First, love this script.. Thank you! Secondly, is it possible to not have the html tags stripped from the RSS descriptions? I do not have them set to strip and the expanded view works fine.
tags are stripped from excerpt, in expanded view should be all rendered (except for iframes)
Yes. Is this changable? to have them un-stripped from the excerpt?
No, impossible. Shortener script would’t work with any tag available
Great script but I have one tiny concern. I do not seem able to control the right hand margin. This means there is often a wider margin on the right than on the left. In other words, the slider is not in the middle of the available space!
This is only apparent when there is a border around the slider (as in my case) and it does not look neat!
space should be automatically managed by the script. Could you please open a ticket sending me a link to check? thanks
Is there a clever way to filter the feed from Facebook? Id like your slider to show only those posts which have an image. Is this possible?
You should tweak the plugin code to discard news without images
Hi, I cannot get the news feed from the page https://www.facebook.com/Gallachers-Smokehouse-Bar-and-Grill-627523257317488/?fref=nf – is this a setting or is it not possible ? I have also tried with a valid number as per the instructions and this does not work – appreciate some help or a refund.
is this page restricted somehow? (maybe for geographic location)
Don’t think so – it’s just a standard page – it’s in the UK but that’s really all I know (it’s a clients not mine). I’ve tried it with my personal page and also http://findmyfbid.com/success/24424651743 which also does not work – all I have done is changed the code in the demo to use this number and it does not show anything
24424651743 is related to a group, not a page.
And also the other page doesn’t have a standard URL: the ID finder reports an error. Is it a proper FB page?
For example: https://www.facebook.com/Ferrari/?fref=ts – ID 24712846969
As said – I do not know – it is not my page – it is a clients. I have also tried my OWN personal page which also does not work.https://www.facebook.com/Plan-it-web-969941363017020/ – and yes I have followed the advice about making it available to search engines and I have opened the findfbid in a new browser.
I’ve got it to work the ID is in the URL – and after a couple of refreshes it works.
So, is it working now?
Hi yes, it is thanks! – I am struggling to put the date before the content of the box – at the moment it’s at the bottom of the box (by default I believe) what would you recommend to put this at the top of the box?
Dear L., can you have a look to our ticket please ? We have support contract and used to always have fast replies, but not this time. Can happen to every service, So not the end of the world, but now it really becomes very urgent to us. Thanks in advance for your help.
sorry which ticket? I’m not seeing ticket by you
Anyway always keep in mind that a reply could too also 15 hours (depending on when you write in the day)
Thanks. Situation (we reported the problem a few times by mail, as we even could not create a ticket) : last year you suggested us a solution for a problem with the news box -> we wanted to find that solution again in the ticketing system, but we could even nog get access to historic answers. We have renewed our support (till 31/12/16) and it is confirmed that way, but even then we dit not get access to the historical data and neither could we create a new ticket.
Not able to find the e-mail too..! Please write again through my codecanyon profile
(just fyi) message we send on 29/06 to firstname.lastname@example.org
later on we added info that we renewed our support contract but still did not get access to our old support topics / information
The same problem is repeating as past year.
So I wanted to check the support answers you gave me last year, but I can not get access anymore to it.
Our licence :
It’s not about new support, but just about consulting the answers of last year.
Don’t worry your support entitlement is valid, just can’t find your email on current PC’s outlook (maybe got lost in sync, for this reason I prefer to use my web platform).
And, which question to answer?
In June, on the Facebook-page there was a new post, but it does not appear in the news-box on the website. The last one that appeared was dated 25/05/2016. I think one year ago we had something similar and then we could solve it with your advise. But we can not open the ‘old dossier’ on the support page, to see which steps we can follow to (maybe) solve it.
As you should know, News Box is a frontend (jQuery only) plugin, then there is no cache.
Everything you see is gived directly in FB feed.
Have you updated to latest version? (released yesterday)
Today was our last working day. After summer holiday we will try to install the latest version. Is there a possibility to run an update script ? We had a look yesterday but first impression was that it’s rather complicated to do the upgrade.
Wait: you’re talking about jQuery version. Just override files
but code that mentioned newsbox before, now mentions Swiftbox (and pathnames change). Or is there somewhere a clear description of how we can move from newsbox-version to swiftbox-version please ? (maybe it’s easier then we think (without description) )
Oh well, you still have ews Box (as you know, I had to change name for a stupid copyright dispute).
Just change paths and function name, all the rest is identical
Hello Lucas. We changed it into ‘swift’ and could get it running. Just a question : in the downloaded files of the new ‘swift’ version, we received in the dir JS_assets the file jquery-1.10.2.min, while the code in the demo sample file was referring to 1.12.4. We could get it working by changing the code into 1.10.2 Do you advise to go 1.12.4 ? and if yes, how can we get the correct jsquery1.12.4.min file please ?
