Fail to run RSS
Using "Short Guide" by Rincey

 10:04 am on Aug 30, 2006 (gmt 0)

Short guide available at [webmasterworld.com...]

I thought I would be able to include RSS on my website using the great tutorial from Rincey but it failed.

1/ I have include error_reporting(E_ALL); in my feed.php but get no error message.
2/ When running feed.php, it take some time to parse and when done, I get an empy HTML document.
3/ I have unslashed the print_r($rss) in feed.php but get nothing.
4/ Lastly, a file has been created in the templates_c folder, file compiled from /rssdemo/templates/itemlist.html

Any idea what may be wrong?
Thank you

It works now. Sorry for my last message
Problem was due to firewall or connection since the script was working when creating a XML file on the server.

Thanks Rincey!

One more tip regarding Rincey tutorial [webmasterworld.com...]

You want to force magpierss to input/output UTF, use
define("MAGPIE_DETECT_ENCODING", false);

But I am still having problems to return a certain number of items. I have used the code given in Magpierss FAQ but it doesn't work
$rss = fetch_rss($url);
$items = array_slice($rss->items, 0, 3);

Any help to limit number of items using Magpiers would be very nice!
