  1. I am confused about the use of the <link> and <enclosure> subelements of the <item> subelement. The difference between the <link> subelements of the <channel> and <item> elements appears clear, but the difference between the <link> and <enclosure> subelements of the <item> subelement are difficult to understand. For example, if your RSS feed contained a long series of <item> subelements with each referring to a different podcast, why would you need both a <link> and <enclosure> for the same <item> subelement. <channel> <link></link> <item> <link></link> <enclosure></enclosure> </item> </channel>
  2. trouble parsing just img src out of RSS feed?

    Hello, I am trying to create an RSS reader based on this example: http://www.w3schools.com/php/php_ajax_rss_reader.asp Specifically, I am attempting to modify this example so that the reader will access and display all the available comic images (and nothing else) from any given web comic RSS feed. I realize that it may be necessary to make the code at least a little site-specific, but I am trying to make it as general-purpose as possible. Currently, I have modified the initial example to produce a reader that displays all the comics of a given list of RSS feeds.. However, it also displays other unwanted text information that I am trying to get rid of. Here is my code so far, with a few feeds that are giving me trouble in particular: index.php file: <html> <head> <script> function showRSS() { if (window.XMLHttpRequest) { // code for IE7+, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari xmlhttp=new XMLHttpRequest(); } else { // code for IE6, IE5 xmlhttp=new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP"); } xmlhttp.onreadystatechange=function() { if (xmlhttp.readyState==4 && xmlhttp.status==200) { document.getElementById("rssOutput").innerHTML=xmlhttp.responseText; } } xmlhttp.open("GET","logger.php",true); xmlhttp.send(); } </script> </head> <body onload="showRSS()"> <div id="rssOutput"></div> </body> </html> (pretty sure there's nothing wrong with this file; I think the problems arise in the next one although I included this one for completeness) logger.php: <?php //function to get all comics from an rss feed function getComics($xml) { $xmlDoc = new DOMDocument(); $xmlDoc->load($xml); $x=$xmlDoc->getElementsByTagName('item'); foreach ($x as $x) { $comic_image=$x->getElementsByTagName('description')->item(0)->childNodes->item(0)->nodeValue; //output the comic echo ($comic_image . "</p>"); echo ("<br>"); } } //create array of all RSS feed URLs $URLs = [ "SMBC" => "http://www.smbc-comics.com/rss.php", "garfieldMinusGarfield" => "http://garfieldminusgarfield.net/rss", "babyBlues" => "http://www.comicsyndicate.org/Feed/Baby%20Blues", ]; //Loop through all RSS feeds foreach ($URLs as $xml) { getComics($xml); } ?> Because this method includes extra text in between the comic images (a lot of random stuff with SMBC, just a few advertisement links for gMg, and a copyright link for baby blues), I looked at the RSS feeds and concluded that the problem is that it's the description tag that includes the image source, but also includes other stuff. Next, I tried modifying the getComics function to scan directly for the image tag, rather than first looking for the description tag. I replaced the part in between the DOMDocument creation/loading and the URL list with: $images=$xmlDoc->getElementsByTagName('img'); print_r($images); foreach ($images as $image) { //echo $image->item(0)->getAttribute('src'); echo $image->item(0)->nodeValue; echo ("<br>"); } but apparently getElementsByTagName doesn't pick up the image tag embedded inside the description tag, because I get no comic images outputted, and the following output from the print_r statement: DOMNodeList Object ( [length] => 0 ) DOMNodeList Object ( [length] => 0 ) Finally, I tried a combination of the two methods, trying to use getElementsByTagNam('img') inside the code that parses out the description tag contents. I replaced the line: $comic_image=$x->getElementsByTagName('description')->item(0)->childNodes->item(0)->nodeValue; with: $comic_image=$x->getElementsByTagName('description')->item(0)->getElementsByTagName('img'); print_r($comic_image); But this also finds nothing, producing the output: DOMNodeList Object ( [length] => 0 ) So sorry for the really long background, but I'm wondering if there is a way to parse just the img src out of a given RSS feed without the other text and links I don't want? Help would be much appreciated
  3. Hi, I've just built a basic web site, but I now realise (by going through the process) that I need to understand other languages & processes in order to make the site streamlined & fully functional. Because I've only learnt html & css (on a basic level) my understanding of php, sql, js, xml, etc is very poor. I therefor need some advice on what the best mechanisms are for inputting data, storing it & displaying it on the web, possibly with some type of rss feed too. The basic process the site is doing, can be described as follows: 1. Users enter data using an online form. 2. Data is stored on a database & manually verified. 3. Certain info from the database is automatically displayed on the site (but not all) in a friendly viewable format. 4. Every time the site is updated a feed is created (like an rss or blog). The first two processes I have achieved, but I am exploring ways of achieving the 3rd & 4th processes. Any advice on what methods or languages would be best to use would be greatly appreciated. I'm happy to learn any coding required. The data set can be stored in various formats (xlsx, csv, ods, tsv, etc), its really a question of the best way to interpret it & automatically display it that I am exploring. Along with creating the feed. Thanks for any advice. Old Guy.

  10. The purpose of this assignment is for you to exercise your skills on: 1) server side processing ofXML technologies, 2) consuming web services and 3) making use of digital map services. Your taskin this exercise will be to develop and implement a web-based personalized location based newsservice that will visualize news content in the digital maps based on the location of the particularnews.The system you will develop should provide the following functionality to its users.1. Your system should allow the users to aggregate three different RSS feeds (they should bepure RSS and NOT GeoRSS feeds). Examples of such feeds can be found at:http://newsrss.bbc.c...n/world/rss.xmlhttp://www.nytimes.c...rvices/xml/rss/2. User should be able to filter the aggregated RSS feeds using a random keyword (you canchoose the keyword freely) and based on that to generate a new RSS feed containing onlythe filtered news items.3. The system should enable transformation of the filtered RSS feed into a GeoRSS.4. The system should visualize the generated GeoRSS feed using a digital map service (such asGoogle Maps, Yahoo Maps, Bing Maps, OpenStreetMaps etc.)Im kinda stuck in here , can please somebody help me with my project , cause my teacher is really bad in explaining ...So please somebody help me !
  11. RSS and XML

    I wonder if anyone can help me? I am trying to connect to a RSS feed - which is in a xml file format - and display selected content from the feed in a web page; I am using a Wordpress site to display the output but I do not think that is really relevant. What I am stuck on is how exactly I import [connect to] the feed and then display selected content from the feed. I am used to dynamic content using PHP, MySQL, scripts, client and server side scripting etc so I feel that I should be able to work this out but am finding it very difficult to find reading material on the subject that I want. Can someone pls advise, detail:1. connect to a RSS feed2. display selected content from the feed using XML Thanks...
