RSS Feeds offer a great opportunity to subscribe to a website and getting notified of related news. With Burning Board 4.1 we're adding the ability to subscribe to RSS feeds and provide an automatic creation of corresponding threads.
The registered feeds will be fetched periodically, the system supports a minimum of 10 minutes up to once every 24 hours. It optionally allows you to filter feeds by specific keywords, for example you're fetching a news site and want to skip everything except for entries related to "sports". The threads will be created in the destination forum using the specified user and can be associated with a specific language, unless multilingualism is disabled.
In order to help you organizing the created threads, you can chose to close them automatically or to disable them, in the latter case every new thread requires approval from a moderator. Furthermore you can provide a list of tags which will be associated with the thread, helping you to create a logical connection between similar content and to tell these threads apart from other feeds.
