If you want a quick and easy way to include an RSS feed in a static page, see here.

Examples are here and here.

No, you get T_VARIABLE errors. I get a page of nicely formatted links.
If you post your errors, then we can get constructive...

Will this program make those .rdf files? My error log says "no such file or directory" when it is looking for test.rdf and the only file in my backend directory is geeklog.rdf, which is empty.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

If you read teh explanation on my site, it mentions that the first time that you view the page, the rdf file does not exist so it generates an error. After that, there is no problem as the file is created the first view.

I know it would be better to have some sort of check first, but that would take time...

[edit] that didn't answer your problem, did it. Sorry. You may have a problem with permissions on your backend directory if the file is not being created.

Cheers,

Sorry, should've mentioned -- I did reload several times as your page suggested, but it had no effect.

I fixed the permisions problem on the backend directory, and it is working great now. Thanks!

I try it and I get (on my site, not yours):




PHP Formatted Code
Parse error: parse error, unexpected '<' in /home2/kenosha/public_html/staticpages/index.php(80) : eval()'d code on line 1



I don't think it's anything in your instructions that are going wrong...

I do have PHP in static pages, etc.

A question:
Is it posible to limit the number of news to be displayed using this solution?

Is it possible to limit number of stories? I didn't see a hardcoded number in the code.

When I go to the page to grab the archived file, the formatting is weird. And instead of downloading the archived file, the code for the .tar file displays in my browser window (I tried it in both FireFox and IE).

Is there anywhere else to get a copy of the file? I tried the old geeknews.php page, but that doesn't seem to work with the latest GL release. Thanks!

On Edit: Euan, it looks like all the formatting on your download pages is b0rked. The icons and text are too small to read, and nothing is downloadable from here.

I just tried it on a third machine (Win XP Pro on all of them) and the pages all look the same. Thought you'd like to know.

Edit 2: Just checked it on the lone Mac here, and it looks the same.

Both his forum and downloads are messed up. But you can still download the file by right clicking on it, if you can read those tiny prints, and saving on your computer.

You need to delete the .htm extension in order to extract the archive. I agree that things on his sites don't seems to follow the standard.

Here is how I do RSS in Static Pages:

1. Download the software from http://www.feedforall.com/more-php.htm (It is free)
2. Enable executing PHP from the static page (Groups->Static Page Admin-> staticpages.PHP)
3. Create a Static page
4. Select "Execute PHP"
5. Type something like the following in the static page:

require_once ('http://www.splix.com/rss/rss2html.php?XMLFILE=http://www.endi.com/feeds/ultimahora/ultimahora3.xml&TEMPLATE=http://www.splix.com/rss/sample-template.html&MAXITEMS=20');

Replace http://www.splix.com/rss/rss2html.php with the script you installed in your server.
Replace http://www.endi.com/feeds/ultimahora/ultimahora3.xml with the RSS feed you want.
Replace http://www.splix.com/rss/feedtemplate.html with the template you downloaded.
Replace 20 with the number of headlines you want to be displayed.

That is it!

Want to see it working???? Here you go!

Now, if I can only figure out how to make UTF-8 work !!!!!!! See all those weird characters?
It is Spanish... (no problem for English, I guess).
