[campsite-dev] Re: [campsite-core] printbox-0.1 is here, almost
  • this is great, great work john.

    i have two things.
    - the default behavior should in my opinion be related to individual
    articles, not the whole issue/page/section (how does it work anyway -
    with issue Id, or with all the links to article.tpl from the home
    page?). i mean, adding all articles is fine, and should be there
    somewhere, but i would like to have an icon next to each article that
    would allow me to add it to the printbox. when article is added to the
    box, the icon disappears - this is maybe some client side scripting for
    future development.
    - second, not really the techie stuff but: because you can DISPLAY (open
    the page) from the Printbox, and not just PRINT, the thing should be
    called something like Prints/Clippings (box), or something like that.

    thank you,
    braja

  • Hi Braja

    There is a configuration directive that you can set to turn off
    automatic adding of all articles from the current issue.

    The articles in the current issue are defined by the content of the RSS
    feed - you set a URL in the config file. Or a bespoke system can be
    implemented using the printboxinterface extension class.

    My implementation deliberately steered clear of direct interfacing with
    campsite, however this would be simple via the extension class I
    mentioned, or else if you have an RSS feed system in place or planned
    then I would suggest that as the preferred method.

    I don't mind what you call it really. The session in which the stuff is
    stored is limited, so it's no good for storing stuff longer term, so I
    wouldn't call it a 'clippings box' because to me that suggests it lasts
    a bit longer. Maybe that's something that needs to be added though, I
    don't know.

  • The print box or print cart is an OK working name. And it may even stick. I
    could certainly live with it, but if anyone has better suggestions, please

  • Hi all

    I'm going to be off-air for a few weeks so if anyone has any issues with
    printbox please let me know asap (by friday at latest). Hopefully you
    have been able to take a look at it.

  • Brajo,

    Can you make the final tests and additions to John's howto soonish? So that
    we can bundle the print box/printing basket with the next release of
    Campsite?

    What needs to be done is primarily to give an answer to this:

    "My implementation deliberately steered clear of direct interfacing with
    campsite, however this would be simple via the extension class I
    mentioned, or else if you have an RSS feed system in place or planned
    then I would suggest that as the preferred method."

    And we need to agree on a name.

  • Question: in index.php I commented smarty config (we have it in include path),
    but there are 2 more directories below, that are not described in Readme.txt
    and evidently are connected to your local installation. Shall I change them
    according to our website?

  • Hi Ondra

    Hope the following helps.

    Here is the index.php file as I have it:

    > # include trailing slash. comment line out to use default
    > define('PB_SMARTY_DIR','c:/cygwin/var/www/pye2.dyndns.org/include/smarty-2-6-6/');]

    This is your smarty code location

    >
    > # include trailing slash. comment line out to use default
    > define('PB_TEMPLATE_DIR',
    > 'c:/cygwin/var/www/pye2.dyndns.org/html/printbox/smartytemplates/');

    This is the TEMPLATE_DIR for Smarty - it's where all the printbox
    templates need to be residing.

    >
    > # include trailing slash. comment line out to use default
    > define('PB_COMPILE_DIR',
    > 'c:/cygwin/var/www/pye2.dyndns.org/html/printbox/smartytemplates_c/');

    This is the COMPILE_DIR where compiled templates must be stored (needs
    to be writable)

    This is where you need to install MAGPIE on your system, if you haven't
    installed it anywhere else.

    > define('PB_RSS_URL','http://news.bbc.co.uk/rss/newsonline_uk_edition/front_page/rss091.xml');

    That's just a URL where your RSS feed is available. You can
    alternatively code up some changes to the printboxinterface class.

  • I tried to install magpierss and it does not work on our server.
    1) FreeBSD changed port structure and I am unable to upgradeports unless
    upgrading to 5.3 version.
    2) 5.3 version needs specially patched Campsite (2.1.6rc1), versions below are
    not working. However we are using 2.5 in TOL, and it needs to upgrade CS
    first.
    3) Upgrade of FreeBSD 5.2.1 to 5.3 needs to recompile all installed packages.

    Due to these reasons it worth to be conservative with TOL site for now.
    I vote for printbox to be aviable as separate module, or let me know how to
    install printbox without makpierss.

    When you talk about 'ports', that's a BSD thing right? MagpieRSS is pur
    PHP so you can just download it and install it in your php include path.
    No need for a binary version or anything.

    But you don't have to install it. If you want to use the RSS importer as
    the means by which you download the list of stories in the latest
    edition, it's a quick method doing it, with the nice side-effect of
    meaning that your content is then syndicatable etc.

    But you can do it another way. The printboxinterface class encapsulates
    the method by which the list of stories is obtained. In this case, you
    would extend the printboxinterface class and create an SQL-squery
    replacement for the following, perhaps:

    > /**
    > Add items from the current or another specified edition
    > */
    > function addEdition($edition=NULL){
    > //die(MAGPIE_DIR.'rss_fetch.inc');
    > require_once(MAGPIE_DIR.'rss_fetch.inc');

    > }
    >
    > $_SESSION['PB_EDITION']=true;
    >
    > return true;
    > }

    Note that the PB_EDITION flag is required to be set to ensure that all
    the titles are not again automatically added if they have just been
    manually removed by the user.

  • Thanks John and Ondra,

    I just couldn't figure out how to configure the thing so it works with
    campsite directly, rather than with RSS feed.

    Can you give us some hints?

    Thanks in advance,
    Braja

  • Have a look at this class, which would be called
    campsiteprintbox.inc.php. It would need some changing of course.

    require_once("printboxinterface.inc.php");

    class CampsitePrintBox extends PrintBoxInterface{

    function CampsitePrintBox(){
    $this->PrintBoxInterface();
    }

    function addEdition($edition=NULL){
    // printing past editions is not supported by the GUI yet but
    could be fairly easily

    // somehow you need to get the ID of the current edition
    $edition=3;

    // the do query of your campsite database -- I don't know the
    structure of it but maybe it's like
    $sql="SELECT sectionid,sectiontitle,articletitle,articleid FROM
    articles WHERE section=".mysql_escape($edition);
    $res=mysql_query($sql,...);

    while($row=mysql_fetch_assoc($res)){

    $url=$this->makeArticleURL($edition,$row['sectionid'],$row['articleid']);

    $this->addPrintBoxItem($url,$row['articletitle']);
    }

    $_SESSION['PB_EDITION']=true;
    return true;
    }

    function makeArticleURL($edition,$section,$article){
    return
    "http://".$_SERVER['SERVER_NAME']."/look/xxxx.tpl?edition=".$edition."§ion=".$section."&article=".$article;
    }
    }

    In index.php uncomment the following line

    //define('PB_INTERFACE_CLASS','PrintBoxInterfaceCampsite');

    and change it to

    define('PB_INTERFACE_CLASS','CampsitePrintBox');

    Hopefully that works ok.
