I wanted to make a little script that displays thumbs of my latest ZenPhoto additions. I decided using RSS was the way to go.
The code isn't included yet or anything, but it basically uses SimplePie (RSS Parser) to pull information from the ZenPhoto RSS feed. I had to make some adjustments to get it to display correctly...nothing extensive, or that a novice PHP programmer couldn't figure out with a little time and effort, but thought it may help someone.
Here's the working example:
Obviously, the linked 'demo' galleries are working examples of the parser in action. I've gotten it to work on all feeds I've attempted with the exception of the main ZenPhoto Demo Gallery...due to problems caused by the images all having the same upload / taken date/time. I didn't dedicate much time to fixing this since it shouldn't affect many people.
I then decided to see if I could get it to work with other RSS feeds...and with minimal effort got it to work with Flickr and Picasa feeds.
I'll post the source code if any interest is expressed. I'll clean it up a little, make it presentable.
FYI, only the thumbnails at the top are script I'm referencing...the rest of the page content is practically a dump of the SimplePie-parsed RSS feed.
This script is running on my development server, which is slow...so don't be surprised if other RSS feeds take a few seconds to load...and may require a reload if it times out. I've not seen it not work on the second load.
