My script for importing a bunch of pages into Joomla has matured some. It's now the bulkimport project at JoomlaCode. Anyone using the old version of my script should probably watch the new project from now on.
I have a site I'm migrating from straight HTML to Joomla, and I have a bunch of HTML files I want to load into it. I wrote a perl script that automates all this. It reads the HTML file to determine the title of the page, it looks at the file's modification date to determine the "publication date" for Joomla, and then it makes a MySQL database connection and executes the query.
There's a random images module for Joomla that I use in some places. However, i wanted to have random images appear in the body of one specific content item, and not anywhere else. I pulled together a few technologies, including:
- Blue Lights Template
- Random Image Module
Together, they let me do it. Read on for the full scoop.
