Traffic Info & Movie Listing RSS
« on: January 10, 2005, 04:16:40 PM »
I am happy to be posting more great additions to TP !!  This made possible by "eemond", who wrote some fine PHP Scripts to access Traffic Information, and to List Movie Times from your local theaters...

Also, "jhollin1138" has agreed to store these scripts on the forum's server, so that they can be accessed by anyone who wants to make use of them..  I have used both of these scripts since eemond first released them, and they work well !!   I spend much time on the road, and to know the location of traffic accidents and road construction  from my ppc has been a big help !!
And if your a movie fan, then the theater movie times is also a big help....


The Traffic Info :  http://todayplus.jhollin1138.com/rss/traffic_rss.php

Setup example (Columbus)  : http://todayplus.jhollin1138.com/rss/traffic_rss.php?metro1=col



Movie Listings :  http://todayplus.jhollin1138.com/rss/listings_rss.php

Setup Example (Columbus)  :
http://todayplus.jhollin1138.com/rss/listings_rss.php?theater1=4897


For the Movie Theater Near You, follow the instructions as posted by "MadTxn"  :

Here's a step by step:

1. Go to www.moviefone.com and find the theaters you want.
2. Note the theater id at the end of the URL.
3. Add the script to your RSS feed using "listings_rss.php?theater1=id1&theater2=id2... etc."
4. That's it.


More info can be found starting on the 2nd page of this thread :

There seems to be a problem with the movie listing PHP script.  I am seeing allot of "Warnings" when I run it in my browser.

Ok, fixed now.  Click this link: http://todayplus.jhollin1138.com/rss/listings_rss.php?theater1=4897

Thanks eemond!  :oops:

Instead of changing the rights to the main directory, I have moved the feeds to a sub-folder and updated that directory's rights.  I have updated the URL's in ZapMe1's original post.

Instructions for Traffic Map & Traffic RSS Setup

1)  Start HERE !
2)  Find the Traffic Map for Your City !
3)  Make a note of the "3-Letter City Code" at the end of the URL at the top of your browser..  This is also used in the Traffic PHP Script for Traffic RSS !!
4)  Using This URL : http://fp.images.autos.msn.com/images/mymsn/COL_2.gif, replace the code in RED, with "Your" City Code..
5)  Copy the URL with your city code into the "Radar.txt" file for the Traffic Map Download !!
6)  Use the PHP Script for Traffic RSS;  http://todayplus.jhollin1138.com/rss/traffic_rss.php?metro1=COL, again replacing the City Code in RED, with your city code, and copy to the TP Config / RSS Tab !!

That's it !!  You are now setup for Traffic Map & RSS !!!!  
 :D

I have tried the new movie feeds (thanks jhollin for hosting this!) but when I try my theaters, it doesn't work.

Even just pasting the link in IE on my desktop - I get a page full of errors.

http://todayplus.jhollin1138.com/rss/listings_rss.php?theater1=2204

This is one of my theaters. I also have 2219 and 2217

Is there something I am doing wrong???

Seems to be a problem with 2204 (my 2022 works), go to the source (movies.yahoo.com) and see if anything strange.

What't your theater zipcode and name?

Works on my server. Try the following from your Browser:

http://24.34.15.45/rss/listings_rss.php?theater1=2204

Appears to be a problems on the TP Host Server. I'll take a look.

Works in my desktop browser.

And changing it the TP config works.

If it is okay, can I continue to use your server?

How come TP server doesn't like it?
