Umlaute and other special characters
by A825F933D42B
12 Jun 2009 21:39

I added the following code:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

just after the lines fixing the CDATA-issue. Now, all Umlaute and special characters will be submitted to Twitter. Just if it helps someone else too

Welche Datei und welche Zeile?
Ja die Umlaute sind wohl das Problem.

Nice mod !

You will also need to set the refresh time on your RSS feed in vboptions to 0 if you want to ensure that every new thread is updated to your twitted feed. If the refresh time is 60 minutes you will only have the latest thread submitted every hour when the RSS cache is refreshed.

Do you mean the Cache Lifespan? I didn't see a refresh... :confused:

My RSS feed is correct: http://flotgaming.net/forums/external.php?f=43

If I run the task manually, I get the error: Error: RSS file not found, dude

Any fix for this?

I moved to a new box and all the setting are completely the same. However, I am now also getting the same error message.

Is this modification now dead? Is there anyone who can help solve the issues people are having?

SBlueman 19 Jun 2009 04:25

BTW, it looks like this modification is a re-write of some sorts of this open source modification:

http://paulstamatiou.com/stammy-scri...tter-using-php

Don't know if that helps out to any of the php-saavy people out there who might be using this modification and would be willing to help us in need.

This is now beyond frustrating....this was the perfect modification for my site's needs and now it has stopped working out of the blue and the mod author is completely AWOL even though this is marked as a supported modification.

SBlueman 23 Jun 2009 10:18

No support....

***uninstalled***

Ja, aber ich schreib trotzdem in Englisch, für die anderen ;-)
Just write on line 24, of twitask.php, just where the error message of the add-on occures:
Quote:

} else { die('Error: RSS file not found, dude.'); }

$title = str_replace("<![CDATA[", "", "$title");
$title = str_replace("]]>", "", "$title");
$title = str_replace("&", "and", "$title");

$title = utf8_encode ($title); //for the bloody umlaute

Not sure I have this working.

there are several mods that do this but much better.. This one (vBulletin Tweet Poster!) will even link back to your site as the source link :up:
and it works prefect ;)
