This mod (which will be included as an extra in version 9) will allow you to display recent posts from your forum in other pages and even other websites using the Web Wiz Forums built in RSS Feed.

Just place the code below into any ASP page, on any website, where you want the recent posts to be displayed, it will then grab the most recent posts from your forums RSS Feed:-

<%


Dim objXMLHTTP        'MS XML Object
Dim objRSSFeedItem    'XML Feed Items
Dim sarryRSSFeedItem    'RSS Feed array
Dim strHTML        'HTML Table results
Dim strWebWizForumsURL    'Web Wiz Forums RSS Feed
Dim intTimeToLive    'Time to live in minutes


'Holds the URL to the Web Wiz Forums RSS Feed
strWebWizForumsURL = "http://forums.webwiz.net/RSS_topic_feed.asp"


'Time to live (how long the RSS Feed is cached in minutes)
'0 will reload immediately, but place more strain on the server if the page is called to often
intTimeToLive = 10

%>
<table class="tableBorder" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%">
 <tr class="tableLedger">
  <td><strong>Recent Forum Posts</strong></td>
 </tr><%

'If this is x minutes or the feed is not in the web servers memory then grab the feed
If DateDiff("n", Application("rssWebWizForumsUpdated"), Now()) >= intTimeToLive Then

  
    'Create MS XML object
    Set objXMLHTTP = Server.CreateObject("MSXML2.FreeThreadedDOMDocument")
   
    'Set the type of request HTTP Request
    objXMLHTTP.setProperty "ServerHTTPRequest", True
   
    'Disable Asyncronouse response
    objXMLHTTP.async = False
   
    'Load the Web Wiz Forums RSS Feed
    objXMLHTTP.Load(strWebWizForumsURL)
   
    'If there is an error display a message
    If objXMLHTTP.parseError.errorCode <> 0 Then Response.Write "<strong>Error:</strong> " & objXMLHTTP.parseError.reason
     
    'Create a new XML object containing the RSS Feed items
    Set objRSSFeedItem = objXMLHTTP.getElementsByTagName("item")
   
    'Loop through each of the XML RSS Feed items and place it in an HTML table
    For Each sarryRSSFeedItem In objRSSFeedItem
   
        'Web Wiz Forums RSS Feed Item childNodes
        '0 = title
        '1 = link
        '2 = description (post)
        '3 = pubDate
        '4 = guid (perminent link)
          
        strHTML = strHTML & " <tr class=""tableRow"">" & _
        vbCrLf & "  <td>" & _
        vbCrLf & "   <a href=""" & sarryRSSFeedItem.childNodes(1).text & """ title=""Posted: " & sarryRSSFeedItem.childNodes(3).text & """>" & sarryRSSFeedItem.childNodes(0).text & "</a>"
       
        'If you wish to display the entire post, uncomment the line below
        'strHTML = strHTML & vbCrLf & "   <br />" &  sarryRSSFeedItem.childNodes(2).text & "<br /><br />"
       
        strHTML = strHTML & vbCrLf & "  </td>"
       
    Next
   
    'Release the objects
    Set objXMLHTTP = Nothing
    Set objRSSFeedItem = Nothing
   
    'Stick the whole lot in a application array to boost performance
    Application.Lock
    Application("rssWebWizForumsContent") = strHTML
    Application("rssWebWizForumsUpdated") = Now()
    Application.UnLock
End If

'Display the Web Wiz Forums Posts in an HTML table
Response.Write(Application("rssWebWizForumsContent"))
%>
 </tr>
</table>

Change the URL in red to your own Web Wiz Forums RSS Feed.

The feed is cached and updates every 10 minutes to prevent strain on your server, but you can change this value to any you want, in minutes by changing the value in red.

This displays just the subjects as links to the actual post. If you wish to display the entire post, uncomment the line in blue.

This is not working for me, I changed the line in red but it's still displaying webwiz forums' RSS feed and not my forum's feed!

Same here!
Here's my test page, and I DID change the URL in the sample code above.
 
We have 8.06, or whatever the LATEST is, is there a problem in the code in the forum itself?

It will work with any version of Web Wiz Forums that has an RSS Feed.

Infact, this will work with almost any RSS Feed, not just a Web Wiz Forums RSS Feed. For example put in the BBC News RSS Feed URL and it would display that.

To reduce strain on the server it caches the feed for 10 minutes. Change the 'intTimeToLive = 10' number to 0 and it will force the server to reload it's cache.
