You can add RSS to your module easily using the icmsFeed class and the RSS template included in system module. This is the way to do it:
$myFeed = new IcmsFeed ();
Properties have default values assigned upon creation of the object. Change as many values as you need, from none to all. The following is a list of properties and default values:
|$myFeed->title||Site title as defined in general preferences.|
|$myFeed->url||XOOPS_URL constant as defined in mainfile.php.|
|$myFeed->description||Site slogan as defined in general preferences.|
|$myFeed->language||_LANGCODE as defined in language/[your language]/global.php|
|$myFeed->charset||_CHARSET as defined in language/[your language]/global.php|
|$myFeed->pubDate||Defaults to 'now', formatted using _DATESTRING as defined in language/[your language]/global.php|
|$myFeed->category||Empty by default.|
|$myFeed->webMaster||Admin contact email as stated in general preferences.|
|$myFeed->generator||Defaults to XOOPS_VERSION constant.|
|$myFeed->image||Defaults to 'images/logo.gif'.|
|$myFeed->feeds||These are the contents of the feed. Defaults to an empty array.|
Fill your new icmsFeed object with the appropiate content. You have to populate the ->feeds property with a properly formatted array. The following is an example with just one news item.
$myFeed->feeds = array ( 'title' => 'Do androids dream with electric sheep?', 'link' => 'http://www.philipkdick.com', 'description' => 'Novel in which Blade Runner is based upon', 'pubDate' => 'Publication date here (optional)', 'guid' => 'unique identifier of the item (optional)', );
Just load your stuff into ->feeds array and you're done. Remember not to change key names in the array.
That's it. Welcome to your new RSS.
