Hi

I am looking for a script to automatically convert one of my websites to a rss feed. The html website has around 500 articles and its rather difficult for me to manually compose the rss feed.

The free software I found on the net only seem to allow me to convert one file at a time to rss- I would like the whole website to be converted to a rss feed.

What I am looking for : convert the title of every page to the <title> tag, the meta description to <description tag>

Would appreciate any pointers.. (I am too lazy to write my own script)

The first question I would ask is who wants to read your entire site as an RSS feed? Typically one would add information to an RSS feed as it is updated. The feed's purpose is to alert subscribers to new or updated content.

I agree- I am really looking for a script that automatically adds any newly created page to the rss feed- like a xml sitemap that automatically updates the sitemap.

Most any of the blog/portal/CMS packages will do just that. Every new page gets added to the RSS feed at the same time the content is created.
