I just downloaded my new feed for all 2.0 -- oh boy oh boy oh boy!

I tried to register it with my version 1.0 key and it would not accept it.
I will not post the key here in case it is valid and I am doing something wrong.

Serial Number: 114129
order number: E063006743120

please e-mail me with the correct info.

Thanks

PostForum: Beta Releases (FFA Win)   Posted: Fri Sep 08, 2006 11:09 am   Subject: upload problem with down FTP server
I tried to upload when the FTP server was down (I knew it should be down, but hoped it was not)
At any rate feedForAll could not connect, and just sat there. I hit cancel, but nothing. Did it again after a minute or two, nothing. I waited for a while, nothing. I finally had to ctrl-alt-del to kill the program.

Add that to the bug list for beta2 I guess.

Where are you getting that from:

a. viewing the link field in FeedForAll
b. biewing the source code of your feed's XML file
c. a link in the HTML source code on your webpage
d. part of an include statement in the source code of your webpage's HTML
e. a link given by running rss2html.php with the buildUrl option



The first example is what I typed into the Link Box.
After saving the file, and reopeining it in FeedforAll it becomes the second or third.
I can see it in the link Box, it is in the XML source, and using the php conversion, it goes into the web page as the link. So the answer I guess is a,b,c

The blog page is http://spencerfamily.gig4free.com/matthewBlog.html Assuming the server is working (gig4free is still in beta) you'll see a side that is "previous posts" there I use the php script to pull the titles and dates of the entries in the feed and convert them to html. I use the link to generate a dynamic page that hass all the blog entries on it. They I use the #[title] to anchor it to the specific article.

For whatever reason the link created the page okay( but the %23 stuff messes up the anchor). I can send you a copy of the XML file if you wish. I thnk I noticed this on beta1 but just didn't bother with it since there we so many other porblems. It's really hard to notice if you look only in the link feid in feedforall since it starts to look like a long string of characters.

Thanks

There are a couple problems here acutally:
My link is supposed to be this:
http://spencerfamily.gig4free.com/rss2html.php?TEMPLATE=http://spencerfamily.gig4free.com/rss/fullPageTemplate.html&XMLFILE=http://spencerfamily.gig4free.com/rss/orangRecneps.xml%23HowInTheWorld

but it will become:
http://spencerfamily.gig4free.com/rss2html.php?TEMPLATE=http://spencerfamily.gig4free.com/rss/fullPageTemplate.html&XMLFILE=http://spencerfamily.gig4free.com/rss/orangRecneps.xml?TEMPLATE=http://spencerfamily.gig4free.com/rss/fullPageTemplate.html&XMLFILE=http://spencerfamily.gig4free.com/rss/orangRecneps.xml%23HowInTheWorld
or:
http://spencerfamily.gig4free.com/rss2html.php?TEMPLATE=http://spencerfamily.gig4free.com/rss/fullPageTemplate.html&XMLFILE=http://spencerfamily.gig4free.com/rss/orangRecneps.xml?TEMPLATE=http://spencerfamily.gig4free.com/rss/fullPageTemplate.html&XMLFILE=http://spencerfamily.gig4free.com/rss/orangRecneps.xml?TEMPLATE=http://spencerfamily.gig4free.com/rss/fullPageTemplate.html&XMLFILE=http://spencerfamily.gig4free.com/rss/orangRecneps.xml%23HowInTheWorld
or worse.

Apparently this does not kill the link to the overall page, although I cannot imagine why.

the more serious problem is this

my # becomes %23. So when I make my link dadada.xml&#35WhatIsThis
I get dadada.xml&%2335;WhatIsThis in the XML code. I can see how this would normally not be a problem except that I use my title as part of my link.

I use it as an anchor in the template. So it links and make one page that includes all my previous posts, and uses the anchor to find the exact spot in the page. It's the same concept as putting a table of contents on a long page that links you to the correct section/paragraph or back to the top.

At any rate, %23 does not get it done. I need &#35 or simply #. Any way to fix it without manually editing my code ...

PostForum: Program Support (FFA Win)   Posted: Fri Jul 14, 2006 11:25 am   Subject: Tee hee Hee, Never mind
I got to looking a little closer at what is actually going on and correct me if I'm wrong, but it will leave the cose that I type in for the most part. Since in the XML file itself the program parses what I type turning it into character codes & and so forth.

