Hi,

I have used the RSS2HTML converter on my web page on a number of feeds but on one of them, it brings back items which are about 3 months out of date!

The feed is: http://www.boroughofpoole.com/newsfeed

Grateful if anyone could advise how to get it to bring back the lastest items rather than the older ones.

Regards,

Dave.

RSS2HTML will convert anything that's in the feed, so if the feed has older content in it, the script is going to translate the content. I took a look at the feed and it looks like the contents of the feed stretch back to April... so, as a result, when the script converts the feed, it's going to display items that go all the way back to April.

Is there a way to get to show say the newest 6?

There may be a way to code something like that with PHP, I know that there are certain PHP functions that may allow you to do it but the base RSS2HTML script itself can't. It was only designed to translate the contents of whatever feed it's been given.

Having said that, you could use the RSSFilter script to Filter the information from the feed to only the 6 most recent entries, then take that output and feed it through the RSS2HTML converter.
