[Paid] RSS Feed Mod

I know there's an RSS feed mod which is currently being worked on, but I would like something different.

I can offer $20 $40, and if anyone else would like to pitch in, please offer. Once this mod is built, even though I'm offering $$ to have it built, I have no problem with it being a free public mod as well.

What I would like is to allow members to add 1 RSS feed to their profile. It might be good if admin could allow more than 1 in admin panel, but 1 is good for my application. Then there could be a link in their profile to something like "See feeds from this user" or something of that nature. When clicked it would show the content from said feed in pages of (##) 10(?) or so, with pages you could click through to see past content from their feed.

Also, on the menu bar I would like to have a link which would lead to a page which showed that last (##) 10(?) updated members feeds with maybe the last 3-5 or so titles from their feeds. OR, even if it just showed a single item each for each member would be OK as well.

So, this would really act different from the original mod completely in that users could enter their own feed to their own profile and it would post to a separate page within SMF rather than to a board.

I'm currently using Drupal to achieve this, but I would love to have this completely integrated with SMF if at all possible. I'd be happy to allow the mod author to have access to a sample Drupal site if it will be of any help.

The below feeds are all updated by the cron job every hour.

Here's a sample of how the feeds look when all coming together on my main page...

I could see how this would work on your forum ;)

Not sure if you're talking about IPYP, but I was actually thinking about using it for my poker forum. However, I could see how it would be pretty cool to allow IPYP members to add RSS feeds to their forums and you could see all forum updates at once. Good thought TDO :D


...if that is what you were talking about ?

Like one could put in the RSS feed and it would show the most recent posts on their forum.
