Integrate plugin into functions.php WordPress

  • SOLVED

Hello! I'm trying to have my new site as plugin-free as possible. I would like to integrate this Dribbble plugin into my functions file as a widget instead of having it load like a plugin. Any help is appreciated!


<?php

function wpDribbble() {
include_once(ABSPATH . WPINC . '/feed.php');

$options = get_option("widget_wpDribbble");
$playerName = $options['playerName'];

if(function_exists('fetch_feed')):
$rss = fetch_feed("http://dribbble.com/players/$playerName/shots.rss");
add_filter( 'wp_feed_cache_transient_lifetime', create_function( '$a', 'return 1800;' ) );
if (!is_wp_error( $rss ) ) :
$items = $rss->get_items(0, $rss->get_item_quantity($options['maxItems']));
endif;
endif;

if (!empty($items)): ?>
<ol class="dribbbles">
<?php
foreach ( $items as $item ):
$title = $item->get_title();
$link = $item->get_permalink();
$date = $item->get_date('F d, Y');
$description = $item->get_description();

preg_match("/src=\"(http.*(jpg|jpeg|gif|png))/", $description, $image_url);
$image = $image_url[1];
if(!$options['bigImage']) {
$image = preg_replace('/.(jpg|jpeg|gif|png)/', '_teaser.$1',$image); #comment this out if you want to use the big 400x300 image
}
?>
<li class="group">
<div class="dribbble">
<div class="dribbble-shot">
<div class="dribbble-img">
<a href="<?php echo $link; ?>" class="dribbble-link"><img src="<?php echo $image; ?>" alt="<?php echo $title;?>"/></a>
<a href="<?php echo $link; ?>" class="dribbble-over"><strong><?php echo $title; ?></strong>
<span class="dim"><?php echo $options['playerName'] ?></span>

</a>
</div>

<?php endforeach;?>

<?php endif;
}

Hi,

If the whole plugin is in a single php file.
For example plugin.php

1) Remove the plugin header, which is the comments.
2) save the plugin.php into your theme folder and same level with functions.php
3) in functions.php put the below codes,


require_once(dirname(__FILE__) . "/plugin.php");


Hope I did not make a mistake here.

Thanks,
Denzel

I seem to be getting a 500 error with this fix.

Hi,

Does it only show this 500 error, there is some kind of error line number?

Thanks.
Denzel


Denzel Chia comments:

Hi Mike,

If you don't mind, Please email me your theme to [email protected]
I can add it in for you.

In fact I had it working on my localhost using twenty ten.

You need to change the following too.

from


$dir = WP_PLUGIN_URL.'/'.str_replace(basename( __FILE__),"",plugin_basename(__FILE__));


to


$dir = get_bloginfo('template_url')."/";


so that path to image is
http://example.com/wp-content/themes/twentyten/images/dribbblesprite.png


from


add_action("plugins_loaded", "wpDribbble_init");


to


add_action("init", "wpDribbble_init");


So that the widget will show.

Thanks.
