Introducing PingTrax for XOOPS 2.5

I started work on a module I have needed for awhile combining a few different systems needed to be addressed in XOOPS which encompasses the following XML systems:-

  1. Ping Lists
  2. Trackbacks
  3. Sitemaps

This system as I have a couple of projects on at the moment and limitation to what I can work on and when may be a week or two before it is released! It uses preloaders and the Xoops Handler classes to map the site you have automatically so you need not with the sitemap module write plugin’s for every single module but that option is there as well, I will be doing examples for XCenter and Newbb/XForum apart from the default.php plugins’.

It will periodically alter your robot.txt to list various sitemap.http.example.com.xml or sitemap.https.example.com.xml to contain the links that have been discovered while sleeping for awhile between writing these file out put; it will also with any new discovered link periodically within a few moments of being discovered send it to a ping-list just like WordPress does with the announce of a new blog; but this is for any new User Generate Content or Admin Generated Content; using a form of XML-RPC.

One thing I have notice in going around some of the XOOPS Site is people have implemented trackbacks but only in one module, the Auto discovery (which will have a `parent-id` add to the `items` table for http:// vs. https:// so their is unilateral balances between the protocols a single identity number for a page impression) will assign a identity number to each single page impression of a unique page just once so you can either implement the smarty function in the theme which will be:~ <{xoTrackbacks module=$xoops_dirname}> or by turning on one of the two/three types of trackback blocks to allow people to embed trackbacks to any point of their public face of the XOOPS Site they are running through the trackback XML-RPC API.

The following files have been added to subversion so far if you want to check them out, for neatness:-

  • admin/index.html
  • api/
  • blocks/index.html
  • class/index.html
  • class/items_pings.php
  • class/items_sitemaps.php
