alias checkupdate {

    var %data = $decode($gettok(%tmp,2,32),m)
    var %id = $gettok(%data,1,59)
    var %headline = $gettok(%data,2,59)
    var %url = $gettok(%data,3,59)
    if (%dandy.latest.id != %id) {
      set %dandy.latest.id %id
      .msg q settopic %dandy.latest.channel %url ~ %headline
    }
    sockclose $sockname
  }
  unset %tmp
}
ON *:CONNECT: {

  .timer 0 120 .checkupdate

}


The script requires a PHP counterpart that i put into my index.php

Code: Select all
$latest = mysql_query("SELECT id,headline FROM blog ORDER BY id DESC LIMIT 1");
$lid = mysql_result($latest,0,0);
$lheadline = mysql_result($latest,0,1);
header("Custom-Latest-Post: ".base64_encode(sprintf("%d;%s;http://%s/?id=%d&headline=%s",$lid,$lheadline,$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'],$lid,$lheadline)));


You might have to change the mysql_query according to your database structure the first field returned must be the id and the second the headline or topic.
The scripts sets a header which is ignored by browsers but the script will read it.
Also in the header you might want to change the url currently it's set to http://yourdomainname.com/?id=<id>&headline=<headline>
