Re: aks_rss : RSS parser and aggregator

Hello Markus. I’m using one of your simple scripts to view this rss feed: http://vahomeschoolers.org/blog/feed/, but it does not view. However, when I use alternative rss feeds they show. Maybe you could enlighten me to my obvious error?

Here’s the code I’m using: <txp:aks_rss limit=“8” form=“feed_listing” feed=“http://vahomeschoolers.org/blog/feed/” />

Best,
Richard

Re: aks_rss : RSS parser and aggregator

Richard, don’t get me wrong but I have no idea which ‘simple script’ you might talk about. I have no scripts and should you talk about the previous off-topic SimplePie media player thread … this should not continue here :)

OK, you are using the aks_rss plug-in.
What does it show?
The SimplePie demo for your feed looks pretty good.

Re: aks_rss : RSS parser and aggregator

Markus,

I should have said simple “tag,” which is this: <txp:aks_rss limit=“8” form=“feed_listing” feed=“http://vahomeschoolers.org/blog/feed/” />

The content from that website is simply not viewing on my page.

Re: aks_rss : RSS parser and aggregator

I’m frustrated. I’m using the aks_rss tag as indicated above and it will not show anything (I get this error message on the top of my page: “A feed could not be found at http://vahomeschoolers.org/blog/feed/”). But when I swap the feed link to another (http://feeds.bbci.co.uk/news/rss.xml) it views. And, as Markus pointed out in his Simple Pie demo, it shows there.

Could the problem be that I’m required to use Simple Pie with the aks_rss plug-in for this feed location?

Perhaps someone has an alternative tag example I could try?

Thanks for your patience with me.

Re: aks_rss : RSS parser and aggregator

And, as Markus pointed out in his Simple Pie demo, it shows there.

It is not my SP demo. It’s their standard demo page.
Nevertheless this demo page is my fast standard check for feeds.
Oh, 1st I open the feed URL in Firefox (and check it) and from there I have a ‘subscribe with SimplePie’ which is explained somewhere on the SP site how to do it and which is the convenient way to hand over the feed to the demo page.

Could the problem be that I’m required to use Simple Pie with the aks_rss plug-in for this feed location?

AFAIK (pretty sure) aks_rss uses the SimplePie library

Perhaps someone has an alternative tag example I could try?

I am still using the original SimplePie Textpattern plug-in v.1.2.2. AFAIK with the latest SimplePie library file.

Richard a fast check if the feed is not in the page. Just to make sure that the output is not hidden for what ever obscure reason:

  1. wrap aks_rss tag in HTML comments
  2. Do a forced reload in your browser for that page/article
  3. Check for the comments and what is between them in the HTML source code

Richard, a fast check if the feed is fetched by the plug-in and make sure you have a fresh feed file:

  1. Empty the SimplePie cache directory on the server
  2. Do a forced reload in your browser for that page/article (and check page/HTML :)
  3. Check the SimplePie cache directory on the server for the cached feed file
  4. If file is there open it with text editor and check if the XML contains the correct content

Let us know.

Re: aks_rss : RSS parser and aggregator

I’m trying to upgrade from bit_rss to aks_rss and I’m just not sure how to reformulate my forms and tags. Here is what I have for bit_rss (four forms/tags):

form rss:

    <h3><txp:permlink><txp:title /></txp:permlink></h3>
    <blockquote>
        <p><txp:rss_auto_excerpt words="75" showlinkwithexcerpt="0" /></p>
        <p align="right" class="smallcaps"><em>~ <txp:posted /></em><br><txp:permlink>Go To Entry</txp:permlink> &rarr;</p>
    </blockquote>

example tag:

<txp:rah_function call="strip_tags" allowed_tags="<a><p><br><em><strong><i><b><u><h1><h2><h3><form><input><span><div><table><td><tr><th><thead><tbody><blockquote>">
		<txp:bit_rss feed="http://opalcat.livejournal.com/data/atom" limit="4" form="rss" wraptag="p" />
</txp:rah_function>

form rss_forum

    <span class="forum_title"><txp:permlink><txp:title /></txp:permlink></span>, <span class="small"><em>latest post <txp:posted /></em></span> <!--span class="smallcaps"> ~    
 <txp:permlink>Read Thread</txp:permlink> &rarr;</span--><br />

example tag:

<txp:bit_rss feed="http://fff.fathom.org/forums/external.php?type=rss2" limit="10" form="rss_forum" />

form rss_gallery

    <td width="33%"><h3><txp:permlink><txp:title /></txp:permlink></h3>
    <p><txp:rss_auto_excerpt words="75" showlinkwithexcerpt="0" /></p>
    <p class="smallcaps"><txp:permlink>View Album</txp:permlink> &rarr;</p></td>

example tag:

<txp:rah_function call="html_entity_decode">
		<txp:bit_rss feed="http://gallery2.opalcat.com/gallery2/main.php?g2_view=rss.Render&g2_name=OpalCat%27s+Gallery+Feed" limit="3" form="rss_gallery" cache_dir="/home2/juggler1/public_html/opalcat/textpattern/cache/" />
</txp:rah_function>

form rss_googleplus

    <a href="https://plus.google.com/109656880045202933892/about"><img src="/images/243.jpg" width="30" height="30" alt="Google+ Profile" title="Google+ Profile" align="left" vspace="5" hspace="5" border="0" /></a><span class="forum_title"><txp:permlink><txp:title />...</txp:permlink></span> 
    <span class="small"><em>Posted <txp:posted /></em></span> <!--span class="smallcaps"> ~ <txp:permlink>Go to entry</txp:permlink> &rarr;</span--><br clear="all"/>

example tag:

<txp:bit_rss feed="http://gplusrss.com/rss/feed/5058dfd7e29c9972330215aecdbc2dc94f75300918013" limit="3"  form="rss_googleplus"  />

Can someone show me how to get the same results with aks_rss?

Re: aks_rss : RSS parser and aggregator

I don’t have a lot of cash these days (who does?) but I can shell out $20 to someone who can port over my bit_rss stuff (4 form templates, basically, and making sure I have the right tag to call the feed on my page template) to aks_rss, including updating SimplePie if it needs it… my current one says:

// SimplePie Info
	var $name = 'SimplePie';
	var $version = '1.0 b3.2';
	var $build = '20061124';

Alternately, I can trade with you for this, either your choice of 6 tubes of handmade lip balm from my site here: Opal Essence All Natural or I can trade you a fine art print of one of my paintings or photograms from my Specials page here (the first one listed, the 18” × 12.5” one, is excempted… all the others are available for trade).

Normally I’d just slog through and try to figure it out on my own, but you would not believe the number of projects I have going right now—I am way too busy to figure this out. Anyone game?

Re: aks_rss : RSS parser and aggregator

Please have a look whether anything from this topic can help you, e.g. emptying the cache.
