Basically I have a node type which I've named "rss". Its purpose is exactly as I'm sure you guessed, all of these nodes are available as an rss view at a specific url (ex:
When a node of that type gets created (or updated I suppose) I need to make an http request to a specific url (the details to that are irrelevant to this question).
So lets say I create a new "rss" post on my drupal site, after it gets submitted I need an http request to the url ex:
I know that I can make such a request happen with the visit url function in actions core module, and "trigger" it on node creation (not of a specific type though) but I think it does exactly that, and actually VISITS the url, whereas I just need it to make a curl type request.
I'm also using the scheduler module, so posts of this type can be scheduled, so I would need to trigger the action in sync with the schedule, if it is scheduled to be posted at a certain time/date, that is.
I'm guessing I need to use some sort of hook functionality and make my own module, true? Or is there any other way of doing this?
