That's what blog software does.
A simple comments feed would make an RSS feed that contained what users input into the comments field.

Yeah... I don't want to use a blog. I need a program to develop feeds and a way to pull such information. If I wanted a blog I would install a blog.
I could draw a diagram if my original post isn't making sense? Offer on the table.

You don't have to use blog software to make a blog. You could use blog software simply to control the forms and have it spit out the feeds you wanted.

Okay, I understand what you're talking about now.
So basically use the RSS engine of say WP and direct the feeds onto a separate page without a backlink to the blog?
I know WP can do automatic posting, but I'm not sure how reliable using a blog system is. I don't mind programming my own CMS for it, it's just that I'm running under a tight schedule to get a site up. I'll try figuring out how to do what you said this week, I just hope it works as good as you say it does. :)

I was thinking more along the lines of something like MovableType, which would publish statically. You could put the form into your template and nobody would be the wiser. You may be able to manage similar with WP.
I was suggesting that because you indicated the 'lazy' factor in your initial post. ;)
Hope it works out for you.

FeedForAll has an SQL2RSS script, which will create RSS feeds from a database. As the database updates the feeds update is this what you want?

@ Bill: Thanks for the link, read about it but it's just a blog software that's weighted for business use?
@ MayaLocke: Not really, no. But thanks, I'll keep this thread bookmarked for future reference.
Would it be possible to create a forum section on my site, hide it from everyone but myself and use the forum's built in RSS engine to output the feed onto the home page or a remote site even?

MT is just an older blog platform than WP. It's simpler to template for in my experience. That's all.
Sounds like overkill.
Why not simply take a free feed editor like FeedEdit, fill out your feed and post it to your site?
I only suggested the blog software because I thought you wanted other people to be making feeds for you. If it's just you then use an offline feed editor.

That's exactly what I wanted, just myself coding the feed. I just wanted something to do it for me after I inputed the needed variables.
Oh Bill. LOL
Thanks, sorry for the super late reply. :D
