Limit items in RDF feeds?


Anonymous

First, I think it's really great how easy it is to set up blocks to get RDF feeds. Is there any way to limit the number of items that are listed in the block display? For some sites, I may only want to display the three latest new stories.

In lib-common.php, search for the function named COM_rdfImport(). You will see code that reads the entire RDF file and counts the number of 'item' entries in there. After that, this 'for' statement for ($i = 1; $i <= $di; $i++) will loop over all the items and add them to the portal block. So, instead of $di simply put the max. number you want in there (of course you need to check that you have at least that many items in the RDF file ...). bye, Dirk

Thanks Dirk,

A Would Like feature would be to allow an option to be specified when the block is created.
Just something to add to the feature request list.

Kind of off topic but, have you noticed that some RDF feeds have backslashes? Instead of what's you will get what\s. I assume this too is in the COM_rdfImport? Any ideas on how to fix this?

Sounds like a job for stripslashes() ...

bye, Dirk

Anonymous is right, I\'m missing the possibility to limit the number of imported rdf feed titles too. It may be possible to change the code but why not include this feature in the admin settings? It would be much easier and more comfortable, especially for users with little or no programming experience. It would be also cool to be able to set the number of titles for every rdf feed individually (if you have more than one) ...
