This Instructable shows you how you can embed a list of links to your Instructables on your website, formatted just like on your profile page. They're updated automatically each time the page is loaded and are sortable by views
. You can navigate through the pages of your Instructables by clicking the "Prev
" and "Next
" buttons, or by editing the "offset" in the URL.
Your profile page is fetched using PHP and the links and pictures scraped out of the html code from Instructables. These are then rearranged to look like the standard Instructables layout, your visitors clicking on them will take them straight to your Instructable.
All images are "hot linked
", so there's no impact on your web server storage or bandwidth. All of this is done with the kind permission of Eric
A list of some of the sites that have successfully installed this so far:redtorope.com/instructables
A full list of users that have used it successfully will be added to the last step and updated when I learn of new uptakes.
Many thanks to gmjhowe
for helping me write the HTML and CSS used to make the results the PHP finds look pretty and for taking great photos for this Ible.
I have previously fetched web pages with Perl; this is my first attempt with PHP. A list of resources in the last step shows the websites that I used to learn how to do this, all of these were invaluable.
