Description

Features

Include URL is a WordPress plugin for seamless inclusion of data from remote urls, optionaly passing GET parameters to it..

  • Get remote url content
  • Pass given GET params to url
  • Cache fetched content localy in WordPress DB (for extremely slow sources)

Usage

  [include-url href="<URL>" params="param1,param2,param3..." timeout="seconds" cache="seconds" allow-file="1" allow-shortcode="1"]
  • href – url starting with http:// or https:// (required)
  • params – list of comma separated GET parameters, that should be passed to include url
  • timeout – request timeout in seconds
  • cache – cache request data localy in wordpress database (default = 0 seconds / disabled)
  • allow-file – allow file:// urls in href (default = 0 / disabled, 1 = prepend file with document root, 2 = use absolute path)
  • allow-other – allow any other protocol supported by cURL
  • allow-shortcode – allow and process wordpress shortcodes in included content

Examples

  • Search frontend page for SOLR

    [include-url href=”http://localhost:8080/solr/core1/select?wt=xslt&wt=results.xslt” params=”q,fq” cache=”1800″]

This requests data from local SOLR instance, that will return search results formated as HTML (ie. table) via its XSLT handler, optionally passing q (query) and fq (filter) params to it. Data will be cached for 1800 seconds in WordPress database.

  • Read file from document_root

    [include-url href=”file://robots.txt” allow-file=”1″]

  • Read file specified by absolute path

    [include-url href=”file:///var/www/html/robots.txt” allow-file=”2″]
