argument keys:

  • site: what site we ask about
  • page: what page (full name) we ask about
  • files: name of files to get meta data of — max 10 of them

returns: dictionary of files. File name is key of each item in it. The value is a dictionary of:

  • size: size in bytes
  • comment
  • mime_type
  • mime_description
  • uploaded_by
  • uploaded_at
  • /download_url: URL to download the file from. For private sites, the URL contains authorization token ?ukey=… valid for about 5 minutes.

This files.get_meta demo uses the sample code below. Create a separate file in your hosted site. Change the $PageName variable to the page that contains the files. Change the $Filearray array to list the file names of interest. Replace the all caps USERNAME, API KEY, and SITENAME with values specific to you and your site.

Sample Code

//set globals before includes
    $newdebuglevel = 0;    
//add includes
//change path to your server location
//set startup parameters for xmlrpc
//change path to your server location
    $GLOBALS ['xmlrpc_null_extension' ] = true;
    $ServerPath = "xml-rpc-api.php";
    $ServerHostName = "";
    $ServerPort = "";
//create a client for your site
    $Client = new xmlrpc_client($ServerPath,$ServerHostName,$ServerPort);
    $Client->setCredentials("USERNAME","API KEY");
    $Client->return_type = "phpvals"; //forces return of page.get_one as php values
    $SiteName = "SITENAME";
////////////test code
////////////code doesn't include error checking
//common example start
    $fileobj = new FilesWikidotMeta($SiteName, $Client);
    $returnarray = array();
    echo "<h3>files.get_meta example</h3></br><hr>";
//change $PageName to the page that contains the files you want information
    $PageName = "CATEGORY:PAGENAME";
//add file names to the $Filearray array to match the files of interest
    $Filearray = array(
    $fileobj->php_files_get_meta($Filearray, $returnarray);
    foreach ($returnarray as $key=>$file){
        foreach($file as $dkey=>$fdat){
            echo $key.": ".$dkey."=>".$fdat."</br>";}}
