Hi all,

I've successfully isntalled my Killboards and got it all working, however, I would like it to update all the kill mails for my alliance automatically. I know this can be done using a cron job but I need some help on how to actually set it up.

I looked into the CCP API but using this method it only pulls my corps kills and not my alliances, so I then looked into feed syndication, but I couldn't make that work, so I then looked at the battleclinic mod which I also couldn't get to work (just kept getting white box and no kill mails which seems a common fault).

Any suggestions / advise / tutorials would be a great help.

Thanks in advance.

(I tried the EDK forums for this but got no response)

simplest way to get this working is to use a directors API key from each corp in the alliance to pull all the kills in ;)

Yea that means getting all the CEO's to give me their full API key though... If I can get the IFeed Syndication to work I can use a cron job to make it check every hour or w/e.

Wikipedias article on Cron's is actually quite ok for a wikipedia article, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cron

unfortunately at the moment the API allows either to pull your private kills, or when you are a director the kills of your corp - doesnt need to be CEO, but director is required.

Besides feeds only being as good as the sources for the feed - why didnt you get it to work?

No suprise there, over the years battleclinic has had a history
of tampering with the mails so people cant import 'em

well,
- you could explain why feeds didnt work, so maybe someone has advice there
- you could get a hosted board by someone like evsco (http://evsco.net/) where all boards share one database, and most mails end up anyways
- you could sort the API keys of your alliances directors
- you could fix the battleclinic mod so it works with current battleclinic and pray they dont change stuff (Again)

Hi there and thanks for the responce.

The issue i have with the feed syndication is as follows:

I input the feed data + the last known kill id and all i get is:

Feed: http://feed.evsco.net/?a=feed&alli=Imperium+Alliance
0 kills were posted and 0 were skipped.
