Did not anybody comment :?: :o

Congratulations, Smix.
Really a great mod, i didn't test it because i'm using another similar mod in my forum.(lastrss ticker)

But i'll test it in localhost to see how this works.

Thank you!

Hi

Cheers for this mod.
One question how do I slow down the speed the text goes across the screen?

I did not install and even did test this, but in lastrss.html code, we have this:

Code: Select all

<marquee style="height:20px;line-height:20px;<!-- IF SAFARI -->position:relative;top:-20px;margin-left:87px;<!-- ENDIF -->" onmouseover="stop();" onmouseout="start();">
Marquee is a html tag, so, many things can do with it, you can learn something here:

And to slow down, in this page:
http://www.htmlcodetutorial.com/_MARQUE ... DELAY.html

Thanks Chico for your fast reply ;)

This is one of the points, that I want to improve ... If you find some good settings for speed of scrolling, please contact me ;) ... But I have to say ... In final version, marquee will be (hopefully) replaced by some javascript scroller or ticker ...

Why I´m using marquee ?
From lastRSS manual wrote:Notice : LastRSS agregator is using HTML tag „marquee“ which is deprecated for XHTML and causes invalidity of phpBB´s HTML code. Marquee is used because I didn´t find better solution for viewing „big“ number of news items on „small“ area like it is if marquee is used (the number of items is currently unlimited, because you can view as many RSS feeds you want and for each of them up to 10 news items).

I´ve searched and tested many javascript marquee replacement scripts and news tickers, but none of them worked in all browsers or wasn´t under licence suitable for releasing under GNU GPL.
If you´ll find some, please contact me. Thank you.
2 Chico : You are welcome ! ... As I see, discussion started there finally too :) But this is not the only topic for this MOD (startrekguide.com topic was actually very active last two weeks :D)

Hi
I tried adding scrollamount & scrolldelay but the values I'd tried were nowhere near the required levels.
Given up fiddling for tonight with the settings below:

Code: Select all

<marquee style="height:20px;line-height:20px;<!-- IF SAFARI -->position:relative;top:-20px;margin-left:87px;<!-- ENDIF -->" onmouseover="stop();" onmouseout="start();" scrolldelay="100" scrollamount="5">     
				<!-- BEGIN lastrssrow -->
				<!-- IF lastrssrow.HASITEMS -->
				| <a style="font-weight:bold;" href="{lastrssrow.LINK}" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">{lastrssrow.TITLE}</a>
				<!-- BEGIN itemsrow -->
				&bull; <a href="{lastrssrow.itemsrow.LINK}" title="{lastrssrow.itemsrow.TITLE}" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">{lastrssrow.itemsrow.TITLE}</a>
				<!-- END itemsrow -->
				<!-- ELSE -->
	&bull; {LASTRSS_NOTAVAILABLE}
	<!-- ENDIF -->
				<!-- END lastrssrow --></marquee>
HTH

I think the best settings was about delay 60 and amount 5 or lower ...

Btw. I have probably found good replacement for marquee ... But it´s not a marquee ... I´m still searching and testing ...

I just installed this in localhost, working fine.

I'm gonna test the marquee delay function and i'll back to report.

As i said, i'm using in my liveboard, another mod, and this modder use a javascript scroller...

And: Thank you for the mod. Looks great!

EDIT

Worked pretty fine in here! ;)

Code: Select all

        <img src="images/lastrss.png" alt="{LASTRSS_TITLE}" style="float:left; margin:auto;" />
        <marquee SCROLLDELAY=500 style="height:20px;line-height:20px;<!-- IF SAFARI -->position:relative;top:-20px;margin-left:87px;<!-- ENDIF -->" onmouseover="stop();" onmouseout="start();">
I saw in your site, smix, the new beta3 style test. I liked in this new way. Good Luck!

Nice, I installed the beta2 and everything is working but when I choose German rss feed, every ä and ö isn't displayed as it should be.

I also saw that you added a title to the prosilver template file, is there a possibility to do the same for the Subsilver2 template file?

Very, very nice mod, I really love it :)

Hello Saaiberke,
thank you, I´ll have a look at it closely ;) ... Please send me (or edit previous message) the full url of RSS which has this problems ... Thank you (I´ll test it ...)
About subsilver2, ahh ... I´m sorry, I forgot to make any edits for subsilver2, because I´m already thinking about better solution for viewing the news ... No marquee (but some kind of javascript marquee replacement or some news ticker ...) ... That´s why I only edited the one style ... But if you´ll have a look at lastrss.html (@ prosilver & subsilver2) you can use the template variables in the other template ;) ...
Beta2 package "only" fixed the bugs found in Beta1

Thank you ;)

2 Chico : Thank you again ;) ... And as you said - I have some ideas about it ... ;)

This is the URL with the problem. :)

I already used the subsilver template on acidtech, it works but doesn't look nice ;) But no problem, I can wait for the development of your idea's with javascript and so :) :)

Thanks for a great mod!

Grtz,

Nic

2 saaiberke: Thank you ... Please, copy this file to your root file than tell me the results ... (/includes/class_lastrss.php required)

I have actually tested your feed, but it works perfectly on my demo board ... :(

Code: Select all

FOPEN exists and works!
CURL exists and works!
ICONV is not available!
It has something to do with this iconv, hasn't it?

On another board (other webhost) I also tried it and there I get

Code: Select all

FOPEN exists and works!
CURL exists but doesn´t works!
ICONV exists! and works!
In that feed there is no problem.

Grtz,

Nic

I´m actually thinking about what to do ... Yeah, it´s about iconv unavailability - try to contact your webhosting to enable it ...
