How can I add an RSS feed to either a block or a page? I have tried with Javascript and PHP code snippets and receive errors.

Hi Daniel,

Sorry you are having problems with your RSS feed.

Here's a snippet of code you can use to bring in RSS feeds to your FlexCMS site. Just modify the output to suit your needs.

1. Create a new page and/or block

2. Insert the following code into the contents area:


Code

$newsfeed = 'http://rss.news.yahoo.com/rss/security';

$fp = @fopen($newsfeed, 'r');
while(!feof($fp)){
$row .= @fgets($fp, 4096);
}
@fclose($fp);

if( eregi('<item>(.*)</item>', $row, $rowitem ) ) {
$item = explode('<item>', $rowitem[0]);

for( $i = 0; $i < count($item) - 1; $i++ ) {

eregi('<title>(.*)</title>', $item[$i+1], $title );
eregi('<link>(.*)</link>', $item[$i+1], $url );
eregi('<description>(.*)</description>', $item[$i+1], $categorie);

echo '<a href="' . $url[1] . '" target="_blank">' . $title[1] . '</a><br>' . $categorie[1] . '<br><br>';

}
}


NOTE: Replace the $newsfeed URL with the URL of the newsfeed you wish to display in your block or page.

3. Check the Process PHP Code? box and save your block/page.

You can see this exact code up and running here.

If you have any other questions or problems, let us know.

Thanks!
