thanks a lot. can you mail this version to email@example.com
because it is urgent
Already gave you 5 stars Thanks a lot.
Hello, we are looking for a script doing auto favorite and retweet based on hashtags, here’s an example : http://www.labnol.org/internet/retweet-favorite-twitter-bot/28967/
I can’t help you on this task, sorry
methods: getGoogleBackLinks and getGoogleIndexedPages don’t work (I’ve tested file test3.php), please help.
mm… you’re right. Those methods are no longer available without registration from Google, so it’s not possible to use them with my Minibots class. I’m going to update the class and the item.
Hello, can I convert from latitude and longitude to real addresses using say Google map and Openstreet map?
I’ve not made that function yet. I’m sorry at this moment I’ve not planned it.
I´m trying to use the function GetInstagramPics and I get a error message because of the CURL_FOLLOWLOCATION.
My Host does not support open_basedir and as far as I understand it now the function does not work without this.
Is there a way around? Without using open_basedir ?
You can try to set the variable $always_file_get_contents to true to use php file_get_contents function instead of curl. Sometimes it helps.
How do I do that ? Sorry I´m quite new.
private $always_file_get_contents = false;
private $always_file_get_contents = true;
Now this error doesn´t come up anymore, but I get this Error :
file_get_contents(####LINK####): failed to open stream: Connection timed out in
mmm… I think your server doesn’t allow file_get_contents. If you can’t use curl and file_get_contents it’s not possible to get external data.
I can use curl and I think file_get_contents needs fopen right ?
My host allows fopen and I use some curl in my code already. I just don´t use CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION
try to comment the line which add the CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION. To comment add // (double backslash) at the beginning of that line.
Then I just get bool(false) but no warning
I talked to my hosting company. They say that open_basedir is enabled already, but I need to check that my script is not accessing files out of my account directories. It is a webhosting.
I hope this will help us, to fix this.
You are accessing files outside Your server (not only outside your account). Please send me privately a temporary ftp account and I Will check it.
Twitter follower count is not working. It was working yesterday but today not. Is there a problem?
It’s still working on my installation. Sometimes it depends on your server ability to retrieve pages on https. You can try to change the parameter at the top of the class: use_file_get_contents_https I’ve setted it to true to make it work.
Hi, I tried the script today and found that the function getInstagramPics($user) does not display the count for ‘Followed By’. The interactive demo also has this issue. Can you please fix this? Apart from displaying ‘Followed By’ count, can the script also display ‘Following’ count? Thanks for the wonderful script
Hi, thank you for purchase! I can find the Followed by count, both in getInstagramPics method and in getInstagramFollowers method, you can check it here: http://www.barattalo.it/demo/minibots/test2.php
Can you update demo to use mysqli?
Minibots doesn’t use a database. What are you talking about?
Sorry I was thinking its your tutorial http://www.barattalo.it/spiders-webbots/building-a-spider/
Thanks for your awesome php minibots class.
But I’m missing a very important element: the number of media posts a user on instagram has:
Follows and Followed by are correct.
Could you please tell me how i can get the number of posts of an instagram user?
I tried counting all the $data[pics], but the function only returns 11 rows.
That’s my 2nd question: Is that standard? Isn’t it possible to return all pictures?
Thank you very much!
With the post above, I meant that the media count is not correct. Hope you can fix it or tell me how.
Yes, I’ve fixed it and I’m uploading right now to Codecanyon, they have to approve it before you can receive it.
Is the new version released?
No. It’s still in the approvation queue.
Hi Gino Plusio
If I call GetInstagramPics with a username that does not exist, my site gives following error and stops loading the rest:
The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found
I can’t check if $data is array or not. Error is always being shown and I can’t do anything.
How to fix?
Hello sir i purchased this scripts may i ask you.
How i get description in google search top 10 example image http://imgur.com/a/pf3KI
Please code example.
This doSpelling can use if i want get description from search how i do.
We bought Mini Bots PHP Class some time ago, and have been using it to get getInstagramPicsByTag, but it dosent seem like it is working anymore and when we check out your class preview and demos for minibots it dosent seem like getInstagramPicsByTag is there anymore…
Have this feature been removed since the url to get tags from always returns 404 in curl.
I’m checking it now, I hope to find a fix soon!
I think this is a temporary problem, because also the online Instagram version of their tag’s page index doesn’t work. For example: https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/milano/
seems like they changed the way it works seems like i need to be logged in to view hashtag searches
yes, that’s a bad news. I will try to check it later.
Today it’s working again!
Sweet, will i need to update the class or just use it as before?
