I’m having a few issues with embedding from RSS. I’m going to enable comments for each original post, but I want to ensure that the comments end up in the right location in Discourse with the correct attributed author and publishing date.
Issue 1: embed username key from feed
I need each topic to be correctly attributed to the right author. I’m set up as the default. My RSS has a format of
<discourseUsername>jo</discourseUsername>, so I entered
discourseUsername as the value for
embed username key from feed. It just attributes all topics to the default user. Have I done something wrong here?
Issue 2: pubdates
I need each topic’s timestamp to be the same as the original post publishing time. Otherwise adding our RSS feed of ~70 posts floods the forum with outdated topics that have recent timestamps. (Pushing newer manually-created topics down.) Is there a way to set the timestamp for topics pulled from RSS to the same time as the RSS
Issue 3: chronology
Maybe related to Issue 3, the topics imported via RSS are not in the same chronological order as the original posts.
I hope none of these are stupid questions! Any help, suggestions, or workarounds would be much appreciated!
