There is many JavaScripts, instead of PHP :)

Hi,

Please don't bump. It's against forum rules. We are trying to get to the posts in the order that they have been posted, so actually you only move to the back of the queue when you bump.

In the meantime, though, community, please jump in and give feedback!

Hi,

This works really well for me, except for the tags ... they tried to go to my local site instead of to the del.icio.us site.

OK. We took a look at your module. One one of my test environments (my local host), this worked great!

On the other one of my test environments (accessible to the Internet), this plugin did not work, at all, in fact, I get this error message, and a blank screen:

Code: Select all

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in D:\VirtualWebsites\JoomlaPlace\JoomlaGHOP\modules\mod_delicious_feeds\tmpl\default.php on line 23


If you want to access the site, let me know and I'll activate it, again. Or, if you have some ideas and want me to try, again, let me know.

Thanks!
Amy :)

Thanks, mcsmom, stupid bug :)

AmyStephen, was module uploaded correctly? "Parse error: syntax error" - this can be either everywhere or nowhere...

When I uninstalled and then tried to reinstall I got an error message saying that the directory was already being used.

Turned out the module files were still there and the module also was still in the module manager despite having been uninstalled.  So you need to check the uninstall.


Also, make sure to remove the language file.

Tags work great now. :)

Scroll clear to the end of this error code to find the specific location of the error.

Code: Select all

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in D:\VirtualWebsites\JoomlaPlace\JoomlaGHOP\modules\mod_delicious_feeds\tmpl\default.php on line 23


Let me know what you'd like me to try.

Thanks!

Not certain why you pasted that code. I do believe that is the line referenced, if that is what you are asking.

Do you mean this directive?

; Allow the tags are recognized.
; NOTE: Using short tags should be avoided when developing applications or
; libraries that are meant for redistribution, or deployment on PHP
; servers which are not under your control, because short tags may not
; be supported on the target server. For portable, redistributable code,
; be sure not to use short tags.
short_open_tag = Off

Excellent work! You figured out the problem and fixed it! And, you are one step closer to running on all of the various versions of PHP that Joomla! supports, beginning with php v. 4.3.10. I gain more and more respect for the abilities of the Joomla! developers the more I work with various extensions. It's not easy finding that narrow path of allowable code. Again, good job.

++++

The parameters appear to be working correctly, as are the links.

It would be nice to enable the favicons that print to the left of the post links - or leave them off.

Be careful to not start sections  (ex.
and
) if that section is not to be included in the output.

I was unable to get the enable URL info working. I entered http://joomla.org and just joomla.org and did not receive any output.

It's looking very good. I'll look for your post.

Amy

Might want to add a heading for the URL info section and include it after fans.

The URL info links are to the local site, not to del.icio.us.

My posts


My tags


My network


Fans

 


del.icio.us I am AmyStephen on del.icio.us

add AmyStephen to your del.icio.us network! Add me to your network




Almost there,
Amy :)

Looks great! I approve - I think this gives people just about anything they could want out of Del.icio.us and it works great!

Get it posted at Google - we'll try to get a second Judge's opinion. Elin might already approve.

Thanks, very much, for your efforts and patience and hard work on both of these extensions.
