Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] chh_related_articles

I’d need almost exactly the same as mattmikulla: “display all related articles in a category (here: custom_x) including the article being actively viewed”
I’d like to use it for a linked line of numbers, each number representing an article, it’s appearance similar to the pagination known from google (the relation has to be taken from custom field entries, so ob1_googlenav cannot be applied here). Such a navigation is much more user friendly, if the numbers don’t change every time another page is being read. Is there a plugin, that does exactly this job? Or, maybe:
Is it possible to patch chh_related_articles? It might be possible that the plugin itself has a function that subtracts the currently viewed article from an array(?) of all related articles. If so, the concerning line(s) only had to be deactivated. But I don’t have the slightest PHP-expertise to read into the source coe and find these. Or maybe making possible something like «offset=”-1”» which doesn’t work.
I’d appreciate any solution or just a tip, that gets me nearer to what I’m aiming at.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] chh_related_articles

BTW, there’s a modification to chh_article_custom by ruud, that can be applied to chh_related_articles as well. It’s for PHP5 installations. If you have PHP4, there’s another solution by ruud two posts below. I’ve tried the one for PHP5: No more errors in test mode!

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] chh_related_articles

Hi. I used to use this plugin with TxP version 4.0.4. It stopped working after I upgraded to 4.0.5. Has anybody got it working in version 4.0.5? Is the author still developing it actively? Or is there a similar plugin which does the same?
Any help appreciated.
Oliver

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] chh_related_articles

Have you tried to modify the plugin as I mentioned in post #50? Could be a possibility to get it working.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] chh_related_articles

No. I tried both versions of the solution but they didn’t work. I get the following errors in Testing mode:

tag_error <txp:chh_related_articles relation="title->keywords" section="releases" sortby="custom_2" sortdir="asc" wraptag="ul" break="li" class="related" label="&#9835; Related releases" labeltag="h4" /> ->  Textpattern Notice: Unknown tag attribute: section  on line 605

Obviously, Textpattern doesn’t recognize one attribute from the tag. I don’t know any PHP so I’m lost here. And I’m developing locally on my Mac with PHP 4.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] chh_related_articles

I get around 28 errors of the same kind on one page. But now I noticed that it seems to work all the same since I get the correct outputs. Strangely, on one page (section), it seems to work but not in the other. The working one has the relation set to “custom_1”, in the other (working) one, the relation is set to “title->keywords”. Very strange.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] chh_related_articles

Try this: turn off chh_related_article, see if there are further errors, eliminate them, then switch chh back on.
I had handmade errors that increased chh’s susceptibility. It ran properly (though with a whole novel of error reports) when I had eliminated my own faults. (nevertheless: it was 4.0.4, not 4.0.5)

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] chh_related_articles

Problem is, it used to work perfectly for me in 4.0.4.

But as you suggested, I eliminated all errors, switched off all other plugins (ob1_title, rss_admin_show_adv_opts, jnm_audio) and still get errors like these:

tag_error <txp:chh_related_articles relation="title->keywords" section="releases" sortby="custom_2" sortdir="asc" wraptag="ul" break="li" class="related" labeltag="h4" /> ->  Textpattern Notice: Unknown tag attribute: section  on line 605
textpattern/lib/txplib_misc.php:605 trigger_error()
textpattern/lib/txplib_misc.php(534) : eval()'d code:191 latts()
textpattern/lib/txplib_misc.php(534) : eval()'d code:184 chh_build_article_list()
textpattern/publish.php:963 chh_related_articles()
processtags()
textpattern/publish.php:922 preg_replace_callback()
textpattern/lib/txplib_misc.php:1383 parse()
textpattern/publish.php:704 parse_form()
textpattern/publish.php:808 doarticles()
textpattern/publish.php:798 parsearticles()

Notice this line:

Textpattern Notice: Unknown tag attribute: section  on line 605

I get the above error once for every attribute available in chh_related_article (section, sortby, sortdir, label, break, wraptag, etc.). Not only for those I use in my particular case.

…And to add a little more to the fun: I don’t get any errors in the section the plugin doesn’t work at all and displays nothing. It just fails silently.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] chh_related_articles

I get the above error once for every attribute available

That’s what I meant with »novel« ;)
Sorry I couldn’t help you any further. I have no PHP expertise, I’ve only managed to sort out my own troubles with this plugin.
Good luck!
BTW, if you get to solve your troubles, be so kind to post your solution here, will you?
