => $orderDirection
    RoyalRumble, AzzidReign and Rodolfo like this.

    Sorry for bump this but it seems to be a issue when the forum has sticky topics because in the RSS this topics are always all the way to the top and when a new topic appears it does under the sticky ones and the rss parser fetch all the elements again.

    There is a way to skip the sticky status in the RSS feed?

    Are you sure? I haven't been able to reproduce this behavior. Sticky threads are not always at the top of the feed on my forum.

    Yes, I'm sure. Anyway it seems to be a error of the parser and not xenforo.

    Is there any way to further limit the feed to only threads created within the past 24 hours?
