ipeRSS Reloaded

Embedd ipernity images in WordPress in various ways.

What is ipernity?

ipernity is a France-based media sharing community. It’s a bit like flickr, but without the stupid comments and without the censorship. It’s located at ipernity.com.

Where to get my ipernity user name/the group id/etc.?

You can get the needed data via opening the desired user photo stream, goup page, etc. in your browser and click the RSS icon. Now have a look at the address bar. There is a section XXX_id=BLAH where BLAH is the information you want. Put this part (only the BLAH) in the item field at the widget setup page or in the item attribute of the shortcode/template tag.

My custom CSS does not work

  • Check if you enabled the option to apply the custom CSS. If not, enable the option and save the widget. See shortcode help, too.
  • Check if you already entered and saved custom CSS code at the configuration page. If not, write some CSS code save the code.
  • Check, if you wrote some applicable CSS code. Refer to the listing left of the custom CSS input area for information on what tags can be used.
  • Check the frontend source code. In the header should be some lines starting with div.ipersscustom. Search for div class="iperssdiv in the source code and check if in the class="" definition a ipersscustom is present. If not, write a bug report containing your theme and WordPress version please :)

I see an error message instead of the images

Fine … Now read and try to understand the message ;) Try solving the problems that are described by the message. If you think you solved the problem, but you still see the error message, feel free to contact me.

I don’t see any output from ipeRSS

Maybe ipernity is not accesible at the moment. Please wait a moment and try again. If it still does not work, please have a look at the frontend’s source code and search for your ipeRSS title. Try to find some code that indicates what the problem could be, and write a bug report.

WordPress output stops at ipeRSS

I noticed that during testing. Under unknown circumstances WordPress output dies if the feed that should be parsed is not available for some reasons. I tried to circuit that but it did not work.

In most cases ipernity should work as expected. Maybe it is enough to reload the page.

I’m on it.

Are there any shortcodes?

Yes, there are. You can easily add ipernity galleries to you blog posts or pages by using [iperss item="USERNAME /]. See the built-in documentation for other shortcode parameters.

Is there a template tag?

Yes, there is. It’s available as iperss() and takes two parameters. First (obligatory): A string containing the item. Second (optional): An associative array containing some options. Please refer to the built-in documentation.

Is ipeRSS multi widget / multi shortcode capable?

Yes, both. You can ad as many instances as you want. You can even style them different by using an additional CSS class that can be entered in the widget’s configuration or commited via shortcode parameter or template tag option.

Is it possible to hide the widget from users who are not logged in?

Yes, it is. Simply tick the according widget setup option or provide the shortcode/function parameter setting this option.

Is ipeRSS translation ready?

Yes, it is. An fully functional example translation (German) including .mo file and .po file is shipped with ipeRSS. Additionally an Esperanto translation done by Kalle Kniivilä (thanks!) is available by default.

Why is ipeRSS called ipeRSS?

The very first versions of ipeRSS fetched the ipernity RSS images feed. Now it uses the ipernity API. Well … this API returns the RSS feed so basically the name still is correct.

Whats with the wording?

  • “Widget” – The thing(s) in the sidebar that you can configure via the widget setup area of wordpress
  • “Shortcode” – A piece of code that you can enter directly into the wordpress blog post/page editor
  • “Template tag” – A PHP function that provides an interface to ipeRSS (actually the wording isn’t correct, but i use it anyway g)
  • “Item” – Either an ipernity user ID, or a group ID, or a tag, or a combination of it that will be used to tell ipeRSS what to display
  • “Instance” – Either an ipeRSS widget, or the result of a shortcode or a template tag.

Who did that icon used in the menu and at the homepage?

I did. If you can do better, please contact me.

What is the Boltzmann constant?

According to Wikipedia the Boltzmann constant (k) is the physical constant relating energy at the particle level with temperature observed at the bulk level. It can be calculated by dividing the gas constant by the Avogardo constant. And yes, this question has nothing to do with ipeRSS ;)
