Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
I'm working on a phpBB forum and would like to be able to integrate RSS feeds into it. Let me explain...
1. I will create a new category in the admin panel titled "Latest News"
2. I would then like to add a number of rss feeds to this category. The feed title would appear as a new forum under this category, with the feed items appearing as topics.
writing the PHP is not a problem, however I would prefer not to spend the next day or 2 implementing this if there is already a solution available. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance

There are many PHP scripts available for RSS integration. I would suggest doing a quick google search to find some that may fit your needs best.
Hope this helps :)

thanks for the reply, however that particular example and most of the one's i've seen deal with publishing an rss feed of the latest topics. What i want to do is integrate an rss feed into the board so it appears to be a forum / topic list.
think i'm going to have to write this myself using a cron job / custom script to insert the rss items into the phpBB database.
if not, you should be able to use the phpBB template system to display the rss-feed's data within the standard forum design with not so much problems. they got loops over arrays etc. and this comes in handy for that task.
Think i'll have a dig through phpBB and find out more about how the forum's are displayed, in the meantime if anyone has any ideas for the points above i would be greatful