So as not to confuse the hello (minus o) out of the user, It decodes the characters in the on screen display. Quite smart thinking actually. However, it would be nice if it would simply leave decode and not interpret.

I like to use <p></p> and not <br /> because I use css and have much more control over the text with <p></p>. I finally figured out how to trick the program into making <p></p> work by adding a class statement to it (or any other tag) <p class="mainText">yadda</p><p class="mainText">yadda2</p>.

This is right in the XML file, but on screen it looks like this
<p class="mainText">yadda<br>
<br>
<p class="mainText">yadda2<br>
<br>

That's just wrong on so many levels. I guess what I'm asking for is a new feature in the 2.0 realase to include decoding of the <p></p> tag as is. Another nice feature would be the inclusion of XHTML standards. XHTML as a standard is only 7 years old I can't understand why hardly anyone supports it.

Thanks guys and gals!

I posted a while back asking how to shut off the HTML insersions and changes in the program. No one has posted how to do this. Please post this solution.

If you will not tell me how to shut off the auto-HTML can I send you back the CD and get atleast a partial refund although I would prefer a full refund. I found a competing product that has about the same look and feel as feed for all, except it allows the user to select whatever encoding they want (VITAL) And does not auto insert any HTML so what I type is what I get. (and Yes it has a WYSIWYG HTML editor for those who want to use it.) In otherwords -- the other product is exactly what I want.

I feel like I got duped into buying a program to try to gain access to a php script that does not even work (and yes I downloaded the latest version version of the mixer) only to find that the program does not run the same regstered as it does unregistered. Frankly the changes that the program makes to my code make me angry, and I'm tired of it.

Please refund me, or tell me how to turn off the auto edit.

Is it possible to have seperate images for each different item in the feed?

It takes very little knowlege of html. Simply place an image tag in your post.
<img src="myImageDirectory/myImageFile.jpg" alt="My Image" > This will make your image literally part of you post.

You will however have to upload the images seprately using ftp or whatever upload method you prefer.

PostForum: Program Support (FFA Win)   Posted: Thu Jul 06, 2006 6:13 pm   Subject: XHTML 1.0 Standards Vs HTML 4.X
The evaluation version and registered version of FFA are exactly the same. I don't see how it could have worked one way, and then after entering your registration key, it worked another.

That's what I thought, but for some reason, all the posts I made in under the evaluation version are exactly as I left them, once registered, it changed them. If I look at an old post it changed it as well. I didn't know if there is an update or something.

One other annoyance is the fact it won't let me use <p></p> It converts them to <br> as well. Is there a way to turn off the auto changes and let me leave my code the way it is? To be honest, I'd prefer to do it that way since I am so anal about Valid XHTML.

Thanks for the help

What problem are you having with rssMerge.php?

Jim

I can't get anything to come up -- I gave up after an hour of staring at blank screens. I followed the directions explictly, but it helped not. I looked through the forum (which is pretty well empty) and there was nothing that could help me there. If I was truly looking to fix rssMerge, I would make a post in that topic since that is the place to put it.

I found a solution to the problem (I am using feedshakr or something like that)

Right now all I need to know is how to fix the HTML and turn off the automatic changes. Once I got that fixed I spend some time with the other scripts and see if I can figure it out.

Thanks again!

PostForum: Program Support (FFA Win)   Posted: Wed Jul 05, 2006 5:41 pm   Subject: XHTML 1.0 Standards Vs HTML 4.X
I write web pages in XHTML, the real difference between it and HTML is that every tag must be closed. every<p> requires </p> and even tags such as <img> and <br> become <img /> and <br />. Here's my problem.

I used the Demo version for 30 days -- I liked it alot, after I registered it I don't like it so much. In the demo version the editor would leave my code alone. If I typed <br /> it left it. Now that it's registered that is not the case. Every <br /> is automatically changed to <br> when I change to a different item or tab. This has the side effect of breaking my validation for XHTML, and since I built the page in XHTML it is very cumbersom to rebuild the pages in HTML to try to get validated.

So here's the questions
1. How do I cange to default markup to XHTML?
2. In the event that there is no solution to number 1 how do I turn the auto markup off?

I definately like rss2html, but I cannot get rssmerge to work. Thanks for the good software (I'll change it to great once this issue is taken care of.)
