Post BB Code
For some strange reason this topic had dissapeared and also my username "diabloNL" didn't exist no more. :?


Anyway, here my question (again) :P

I have a feed that contains BB code. And this is how they show up in Awasu:

Quote:
Eerder gingen er geruchten rond dat SEGA de PlayStation Portable gedeeltelijk ging verlaten en ging focussen op de Nintendo DS. Deze geruchten zijn verdwenen door een post bij Wired die aangaf dat SEGA de plaats ging vullen van andere ontwikkelaars. Image SEGA komt deze zomer met minstens zes games naar de PSP. We kunnen dus nog enkele goede games van SEGA verwachten.


Feed: CLICK

Is there a way to show the images or to strip the BB code from the feed?

Thanks!


BTW: I bought a Pro version of your software. :wink:

The best way would be to contact the feed publisher and get them to fix it on their server. There's little point in including BB code in a feed since no feed reader is going to understand it.

Failing that, it wouldn't be too hard to write a quick plugin that did it. It downloads the feed, strips out BB code (or converts it into proper HTML) and then passes the fixed-up feed on to Awasu.

Thanks :-) You get a whole lot more in the Pro Edition than just more frequent updates :cool:

Thanks, will ask them to change it. Is there a help file on how to make a plug-in?

You can download an offline copy from here or browse it online here.

Does anybody know some feeds that has BB Code in them so I can test the channel plug-in that I'm writing?

Is the original feed you were having problems no good? :wink:

I find it much easier to do testing using a file on my local PC. Just download a feed (e.g. one of ours), save it to a file and then manually edit it to include what you want.

The original feed works perfect now, but I want to see how it works with other websites. :wink:

BTW, if you send us the plugin, I'll put it up on the website for other people to use.
