rss feed question
I am working on a website and am trying to figure out how to include live news headlines from websites like rootly.
Basicly im looking for a good tutorial on what I need to do to get a customizable news headline bar.
Example of what i want to do is simple: www.distrowatch.com
A couple of columns down on the left you will see Linux/Unix News and the rootly logo.
Look for "news syndication" or "site news aggregators" on the scripts sites or google. Many options are available to do this.
"Obsolesence is just a lack of imagination."
If your ambitious, you could use the PHP SimpleXML extension to parse the feed, and put the headlines in an array, then display them using a foreach loop.
Also, http://www.rootly.com/tools/widget/ is exactly what you want (I think)
