WordPress as a CMS (6 posts)

    Posted 7 years ago #

    I am looking for a specific feature that could interest all the WP community (we are in, no ?).
    Well i am looking for a plugin that would :

    analyse the poste on the save_post event and store in a table all WP external components :
    <img, <a (internet sites, doc, xls, pdf ...) <embed ...

    I have been looking for this during long hours on the net. But i believe my quest won't be solve by one knight :-)
    Thank you for your help

    Could you explain a bit more what you would like to do?

    Well ...

    Posts are made of

    • text
    • other stuff included as images, links, docs, videos etc... (<img>,<embed>,< a>,<object>... html tags)

    so i would like to have a plugin to store all the external references of a post in a table.

    The purpose is to have the ability to for example

    • create an rss/atom feed with <img> html tags in the <image>/<logo> rss/atom tag instead of having it in the <description> tag.
    • to include an image when using the 'the_content_rss()' function to display post summaries
    • to have the ability (why not) to forbid all external links that are not compliant to your publishing policy
      ... well that would be a huge dvpt i believe
    • * i am sure you can have plenty other ideas

      Or instead of a plugin, having a 'the_image_rss()' function
      like you have in WP the 'the_content_rss()' function that as all html tags removed (sort of fgetss php function used) .

      Am i clear enough ...ps : i noticed that when you publish a post with a <img src='myphoto.jpg'>Me</img>, WP modifies the tag in the post to <img src='myphoto.jpg'/>

    i am sure that with regular expressions (preg_match_all) there is something to dig, i tried to find a good tutorial ... i am still looking for it ...

    if you still want more info, look at my site

    on the first page, the picture appears on the right.

    if you go to the post page (for today it's http://www.nogent94.com?p=25) picture appears on the left.

    that is the kind of thing you can do with Xref....

    On php.net, preg_match_all is normally well explained.
    But regular expressions are, hmmm, how to say that ... reserved to guys who can work a lot on a list of 10 characters...
