First, install the Ferguson Moriyama Feed Cache package for Umbraco. Make sure you read the install instructions which explain how to get the package to run as a scheduled task.Grab the URL for your twitter feed, mine is http://search.twitter.com/search.atom?lang=en&q=from%3Adarrenferguson. You can turn any twitter search into an atom feed by visiting search.twitter.com and clicking on the ‘Feed for this query’ button after your search.Next, configure the Feed Cache package to cache your... twitter search to look for hash tags, Umbraco related tweets or whatever you want. There is also a lot more information in the atom feed than I am displaying above and the XLST can be modified to your liking.
a little spring cleaning:
Upgraded to Umbraco 4.7
Set up auto tagging of posts using the awesome OpenCalais API
Rewritten search to use Umbraco Examine
Highlighted search results
Used Umbraco base AJAX to start suggesting results... examine to find similarly
Search result highlighting is based upon the
techniques described over on the wiki at our.umbraco.org and
I've also put together an
Umbraco package which allows you to get examine search result
highlighting up and running quickly.
Finally to have a look at Base AJAX search results in action
just start typing a search term in the search box in the
right hand column. As soon as a match is found a window will pop up
Here is a fun little hack I put together.Visit http://www.bunbohue.co.uk/index.pl?uid=user&pwd=passwordTo get an mp3 file of the 5 latest items in your twitter feed. Although this is a 10 minute hack, I guess there is potential in subscribing to this kind of content.

After a lot of frustration trying to implement content search in Umbraco yesterday I decided that this article may be a good idea.
I wrote it all in one quick sitting, so I haven’t had time to go through it with a fine tooth comb yet and check the spelling and grammar.
The more I write tutorials and docs, the more I become convinced that screencasts are better, so I will try and create the article as a screencast too.
a wiki page over at our umbraco that shows how to highlight
search terms in Umbraco
examine searches using
Lucene.Net.Highlight. Source code is attached to the wiki
The code was lifted from an
original forum post... the result is quite
pleasing - the highlighter will highlight terms even if you are
using fuzzy terms derived from your original search text:
I'd classify this is a 30 minute hack. I don't fully understand
the inner workings of what i've put together. The code effectively
does a search within a search against the query results to perform
the highlighting so I am sure there are efficiency gains to be had.
You can see from the screenshot above that highlighting takes
So before I start out on Part 2 - I should point out you need to read part 1 for this to make any sense. Also thanks for the twitter reaction, we even have a PHP implementation of the runtime now by Gary at https://github.com/garydevenay/Moriyama... how to extend RuntimeController to do more complex things than render a piece of content. Obviously on this blog we have comments, and search and we need more than our RuntimeContentModel to send data back and forth.
It'll depend on the mood I'm in next time I sit down to write.
Thanks for reading and apologies for the not completely random headings. And I'm not withholding code, DM me on Twitter if you'd like access to the repo. I need to tidy lots to make it all readable :)
I'm not really into opinionated blog posts, but just for
If you haven't seen Entourage, then I recommend you watch it.
Here are a couple of clips of Ari -one of the main characters - at
his best. (Not for the easily offended).
I have created an Umbraco package that updates your Twitter status when you publish
certain types of document. You can download
it here. I never thought I'd get into twitter but a number of
friends and techies use it to micro blog what they are interested
in or indeed what they are blogging.
The package is an Umbraco action handler. After install the
configuration can be found in
/umbraco/plugins/FergusonMoriyama/AutoTweet/twitter.config and is
<?xml version="1.0... the
Now for the test. When I hit publish on this blog post my
twitter status should be updated. Obviously it'll be quite
embarrassing if it doesn't work.
This is a very beta/hacked together package based on an idea I
had this morning
I've released a new version of my Umbraco package that sends
tweets when you publish a content node. The package is available to
download from my Umbraco packages
page or the our.umbraco
project page.Features include:Complete rewrite of my previous twitter packageConfigure multiple twitter accounts.Send multiple tweets per publish.Ensure documents are not tweeted on re-publish.Support direct messages and @mentionsSend different tweets per document type.Filter tweets by domain.Includes full PDF manual.So why is this useful? I use the package to publicise blog posts
and to send me a direct message when a comment is left on my blog
so that I can quickly check whether or not it is a spam comment and
act accordingly.I'll provide
I've created an umbraco package that will cache XML feeds - or any other http URL - to disk on your web server. Click here to download the package
The idea came about as a lot of people are displaying feeds on their web pages - flickr feeds, twitter etc. In Umbraco you can cache marcos that read external URLs, but ultimately when the cache expires one user will have to take the hit of requesting this external URL as part of their page download. If the third party server is down - which twitter frequently is - then this can result in a hefty wait until the request times out.
Instructions for using the package are in the readme prior to installation so be sure to read this before proceeding with the install.
