Pulling code from another site with JS - any way of keeping OLD version?

Discussion in 'Programming' started by NAZAM.COM, Sep 6, 2005.

    I've arranged a deal with a website whereby I pay to receive their latest movie review via a Javascript code and the review appears on my site. But they update the review every other day and so my site only shows the very latest review. I would prefer to also have review from few days before.

    Is there any way of 'freezing' the review from, say, three days before and displaying that on my site?

    A couple of people have emailed me asking what format the code is in. It is as follows:

    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://cinemablend.com/pfeed_formimage_typed.js"></script>

    Whomever operates cinemablend.com is in control of that script. If this is you, we could help you. If it's not, you'll need to contact them and explain how you would like it revised.

    Yes, I know the owner of cinemablend.com - I pay to receive his reviews. Only thing is he doesn't answer my emails - 12 emails in the last three months and not one response :(

    What information do you need from the javascript?

    Do they provide any other way to obtain their reviews? Any APIs you can integrate with, RSS feeds, XML data?

    No, I'm afraid the only way is through Javascript.

    Any idea how I resolve this?

    .. You could have a script programmed to parse this javascript file daily and store the info in a database. Once it's in the database you could have your page programmed to show whatever you'd like, as long as it's data that is already stored in the database. This may be against the sites terms, however.
