BrainFeeder RSS plugin
« on: January 29, 2009, 11:22:33 pm »

BrainFeeder for Cpg 1.4x provides a simple user interface that lets you configure your feeds without any knowledge of PHP or the technical aspects of RSS feeds and Coppermine. Test it before using it on your live site.

BrainFeeder for Cpg lets you easily configure most of the attributes of the feeds so that you can create titles and description as you need them to be without you having to modify any code.

You can set up a number of different feeds that send pictures to your subscribers based on various criteria, such as:
    * Keyword
    * Category including child categories
    * Album
    * Latest pictures
    * Most viewed pictures
    * The most highly rated pictures
    * Random pictures selected based on any of the criteria above
    * Meta data from coppermine and Exif can be dynamically added to the picture caption in the feed

If you want, you can also make BrainFeeder publish individual pictures from restricted albums. This is a handy feature if you need to protect most pictures in an album, but still want to publish some of them. Users need to login in order to click through from the feed.

BrainFeeder can be run in two ways:
    * In realtime mode: The feed is generated each time it is called.
    * In batch mode: BrainFeeder generates a static RSS file that is downloaded by subscribers.

More info here: http://www.natvik.com/bfdoc/brainfeeder_doc.html

Example feed: http://www.natvik.com/rss.php?fid=1

BrainFeeder for Coppermine is also available for Coppermine 1.5.

UPDATE
Version 0.6 - new feature: Random pictures in a feed
Version 0.61 - minor bugfixes
Version 0.7 - Improved handling of movies and other media types and made thumbnails in feeds clickable
Version 0.9 - Context sensitive RSS icon (optional), One click feed setup, choose intermediate (normal) or thumbnail to be shown in feed
Version 1.0 - Improved the lay out of the configuration screen. Implemented dynamic picture captions that let you include information from coppermine and exif meta data in the feed.
Version 1.1 - Fixed incorrect default anchor in picture caption
Version 1.2 - Fixed error causing default title to be used also for pictures with their own title

Hya Natvik,

Are you planning on having a random-function in your feed?
Like random X-number of pictures of the complete album on creation of the feed.

Great :D

I've been trying to get that working with different RSS-plugins, but I didn't succeed.

The little ajustments to be made for my Kodak W1020-digital photoframe are easy (media-tag), but the real randomizing (or is it randomising? ;)) with each request. ... pfew...

Hi I installed this great plugin but get an error:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or '}' in /home/mysite/public_html/coppermine/plugins/brainfeeder/brainfeeder.php on line 26

I get this when I try to see the feed:
http://mysite.co.uk/coppermine/rss.php?fid=1

Any idea's what could be wrong.
Thanks

Although I hadn't edited this file I did try your advise and uploaded a new copy of the plugin but the error is the same.
I've attached the brainfeeder.php file for you to see.
Thanks

Means you don't have PHP5.

OK... That never occurred to me and an extremely valid point indeed.... Thanks again Nibbler. I shall upgrade to PHP5 today and report back. Can I confirm that Coppermine1.4.19 is happy with PHP5?
Thanks for all your help again.

cpg1.4.x will work with PHP4.2 or better as per docs (section "minimum requirements"). The word "or better" means in this case: yes - will work with PHP5.x as well.
This very plugin needs PHP5 though - the initial posting in this thread should be edited accordingly.

Thanks for the reply Joachim Müller. I'm pleased that you have edited the post to state PHP5 or better required to run this plugin. I'm going to upgrade this week.

@goman... update. Now. Running <!--Coppermine Photo Gallery 1.4.10 (stable)--> is not a bright idea  ;)

Hey, so I did as instructed uprgade:
http://coppermine-gallery.net/demo/cpg14x/docs/index.htm#upgrade
to cpg1.4.21.
But the plugin still does not work :-(
http://www.svetfotek.net/rss.php?fid=4
and there arose the problem :-(
Everywhere where we had some Smail shows something else.
Example:
