File Link In Phoca Download Module RSS

Post by evolution » 30 Apr 2018, 08:48

Hi Jan

I am using the Phoca Download Latest FIle Module on the following site and the client has asked me for the RSS feed to connect to an app they are using. However the RSS Feed links to the category and no to the file itself. Is there a way for the RSS Feed to contain the link to the pdf file and not the category page?

Cheers

Hi, in module options, you can set if the link goes to category or file.

Hi Jan

I'm using version 3.1.0 of the module and don't have that option.

Hi Jan

Yes, I have it set to Yes for file link type already.

Files in the module go direct to download but the RSS link goes to the category page:
https://yss.wa.edu.au/administration/do ... -2018.html

You can see the module here:
https://yss.wa.edu.au/yallingup-steiner ... namic.html

And here is the RSS

Hi, now I understand, sorry for misunderstanding. In RSS there is only one method - to category view and can be changed only with modification in this file:
components\com_phocadownload\views\feed\view.feed.php

FROM:

Code: Select all

$link 				= PhocaDownloadRoute::getCategoryRoute($valueDoc->categoryid, $valueDoc->categoryalias);
TO:

Code: Select all

$link 				= PhocaDownloadRoute::getFileRoute($valueDoc->id, $valueDoc->alias, $valueDoc->categoryid, $valueDoc->categoryalias);

Hi Jan

I've made the change but it produces the following error.
YSS Newsletter 2018 Term 2 Week 3
File
You have no rights to access this category
All categories and files are set to public.

Is there a way to link directory to the file without going to the download file page?

Code: Select all

$link 				= PhocaDownloadRoute::getFileRoute($valueDoc->id, $valueDoc->alias, $valueDoc->categoryid, $valueDoc->categoryalias);
						$item->link 		= JRoute::_($link);

Code: Select all

Hi, it is just standard link to file view. Did you enable displaying File View in Phoca Download Options?

Thanks Jan

It was selected but it appears my client has been changing settings as well! Why raise a ticket if they're going to then mess with it themselves???

Thanks for your help.
