This IP.Content Feed Source Allows You to Pull data from your IP.Nexus install into Content Feed Blocks.
This Allows Data Feeds of Nexus Hosting, Ad, and Product Packages, as well as Nexus ads.
Packages can be ordered by price, title, and random, and can be filtered to specific packages, package groups, being shown in store, or being featured, as well as being in stock.
Ads can be sorted by clicks, impressions, and random, and can be filtered by ad id, ad's associated member, and "Active" status.
(NOTE, I have NO way of tracking clicks/impressions from ad block use!)
This Has very little Accompanying Block Template Help Descriptions, but the basis is present, including basic filtering Options.
This Was a Quite Large amount of coding work, but I offer this freely as I feel this should be a core content option.
If you appreciate this offering, feel free to Donate
The current Version is Not a sign of stability, but rather a reflection on the lack of block help descriptions and default template to work from.

Is this that Nexus Mod you spoke about? I have installed and I really like it. However I am having a problem with one area tossing a DB error. I can use the Default Product List it is on my main page, but the feature will fail and I get an error take a look at this page http://www.usa-synthetics.com/test

I set up a new block called featured item > Product Package > Selecting filter by package a single item Filter Store, Feature and Stock set either yes or no causes this error.

I want to see how the lay out is and working I really like this add on and would like to suggest some features to it. We spoke before I would be willing to pay for a very nice Pro Version of this, allowing packages to be displayed in a Forum Thread and additional blocks for Content.

If I may suggest for future releases or maybe a purchasable Pro version I would pay up to $50 or a more advanced, I really like what I see, I hope I can get the bug I see corrected to really evaluate the product. I believe this is a great item and I hope it grows. I used to use a product with VB called VBclassified, there was a hoook that allowed for it to create threads, Here is an example of the product at work for ideas. http://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=232 Each one of the links is a hook to the Product in classified

[*]Ability to have a featured Block [*]Ability to have Top Seller Block [*]Ability to Link Products to a Forum Thread (Example is say I have Oil Catagory, each new product I can check to have pushed as a Thread, much like what we do to Promote to an article. [*]Images (thumbnails adjustable size) for blocks [*]Description ability

ok... messing with it now, thats not caused by the featured field itself,... its the multi-select package(package group seems fine) selection thats the root of it.




Sorry, I was going to add it seems when I make multiple selections it does this. I installed your extra Box.xml and that worked until I chose listed one.. Did I mention I really Like this. Seriously, I have bene trying to figure out a new design for the main page as I use IP.C and this is going to work perfectly for what I want, I hope :)

yes, tis much appreciated you specifically stated every filter set that triggered it.
before the package and package groups were an #id input, which was quite the hassle, swapped it to multi-select, and package groups works, packages do not, which is whats throwing me for a loop :P
It had not triggered on me in development as when i chose to filter by a certain package(s) in testing, the other filters had already refined it to 0 results.... working on this.

Works great, thanks, testing now

First item, it is not allowing for BBcode. It displays the code if it is in the product as

0-o.... that the description? or the product page using the preformed $var?

I'll be running some additional testing myself when i wake, i can only assume you speak of $r['content'] which is the description.... seems i could need to actually predisplay parse that var... or clean it(i may opt for latter, if its not an issue, or give both(seems a better option, choice of fully parsed and stripped in case you wish to run truncation on it.))
That and somehow find the time to document all these $vars im making available.

This has been fixed as of 0.0.8, same patch method.
also, for anyone wondering, after having looked through my code and the relevant nexus tables, this "should" be functional on a 3.1.x, no tables have changed to cause an improper data return, and the preDisplayParse function for $r['content'] and $r['page'] seems to be functional as well.

Question
Using
]


$r['p_image']

ok..... I shall make it clear.
While that list is not yet complete, while within the:


<foreach loop="$records as $r">


in any of the three package types, you may utilize any of the $variables listed there as you see fit and/or need....
The block help lists ALL the available $vars, but without any reference on what they are.
This shall be rectified when i have completed said list, at which time i will add the language strings to make the inline block help.... more helpful.

yes absolutely. you would use this:


<img src='{$this->settings['upload_url']}/{$r['p_image']}' />

If I wanted to add some cell padding or for example a Horzontal rule in the Product List (See www.usa-synthetics.com) Left Side PRODCT LIST. Just to seperate it just a tad how would I do that. I have tried setting a br as well as a P set cell spacing in a table format even a HR for a horzontal Rule.

It just looks bunched up and i would like to just get a couple of px's of padding between each product.

the code is as follows


<div class='ipsSideBlock'>

<h3>{$title}</h3>

<ul class='hfeed'>

  <if test="is_array( $records ) && count( $records )">

   <foreach loop="$records as $r">

  <li class='clearfix'><a href='{$r['url']}'  title='{$r['title']}'>{$r['title']}</a>


*** I place a <BR>, <P> or <HR> Here but isnt what I want and HR doesnt work at all ***


		  <a class='ipsBadge ipsBadge_green right' href='{$r['buylink']}'>


Buy Now

</a>

  </li>

  </foreach>

  </if>

</ul>

</div>

<br />
