I was looking to do was to create a self-hosted site using Wordpress where I could use the RSS feed to show a full article. Is that possible? Thanks!

Do you mean pull an RSS feed into your website and display in it's entirety? IF so, yes but only if the publisher of the feed is providing the full article.

I think it is possible but it's not reputable to get RSS feeds from various unreliable sources. Just take note of the value the RSS is feeding your website.

I took a look and saw the code and that's the problem. You cannot place PHP code directly into a Post or Page as it will not be processed. You either need to use a Plugin that processes the PHP OR (the better way) is to build a custom page.

Thanks for responding. Still lost though. Can anyone lead me to a tutorial, or video, that shows me how? I tried installing a plugin and didn't see anything after that....

Where, or how, do I edit a Wordpress page? I'm a TOTAL rookie when it comes to this stuff but willing to learn...

If you install one of the plugins that allows WP to process PHP then go back to the page where you pasted that code and be sure to click on the HTML tab (far right corner of the editor box). Then paste your code in.

If you paste your code into the editor while in visual mode, those < > will be converted into their HTML code equivalents - and effective disable the script.

To learn more about customizing WordPress, go here: [codex.wordpress.org...] Yes, I know it's a LOT to absorb - but that's what you need to do if you want to learn. :)
