[ New Plugin ] DMOZ_Wizard v1

DMOZ_Wizard

Details: http://new.linkssql.net/...amp;page=DMOZ_Wizard

Price: $80 << BUY >>
Availability: Requires Purchasing
Links SQL Version Required:
2.1

Requirements;

  • Links SQL 2.1+

  • UNIX Type Server

  • SSH/Telnet Access

  • At least 2Gb of free space (for downloading, decompressing etc of the content.rdf.u8.gz RDF file) [/url]

Features;[/url]

  • Option to send email after slicing/import...

  • Option to download a remote .sql file, to place in database...

  • Option to execute a local .sql file, to place in database...[/url][/url]

  • Ability to clean database before an import...

  • Ability to backup the database before an import...[/url][/url]

  • Choice of importing 'Top' categories, or a selection of your own choice.

  • Option to check if the category in question exists.

  • ..and more. [/url]

Does;

[/url]

I originally wrote this Plugin for myself, but soon realised how much more use it would be to other LinksSQL users. Basically, what this plugin does is write about 2-3 commands for each category Dump. This makes the whole import process go faster, because you don't have to sit there manually and painstakingly type out all the messages. In short, this Plugin writes a .cgi script, which you then run from Telnet/SSH to do the complete import (from downloading the content.rdf.u8.gz file, to repairing the database count after the installs).

Cheers

Good idea. It would also save time, because it doesn't need to decompress it Smile I'll make the change in a minute.

Version 1.1 is now out.

This include a couple of fixes (if a user enters a / at the beginning of the category name, it will get rid of it, otherwise theimport would not work), and also has a new feature.

When importing specific category now, you can do stuff like;

/Computers/Internet/CyberCafes:::/Cafes

This would import the /Computers/Internet/CyberCafes category from DMOZ, into a category called 'Cafes' in your database.

This update is available for download here: http://new.linkssql.net/page.php?page=account

Due to some updates on DMOZ's site, the RDF file has changed from;

http://www.dmoz.org/rdf/content.rdf.u8.gz

...to...

http://rdf.dmoz.org/rdf/content.rdf.u8.gz

I have made this change in my script, and the current version is now 1.2.

Andy,

Whats the best way to get support for this.

Have several questions.

a) Can I configure the default to be a content.* dump in a common directory? I don't want a 200MB download to be done several times.

b) Can you confirm that the line Arts/Movies/Home_Video/DVD:::/Websites is correct?

c) I want it to create the categories under /Arts/Movies/Home_Video/DVD in my local directory under /Websites how can this be done?

Re: [shrirch] [ New Plugin ] DMOZ_Wizard v1 In reply to
Hi.

a) You would just need to edit dmoz_cron.cgi. Just comment out lines 26-28.

b) Arts/Movies/Home_Video/DVD:::Websites . Note there is no / in front of the destination category.

c) Yup... just use the above.

Hope that answers your questions Smile

Cheers

Another bug fix.

v1.2.1

This fix is to enable the plugin to 'check' if the custom category you are looking at importing, does in fact exist. It does this by checking the DMOZ site.

Previously it kept hanging, and didn't seem to actually do anything. I've edited the script a bit, and it appears to be working ok now :)

UPDATE: v1.3

This version has a bug fix in it for foreign charachters in the World/Regional categories. iconv must be enabled on your server for this to work.

I've also added a few more extras/fixes. The main ones being;

I've now made it so that you can decide if you want to re-download the content.rdf.u8.gz file (tick box on the setup). This is a great way to save your bandwidth :)

You can now run dmoz_cron.cgi via Crontab (stops timeout problems on some servers). It is also a lot faster. I've had it doing 100,000 links in the space of 10 minutes.

The updated version can be downloaded from:
http://new.linkssql.net/page.php?page=account

This is for the people who already own the plugin, or own the $200 package.

v1.4

Ok, the `iconv` fix kinda fixed the problem (with a few charachters), but there were still a lot of bad ones in there it seems. I've got a script that comes with the DMOZ_Wizard now, that will go through these bad charachters, and replace them with their appropriate ones.

Its not recommended that you run the DMOZ_Wizard on a shared server anyway, as it can take a lot of CPU power to complete.

+ Cronjob Feature Added

I have added a feature, which will allow you to setup (without intervention) a cronjob. This basically means you don't even need to go into SSH to run the process. Literally just setup the process as you normally would, and set the time you want it to run, and voila Cool

Enjoy :)

Re: [Andy] [ New Plugin ] DMOZ_Wizard v2.3 In reply to
Version 2.3 is now available from the download area.

New features include the removal of "iconv" from the import process, as it is now redundent, after the latest changes for the way foreign charachters are handled.

Charachters in UTF-8 format should now be ok for imports. This basically means that it will support the importing of categories in languages such as French, German, Spanish, Italian, etc.

http://www.ultranerds.com/cgi-bin/details/10.html

NB: For those who are upgrading, all you need to do is upload the new version, and overwrite the existing one. Please note, you *may* have to re-enter the email address in the plugin settings.

