Hello,

Long time fan of HFS here, and I try my best to learn everything I can from the wiki and the forum before posting, but I'm having trouble figuring this out.

Is there anyway to display a list of the top ten latest files that were uploaded? (I'm using Beta 271)

Any advice would be well received.

Thanks,

sorry for the late reply.
it is possible.
anyway HFS by itself doesn't hold a list of uploaded files, you must create this list yourself.
use the [upload completed] event http://www.rejetto.com/wiki/index.php/HFS:_Event_scripts
store the name of the item in a variable or a file.
a way is to treat the list as a text, and use a line for every item.
you put the new one on top of others.
Code: [Select]
[upload completed]
{.set|#uploads|%item-name%
|mode=prepend.}

but you should also discard lines over 10th.
use {.for.} to run 10 times {.pos.} then {.cut.} the rest of the string.
This is left as homework ;)

after you got your list in memory, you use it as you like.
a plus would be to {.save.} it every time it is changed, and {.load.} it at event [start]
so it won't clear at every restart of HFS.

Alright, I'm committed to this.
So just for testing purposes, I'll use a variable because that seems like it's easier.

In my macros I put:

Code: [Select]
[upload completed]
{.set|variablerecentuploads|%item-name%
|mode=prepend.}

This should now start logging the names of uploads into a sort of list with "variablerecentuploads" for a name, and each new item is represented by $1, $2, $3, etc. as I can sort of tell from the wiki?(http://www.rejetto.com/wiki/index.php/HFS:_scripting_commands#Variables_and_functions)

Now, assuming that's correct, in order for me to display this list, I am a little confused. Should I put something like this somewhere in my template?

Code: [Select]
{{.^variablerecentuploads|$1.}}to display the first "spot" on the list?

Then follow with:

Code: [Select]
{{.^variablerecentuploads|$2.}}
{{.^variablerecentuploads|$3.}}
{{.^variablerecentuploads|$4.}}
etc... ?

Is there something similar you could direct me to so that I could read up on this?

Thanks for your direction.

<3

nope: your variable is not an indexed table at the moment, is just a text with several lines.
you should go in the direction i told you in my previous message, but i understand it requires programming skills, most people don't have.
in next release (273) i'm introducing some changes that will ease this task a bit. A script like this will be then possible


firstly i copy the list, because we'll destroy it in the process
{.set|#x|var=#uploads.}

{.for|i|1|10|{:
  at number {.^i.} we got {.chop|#x|{.chr|13.}.}
:}

The attached were posted here some time ago (don't remember by who).
New-files works pretty well.
The filelist.tpl is interesting, but doesn't work very well.
Maybe these will give some ideas to work from.
