Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Well there are numerous types of RSS software available. What function do you need the software to perform?
Does it need to create/write a feed?
Does it need to read/parse a feed?
Is the feed to be read by a website, or on your own computer?
Are you trying to let other sites use your feed?
What language would you want the program in?
What type of server side scripting are you using, it is going to be hard for anyone to help without that info.
Probably not. It would be a complex thing to do. The reason being is what tag in the html page gets made into the title for the RSS link? Or which HTML tag gets used for the description for the RSS? Or which HTML would be the URL to the link items in the feed? Or which tag would tell the program where one item from the feed begins and where on ends? If you are not dealing with objects then you will find this hard.
For dynamic feeds what you want is a script on your server that grabs specific pages you want feeded and puts their info into an XML file and then makes that available to readers.
If you want a static one then just write it in XML, probably would take less to do it that way then do it all in HTML and then convert it. The format for the file is everywhere and it is simple to create a file.
what program do i get to have user post their own, rss feeds on to my site something like rss community.
I am sure what ever RSS community is using is something they had built for them or built themselves, I doubt there is software out there that will make your website have all the feature of another.
If that is the case it seems like you will need a parser, and a way to have users add their feed to your list?
For setting up a parser w/ a template you can try what is said here: [webmasterworld.com...]

2. black seeks ..........
and so on
I need everything to be done automatically via my web server.
