I cant seem to get my xml file to work properly.. it seems after I add the php code and convert it to php.. some of the xml code is getting messed up..

here is my xml.php code:
<?php echo '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>'; ?>
<?php


// load viewer library
$libraryPath = 'admin/lib/viewer_functions.php';
$dirsToCheck = array('XXXX');
foreach ($dirsToCheck as $dir) { if (@include_once("$dir$libraryPath")) { break; }}
if (!function_exists('getRecords')) { die("Couldn't load viewer library, check filepath in sourcecode."); }

// load records
list($homepage_slidesRecords, $homepage_slidesMetaData) = getRecords(array(
'tableName' => 'homepage_slides',
));
?>
<data>
<!-- banner config setting -->
<setting>
<version>1.0</version>
<!-- banner size -->
<size>499,231</size>
<!-- autoplay or not when init ( 1 or 0 ) -->

<!-- slide time (second) -->
<slidetime>5</slidetime>
<!-- tween motion setting -->

<tweentype>easeInOutBack</tweentype>
<!-- h or v or r (horizontal or vertical or random), mask motion direction-->

<!-- text tween motion setting -->
<texttweentime>0.8</texttweentime>
<texttweentype>easeInOutBack</texttweentype>
</setting>

<!-- banner data source -->
<?php foreach ($homepage_slidesRecords as $record): ?>
<?php foreach ($record['image_upload'] as $upload): ?>
<banner>
<image imageurl="<?php echo $upload['urlPath'] ?>" link="<?php echo $record['link'] ?>"></image>
<text><![CDATA[<font color="#FFFFFF"><a href="<?php echo $record['link'] ?>"><u><?php echo $record['headline'] ?></u></a></font>]]></text>
</banner>
<?php endforeach ?>
<?php endforeach ?>
</data>

Hi there,

It looks like it's displaying correctly (try viewing the source to see the actual output, it won't format correctly in a browser.) Can you send an example of what the output should be?

Hi there,

The two files are actually identical (although your .xml example has an extra entry.) The view in the web browser is misleading -- it's just guessing how you want it displayed, but overall is pretty irrelevent. Whatever you have parsing that XML file (because XML is pretty useless without being parsed) should have no problem with the .php version. :)

If you view the source of the .php version, you'll see that aside for some different spacing, the two files are identical, and that's all the XML parser cares about -- it doesn't matter how it displays in a browser.

ok well look how its acting in the flash... its getting stuck on the first entry:

http://www.vandrewalbanomilam.com/test/index2.php


the number counter should say "1/2" since I have 2 records

then it just gets stuck after the 1st one shows

Re: [s2smedia] XML issue

In the XML, it only looks like there's one entry, not two, so that part is displaying correctly. Can you doublecheck that you have two posts in that section?

Hi there,

Well, your PHP XML file definitely only has one listing showing, so the issue is related to that (the XML file itself is fine.) Can you fill out a support request form? You'll find that here:
