Advanced XML Reader
[resolved] Multiple Entries Loop (6 posts)

    Hi Raymond,

    I think many people are really eager for the update that permits proper looping through multiple entries. After all, it's not often that an XML feed will only contain a single entry. :S Do you know when we can expect the modification?

    If it's going to be a while, do you know of another plugin that permits multiple entries?

    Hi,
    Sorry for my very late reply. I can tell you that I finally found a solution to loop through multiple entries. It took me a lot of time to figure out how to make that possible. For now, the only thing I need to do is speeding it up, because it's a bit slower then version 0.2 right now. I plan to release this new version between now and 3 weeks.

    I hope I informed you enough.
    Raymond

    Hi Raymand - this is an awesome plugin!

    Is it possible for the plugin to loop and parse through multiple entries, but for the user to only specify a single entry?

    For example, I have an XML file with a key labeled offerdetails which is repeated. I get the following message:

    offerdetails This is a list containing multiple values. [advanced-xml:offerdetails]

    Within offerdetails, there are many other keys, such as OfferId
    and Offername

    How can I single out offername from offerdetails 1234?

    At the moment it's not possible to do that. It's very complex to get into a loop of multiple items. I will see what I can do for you and if I found a solution I will release it in an new version.
    So, at the moment you can only show the whole list of items that are inside a loop and not only one item.

    I hope this will help you.

    Hi Raymond,
    thanks for your plugin - I almost got it to do what I want to... :-)

    Here is my remaining issue:
    - this feed uses "description" once to describe the whole feed (like a feed name) and then again within the items to describe the changing "events" in this feed
    - is there a way to specify the different occurences of this tag-name?
    - like [item.description] or [item/description]?

    thanks for advise!

    Hi,
    That would be very difficult. I will see what I can do for you, but it's difficult to let the plugin decide the difference between two tags with he same name.
