To use the pre-formatted feed, simply include the following HTML snippet on your page where you want the feed to appear:
And to use the un-formatted feed, include the following HTML snippet on your page where you want the feed to appear, then set up the CSS on your page to make it look nice:
<?php include("http://uo.stratics.com/php-bin/rss/format.php"); ?>
into your page (or call http://uo.stratics.com/php-bin/rss/read.php if you want the un-formatted feed).
If you want to use Perl instead, you can get the same effect using a small script and the LWP module (which is usually installed on most systems these days). Add this script to your /cgi-bin/ as, for example, simpleread.pl:
You may need to change the first line to point to your copy of Perl and, again, you can use http://uo.stratics.com/php-bin/rss/read.php to get the unformatted version. With that in place, add the following SSI command to your page to read the feed:
The feed supplied has a number of CSS classes set up. You can set these in your own page to control the look of the feed if you want. The classes are as follows:
Using any of the scripts mentioned on this page will give you a news feed that contains news items from all news categories on UO Stratics. If you want to receive news of one single category, then you can accomplish that by adding a category parameter to the URL you are using.
Example: If you would want to see only the Atlantic shard news items in raw format then you would use the following URL: http://uo.stratics.com/php-bin/rss/raw.php?category=Atlantic
These are the different categories you can use: GeneralNews, CommunityNews, DeveloperFeedback, QuestandEventNews, CandidCoverage, Atlantic, Baja, Catskills, Chesapeake, Drachenfels, Europa, GreatLakes, LakeAustin, LakeSuperior, LegendsAOL, NapaValley, Oceania, Origin, Pacific, SiegePerilous and Sonoma.
If you want to access the raw RSS 1.0 data, you can reach it at http://uo.stratics.com/php-bin/rss/raw.php. Several programs can be set up to read and parse this, including WatzNew for which we have already created a channel you can install. Some older systems, like the RSSNews plugin for Trillian Pro will need the earlier RSS 0.9 format, which can be reached at http://uo.stratics.com/php-bin/rss/091.php.
