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

Nice plugin;

One question: is it possible that have the output spread over multiple pages ? Let’s say I set a limit=“50”, but I have 300 articles in a specific section or category. As it is now, the plugin will only list the 50 most recent articles; is it possible to have a ‘next page’ link to list the subsequent 50 articles, and so on.
I tried using the [txp:newer /] and [txp:older /] tags, but that didn’t seem to do it.

Also, would it be possible to include an exerpt from the article, ie
article title
article exerpt
filed under….

phiw13 – As of now, neither is possible. If I can get forms support integrated into the plugin then you would be able to use paging and define your own form where you could display the excerpt.

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

great plugin.. question tho (btw, i’m kinda new to txp so forgive my ignorance)..

i don’t see much difference in terms of functionality between an article list (that’s used on homepages and section pages) and archive pages – to me its mostly just a matter of formatting. i’d love to be able to use one tag (with a plugin like this) for both my article lists and archive lists. so if you add forms support and added the features that phiw13 asked about (i would like pagination too), i think it could be used for both. so it wouldn’t just be a superarchive lister, but a super lister period. maybe i’m way off base, dunno.

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

I think you’re exactly right Tae. When I started this it was really intended to be an archive plugin. It has evolved into much more.

One of the things that always concerned me was the fact that I needed to install different plugins for different types of lists. I too would like to be able to use this for all article lists whether current, archive, related, recent, etc.

Hopefully I’ll be able to add the forms support soon.

phiw13, Tae, Manfre, gonzo, et al.,

The rss_suparchive now supports the use of forms and paging.

Here’s a quick run through. When using the “form” attribute the only other valid options are section, category, author and limit. When in forms mode, limit refers to the number of articles that show on a page. The <code><txp:older></code> and <code><txp:newer></code> tags can be used for paging.

Enjoy!

Version 0.6
  • Added support for forms using the form attribute.

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

This is very cool. I would suggest one ‘feature’ though. Sometimes TXP displays a little status line on the very first line (Page default saved, Article saved as Pending, etc.) I think these are getting blocked. Is there any way to have them still show up in the header?

Whups, this is actually in the wrong thread! So sorry.

Phew, you had me quite confused there for a minute. I was just getting ready to respond with a huh?

I figure you’re headed to the QuikPik thread. I’m right behind you.

Thanks! Awesome job. It’s used in two places on <a href=“http://www.holdem-strategy.net”>Holdem-Strategy</a> now, in the recent articles on the right and in the archives link from the bottom.

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

Here’s a suggestion; I have no idea how feasible it is, just because I have no clue about the coding side of the script.

Is it possible just to have a list of the months without displaying the Titles below it, until you click on the specific month?

Just that when I figure out how to import my blogger archives (or have entered them all in by hand!!) I’ll have 250+ titles on the one archive page- which will be very large and messy.
