I am not sure to what extent this has been discussed before and it might be a stupid beginners question but I will try anyway:

I want to publish RSS news headlines from different sources on my homepage. The perfekt tool for that would be something like a CMS for RSS feeds where I can scan headlines from different sources and easily "click" them together. The application should be template based for easy site integration.

Any ideas?

I had to write my own script to do that.
Its pretty straight forward stuff

I am also an RSS beginner.

And I believe my question is at least as simple:

Yahoo provides rss scripts for newsfeeds or web publication.

They already provide the script for that. e.g.:
[rss.news.yahoo.com...]

What I want to know is: How do I do publish it on my site?

Moreover does exactly that - gathers information from various news sources and shows the latest ones, in-relation to your chosen category:
[w.moreover.com...]

For this, you can use a RSS parser or make one of your own. Try a query for "RSS parser" at HotScripts.com if you are looking for one.

It's not free though, is it? I mean you can't just use those RSS feeds on your site without a licence or paying a fee, though it's hard to find any details on their site.

Moreover: "Pricing for Moreover Solutions starts at $ 6,000, and scales according to options and customization..."

Too expensive for me but it sure looks nice.

You may want to try <snip> as the service is very much like moreover's and starts at $50 a month I think.

AmeriClicks, please read the TOS - no link drops or self-promotion is aloud at the boards.

I'd say use the Yahoo News Feeds - they are no different to the moreover ones IMHO.

[news.yahoo.com...]

sidyadav:

this is what I'm asking.

I want to use yahoo rss. I just don't know how to do it.

What is a parser? is it difficiult to use or is it just a few lines of xml script?

ssskaya,
An rss parser, is a script which can be written in any language, to parse RSS/XML data and show it in proper HTML format.

It depends on your preferable language, of what sort of parser you are looking for. Ultimately, they all do the same thing.

Here is a list of some significant rss parsers in various languages:

  • Magpie RSS Parser [magpierss.sourceforge.net] - PHP
  • RSS.py [mnot.net] - Python/PyXML
  • Simpel RSS reader [html.dk] - ASP

    There are of course, many others - which is why I suggested searching at HotScripts.com as you would have a large range of variety, but the most popular language used to build RSS/RDF parsers is in my opinion, PHP. But then again, some prefer PERL.

    If you need any more help on RSS parsers, sticky me - I can send you the code for one of my parsers which I built using PHP.
