We can now track our outbound RSS links!
« on: June 15, 2006, 02:35:55 PM »
This was a simple but nasty bit of logical php code I came up with. I use feeddigest to incorporate feeds into the onsite reader, but they don't track the number of clicks that go outbound from our site to the miscellaneous bloggers. But, I added this bit of code to the block and now it works like a champ and we can track outbounds through the normal statistics of our links section http://www.chemicalforums.com/?module=Links

Code: [Select]
<?php
$handle 
fopen("http://app.feeddigest.com/digest3/JQFKHPXB76.html""rb");
$contents '';
$index 0;
while (!
feof($handle)) {
$contents fread($handle10000);
}
fclose($handle);

$contents str_replace("Chemical &amp; Engineering News: Latest News"'<a href="http://www.chemicalforums.com/index.php?module=Links;sa=gotolink;id=157">Chemical &amp; Engineering News: Latest News</a>'$contents);
$contents str_replace("Scientific American - Official RSS Feed"'<a href="http://www.chemicalforums.com/index.php?module=Links;sa=gotolink;id=158">Scientific American - Official RSS Feed</a>'$contents);

$contents str_replace("The Disgruntled Chemist"'<a href="http://www.chemicalforums.com/index.php?module=Links;sa=gotolink;id=150">The Disgruntled Chemist</a>'$contents);

$contents str_replace("blog.tenderbutton.com"'<a href="http://www.chemicalforums.com/index.php?module=Links;sa=gotolink;id=139">blog.tenderbutton.com</a>'$contents);

echo 
$contents

Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

At least we can now know who the most popular bloggers are according to Chemical Forums. :)
