PostForum: FutureRSS (Automatic Content Publisher)   Posted: Wed Sep 03, 2008 11:43 am   Subject: I don't think this is working - what did I do wrong?
Well - something is wrong with how I've set this up. As I mentioned in my previous post, I am trying to set up three podcasts. I have created some test feeds and pointed the php script to them. Here's the latest:


http://media.hiskids.net/paws/RSSFilter/VPVPodcast.php

I wanted to test the future publishing features so I set a group of items to publish at 11:20AM, 11:30, 12:00PM etc and they all dumped at once.

What am I doing wrong here?

Thanks!

Hi,

I have three new podcasts that I would like to have Feed For All manage using the future publishing features. You helped me get my original podcast up and running (http://media.hiskids.net/paws/RSSFilter/PNTpodcast.php), but I have run into a wall configuring the new podcast scripts.

I figured since the original podcast above was working well, that I could just copy the original php script and change out the data and include the specifics for the new podcast (showing 20 days of content instead of 12 weeks like the original feed). But I don't seem to be having luck getting the new podcasts to list content this way. Do I need separate instances of the RSSFilter script for each new podcast? Here is the address for one of the new podcasts's scripts. http://media.hiskids.net/paws/RSSFilter/IFLDailyPodcast.php

Can you take a look and let me know if I am ready to point FeedBurner to the new address?

I would like to be able to use the FutureRSS script so that I can schedule my podcasts weeks in advance. But I also want to only display 14 days of content at a time beginning with today and going back 14 days. I know that FutureRSS will help me do the former while FilterRSS will help me do the latter.

My question is what do I have to do to get both functions in one PHP script. MacSupport helped me do this with another podcast of mine, but we didn't start from scratch as I am having to do now so any help you can lend would be much appreciated!

PostForum: RSSFilter (Creates a filtered RSS feed)   Posted: Tue Sep 18, 2007 4:43 pm   Subject: Problem with RSSFilter Script
Hi,

I am trying to apply a filter script to a podcast. I want the script to filter out any items more than 14 days old - I only want two weeks of content available at a time.

When I test the script, I have two weeks of content that shows - including today EXCEPT for yesterday's content. I don't understand why yesterday would be filtered out but everything else would pass through. For example - here's what the test shows:

USING Item: Imprisoned and Forgotten, Part 3 - Tuesday, September 18, 2007
USING Item: Message Mate-Imprisoned and Forgotten, Part 3 - Tuesday, September 18, 2007
NOT Using: Imprisoned and Forgotten, Part 2 - Monday, September 17, 2007
NOT Using: Message Mate-Imprisoned and Forgotten, Part 2 - Monday, September 17, 2007
USING Item: A Joyful Plan That Cannot Fail, Part 3 - Wednesday, September 05, 2007
USING Item: Message Mate - A Joyful Plan That Cannot Fail, Part 3 - Wednesday, September 05, 2007
USING Item: Favored Son, Hated Brother, Part 1- Thursday, September 06, 2007
USING Item: Message Mate - Favored Son, Hated Brother, Part 1- Thursday, September 06, 2007

etc.

Can someone check the script to make sure I didn't bungle something here:

Here's the script:

http://media.hiskids.net/paws/iflpodcast/rssfilter/IFLDailyPodcast.php

Here's the XML feed:

http://208.109.97.117/podcasts/IFLDaily/IFLDailyPodcast.xml

Thanks!

Jim,

Thanks for your assistance. Okay - I pasted the script above into a text editor without additional Windows formatting (I think). Anyway - I want 12 weeks of content to show instead of 3 and changed all instances of that variable accordingly. I then renamed the php file as the same as my xml file (overwriting what had been my futureRSS file).

Since I currently have less than 12 weeks of items to display, I tested at 3 weeks and 12 and everything seems to work well I think. So my next podcast and enclosure items should publish around midnight Saturday.

If it's not an imposition, would you check it too to make sure it looks formatted correctly?

Many thanks!

PostForum: FutureRSS (Automatic Content Publisher)   Posted: Mon Jul 30, 2007 3:56 pm   Subject: Okay - last question
Jim,

Thanks for the quick reply. I have some confusion. The FilterRSS will provide the functionality I need to future schedule my podcasts from here on out - so I don't need FutureRSS any longer - I simply enter the future dates into the FeedforAll interface as before?

I will launch a new podcast in the next few weeks and want to do the same type of thing - limit the number of live items and schedule into the future, do I just use the filter file and set it up similarly?

I will clean up the formatting on the filter file - thanks for pointing that out.

PostForum: FutureRSS (Automatic Content Publisher)   Posted: Mon Jul 30, 2007 3:04 pm   Subject: Regarding FilterRSS
Thanks for your assistance! I have a question about the logical order of the files:

I read through the RSSFilter materials and configured a filter so that I only show 12 weeks of items at a time. The filter has the podcast address in it (actually the FutureRSS script), so do I give the FilterRSS file address to Feedburner? Essentially does it come in line after my FutureRSS file, which comes after my podcast xml file?

You can see the filter file here:

http://media.hiskids.net/paws/RSSFilter/pntpodcast12weeks.php

My FutureRSS file is here:

http://media.hiskids.net/paws/pntpodcast.php

My XML is here:

Hi,

I finally got FutureRSS to work and I've got podcasts scheduled through September, so thanks for a great tool.

I read on the forum that if I want to limit the content that is shown, I have to use RSSMesh - which I am still trying to figure out how to make work for me. I saw someone ask in the forum if a setting for an "expiration date" might be built into a future version of FutureRSS/FeedforAll, but I didn't see a response - so I thought I'd raise it again.

Since I'm not a programmer, having a layman's FeedforAll user interface to allow me to set both the future publish and expiration dates for each item would be really helpful.

There are plenty of radio broadcasters like me who are making their programs available as a podcasts. But unlike some podcasters, we want to only allow a certain window of podcasts so that we can drive sales of archived shows.

Thanks,

Eric

Everything is spelled properly... so why can't I get the php file to download when I enter the address into my browser? What could cause that?

PostForum: FutureRSS (Automatic Content Publisher)   Posted: Tue May 01, 2007 9:06 am   Subject: FutureRSS and FeedBurner
I have updated my PHP script with the name of my XML file. I have renamed the PHP file to match the name of the feed. Now I am supposed to use the php file as the feed address. But I use Feedburner, with a unique FeedBurner address. So I am now trying to update FeedBurner by changing the original feed address to file with the PHP extension and I get an error that FeedBurner can find the file. Error getting URL: 404 - Not Found.

Here are the locations of my files:

http://208.109.97.117/podcasts/PNT/PNTpodcast.xml

http://208.109.97.117/podcasts/PNT/PNTpodcast.php

http://feeds.feedburner.com/97/kkvs

What is the best way to integrate the future dating features I want into a Feedburner feed?

Thanks,

Eric
