Deleted User (New Admin) 4/24/2003 7:14 AM EST : Somewhere to store XSLs

Deleted User
Posts: 0

Hey guys,

I'm really disapointed because I just learned that my hosting provider for 5 domains that I use does not offer XML/XSL support.  Now I'm in a bind because I have no where to serve my personal XSL files from.  Is there anyone that can help me out with suggestions as to where to store the XSL files?

Aaron, does it look like we may have a place to upload them to here one day?

Thanks alot everyone!

I use www.domaindlx.com for all my stuff.  They are free and give you loads of space.

Your hosting provider does not have to support XSL. The XSL logic is all handled by guildportal. You only need to store the XSL files (which are text files) on your server. These would usually be smaller than most medium-sized graphics files so space should not be an issue.

Guildportal will then combine the XSL file you provided, and the XML data file supplied by Mythic, Verant, etc, and combine them to produced a formatted page with all the nifty details.

Oh, ok.  See, thats what I had expected. Only, when I redirected the file it wouldn't work.  Hmm...I'll have to play around with it.

Thanks for the pointer though Commerick.  I really appreciate knowing that I had thought right originally, and I'm just a knucklehead for doing something stupid wrong.  heh ...

Q10261 - FAQ: Where did the XML Web Service go?

The XML web service that returned a full roster listing for all members of your guild has been rendered obsolete by the new v2 rostering system. The sheer amount of data that is possible to have returned from the roster if we were to include all the data necessary for admins to build their displays (skills, public journal entries, custom game field data, etc) is too prohibitive for us to allow our parsers to run against custom XSL stylesheets in order to return a roster. The current system, with a streamlined display that has a single line per character and the ability to see extensive details for that character by clicking on their hyperlinked name, is what we are now offering.


Hopefully this will become functional in the future. The XML/XSL Transformation content still works however. You just have to supply your own XML file at the moment.

Commerick, Thanks so much for the inspiration.  I finally figured out what I was doing wrong and I got it all working.

I took the liberty of basing alot of my xml off your stuff, but customized it all for my site and needs.

Thanks SO MUCH!!  I'm very pleased (see Craft Tent and Roster):

VERY nice - love the roll call of your site with photos.

I cant even get the xml for the server status to work right on ours

I think i will just give up (no one helps me).

If anyone is bored and willing to help on ours would be greatly appreciated. I am sure it would only take you guys 5 mins probably. Where it has been 2 weeks for me completely wrecking our site

I am particularly impressed by your photo gallery. Is that a site of your own?
