[Pro] How to show latest events?

Hi all!
I have just finished a simple site for a client where I have used WebYep in order to let the client edit the pages.
The client asked me if there is possible to put a couple of textlines on the startpage, showing every new edit that has been updated since last time one visited the startpage.
(Just so one doesnt need to visit every single page on the site to discover if there has been any updates).
Im sure you know what I mean :wink:

How do I accomplish this function?
(Im using FW Pro 5.3.1).

Thanks,
/Tommy Olsson

What about adding the date to the end of a WebYep story like you would
a blog? (the editor could put this in)

i.e. (updated 18.3.09)

Well, that method still means that you have to visit that specific page to see the update.
I want every new edit/post to show up on the startpage.

Make a new WebYep element on the start page, and have your editor
summarize the changes there, with links. Not automatic like you’d
like, but then WebYep may have some tricks up its sleeve I don’t know
about… We’ll have to wait for Max to chime in.

In theory the WebYep data folder holds the files (with edit dates) you
could take this data from. But these have special file names that
might not relate to your page. Any special coding could be broken if
WebYep decided to change the way they did things in the future.

The person to talk to is Johannes at WebYep. Raise a support ticket
there. He’s helped me with API’s before to do some neat WebYep tricks.

If its a simple site, then letting the site editor list the changes
somewhere might be the easiest soloution.

Hi Samson,
I wrote an action for a project a while ago that used PHP to list all
of the files in a directory that had been modified over a certain
period. The client wanted to see all of the pages that had been
updated in the last two weeks or so. I doubt this would help you,
unfortunately, as I suspect WebYep stores all of it’s data in a
single file or in various page includes. Either way the action would
link you through to various ‘working files’ rather than the final pages.
I suspect the WebYep guys will have a solution for you ready to go but
if you get totally stuck feel free to get back to me and I’ll dust of
the action and see if/how it could be modified to suit your needs.
Regards,
Tim.

Thanks David and Tim for your last comment in this matter.
I do appreciate your suggestions and offers.
I will try a support ticket at WebYep and see what comes out.

Many thanks,

Hi Tommy
Just seen this one so sorry for not responding quickly.
The answer is… uuuummmmmm not sure how to do this automatically. As mentioned before it would be easier to do it manually but if you wanted to create a new webyep instance on a page and then that to be reflected in some sort of home page list which would show the newest at the top etc then I cant think of how to do it except in some sort of manual way. The client could still add a link to the page in question but as far as auto then I dont know. Tims correct about the data list being stored in a single file so that wont help.
I have used an adapted version of the webyep actions so individual items were reflected in different parts of the page (not to be confused with the Global setting) but I think the adapted version needs to be on the same page so I don’t think that works in the way you want it to either.

So for the moment I dont know. Asking Johannes if there is some sort of way of doing this may be your best method, or if tim can adapt his action then that may be an alternative too.
kindest regards max

Thanks Max for your answer.
I suspected myself that the manual way is the only way here.
But since I havent any deep knowledge in coding, I had to ask anyway.
I have a support-question on the webyep-forum in this matter and waiting to get a reply.

Thanks again,
/Tommy
