I was having a problem importing an RSS feed with
Oliver Rowlands from this list suggested I try EXT: yafi.
I've run into a couple issues with it.
First issue is it looks as though it isn't entirely compatible with tt_news 3.0.1
When I go to "Create new feed importer configuration" I am not presented (screenshots) with the tt_news category windows as shown in the yafi Readme.
i've installed this extension on a site with tt_news 2.5 and the category selection box is shown. I installed it on three sites with tt_news 3.0 and they all do the same - no categories.
All Typo3 versions I'm using are 4.2.10.
The second problem I ran into is when I do an import it doesn't put the new tt_news records in the storage folder I configure. It puts them in PID 0 - the root of the website. This behaviour happens with tt_news 2.5 and 3.0.
I've read through the documentation for the extension three times now. It's very simple and well done. Was there perhaps a step left out? I looked at the yafi table in the database and the storage folder pid is set correctly for the record. Why would it not be putting it in the proper place.
I can live without being able to categorize records - having them shoved into PID 0 is a bit of a deal breaker.
at least it parses my RSS feed that the other extensions don't! ;-)
