[plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_live_archive

Since I’ve never been one to avoid a fad, I sat down with my pet rock to develop another AJAX based plugin.

rss_live_archive is based on Jonas Rabbe’s Super Archives Plugin for Wordpress which Jonas created in response to Micheal Heilmann’s idea of a digging archive system.

In short, the plugin gives you the ability to drill down through your archives by selecting the year, then the month and finally the specific post. The archive is cached in files that reside in your file upload directory for super speedy performance. Through the extensions -> live archive tab you can turn on automatic cache rebuilding so that the cache is regenerated each time you post or edit an article or one of your visitors posts a comment.

See it in action: wilshire|one live archive

Thanks first to Jonas. He borrowed my plugin name, I borrowed his code :) And thanks to our very own Pete and Alicson for helping to test this out.

All of the details are in the plugin docs and on the rss_live_archive plugin page.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_live_archive

wow.

okay now i won’t ask – ‘The live archive concept is a great solution for a problem I’ve been asked about several times….whats the best way to present a large archive without having 1 long list?’ ;-)

now i will try to change this silliness – http://dailymalaysia.org/archive – with your plugin.

thanks so much (here’s hoping that i can make it work!)

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_live_archive

got this plugin working here – http://dailymalaysia.org/archive

thanks so much. that was so easy to set up (i’m usually a sad case when it comes to trying to get plugins to work).

would it be possible, apart from the ‘year’ and ‘month’, to have the ‘day’ as well, just before the post title? that would be like that other plugin of yours i used to have.

thanks again.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_live_archive

Very very nice. I’ve got ~2700 articles in my archive from the past 4 years that would greatly benefit from this. I’ve been very patiently waiting for 1.0 to take advantage of all these new doo-dads … and this plug-in taxes that patience.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_live_archive

For major cool points, can we have a version that degrades gracefully when JavaScript is turned off?

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_live_archive

Looks nice ss. I can try to add the date in so you can display it.

I’d defintely like to see it on a 2700 article archive Reid. Might as well upgrade now. You might be waiting for 1.0 for a while.

uber – Are you just looking for the use of <code><noscript></code>?

It will be vacation time soon Jamie. Vacation as in no time for plugins because I have no less than 5 new sites I have to start working on as of this weekend.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_live_archive

Thanks marz.

New version, rss_live_archive 0.5 is available. There is now a subdate format like the suparchive that allows you to display the article date.

More importantly, the tag is no longer a self-closing tag which means that it should be used like this:
<code>
<txp:rss_live_archive>
<txp:rss_suparchive />
</txp:rss_live_archive>
</code>

The text or code inside the tag will be placed inside the <noscript> tag and therefore only displayed when the javascript version is not. In the example above, the live archive will degrade to a standard rss_suparchive listing when javascript is off.
