Posted by judhudson on July 2, 2009

What a way to kick start the month of July – 3 new Spore API apps were found viewing this thread in the Sporums.

Sporecast Signature

A 158-line PHP script to generate a forum signature with a latest Sporecast asset. It only needs three lines of configuration (one is optional) and a base image like this one. (A template is included in the .zip.)

Here’s how you can use it:

Download the code from here.

On lines 3 and 4 of sig.php, change the Sporecast ID and (optionally) the font location.
On line 2 of .htaccess, change the /spore/ to the location on your website the files are. For example, if sig.php is accessible at http://example.com/sporesig/sig.php, use RewriteBase /sporesig/

Upload it to your server and go to the sig.php file. You’ll get a few error messages, but don’t worry. Refresh the page and the error messages will be gone and your signature will be there!

The signature will only update once every 10 minutes to make it faster.

Sporecast Voting

Sporecast ID can be changed in the URL on the site.
