    I've tried to get some screens of the setup. This is what I have installed on the Xibo server
    • Xibo (kind of obvious really)
    • Wordpress v3.2.1 with the following plugins
    1. Active Directory Integration (users are placed in a no access group at first log on)
    2. Content Scheduler (enable post expiry)
    3. Issuu PDF Sync (allows easy publishing to Newsletter site and returns embed code)
    4. Quick Post Widget (a really clever plugin that allows WYSIWYG post creation from the front end)
    5. Restrict Categories (allows to add users to only be able to add posts in a single category i.e. English teacher can only post to English)
    6. Theme My Login (login to wordpress from the front end)
    7. User Role Editor (allows to change or add wordpress roles i.e. I've added a Staff role that can post but not delete and the NoAccess role that can only view)
    Obviously any theme will be fine for this but I used zeeBusiness because it allowed for multiple custom menus.
    Xibo layouts are scheduled for each department to have a few minutes of rss feed time per hour. The feeds can be retrieved using http://xibo-server/wordpress/category/{whatever}/feed/rss2/.
    This screenshot is the result of all the plugins on the wordpress installation

    The menu options run as follows
    • New Message; Self explanatory really but always defaults to the staff members allowed category. The Quick Post Widget is displayed in the page and allows some arbitrary formatting to keep all messages the same style. I have all mine formatted <H2> but the staff can add colours and italic text to emphasize words if necessary
    • Screen Manager; A link to the Xibo backend. Kept in for my use only really so may move it to the Admin menu.
    • Add Team; This is a link to a football team flash animation so that new teams can be added to the displays. I can make this available I think if anyone wants to (need to check license on flash file as it was developed for us.)
    Xibo accomplishments!-footballanim.jpg
    • Photo Slideshow; Links to the gallery 3 page. Users can add a gallery after which an email is sent to me so that I can schedule it in the appropriate place.
    • Post Overview; Is just that so that I can edit any typos if necessary (not that we have teachers who can't string a coherent sentence together)
    • Admin Backend; Some links for me to help with the admin. wp-admin dashboard, MySQL admin, Xibo support etc.
    Hope some of this info is useful for you.

    Unhappy

    Hi guys

    We've tried to get Wordpress running on our server alongside Xibo but it's telling us that PHP isn't installed! What version of PHP are you running on? We're worried that upgrading to 5.5 might stuff up Xibo.

    Please advise!

    Cheers

    it shouldn't stuff up xibo - i've got it running here, if its internal only then you could try using an older version of wordpress but i wouldn't use on a publicly accessible site as they release security updates with newer versions

    not sure what kind of data you are after but I have a similar system for a Sims export for birthdays which is imported into MySQL and then displayed via a PHP page.

    Could you post how you managed to get this working Glennda? Ive tried and failed!

    My God - I've just started setting up Xibo today on Xampp. A 2003r2 server. This is all over my head but an interesting read.

    In the folder hosting the xibo web files create a folder such as display and one inside that called pictures pictures. Create a PHP page in that folder called index.php with the following info in php tags (you may need somebody to check this php as i copied it offline without testing as when i set this up it was at another school @webman might be able to help) You can then share the Pictures folder as you would a normal folder on windows with staff having relevant perms and then they can drop stuff into it and it should be displayed. You would just need to point an xibo area to http://Xiboservername/display/index.php (or if you run xibo as a subfolder http://xiboservername/xibo/display/index.php)

    PHP Code:
    $handle opendir('pictures'); 
    while (
    false !== ($file readdir($handle))){ 
      
    $extension strtolower(substr(strrchr($filename'.'), 1)); 
      if(
    $extension == 'jpg' || $extension == 'gif' || $extension == 'png'){ 
        
    // now use $file as you like 
      

    }
    foreach(
    glob('userImages/*/HD/{*.jpg,*.gif}'GLOB_BRACE) as $image

    echo 
    "<img src ="' . $image .' " />"

    Its not working on xibo client (we have paste the embed code in a layout through web embed option).

    When we create a html page file of the same code it plays the you tube video on IE.

    Thanks