You don’t need any update, it works just as before.
There is an error in the twitterInfo method: The number of “following” is shown 2 times printed.
[following] => 163163
[following] => 163
You’re right. I’ve just uploaded the fix to codecanyon. When they will approve you will receive a notification that tells you do download the new package. In 1 or 2 days I think.
It works fine! Thanks very much!
Again there is an error in the TwitterInfo method: This time the following variable contains nothing (http://www.barattalo.it/demo/minibots/test2.php)
Hi @Imoliver, I’ve updated the class and I’m going to upload it to CodeCanyon now.
Thanks you!! “In bocca al lupo”
Hello dear friend, really a great software, but what we call large images instead of thumbnails in a Google image search, because only the 300 px value being invoked in pictures, I want to be called for the larger images, thanks, if this is not possible, and the software I got, unfortunately it won’t solve my problem, I’ll be sad and it will be taken in vain. thanks for your help, good luck my dear friend
Hi ersoyyasar, google image search can’t be scraped easily, but there is another method that retrieves images from PicSearch image service. I’ve just added and uploaded to CodeCanyon a new version with the method getImageBig which retrieves the full size image url for images from PicSearch. I hope this will work nicely for you. The news version will be available for you for download in a couple of days I think.
I’ve been using your script for a while now and I just recently bought updates so I could fix the instagram picture function. That works now, but my instagram video function stopped working. Does the latest update no longer include it?
Video was never checked. How do you use it?
Hello great work, congratulations !!!!
1)How do I rank images in getInstagramPicsByTag?
2) I would need somewhere from the last date or hour (the last one first) – buy a code on your http://www.barattalo.it/instapostcards?
What do you mean with “rank”?
Instapostcards is available here: https://codecanyon.net/item/instapostcards/13069694
The getInstagramPic function is no longer working. Can you please test and fix the issue? I did my test by downloading the latest version of your code.
Just tested on http://www.barattalo.it/instapostcards and it’s working fine. Maybe you have something to check on your server.
Thanks for the prompt response. Part of the code which displays the Instagram ID of a picture does not work. In the link you posted, it does not display the Instagram ID associated with the picture. So, I don’t understand how you can test the issue I have raised?
Just run this code and you will see the issue -
echo "getInstagramPicsByTag method";
echo "Get images with a specified hashtag. There is also an interactive demo <a href="\"http://www.barattalo.it/demo/minibots.php\"">here</a>. In the example shows images tagged with #milano.";
$mb = new Minibots();
$info = $mb->getInstagramPicsByTag("milano");
echo "getInstagramPic method";
echo "Get informations from this instagram image http://instagram.com/p/".$info["pics"]["code"]."/";
$mb = new Minibots();
$info = $mb->getInstagramPic($info["pics"]["code"]);
Mmmm, I’ve put the above code in this page: http://www.barattalo.it/demo/minibots/t.php and I see it’s working. It extracts the data and shows everything. Where is the issue? Sorry, I really don’t undestand the problem.
Thanks. I really appreciate your prompt response. The only thing I can think of is that the minibots.class.php I am using is different from the one you are using. Can you please send me the version you are using?
The version is the 3.68, which is the one available here on Codecanyon. If you send me privately a termporay ftp account I will have a look to your server.
I sent you the FTP information. Can you please have a look? Thanks!
Hi, Did you get a chance to look into the issue? I have already sent you the FTP information few days back. Thanks, Arnab
Sorry, I was away for a job a few days. Now I’m back. Now I try.
awesome class, I’m fan, thank you.
But unfortunately the readFacebookPageCounters function seems to no longer working. Hope you can fix it soon, thanks!
I also tried with the last version.
Hi, since August 2016 the readFacebookCounters method needs also to configure an app on Facebook and use appid and app secret. The readFacebookPageCounters (for facebook pages) probably has limitations, so you can’t always ask for the number but you have to store (cache) the value and ask for new number carefully when needed. Here you can see that it’s working: http://www.barattalo.it/demo/minibots.php
Hi Gino, thank you for your answer!
Yes it works on your demo. But when I’m looking at function’s code and trying to debug it, I can get information but when I print the results of ($content) I’m getting arabic characters (or something) but with the correct numbers. They are simply not well parsed with preg_match all (line 844). I don’t think it’s a FB connection problem. Let me know
Can you send me privately an FTP access to see the problem and try to fix it?
Sent, thank you!
With getInstagramPicsByTag would be great to fetch the total number of images for that hashtag.
Yes, it would be, but at this moment I can’t find it. :-/
