Hello:

I'm new in RSS but determined to develop only RSS feed sites.

I've found several software (free or not) and have tried one of them - called Carp - but nothing worked. The initial setup program couldn't access the network.

I wonder whether any of you have ever used this program and know how to make it work. Or if you have used any other programs that work even better?

I've heard about RSS Equalizer. Any thoughts?

I have multiple of my sites hosted under one package. I'd like to know if this kind of hosting would affect me to implement the software

Any advice would be appreciated

Thanks

I'm currently using Carp to develop a content only site. It is working for me but somewhat slow to load, see here: <snip> (I'm still creating)
I'm not sure if the slow loading is from the program or if that is a limitation of RSS feeds, because I have not used any other as of yet.

To use the free version of Carp, your webpages must be saved as .php extensions and of course the web server must support PHP.

I like Carp because it is easy to configure and edit feeds.

If anyone know about RSS and slow loading please ellaborate? If slow loading pages is not RSS related please inform me? Thanks.

FeedForAll <snip> is another which I was looking into, but I haven't yet got it to work flawlessly. A template must be created in order to display the feeds.

There are many of them out there. <snip>

If you have more questions about Carp, please ask.

If all else fails try doing a google for RSS, RSS creators, RSS scrapers, RSS scraping, how to display rss on website, displaying RSS, etc. You should come across something.

Wish you the best.

Regards.

Hi:

Thank you all very much for the kind reply. Thought I wouldn't get any answer since it was pretty quiet early on and I had not checked this board till today after I received a reply notification.

I have been checking all over the internet for related information and have since learned a lot more. I've tried various software including Movable Type, WordPress, etc. Though they are not quite like what I was originally looking for, they turned out to be what I like more.

I have a lot questions about Movable Type in particular. I am going to buy the 'bible' and hopefully will have my questions answered. If I have extra questions, I'll come here for help

Thanks again

snakebaby,

Take a look at RSStatic. It aggregates the news feeds and also creates an archive of the feeds you have received. You can visit their site and read about the script and view a demo and also do a simulation with a particular rss feed so you can see how it will look on your site. It is a free script and is being offered under a GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE.

Thanks, classa, for pointing me to another useful site. I am taking the time checking on it. It seems to be a pretty nice tool to use, especially compare to RSS Equalizer.
