PHP/MagPie: Download ‘DingShow’ a.k.a. ‘DentShow’
“Ding” is kind of a translation of “dent” to German. The meaning is “thing” or “something”.
MagPie had to be patched on my server. Solution and description is here:
@filzo Patched #MagPie here: http://is.gd/2fEV (Scroll to “Technische Notiz zu MagpieRSS”) Description etag bug: http://is.gd/2fF6
To show off your identi.ca/Laconica feed simply edit the last line of the index.php.
The Author of this PHP/MagPie solution for identi.ca/Laconica is:
The idea to create the raw PHP solution was forcefully pushed at him after he developed the dingshow-plugin for WordPress 🙂
Thanks and a big hat tip to Philip!
How do I get this to work? When I try to open the index.php file in Firefox, it asks me if I want to download the file. When I try to embed it in my Joomla site using IncludePHP, I get a bunch of errors. TIA
hi markus, appreciate your reply, i’d completely missed the points you raised about the features.
as a test i’ve *borrowed* the regex from the dingshow code and added it to yahoo pipes. this now supports @links, general links and working #hashtag links. have updated original pipe, feel free to take a look.
also i agree hashtag tracing is a fine idea, might see what we can do on that front too.
@casi Nice #Yahoo #pipe template for #identica feeds http://is.gd/2zx6 via @sidepodcast. Linktip for your #dingshow page?
Great if you want to show off multiple authors or feeds. Also tracing only certain hashtags from your ‘all’ feed should be easy.
The magic of the solution is in the ‘Features line’.
If you look at the standard RSS feed and compare it to my example then you will discover the features. The RSS feed import will only link to the identi.ca note page!
I agree that this article is a pretty rough and raw article. But I published it this way because I have a blog here and not a technical documentary. Pls. accept my excuses
i literally have no idea what any of the above post means.
however, if you’re discussing ways to get identi.ca feeds into a wordpress blog. can i recommend yahoo pipes?
we have a working example on the sidebar here:
pipes merges x2 identi.ca streams and then we use the default WP rss widget to display on homepage.
