Hi,

I want to create an RSS Feed that gets all it's data from an SQL Database. I have gotten that part sorted out, but I want to make it so that when a user types in, for example, a stock ticket such as DJTI, my site generates an RSS feed with that title, and retrieves information for that ticket from the MySQL Database. Is there any way I can do this?

Think of an RSS feed as just another page - but with an .xml extension and very strict requirements for tags.

There are lots of resources online for the correct way to format an RSS feed. Make sure you tag any html with cdata.

For one of my sites, I just rewrite certain .php pages to .xml with htaccess.

Good luck.
