Don't have lots of time and willing to pay for your services :)

If you added cache_builders/rss_topic_creator.php to your footer file, the RSS feed will update when your page footer is viewed and the "Feed Update Interval" timer expires.

You can view ubbt_TOPIC_FEEDS to see what is/is not happening. I believe that if you set LAST_BUILD to 0, the script force itself to run again.

If nothing is populating the database, you may have any of the following issues.
1/ Source feed is ATOM and not RSS 2.0.
2/ Source feed has an error in it.
3/ Source feed is empty.
4/ You are using a bad URL.
5/ You missed part of the directions within the rss_topic_creator.txt documentation.
6/ You have not set a User ID that the feeds should be posted by.
7/ You have not set a forum to put the feeds in to.
8/ Your "Format Of The Posts" is empty or incorrect.
9/ The Topic Feed is not enabled.

TIP: Create an RSS TEST FORUM so you can repete your feed fetches until you have them displaying exactly as you desire. Then you can easily delete the entire forum and all of your test posts in a single swoop of deleting that entire forum. You can also prune your tests with Control Panel > Prune Threads.

But first things first, watch your ubbt_TOPIC_FEEDS database to see if it is getting populated upon 1/ refreshing of a forum page with a footer (usually category page is easiest to do) 2/ setting LAST_BUILD to 0 to the feed in the database.
