XML Item database as threads

    I'm looking to take this (massive) XML and push all <item> tags as threads via registered feeds.

    I would like to also take the <name> <description> etc and style (bold center etc) it in the text area.

    The purpose of this is to have discussion around particular content, this being "Items in a brand new massive online game" using Xenforo as the platform.

    Anyone have any words of wisdom about how to make this XML be pulled using the "registered feeds."

    Hmm, well trying to open that in Firefox gives an error about it not being well-formed, so if that's the case, it's not even valid XML...

    But as that's not a feed, you're likely to struggle with the feeds system - it's designed specifically to pick up RSS/Atom feeds and the kind of data that they include. You'd probably do better with a bespoke system.

    I believe the "not valid xml" is because of characters shown below, but I'm relatively ignorant about the feed process.

    Took out the weird character and put at. http://www.egyptianred.com/Discoveries/Items-Clean.xml

    Trion worlds released this at ftp.trionworlds.com and the discussion about it is here: http://forums.riftgame.com/showthread.php?118471-Site-and-App-Builders.-You-can-be-one-too.

    If anyone else has any input, it will be well received. Help push Xenforo to the hardcore gamers~
