Displaying an RSS feed?

Post by RobertBasil » Sat Mar 06, 2010 4:55 am

I've been reading for 2 days now and I am SO lost. Can someone point this non-programmer in the right direction to figure out how to display an auto-updating RSS feed?

Thanks!

Hello RobertBasil,

First, read the RSS into a variable. You can then use Rev's XML commands and functions to parse the data.

You can also parse the data yourself, with a script. In this case, you'd use offset to find the start and end tags of each item in the RSS.

Lert me know what you choose.

Best,

There is also a RSS sample in the Resource Center (Internet, RSS Feed).
