I cannot get any RSS to work on my forum and I do not know why.
Hope you can help.

I got the latest CVS forums.php file under html\rss\.

I get a blank page when I surf to it.

What am I doing wrong?

A step by step woudl be nice.

I found this which discusses it, but has no real step by step:

www.cpgnuke.com/Forums...art=0.html

Thanks.

yourdomain.tld/rss/forums.php ... nothing else needs to be done for a full forum feed.

I put that file from the CVS in that place.

See it here:

www.methuenhighschool....forums.php

What next?

Which revision of rss/forums.php are you using? I think it shouldn't really matter but for your site 9.2.2.1 is supposed to be the failsafe one.

Is your 9.0.4.0 site only modified in the rss dir or in other places, too?

( offtopic: I'd seriously consider upgrading to 9.0.6.1 if I were you. The failsafe way for this is supposed to be to do an upgrade to 9.0.5.0 first, if I remember correctly.)

I tried that version 9.2.2.1 of the forums.php file and it behaves the same way.
Sad
I'll have to start working on upgrading I suppose since there seems to be no other way.

To be honest I don't think it's an issue of 9.0.4.0 against your hostingspecs. If it were you would have encountered other problems, too, since the rss/forums.php file is nothing special as far as I can see.

You could try enabling full debugging in config.php for a brief moment and
see what you get when visiting that page.

I'm in the config.php file, what would I edit to make full debug available?
Nothing in there looks like it woudl do it.

PHP:

# -- debug mode ------------------------------------------
# Alter the following value to activate debug mode, which
# will show debug messages to all users, instead of
# administrators
#
# Warning: Enabling debug mode is NOT recommended for
# production websites
#
# true = enabled
# false = disabled
#
# default: false
# --------------------------------------------------------
define('CPG_DEBUG', false);

EDIT:

But come to think of it: This type of debugging is shown only when footer.php is called, so it's no use here. Leave config.php alone.

Add the following code to rss/forums.php, log in as admin and visit the page. Maybe that will work.

PHP:

require (BASEDIR.'footer.php');

Weird.

1) I thought debug mode was at one point handled through the main settings in the user admin panels.

2) This does not exist in my config.php file.

I will add it and try it.

I added and changed the false to true to enable this, but my site does not behave different in any way.

I think I better just upgrade to the latest version.
I haven't messed with DragonFly in over a year since my site had been running just fine.

Now I want to update and provide some new functionality to my users.

I think I should go the route of upgrading.

True, editing config.php allows for showing debugging to all users. not really what we want here. i was confused for a minute, thinking that it would produce a different type of errormessages.

Did you once upgrade and didn't edit and upload the 9.0.4.0 config.php?

Perhaps.
I'm doing the upgrade right now.

Don't panic if your right blocks disappear. Just read the FAQ. And I still recommend going through 9.0.5 first. And DO BACK-UP first!

Why 9.0.5 first?
That is a major pain in the butt to have to upgrade twice.
Is it no go, or should I try 9.0.6 right from the get go?

there is NO reason to upgrade to 9.0.5 first
