Not sure what file you downloaded and why ... To make a news block, go to the Block Editor (from the Admin menu) and create a portal block. Under "Portal Block Options", where it says "RDF URL", enter the URL of the other site's news feed, e.g. http://www.geeklog.net/backend/geeklog.rdf for this site's news feed, and save the block. You may need to hit reload before it actually shows up. Or were you talking about something else? bye, Dirk

I think you are referring to the geeknews.php page created by TomW. See example here.

The steps are as follows:

1) Create a portal block with the URL to the Geeklog site you would like to include. For example, to set-up a portal block for this site, the RDF URL would look like this: http://www.geeklog.net/backend/geeklog.rdf

2) Edit geeknews.php to include each portal block as follows (using this site again as an example):

$_NEWS['geeknews'] = '1';

If you still get no results then go back and enable the portal block. Make sure the content shows up in the block first. Then disable it and hit the geeknews.php page again.
