Jaykul has a NewsFeed Parser Script that I beleive is WayKul. OK, that was a bad cliche. This script is very easy to configure and has some nice features (including open source). It saved me the headache of writing my own! Some of the features include:
RDF spec”>RDF “feeds” are, they are basically ways for a site to make it easy for other people (like you and me) to “syndicate” their content, getting headlines and possibly short excerpts of their articles. There are thousands of sites which produce these news pages, including my own, Lockergnome, GeoShell.com, ShellScape, SlashDot and more general sites like Internet News, and more! The output is simple divs with links and class names. All you have to do to use it is “include it” in your php script and then call the function.
PS: Latest post and comment hack for WordPress breaks the variables, so the script malfunctions, workaround underway
