Syntax for combining RSS feeds via RSS plugin?

posts: 43 United States

What's the correct syntax for combining RSS feeds using the RSS plugin? The PluginRSS page says at one point "You can also combine feeds by indicating 1+2, or 1+2+3 to add feeds together...", and later in the parameter table it says "list of IDs separated by comma".

I've tried:


The first two just display the first feed, and the last one just displays the last feed.

Yes, "show publish date" is enabled for all feeds.

Tiki version is 2.0.

in the code there is a line which says $id=explode("+",$id); i would say its '+'
of course

(06:46:57 PM) kiilo: for the code id=1+2+3 is the right way 
(06:47:07 PM) kiilo: just 
(06:48:24 PM) kiilo: ahhhh 
(06:49:02 PM) kiilo: try to increase max
(06:49:17 PM) kiilo: otherwise you just seee the first ten 
(06:49:34 PM) kiilo: ;-)
(06:50:31 PM) kiilo: so try

The presence or absence of the max parameter is not making a difference. Both give the same result: only the RSS feed of the first id # is displayed, including the feed title.

Just tried the same tests in a v3.1 test site, with the same result. frown

Did this work in a pre-2.x version, and get broken along the way?

Thanks to lphuberdeau for the information that the syntax has changed in v3.x and there is now only one RSS function.

Both {rss id=1:2:3} and {RSS(id=1:2:3)/} produce the exact same correct result when tested in a v3.1 site.
