Also of note, I reinstalled the plugin just to make sure that I didn’t mess something up and it still did not work.

Not sure if this of interest to anyone here, but I wrote about my usage of this plug-in on my site:

Hope someone finds it useful.

I don’t know how familar you are with php but if you could check a few things it would help. Its pretty hard for me to diagnose a problem without being able to get it to happen here.

First scan down from the top of the plugin and look for a block that starts with <code>
if ($form) {</code>. Do an echo or something on the $form to make sure the value is set correctly.

A few lines further down theres a variable called $q which is the query that is being run. Echo that and see if it looks correct. Try running it using phpmyadmin to see if you’re getting the results you expect.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_suparchive - article archive list

How feasible would it be to add an “offest” parameter to this? Check out my weblog archive for a case where this’d be useful; as-is, the most recent entry is displayed up top and then listed again in the rss_suparchive output. It’d be nice to be able to specify, say, offset="1" on rss_suparchive and have it start from the second most-recent article.


You cooin’ with my bird?

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_suparchive - article archive list

It wouldn’t be that difficult to add. The only problem seems to be that you’ve decided to drop all people named Rob, which is of course what the r in rss_suparchive stands for. So I might have to think some more about it :)

I am planning on releasing a new version sometime soon that includes some minor bug fixes among other things. I’ll add this to the list.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_suparchive - article archive list

Just discovered this plugin and it looks great, but here’s a mystery:

If I put in the txp:rss_suparchive_bycat / tag everything works fine (http://www.futurosity.com/?s=Archives).

But if I try any other tags (I cut and pasted several examples from the wilshire|one site), I get nothing!

I know I’m probably missing something very obvious, but I’d really like to get this working. I want to use this display:

txp:rss_suparchive showsection=“1” showauthor=“1” showsubdate=“1” dateformat=“F Y” class=“aa” limit=“5”

…but it just won’t work (I tried tweaking it).

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I’ve just switched to TP from WordPress and I’m still finding my way.

Thanks!

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_suparchive - article archive list

If you’re cutting and pasting from the site you might be getting the quotes as “smart” (or not so smart) quotes. Make sure you just have plain old quotes that you’re pasting in.

To be safe you can view the source of the page and copy from there.

Nope, that’s not it. I checked my code and tried cutting and pasting from your source. Any other ideas? Should I send you the HTML for the page?

Thanks for the help!

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_suparchive - article archive list

The rss_suparchive by default gets articles that are in the section “article”. If you’re articles aren’t in a section called article you need to specify something in the section=”“ attribute or you won’t get any results.

If thats not the problem feel free to send some code.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_suparchive - article archive list

That was it! I didn’t think about that because there was no section tag in the example I wanted to use.

I knew it was something obvious. Thanks very much for your help, and for the great plugin.
