Implementing RSS Feeds On A Website

 8:15 pm on Jul 17, 2004 (gmt 0)

Hello, I'd like to implement a few RSS feeds into my website - I have not the slightest idea about how I should go about this. I have the links to the feeds - just need a way to display them. How do I do this? My webserver is a Linux box with php/mysql installed.

Thank you!

You'll need a script to display the feeds. You can do it with browser-executed Javascript (easy to paste into your HTML), but the better approach is a server-side script. That way the feed data will be part of the HTML served to the browser or spider, and you won't have to worry about visitors with Javascript turned off or SE bots that don't execute Javascript. Search the PHP section at Hotscripts.com or similar sites for a variety of parsing scripts.

If you are using any kind of CMS on your site, check to see if there's an RSS feature or plug-in that's ready to use; these features are increasingly common.

Services like All Headline News, Moreover and Newsnow will provide JavaScript cut and paste systems. All Headline News does provide a server side parser for linux and I believe that moreover does as well.

As previously stated, although JS is okay using a program to parse it and insert the content into your sites is much much better.