Is just an updated release, nothing different
Specially since is related to the demo. Plugin supports jQuery 1.7 to jQuery 3.x
icon font @ symbol could you provide please
sorry I’ve not understood, could you elaborate please?
Hi there, I saw there was an update so I checked your changelog but I don’t see a not. Can you let us know what’s been updated? Thanks!!
Yep, I have to wait until Envato approves and was late night here.
Basically just added youtube channels support
Awesome plugin does exactly what I require need a little assistance I have a couple of questions
1. Why doesn’t the slider pause straight away on mouse hover but wait till hits the start of the next article ?
2. The slider can behave rather erratically where it can run extremely fast or shutters any idea why?
Also u will notice I have managed to add an email share option in my template.
sorry not exactly understanding your reply the option has been enabled if you see the example I have sent it has the issues Im referring to
Totally missed the link (I thought is ws a static image ), sorry.
1- Continuous sliding effect behaves like this: since animation has already been triggered, then it stops on next news.
2- still not understand the second point. Anyway continuous sliding shouldn’t have navigation arrows. Adding animations and navigations on top of other ones is really heavy. Specially having many contents as in your case.
all good just so I can cross it off there is no way for it to pause straight away not waiting till it hits the next news item. The second point is even without the navigation arrows the same issue applies if I move my mouse in a circle continuously over the carousel the animation increases speed cant be slowed without a refresh.
Nope, there’s no “immediate” stop due to the dynamic sliding system used. Would be a real problem to restart correctly.
True, I’ve never checked that behavior before
Seems a sort of start/stop bug on continuous effect with “pause-on-hover”.
I’ll surely have to debug. Please give me few hours to check.
Thanks for the reply mate hope you can sort that one out cheers
Sorry for the delay, forgot about it. (because of this reason is better to use my support system)
On my test page behavior is different, then I debugged directly on your file and seen you are using also functions to stop slideshow manually. And is a duplicate of the “pause_on_hover” value.
Anyway issue is indeed on those functions.
So: ended up re-doing from scratch start/stop systems
Contact me in private to get the pack or just wait until Envato approves it!
Some of my images from facebook post links are not showing up. And Some are. Why is this? http://www.yourgoldpages.com/testing/facebookfeed Is there a way to create a default avatar for facebook items that can’t load image?
that link brings to a 404 page. Anyway: are you using the image resizer script? (PHP)
If not, what you see is what Facebook returns. Depends on elements shared in that page
As expected: FB is messing with shared elements
Swift Box was using a trick to get original image, but FB doesn’t allow this anymore. So.. I used another workaround.
Please comment on your ticket and I’ll send you the update
Still Waiting on the Update?
?? Don’t see any ticket or mail. Anyway update has been approved days ago.
Just download it again from Codecanyon (and be sure to have update warning enabled to be informed)
Hi there why is it I can’t test the site on a local machine?
When I run the Demo.html and added my feed https://cyberadigital.wordpress.com/feed/. nothing happens
pretty strange since is totally JS-based.
Unless you are using Twitter or Image sizes checker (requiring PHP), it runs on any static HTML file.
I should check it (then, eventually, open a ticket and attach the file as zipped)
here is what I am seeing https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/19671263/Screen%20Shot%202016-09-16%20at%206.53.59%20PM.png
can i send you the files i downloaded?
Yes, is what I said before: please open a ticket and attach the file as zipped http://support.lcweb.it/
Hi, is still this working fine with RSS?
Appears that Yahoo YQL have updated they system, and the feeds are no longer being fetched correctly…
I’m currently investigating on this. Only few sources aren’t fetched
It has been solved by Yahoo
Strange. For me still doesn’t appear the rss feeds…
I think YQD have changed something in the queries result, and that is what causing this…
Another customer just reported that, in last hour, the issue came back.
Only thing we can do is wait and hope for the best then
Probably should be a good suggestion add a RSS Parser to the script, so, for those who doesn’t want be in the will of Yahoo, could still show the feeds…
And becouse we never know when yahoo will “clean” this service for good.
Like this for another script: https://github.com/curtins/mlbscoreboard/blob/master/SmartTicker/rssloader.php
Impossible: isn’t allowed to fetch cross-domain resources on browsers.
Otherwise I’d have already developed it years ago
But i am currently using it with another script and is working fine… Same domain and also external feeds from different sources…
At least in RSS….
Could you please link the tool?
The SmartTicker was a script sold here in codecanyon (not anymore, for what i see). But the github link before shows the code.
Probably is a little adapted for that script, but it should work anywhere. Here is another example: http://stackoverflow.com/a/251102
The Feed can be parsed by PHP. Is not exactly “jquery only” that Swift Box promise, but for those who want a alternative to Yahoo YQL…
Oh, for sure, PHP could achieve it but
Yahoo (YQL) is having issues retrieving some feeds.
