Hi,

Is this capability disabled ? if not how to configure automatic
message generation based on RSS feed ?

RSS is now a plugin, as such should be available from the Find Plugins link in your phpList admin plugins page.

To assist the finding of this plugin, here's the latest link to a ZIP file on github.

Once you have downloaded the zip, unpack it and upload the rssmanager file and directory into your admin/plugins directory, refresh the plugins page, enable the RSSManager and set it up as you wish at the bottom of the Config>Settings page.

Latest phpList version is now 3.0.12 (3 February 2015) and requires a minimum of MySQL 5.0 and PHP 5.3.x

Hello,
I installed the plugin and activated it.
RSS campaign was sent fine in a test run.
I would like your advise on following:
1. Subscription page editing asks for information for RSS manager - which options to offer, but always show all three, how do I change that to show only one option ?
what is the reason to send RSS daily, weekly or monthly and not every second day?
Do I need to ask subscriber approval later if I want to change frequency to daily or weekly?
If there are no new items in RSS feed - campaign will not be sent - is this correct?

2. Could you please point me in the right direction to setup cron job to get RSS nightly
and send out campaigns?
Thank you
