What version of PHP are you running? Probably something I should look into, thanks for the heads up.

I’m running PHP 5.2.9-1. Let me know if I can help you any further to debug this.

Thanks. Would you try something for me please: modify the plugin and change line 182 from:

xml_set_object($xmlparser, &$this);

to this:

xml_set_object($xmlparser, $this);

then see if a) the warning goes away, b) the plugin still works as it did before. Ta!

Re: smd_xml : extract data from XML feeds

Try v0.2

Features:

  • Pagination / limit / offset (use negative offsets to start from the end of the feed)
  • Cached documents with variable timeout
  • Automatically linkify any links into anchored hyperlinks

Re: smd_xml : extract data from XML feeds

not been on the forums for a while – still using Txp daily, hourly! – but always impressed when dropping in … this plugin looks great, bloke … you’re a machine

P.S. I mucked around with that other plugin that takes feeds and inserts them into the db as articles … this might be more flexible, look forward to someone implementing that bit ; )

Re: smd_xml : extract data from XML feeds

dang, this is so cool!

I was just giving the plugin a try and it works effortlessly with most xml feeds. I just tried it with a sample feed from artistdata.com and I can’t get it to work…. I’m wondering if it is a problem with the artistdata feed or me (probably), or something that the plugin isn’t catching with regard to the way they do their feeds? This is the ArtistData developers info page

Here is my try at parsing it with the plugin:

<txp:smd_xml data="https://www.artistdata.com/dashboard/feed/ADS-B05XYB0QLMN8D15/17" record="Shows" fields="AgeLimit, City, Country, Date, DoorsTime, EventName, OtherArtist, OtherArtistURL, State, TicketPrice, TicketPurchaseURL, Time, Venue, VenueAddress, VenuePhone, VenuePostalCode, VenueURL" skip="Artist, ArtistIdentifier, ArtistURL, Genre, PartnerArtistIdentifier, ShowIdentifier, Status" linkify="OtherArtistURL, TicketPurchaseURL, VenueURL" wraptag="div" target_enc="iso-8859-1">
AgeLimit: {AgeLimit}<br />
City: {City}<br />
Country: {Country}<br />
Date: {Date}<br />
DoorsTime: {DoorsTime}<br />
EventName: {EventName}<br />
OtherArtist: {OtherArtist}<br />
OtherArtistURL: {OtherArtistURL}<br />
State: {State}<br />
TicketPrice: {TicketPrice}<br />
TicketPurchaseURL: {TicketPurchaseURL}<br />
Time: {Time}<br />
Venue: {Venue}<br />
VenueAddress: {VenueAddress}<br />
VenuePhone: {VenuePhone}<br />
VenuePostalCode: {VenuePostalCode}<br />
VenueURL: {VenueURL}
</txp:smd_xml>

also tried it without as many variables and it still returns nothing:

<txp:smd_xml data="https://www.artistdata.com/dashboard/feed/ADS-B05XYB0QLMN8D15/17" record="Shows" fields="Time" wraptag="div" target_enc="iso-8859-1">
Time: {Time} <br />
</txp:smd_xml>

Any ideas? I hope I haven’t just missed something obvious!

Re: smd_xml : extract data from XML feeds

photonomad,

I first thought that the feed url you are referencing is only retrievable when you’re logged in, but that doesn’t seem to be the case.

You sure your server allows fopen wrappers?
And have you checked your php error log yet?

Re: smd_xml : extract data from XML feeds

No errors in my php error log and my php.ini was set to allow_url_fopen. I just tried it with allow_url_fopen On and then switched it to Off – still no errors either way. The xml feed that I tested from upcoming.yahoo.com works fine, but the artistdata xml feed returns nothing. I’ve got Textpattern in debugging mode and no errors show there either. hmm…

Re: smd_xml : extract data from XML feeds

Don’t know if this is related, but the feed Photonomad posted does not validate. It could be a problem, given the way this plugin works (just asking Bloke)?
