been playing about with it, when I try to load the page with myconfig on it, I get this error:

Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_VARIABLE in /websites/LinuxPackage01/ma/df/or/madforsport.co.uk/public_html/rssMesh_myconfig.php on line 9 (the sortoutbypubdate line).

$XMLTemplate = "rssMesh_Template.xml;"


Change that line to
Code:
$XMLTemplate = "rssMesh_Template.xml";


I am fixing that and a few other minor improvements. I will email you updated code later today.

Thats is it working now (thank God says you!).

Just one last question then, I'm trying to dislay the Item author for the following:

http://www.teamtalk.com/rss/0,16039,2483,00.xml

but it dosen't have this contained in the link, are tere any alternaives to display this? ... the nearlest I could think of was displaying the ItemSourceURL bu that would be a bit long!

thanks for your continued support.

I don't see any of the "author" type fields used in this feed. Not sure what to suggest.

Jim, ignore 2 prev posts, I suppose the easiest way (?) would be a statement like:

If "fileURL" => "http://www.teamtalk.com/rss/0,16039,2483,00.xml" then ItemAuthor = "TeamTalk.com"

would that be the best way do you think? If so anytips on writing that?

thanks

I have been checking alot of the RSS feeds I am planning to use on my site and alot of then require you to display their website name beside the headline. Is there any way at all to display somthing like this? I'm afraind of breaching copyright or somthing if I dont?

thanks alot

rssMesh.php puts the feed's title and URL into <source>, which I will try and make avaliable in rss2html.php by next week. Do you need something else?

Jim

PS you are not a pain yet. These are all good questions and requests.

thats great Jim,

that would be sufficient I think, presuming it would work for most types of feeds? otherwise if it didn't, would it be better to store a file of all the feeds being used and assign a title to them that would be looked up by the rss2html script? your the expert, I'm a newbie to this type of thing, the only coding I have ever done is writing VB code!

thanks alot

I'm also eager to see what you come up with. This sounds like it would solve the problem I'm having too. does rssMesh.php store the feeds Image URL in the <source> along with the title and URL?
