WP RSS Multi Importer
[resolved] Images and odd formatting (40 posts)

    HI again,

    So I kind of got this to work. I like this plugin but having an issue. What I'm trying to do is create a horizontal (ideally) list of items from a feed with images and excerpts. If you go to my experiment page you'll see that the formatting is a bit off.

    My question is two fold:
    1. Can anything be done to align the items as they appear to be cascaded?
    2. Can I align them horizontally instead of vertically? (Actually as an idea for you, wrapping this in a bit of javascript and adding an automatic scroller would be ideal :))

    Appreciate any tips.

    Nik

    hmm..good question...that would require likely stripping all the divs out of the css file, and building your own css file and also digging into the last lines of the plugin to make the css work. The plugin is currently designed to go the way all rss feeds typically do, namely vertical..so you're breaking new ground here.

    Makes sense and good response times:)

    The immediate question is can I at least get the div's aligned vertically? It kind of looks a little too funky right now.

    I'd love to just have title, image, excerpt. It's almost exactly what I need for my site. In fact what swayed me to this plugin was image import as most others seem to strip images out of rss feeds.

    ok..what's happening is that the images you have coming in from the RSS feed are way big. This is a problem I'm fixing with the next release where I'll be giving you control to reduce to the image size...this will hopefully be pushed in the next few days. Until then, the only thing is to turn off images in the excerpt (that's an option in the control panel).

    Gotcha, thanks again for the record breaking response times. Drop a note when the next release is pushed out. But yes, image size would be ideal especially if you can scale them automatically :)

    can you send me a link to where this is happening but also I need to know the RSS feed as well since the problem may be with the original RSS feed.

    Hi,
    I just looked at those 2 feeds...the first one (feeds.health, etc.) hasn't been updated since March...the feed has an image, but my plugin can't read it because it's weirdly embeded in the RSS feed, and the second feed doesn't have images. Could you send me a link to where this is showing up as a problem?

    well, I don't have a problem at all with the BBC...look here:

    http://www.allenweiss.com/test

    There is no repeating image (and there shouldn't be). Since you're doing this on a local machine, I would look at the set up you have, or at least try to see if this happens if you do this on a production server...that's the only way I know if this is a problem with the plugin or a problem with the server.

    By The way Allen how to get feed numbers to one (reset numbers)

    First of all, the feed numbers are set according to the order in the database...the numbers are irrelevant since they are for coding purposes only - I could easily suppress the numbers and it wouldn't make a difference.

    As for the fix, this is what you do (and will be available in the next update which you will see indicated the next time you go into the admin section on your wordpress site, or check back at http://www.allenweiss.com where I typically announce when there is an update.

    What you need to is edit the main file for the plugin, find this line

    $myarray[] = array("mystrdate"=>strtotime($item->get_date()),"mytitle"=>$item->get_title(),"mylink"=>$item->get_link(),"myGroup"=>$feeditem["FeedName"],"mydesc"=>$item->get_description(),"myimage"=>$mediaImage);

    and add this line right below

    unset($mediaImage);

    That will solve the problem.

    If you don't know how to do this, then wait for the update which, as I said, will happen in the next few days.

    Best wishes,
    Allen

    Hai Allen sorry for the late response AS I was offline.

    I think u have provided the code to solve the problem of repeating the same image.I ll try to find the code and edit.

    By the way Allen is there any reason to show only two feeds(Say BBC & CNN ONLY FOR AN EXAMPLE)When i have selected 8 more feed
    Frankly If I selected Say 8 feeds only 2 feed s are appearing

    Thank u Allen And waiting for ur next update eagerly.I think u may let Me Know
    Best Wishes

    Hi,
    Tomorrow I'll be pushing the new version. Just download it when you see it (version 2.4) in which I added the code.

    Not sure what you are asking. How many separate RSS URLS do you have in the admin section?

    When you say you selected 8, are you referring to the number of items per feed?

    first of all, if you want to float to the right and change the size of the image (say to 100 in width), you do it like this in the shortcode

    [wp_rss_multi_importer floattype="right" maximgwidth="100"]

    For these two things, you don't need to edit the code..just use parameters in the shortcode

    No Allen I am not referring to number of items per feed.I am referring to number of URLS
    Say I have 8 rss url.
    But In my site only showing items relevant to 2 urls.

    It seems to be problem in pagination section .I feel i am doing some thing wrong but cant find

    I think u got the point.
    Great response time
    Thanks Allen

    The easiest way for me to handle this is for you to put here the 8 URLs that you are using for RSS feeds. That way I can see what is going on.

    Also, tell me what you have set for the item marked in this:

    ok..first of all, download the most recent version of the plugin which I just launched 20 minutes ago...see if that solves the image problem...let me know before I see if these other issues are solve by the most recent update.

    Also, regarding the alignment out, you need to see this