Re: [Andy] [ New Plugin ] DMOZ_Wizard v2.3 In reply to
Seems there was a bug in this version :(

For those of you using it, you can fix it up by opening up /admin/Plugins/DMOZ_Wizard.pm, and finding;

Code:
print OVERWRITE
#qq|print "Running iconv on $admin_dir/$save_cat.dump, and transfering to $admin_dir/$save_cat.dump.slice ... ";|
# . "\n";
# print OVERWRITE "\`iconv -c -f UTF-8 -t UTF-8 "
# . $admin_dir . "/"
# . $save_cat
# . ".dump > $admin_dir/$save_cat.dump.slice\`;";

Simpley comment out the first line; i.e;

Code:
# print OVERWRITE
#qq|print "Running iconv on $admin_dir/$save_cat.dump, and transfering to $admin_dir/$save_cat.dump.slice ... ";|
# . "\n";
# print OVERWRITE "\`iconv -c -f UTF-8 -t UTF-8 "
# . $admin_dir . "/"
# . $save_cat
# . ".dump > $admin_dir/$save_cat.dump.slice\`;";

The stable version can be downloaded from the members area.

Re: [Andy] [ New Plugin ] DMOZ_Wizard v2.5 In reply to
Version 2.5 is now out Smile

This version has a new feature.

There is now a new script that has been setup in your /admin folder. You can run this from SSH/Telnet, with;

Code:

cd /path/to/your/admin/
nohup perl clean_bad_word_links.cgi > log.txt &
tail -n20 -f log.txt


You should see something similar to (I've only included one test link);

Code:

linkssql@east admin $ perl clean_bad_word_links.cgi
Checking URL: http://www.test.com
checking word: crap
Unvalidating link ID: 1. Reason: "crap" exists in HTML...
Line: this is just a crap test


The theory behind the script;

1) Grab the list of bad words (split with , between the words)
2) Grab the list of URL's to check
3) Check if the bad word exists in the grabbed HTML
a) If the bad word exists, show which word matched, and then unvalidate the link (not perminent)
b) If the bad word doesn't exist, the just leave the link, and move onto the next one.


The new version is available from the download area as of now :)

Cheers

Hey Andy, I have tested the previous version of DMOZ wizard and it did worked like a charm, however the issue is GLinks (dynamic mode) worked very slow (upto 45 to 300 seconds for a page to load) for me when I actually tried to browse the categories. Have you tested the working on of the *entire* dmoz dump on GLinks for loading speed?

Hi,

Yeah, the new version of GLinks doesn't seem to cope quite so well as LinksSQL. However, with a powerful enough server, the entire DMOZ content should be fine.

It sounds more like your server was just too busy =)

Hi Andy,

Thank you for the informative reply.

I tested full DMOZ dump (minus World and Adult Category) in GLinks version on my dedicated server with nothing else on it. The server is Dual Xeon 2.0 Ghz, with 2 GB Ram and SCSI drive.

What do you think.

Re: [HopeForYou] [ New Plugin ] DMOZ_Wizard v1 In reply to
The best way, is to either import each top level category individually (you might not want the world category either, used to have lots of funny characters and stuff).

Or, you could import the whole database, then delete the adult category, or others.

There's a problem with the import wizard and GL3's "tree" structure. In the beta, we had a work around for it, but I just did some new imports, and had loads of orphan categories that had to be fixed. I had to move each "tree" somewhere else, then back, to fix it. None of the repair tree/repair functions worked.

I don't have time to figure out why/what happened with this, I'm too deep into some other stuff at the moment.

*BUT* if you are simply importing the database, and leaving it where it imports, it should work. Maybe brewt could look at an import and figure out what is not happening with the tree system to cause the categories to get "stuck" and not update when renamed/moved.

http://deadmanschest.com was imported from dmoz, quickly, which is when I noticed this.

Note: I plan to delete adult and world categories later.

Actually, the dmoz wizd does all that for you. It will download the content.rdf.gz file, unzip/extract and add in your categories for you. If you run it several times, just uncheck the "re-download content.rdf" box.
Andy was pretty complete in it, I just cleaned up the interface a little. I think the current download includes the cleaner interface.

Re: [HopeForYou] "Incorrect usage" error In reply to
Also,

I have a partially finished plugin that extracts from a dmoz-links install by keywords/search criteria.

So, rather than selecting out a category from DMOZ, you can search a GL3/Dmoz installation by keywords, and export links based on that.

It's not really finished, but it's passed alpha, and I've used it (in manual mode) to set up some niche sites that were not being well handled by the standard dmoz interfaces.

It was a way I thought about to keep people's sites updated, and fresh with content from several Links/GL3 sites over time. So, that a "Nexus" site would run a large databse, bringing in links and data, updating from dmoz, making sure screen shots were available and fresh, etc. You could request new links from a time period and/or search criteria.

I never finished it, I got side tracked with the image/uplaod system(s), but if there a call/need/want for this sort of item I'm happy to discuss it.

There are a lot of side issues trying to maintain compatibility with everyone's site, and that means an importer program that you have to configure to map fields from the "Nexus" database export to your specific one. I never did tackle that <G>. But, I'm always available for paid/commission work :)

I know I posted more about that here, and since I've not posted a lot of other messages the past year or so, searching on my posts should bring up mostly the plugin updates/discussions.
