An example rss feed I'd like to use is

http://rss.api.ebay.com/ws/rssapi?FeedName=Search
Results&siteId=3&language=en-GB&output=RSS20&copagenum
=1&fss=0&saprclo=&fscl=1ZQ1&fsop=1&fsoo=1&saslop=1&saslt
=2&catref=C6&coaction=compare&sorefinesearch=1&sacur=
0&saaff=afdefault&ftrv=1&ftrt=1&sacat=98952&from=
R10&fcl=3&ga10244=10425&satitle=%28%22sailing+dinghy
%22%2C+cleat%2C+block%2C+pulley%2C+sail%2C+sails%2C+
rope%29+-strand+-rya+-ski+-stainless+-anchor+-mooring
+-yachts+-yacht&saprchi=&coentrypage=search&frpp=200

(I've soft returned the above so it would fit)

some 470 characters long.
the Url is also very long at 517 Characters,

http://search.ebay.co.uk/search/search.dll?sofocus=
bs&sbrftog=1&fcl=3&fss=0&fscl=1&fscl=1&frpp=200&
sorefinesearch=1&catref=C6&saslt=2&sacur=0&from=

1%26saslc%3D3&sadis=200&fpos=nr34+7hu&ga10244=
10425&ftrt=1&ftrv=1&saprclo=&saprchi=


There must be a reader that can use this rss otherwise why would ebay generate it?

I guess I could put the page in an I-frame but would really like the rss to work.

I'm trying to link ebay rss feeds onto my site.

I've tried xmline and planet but both store the rss line as a 255 varchar unfortunately the rss url from ebay, depending on the search parameters, can be over 300.

The end result is I can only run a rss if the rss url is under 255 characters.

Is it possible to modify the table to accommodate longer rss url's, as the max for varchar is 255
or is there another way of skinning this cat?

I was given this the other day which did it for 2.0.14

Insert in theme.html in place of the center column.

Quote:

<td id="centercolumn">
<!-- Display center blocks if any -->
<{if $xoops_showcblock == 1}>
<table cellspacing="0">
<tr>
<td id="centerLcolumn">
<!-- Start center-left blocks loop -->
<{foreach item=block from=$xoops_clblocks}>
<{include file="default/theme_blockcenter_l.html"}>
<{/foreach}>
<!-- End center-left blocks loop -->
</td>
<td id="centerRcolumn">
<!-- Start center-right blocks loop -->
<{foreach item=block from=$xoops_crblocks}>
<{include file="default/theme_blockcenter_r.html"}>
<{/foreach}>
<!-- End center-right blocks loop -->
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td id="centerCcolumn" colspan="2">
<!-- Start center-center blocks loop -->
<{foreach item=block from=$xoops_ccblocks}>
<{include file="default/theme_blockcenter_c.html"}>
<{/foreach}>
<!-- End center-center blocks loop -->
</td>
</tr><{/if}>
</table>
<!-- End display center blocks -->
<div id="content"><{$xoops_contents}></div>

<{if $xoBlocks.page_bottomleft or $xoBlocks.page_bottomright or $xoBlocks.page_bottomcenter}>
<table cellspacing="0">
<{if $xoBlocks.page_bottomcenter}>
<tr>
<td id="centerCcolumn" colspan="2">
<{foreach from=$xoBlocks.page_bottomcenter item=block}><{include file="default/theme_blockcenter_c.html"}><{/foreach}>
</td>
</tr>
<{/if}>
<{if $xoBlocks.page_bottomleft or $xoBlocks.page_bottomright}>
<tr>

<td id="centerLcolumn">
<{foreach from=$xoBlocks.page_bottomleft item=block}><{include file="default/theme_blockcenter_l.html"}><{/foreach}>
</td>

<td id="centerRcolumn">
<{foreach from=$xoBlocks.page_bottomright item=block}><{include file="default/theme_blockcenter_r.html"}><{/foreach}>
</td>
</tr>
<{/if}>
</table>
<{/if}>
</td>


The issue is that in newbb it loses the left column.
Not sure why yet.

Perhaps a guru out there can help?

Ah, will that rss module work with 2.0.14 or should I wait for the new release you announced

Funny enough I was just browsing your great site and having a nose about.

I noticed you rss feeds and wondered what version XOOPS yopu were running as I've not got a rss module to work properly with 2.0.14 yet

Many thanks,

Was worried I'd missed something really simple,

I'm running 4.0.14

Using the default theme in the non module front page how do I get the center right and center left blocks to appear above the center block.

What I'm after is,

center left, center right
Center top
Center bottom
Bottom left, bottom right

audio chat & custom block

Has anyone managed to incoporate an audio chat facility on their XOOPS site?

I gather there is a skype module but it does not appear to be that great, are there any others?

Also given that you can run php and html in a custom block it should be possible to create your own variation of the standard module blocks.

For example instead of having a block for forum posts, another for latest news and another for comments would it be possible to grab the relevant tags from the templates and put them in a custom block thereby creating a single combined latest info block?

It largely depends on what you want to achieve.

At the moment you have the default theme with a couple of css changes but you have not touched the layout or Theme.html

For examplehttp://www.suffolkscb.org/http://www.milanesfoils.co.uk/ andhttp://www.mcnamara-sails.co.uk/ are all based on the same default theme with just a few things cut and pasted around the theme.html and a little messing with the css.

The trick (if you have as lttle knowledge as me) is to try one thing and then go and see the effect and then by trial and a lot of error you end up with something you want.

I've just been working on a modified Theme by Xoopstuner at www.javelinuk.com just a few tweaks here and there go to make quite a bit of difference.

Have fun
