I would like to filter imported rss feed items to only display ones that have images, can I do that?

Hi myoung456

That question leads to several more questions :)

In particular, what are you usign to import the RSS feeds? The Aggregator module? The Feeds module?

Aggregator, I tried messing with feeds but I don't get it.

I did some research on this, and I'm afraid I don't think it's possible with Aggregator.

Do you have control over the original RSS feed?

No, I can live with it this way. I just thought if there was an easy way to do it, I would.

Do you know the best way to format a facebook feed?
I'm using wallflux.com's atom feed for a facebook group 145155058994153 and then displaying on the home page at yourpages.us
it doesn't display the comments for each post underneath the post like it should. It also doesn't display posted pictures.
I can't use the facbook plugin because the feed is from a group, not a page (I have permission to use it).

Hi Michelle

Talk me through this set up a little.

You're using Wallflux.com to take an RSS feed from a Facebook page. You then pass it through the Aggregator module?

yes, you use the url it gives you as the url for aggregator feed

because it's a group fb page, I can't just use a regular facebook feed, nor can I use the facebook plugin to generate really nicely formatted code. Very frustrating!

I may just end up creating my own facebook page called My Town to match my website. I just wanted to use the feeds from two FB group pages. One is a classified ads page that I want to put on my classified ads page.

I hope this makes sense. Btw, I was able to make the FB feeds view on the home page using views I think.

Great, glad to hear you're making progress. Yes, I'm afraid that what you pull from Facebook will be limited. You're playing entirely within their restrictions.

I think I'm just going to use social stream.io
It'll take too long to figure this out otherwise
