[Plugin: pb-embedFlash] widget (4 posts)

    I really like this plugin (esp the widget). But I would like to be able to change the contents of the field pb_embedFlash_widgets in the options table using a php script (so I can schedule different videos to display at different times). Unfortunately any change to the content of the pb_embedFlash_widgets field seems to inactivate the plugin.

    Any suggestions?

    This could have several reasons:

    • Does your script use unserialize and serialize to read/store the data from/into the pb_embedFlash_widgets field?
    • Do you modify the structure in any way?

    If the advices don't help then I'll need the full PHP code.

    My mistake. In pb_embedFlash-widets you find an array whose elements look like this:

    s:5:"title";

    The "5" refers to the number of characters in "title". If you change "title" to "my_title" you must also change 5 to 8 or the plugin breaks.

    You can ease your program heavily by using unserialize to make an array out of the {s:5:"title";...} string and use serialize to do vice versa. :D

    Nothing else I'm doing to store an array in a single option field.
