Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_auto_excerpt

Hello!
This tag: <txp:etc_query data=’<txp:body />’ query=“p[position()<3]” /> displayed the first two paragraphs – it is right.

This tag: <txp:etc_query data=’<txp:body />’ query=‘string(p[position()<3])’ /> – displayed only one first paragraph.

What to do? We need the first two paragraphs and “string”…

Because XPath string function applies only to the first matched node. You can try query="p[position()<3]/text()" instead (untested).

Edit: and this should work as you intend:

<txp:etc_query data='<txp:body />' query="p[position()<3]">
	{string()}
</txp:etc_query>

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_auto_excerpt

Hi guys,

I can’t get the parameter excerpt=”“ to work with a custom field I created with glz_custom_fields.

This is my code:
<txp:rss_auto_excerpt length=“250” linkwraptag=”“ linktext=”“ striptags=“1” excerpt=“custom_38_set” />

I’ve tried different ways to refer to the custom field:
custom-38, custom_38, the label name … nothing works. I’ve even changed the name of the custom field in the database to a single word and tried that, didn’t work. I also tried different custom fields and a custom_field within the first 10 (standard) custom fields. No results so far.

Right now it seems that the excerpt=”“ option just doesn’t work for custom fields (it does work with title i.e.).

Any ideas?

Thx a million!

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_auto_excerpt

Hi, welcome to the forum.

The excerpt attribute pulls its data from the global $thisarticle array. Try to output

<txp:php>
global $thisarticle;
print_r($thisarticle);
</txp:php>

to see in which field (if any) your custom data is stored. Normally, if you give some_name to one of custom_1,...,custom_10 fields, then $thisarticle['some_name'] is set, and excerpt="some_name" should work.

If I’ve understood you correctly that you want custom field 38 (whatever you called it) to be the excerpt with no html and no longer than 250 chars, you could use smd_wrap instead. Something like example 7 in the docs. For example:

<txp:smd_wrap_all wraptag="p" class="excerpt" transform="strip_tags, cut|250|33w|&hellip;">
  <txp:custom_field name="some_name" />
</txp:smd_wrap_all>

That gives you 250 chars with additional truncation to 33 words if split mid-word and adds an afterwards, all wrapped in <p class="excerpt">…</p>.

You should use the own name you specified for custom field 38 for the attribute.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_auto_excerpt

Thanks etc:

I’ve named my custom fields like this: Intro title, Intro background, without the ‘_’ to make it more user friendly towards my clients. When I changed the name of a custom field in my database (where they are marked as custom_set_38 i.e.) and used that name in the parameter it didn’t work either. Maybe the rss_auto_excerpt plugin doesn’t use the database name but the names that pop up with that PHP code you gave me? I could try it out changing one custom fields name in the glz_custom_field plugin page.

Thanks jakob:
I’m definitely going to try it out. I’ve read about smd_wrap a couple of times but haven’t checked it out completely.

Thx guys!

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_auto_excerpt

As far as I remember, custom field names should not have spaces in them, but if you want the custom field labels to be different in the write panel, you can use bot_cf_titles.

Maybe the rss_auto_excerpt plugin doesn’t use the database name but the names that pop up with that PHP code you gave me?

rss_auto_excerpt uses a valid value of $thisarticle[…]);, so etc’s code outputs all the possible candidates you can use.

You might also want to try mkp_excerpt which is billed as a new version of rss_auto_excerpt, although I’m not sure what the difference is (Michael Pate is active on the forum, so he may pipe in here with an answer).

Thanks for your reply. I’m going to swap the spaces in my custom fields names with “_” and give bot_cf_titles a go. Thanks. I’ll let you know about the end result.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_auto_excerpt

i know the plugin is orphan, but maybe somebody could still help me.

code (not full) i’m using in article form :

...<txp:rss_auto_excerpt words="20" ending=" [&hellip;]" showlinkwithexcerpt="1" linktext="Read more" linkwraptag="p" linkclass="more" body="body" overrideexcerpt="1"	showlinkwithbody="0" />...

the problem is in image code. if i insert image code into article (inside first 20 words) that way:

<txp:images id="60" form="single" />

form single:

<span class="single-img">
<img src="<txp:image_url />" title='<txp:image_info type="caption" />' />
<span style="width: <txp:image_info type="w" />px;" class="thumb-alt"><txp:image_info type="caption" /></span>
</span>

i get this error:

Tag error:  ->  Notice: Undefined offset: 0 while parsing form None on page default_est

if i insert the same image like this !http://www.lmno.ee/images/60.png! – no errors.

Can you have a look please where this might come from?
