in thread How to get raw node content


Thanks, I just gave that a try, and it worked nicely for a non-reaped node. That'll give me what I'm looking for, 95% of the time.

However, I can't seem to make it work for a reaped node. I tried:;displaytype=xml

But in return I got:

<node id="1199455" title="Reaped: Re: .pl to .exe" created="2017-09-15 + 09:28:14" updated="2017-09-15 09:28:14"> <type id="11">note</type> <author id="52855">NodeReaper</author> <data> <field name="doctext"> This node was taken out by the [NodeReaper] on [localtime://2017-09-15 + 16-15-40]<BR>Reason: &#91;[hippo]]: Unformatted, without context and + apparently off-topic<p>You may view [href://?op=viewreaped;node_id=1 +199455|the original node and the consideration vote tally].</p> </field> <field name="root_node">288628</field> <field name="parent_node">288628</field> </data> </node>

So I tried changing it to:;node_id=1199455;displaytype=xml

And got:

<node id="53641" title="Visit Reaped Nodes" created="2001-01-23 00:08: +15" updated="2005-08-22 15:36:03"> <type id="14">superdoc</type> <author id="937169">InGoodGraces</author> </node>

Edit: on re-reading your reply, I looked for and found the XML link you mentioned. I hadn't noticed it. Unfortunately, it also fails on a reaped node.

    I think this is intentionally so (or simply nobody cared to provide this xml interface here)

    Reaped nodes are meant to become invisible to discourage spammers.

    And I'm not sure if really all input text is passed thru, since this might lead to a vulnerability for the viewer.

    Anyway I once was capable to download all reaped nodes in order to train a spam filter, but I can't recall how I did it.

    Probably I only got it in the HTML form.

    Actually I see an xml-displaytype link in the original text of reaped nodes, but only in my role as pm-dev.

    And it doesn't show the raw text but the perl-code producing this node.

    In other words this "show original and vote tally" node with op=viewreaped; belongs a totally different class of nodes.


      Thanks for your help and follow-up, I appreciate it.
