Decided to post the running code I have - you can see it in action here:
The SilverStripe static method raw2xml:
is what does the trick on the parts of the feed that have been UTF-8 decoded in the original TwitterAPI class.
Since SilverStripe uses UTF-8 encoding I am not sure why the class uses the php UTF-8 decoding function?
hi all, Sorry for this delay to answer, I didnt notice this thread, must be mistakenly ticked off the Subscribe check box, I will answer these soon.
michaelhmm Many thanks for contacting me on twitter. So I will review the code, i see it needs some refactoring as well.
Give me a day or two over the weekend i will have some time for this for sure.
check with this code, I did some new updates to the look and feel too.
Just noticed that the code in the twitterAPI is using:
which doesn't work (won't convert special characters like & to html entities so breaks rendering of a strict xml document ) it should be:
Social Logic Error!
The page template twitterPage.ss will print the message that you have "0 Friends" if you specify that you want no freinds to show in the twitter form within the content management system.
The message is not necessarily true since you may have many friends but not wish to show them.
It is also just not nice to be told you have no friends, especially by a computer never mind by a human! :-)
Complexity: Convert:raw2xml is sometimes run twice on the same feed string when it's placed into the working SilverStripe framework as part of the twitter module. So for example the special character:
is double converted to:
It doesn't do this in isolation in tests so there is something in the flow of object processing which is causing this anomaly. Any ideas why this might be occuring?
Does anyone use this module in ss 2.4? Seems that I don't get any data from my twitter-account... e.g. "0 Followers" Not sure yet what's wrong.
BTW, Twitter is turning off basic auth in 7 weeks. I don't believe this module has made the switch, so either Nivanka or someone else needs to add OAuth for this to continue working.