Me and other developers have asked infos on the official forum, but still no response.
As you can see, I’m also involved. My demo is partially broken.
But there’s no alternative.. is the only service we can use across the web nowadays.
This morning it was ok, but there are still problems Let’s hope they will solve soon
Cool. Thanks for the update.
Does your plugin send images to facebook or only the link? I want to show contents on my site with an image, have the user click your socials share facebook button, and have the image shared on facebook. Also, does your plugin also send images to twitter, google, pinterest? Nice work btw.
Hello and thanks for the kind words,
my plugins uses a “special” sharing system.
Then sharing a news, you’ll share the precise image with related contents.
Only twitter has got just texts. However they recently excluded attached image from letters count, then have to check about new sharing options
Hi, can we use this script to post news on our site?
I just bought the plugin and I have added the folder swift-box-js on the server of my website at the address http://rendicontofinanziario.net/swift-box-js/demo.html. I dont see anything as the same happens with the user moviereplicars on the comment of 3 months ago.
semplicemente non hai incluso jQuery nella pagina
grazie…ma non ho fatto altro che inserire sul server la cartella che contiene il file demo.html, la cartella img, js_assets ecc., anche questo file non funziona in locale, cosa dovrei aggiungere? ho aggiunto nella cartella demo.html
ma è sempre uguale
"NetworkError: 404 Not Found - http://rendicontofinanziario.net/swift-box-js/js_assets/jquery-1.12.4.min.js"
nella cartella js_assets esiste solo jQuery-1.10.2.min.js…il file jquery-1.12.4.min.js non c’è… sarebbe stato auspicabile che il file demo.html funzionasse!
In locale, a me funziona perfettamente (la stessa cartella che hai anche tu) e nella cartella assets c’è jquery-1.12.4.min (ovviamente parlo della versione del plugin 1.42).
nella cartella che si scarica js_assets è presente solo il file jQuery-1.10.2.min.js. Così ho dovuto aggiungere il file jquery-1.12.4.min.js copiandolo su Internet e aggiungendolo nella cartella. Ora dal file demo.html si vede.
Sinceramente non so come sia possibile se tu hai la versione 1.42..!
Comunque, l’importante è che sia risolto
veramente sembra che la versione disponibile sia la 1.41
Uhm… io ho segnato dovunque che l’aggiornamento era stato fatto a metà ottobre. Però guardando Codecanyon, riporta la 1.41
Continuo a non capire come sia possibile, ma carico subito la 1.42.
Per ora mi scuso. Grazie della segnalazione
Nel file demo.html vorrei conservare unicamente lo scroller orizzontale al top della pagina, eliminando quelli sotto. Come faccio a non evidenziarli? Nella pagina html di demo che cosa devo cancellare?
fetch post from facebook page doesn’t work anymore? or there is something wrong with my settings?
"message": "Unsupported get request. Object with ID '389807701030275' does not exist, cannot be loaded due to missing permissions, or does not support this operation. Please read the Graph API documentation at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/graph-api",
just tested right now with Ferrari Facebook page and everything is fine.
Try this ID: 24712846969
Weird! Worked. But didn’t work with any id that I tested before!
Can you kindly test Soundcloud and Pinterest as well? cause for me these 2 also are now working. (if worked for you, can you again give me the id you test?)
You can see soundcloud in my demo: http://www.lcweb.it/swift-box-wordpress-plugin
Pinterest is also ok, but they changed URLs structure, then be sure your board URL is updated
I need enclosure (media attachment), Can you help me?
what do you mean with this precisely? to fetch images or other?
my RSS example: http://netfritz.com/images/exampleRSS.jpg
You have to tweak the plugin’s engine then.
In private (open a ticket) I can tell you where is RSS management, but you’ll have to manage enclosures retrieval and management.
There are 2 problems that I’m not sure why newly happened. I applied a couple of fixes that I could guess, but none of them worked. Any idea will be appreciated:
1. RSS doesn’t show the feed (on https sites. RSS also has https)
2. Ticker starts moving, even when carousels is disabled.
Thanks in advance
1- In last 48 hours Yahoo services (YQL) have random issues. Then, randomly, you get no results from feed queries.
Unfortunately this is the only possible service to use and can’t make anything about Yahoo. As far as I remember this is the second time Yahoo fails in 2 years. Hope they will fix soon.
2- Do you mean autoplay or carousel? They are different things
I have been having problems with the rss feeds for the past 2 weeks, they randomly appear when I call the html pages I use for rss feeds. You can look at an example here: http://webparts.netvision.is/swiftbox/tolvustod.html the feed shows up maybe every 4-5 time that I refresh the page. Do you have any information on why this is happening? Facebook feeds e.g. work just fine.
you are noticing the (unfortunately) famous YQL service issue. The problem is common for all of us.
