BNS SMF Feeds

Plugin with multi-widget functionality that builds an SMF Forum RSS feed url by user option choices; and, displays a SMF forum feed.

How can I get support for this plugin?

Please note, support may be available on the WordPress Support forums; but, it may be faster to visit http://buynowshop.com/plugins/bns-smf-feeds/ and leave a comment with the issue you are experiencing.

Can I use this in more than one widget area?

Yes, this plugin has been made for multi-widget compatibility. Each instance of the widget will display, if wanted, differently than every other instance of the widget.

How can I style the plugin output?

The plugin uses a variation of the WordPress RSS Output that assigns several rss related classes, such as: rssSummary, rss-date, and rsswidget. A wrapping class of 'bns-smf-feeds' has also been added to the widget for more fine tuning.

How can I get the RSS feed url?

Once the widget is activated and placed into a widget ready area, there will be a standard RSS icon displayed beside the feed title. This icon will have the url anchored to it, simply click on it to subscribe to the feed directly.

How do I use the shortcode `bns_smf_feeds`; and, does it offer the same options as the widget?

Yes, the shortcode does offer the same options as the widget. Here is a list of these options with their defaults:

  • title = 'SMF Forum Feed'
  • smf_forum_url = 'http://www.simplemachines.org/community/' (this is an example only not the actual default)
  • smf_feed_type = 'rss2'
  • smf_sub_action = false (false displays news or recent topics; true displays recent posts)
  • smf_boards = '' (defaults to all)
  • smf_categories = '' (defaults all)
  • limit_count = '10'
  • show_date = false
  • show_summary = false
  • blank_window = false
  • feed_refresh = '43200' (value in seconds = 12 hours)
