right, I get that part. I've seen that this works in 2.5.2 and thus it was 3.0.1 that "broke" things with yafi.  And I can live without categorizing my RSS news.

My other part of the issue I was having is this:

"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 did a little digging into your class.tx_yafi_ttnews_importer.php.

If I hard cord the storagePid on line 129 it sticks the articles in the proper place.

looking at tx_yafi_importer the value for importer_conf is as follows:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1" standalone="yes" ?>
        <sheet index="sDEF">
            <language index="lDEF">
                <field index="importType">
                    <value index="vDEF">0</value>
                <field index="storagePid">
                    <value index="vDEF">pages_17</value>
                <field index="archivePeriod">
                    <value index="vDEF">-6 months</value>
                <field index="options">
                    <value index="vDEF">6</value>
                <field index="cropSubheader">
                    <value index="vDEF">120</value>

So is it possible $this->conf['storagePid'] is being populate with pages_17 instead of 17?  And if so why is the storagePid value pages_17?

I can leave the value hardcoded to the pid I want and go about my work.  I just pity the fool that one day will have to debug my hack.
