My b2evolution Version: 3.3.3

Hello all

I've been trying to find something similar to that used in Blogger and WP which lists some of the latest updated blogs that one reads. I found an old post by Yabba about an RSS reader, but that only applied to ver. 2.x and it's not really an RSS reader I'm after, it's something that could simply notify readers of newly-updated blogs on one's blogroll. By this I mean all external blogs, from whatever platform, not just B2 ones.

Does such a thing exist?

It would probably need to be based on RSS to work for any external source. The am_rss_reader plugin can be easily modified to work for 3.x.x and 4.x.x flavors of b2evo (it may work for 3.3.3 out of the box, I forget).

From there, it's just a matter of storing the date for the most recent post in the database and then occasionally checking the blog(s) for a more recent date.

Thanks BLC - I'll have a look at the am_rss_plugin, see what I can do.
