Mybb spy
This plugin will display the latest threads created by using the Syndication php.  It has it's limitation but this is first version. Hopefully as the RSS of mybb adds features so can I add things to this mod (such as author).

License is GNU/GPL attached inside extras folder.  

Plugin Name: Mybb Ajax RSS Spy
Plugin Author: Jesse Labrocca
Plugin Website:
Plugin Version: 1.0
Plugin Mybb Compatibility: 1.2
Plugin File Edits: None
Plugin File Uploads: 2
Plugin Description:  This adds an ajax rss spy to your site.

NOTE: For this to work properly in admincp "settings > Server and Optimization Options >Send No Cache Headers"  must be set to YES.  If you send cache headers the Spy may not refresh properly


1. Upload the 2 files from the zip


2. Login to your admincp and ACTIVATE the plugin (Ajax RSS Spy) in the plugin manager.

3. Edit admincp > settings > spy (should be last)
a. There are 2 settings. One is for the url to your syndication page. If you wish you can create a new rss (2.0) with only the forums you wish and the desired limit.  The other setting is seconds between checks.  Default is 10 seconds and I don't recommend it to be much can of course make it slower as well.

4. You can navigate to to view.

5. To add this to your template I suggest the "header" template.  You will need to add this manually as you see fit.  Future versions may do this automatically.

Demo :

I can be reached at either or as username LABROCCA

Thank you.

Hmmm, i think: :p

It's not important.

But thanks...
test this out
This is actually one of my favorite mods. It's so cool :p. Of course it's boring if your site doesn't have many people...
The name is a bit misleading. I thought it would be more spy-esque (i.e. reading people's private messages sort of thing).

Why would you want to read someones PM's? They are private for a reason...

Anyways, great work like usual Jesse! Wink

Admins should be able to view PM's to make sure their members aren't abusing the privilege! And that mod is available on the main mybb community board!
There are times when I need to read member PMs. Like I have a policy on most of my sites about PM spamming and/or advertising competing sites to my members. Also at times you have a popular site and someone tries to recruit from your member base to start their own forums. I don't allow such activity. If they want to start a new site they need to do it on their own and not use my server, site, and bandwidth to do it.

As for the title of this mod. It's just the common usage for this type of ajax code.
