RSS feed for new images

Postby lukes » Mon Sep 22, 2008 4:35 pm

Hi all, hi Ulminia,

I wrote a simple extension to the Roster Gallery, perhaps you wan't to include it.
It's a rss feed with the newest ten images. (Could be made configurable of curse, but I hadn't time to dig into roster config stuff...) There are two feeds, one with the thumbs (default) and the other with full images:
http://roster.example.com/index.php?p=util-RosterGallery-rss
http://roster.example.com/index.php?p=u ... s&thumbs=0


If you want to try it out, just include the rss.php into addons/RosterGallery/, no modifications are needed. rss.php doesn't modify anything in the db, it only reads. There is one optional modification, that would be nice: To display the feed icon in most browsers, there should be a header linking to the feed. It's one line in addons/RosterGallery/index.php:
Code: Select all
<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" href="' . ROSTER_URL . 'index.php?p=util-RosterGallery-rss' . '" title="WoWRoster Gallery RSS feed">


Oh, and another question: What licence should I use to be compatible? I thought of the GPL or some CC...

Hope someone can use that.

Jakob

Oh, it seems I can't upload .php files? Hope I don't break no rules by renaming the file. :-) After download, please rename it to rss.php.

Not bad, but 2 minor bugs in the rss.php file.

Lines 32 & 33 should read:

Code: Select all
      $image = ROSTER_URL . "addons/RosterGallery/screenshots/" . $row['catagory'] . "/" . $row['file'] . "." . $row['ext'];
      $thumb = ROSTER_URL . "addons/RosterGallery/screenshots/thumbs" . "/" . $row['file'] . "-thumb." . $row['ext'];


You've hardcoded them to point to "http://roster.jl42.de/" instead of the ROSTER_URL bit. :-)

No probs, its what we're here for after all. To debug stuff an help each other out, hehe.

Have you tried MatM's new Screenshots roster addon, that works with the UniUploader (2.6.8) screenshot protocol? Might be worth a shot to update this plugin of yours to work with it as well perhaps.

I'll be looking into it myself but this weeks a no-go for me, am moving to a new flat in 5 days so got way too much stuff to sort out, lol. (So why am I sat here on the puter typing this, eesh get back to work Calystos!!! haha).

That shouldn't be no problem, someone might need to update the database queries, the rest should be quite the same.

But since I don't use the UniUploader: Is there somethig else that plugin can do, that Roster Gallery can't? Or is it even the state of the art screenshot plugin for the roster? Oh well, I'll just install it and check it out. :-)

Great thanks.

About the screenshots plugin: There doesn't seem to be a way to upload screenshots without UniUploader, so I couldn't test the rss... But as I said: Shouldn't be a problem for someone else, who uses that plugin to adapt my rss.php. I guess it's really just removing the (in rss useless?) categories and adapting some database field names.

I'll look into it more next week after I've moved, since I'll have very little else I can do for 2-3 weeks whilst I wait for the engineer to pop round to install my internet (eurgh 2-3 weeks without net! WAH!).

These should actually be like this
Code: Select all
        $image $addon['url_full'] . "screenshots/" $row['catagory'] . "/" $row['file'] . "." $row['ext'];
        
$thumb $addon['url_full'] . "screenshots/thumbs" "/" $row['file'] . "-thumb." $row['ext'];

Yes, php file attachments are disabled, but we do allow zip archives with php files, or .txt files for renaming to php files

Oh well, thats better, thanks. I was a little short on time the last week, but I've updated the extension now in the first post.
