gm-rss feed generator for Greymatter weblog software

This page has been added to allow people to download Gm-rss - version 2.1.0. I have updated the existing gm-rrs feed generator for Greymatter to also generate RSS 2.0 and Atom 0.3 feeds as well as the orginal RSS 1.0 feed.

Download the current version

Version 2.1.0 works with Greymatter versions 1.6.1 and 1.7.1 and later. You can download the latest gm-rss version 2.1.0 mod here:

Issues with gm-rss 2.0.0 and 2.1.0

If you need to implement this mod and do not have the perl modules XML::RSS, XML::Simple or XML::Atom::Simplefeed installed then its still possible to get this mod working by installing the three modules as local files. These are:

Copy each of these files to your web server, ideally to a non web accessible directory, if that is not possible then to the cgi-bin directory or to the directory where your greymatter cgi files are held.

Rename each file to have a .pm file extension. Change the file permissions with chmod to 644. Edit the file gm-rss.cgi. Find the line:

use XML::RSS

add a comment symbol in front of the line, as so:

#use XML::RSS

Now add a new line :-

require '/path to';

Do the same with the entry for:

use XML::Atom::Simplefeed

Now open the file and find the line:

use XML::Simple

And do the same modification to point at the local .pm file. Finally edit and locate the line:

use XML::Parser

And edit the line to use a require statement as above. That's it gm-rss version 2.0 should now work.
