    Just released another couple of free mods:

    - Homepage Newsfeed

    Allows you to display a newsfeed on the homepage of your directory to increase the content. Tested on all of the popular feeds such as Yahoo, BBC, ABC News, etc. The mod is very straight forward to install and configure, you can use any feed you wish and decide how many headlines should be displayed.

    - Random Quotes

    This little addition to your site will allow you to display a random quote every time a page is requested. This is a highly effective method of introducing fresh content for the search engines, espcially when operating a niche directory.

    Enjoy, more coming soon.

    I'm using the Homepage Newsfeed mod, but I would like to display news from different sources not just one (eg. each source in different places of my website)

    Is this possible?

    No this is not possible with this particular mod, this is why I chose to call it the 'Homepage' newsfeed, because that is all it is designed for. I am however working on something else which will be more suited to what you are looking for so keep you eye on this thread as it will be released soon.

    SilkySmooth, can i ask why the following is neccessary?

    Important: After installing any of our mods please ensure that you clear out your cache "/temp/templates" by deleting all files except "index.html".

    phpLD uses the template engine Smarty which in turn uses a cache system to help load the web site faster and reduce processing times. If you make changes to the template files and do not clear your cache then it is possible that you will not see your changes.

    I say it is possible because not all servers / phpLD installs are set up correctly to take advantage of the cache system.

    However it is still advisable to clear out your cache when making changes to the templates to prevent old versions from being displayed.

    I am not going to be developing a deep link mod so you have three choices... wait for Freewebspace to finish his off... visit mhamdi's blog where he explains how to do it with coding examples. Or contact an0n who charges $100 per installation.

    No problem. ;)

    Hi, I have recently bought phpld 3.2 and just installed your nice "homepage feed" plugin. Is there a way to change the output of the rss lines? Actually, the output looks like this:

    Spiekeroog im Wandel: Die ostfriesische Insel und die Welt der Schönen Künste - Sun, 03 Jun 2007 10:22:27 +0200

    What i don't need is the complete time-stamp including the time-tone-information. How do i delete this? Additionally, is there a way to change the date format to German/European format i.e. "Sonntag, 3. Juni 2007.

    Thanks for your help in advance!

    Best regards from Germany

    Helge

    Hi Helge,

    You can edit the template 'homepage_newsfeed.tpl' to alter the appearance of the newsfeed. For example, to remove the time completely you would simply delete '{$newsitem.PUBDATE}' from the table row and it will be displayed in the same way I am using it on Directory Share.

    To actually change the date format, you would need to edit the above variable to use the smarty date_format modifier, you can find the manual here: Smarty Date Format (Note that they also have a german manual available)

    A quick example would be:

    
    {$newsitem.PUBDATE|date_format:"%A, %B %e, %Y"}
    
    Code (markup):
    That would convert this: Sun, 03 Jun 2007 15:40:26 GMT

    Into this: Sunday, June 3, 2007

    HTH

    I have just released another 3 free phpLD mods, details below...

    - Article of the Day

    Allows you to display a "Article of the Day" on any of the pages you choose. The article is randomly selected from the database; with each day loading a new article. An example of this mod in action can be seen on our homepage. This mod is very straight-forward and easy to install, just download the zip file and follow the install.txt contained within.

    - Category Newsfeed

    Display a newsfeed on any of your category or sub category pages. Each category or sub category can be configured to display different feeds from unique sources and you can decide how many news entries to display on a per category basis. The mod has been tested on a wide variety of newsfeeds including some of the popular feeds such as Yahoo, BBC, ABC News, etc.

    - Social Bookmarks

    This mod allows you to list a series of social bookmarks on your directory for users to either bookmark your site, or bookmark your customers sites directly from the details page. There are various different configuration options which allow you to integrate into your directory. The mod currently supports all of the following social bookmarking sites: Blinklist, Delicious, Digg, Furl, Google, Magnolia, Reddit, Simpy, Spurl, StumbleUpon, Technorati and Yahoo.

    As always, enjoy and let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks for the comments guys :)

    dsakella, I noticed you had an error on your homepage earlier, looks like you or someone working for you was trying to install the most popular categories mod. Anyway, just wanted to tell you the error was appearing because the template file 'most_popular_categories.tpl' wasn't uploaded to your theme directory.
