Basically you set up the FutureRSS script to use your existing RSS feed. You then give out the URL of the FutureRSS script as the address of your RSS feed. When a user accesses the FutureRSS script, it will give them a copy of your feed, except any items in the feed that have a Pub Date in the future, won't be passed to them.

Perhaps an example will help.

Lets's say that your website is at: http://www.mydomain.com
Your feed is: http://www.mydomain.com/myfeed.xml

The first step would be to download the FutureRSS script, unzip it, and put it on your webserver.

Next, either rename or copy the future-rss.php file to 'myfeed.php'. This step isn't really necessary, but it makes things easier to follow.

Then, edit the myfeed.php script and change this line:

$cfg["rss_feed"]='myfeed.xml';

to the name of your RSS feed. In this particular example, the script is already correct, but most likely in your case you need to change it.

That is pretty much it. To test, enter the FutureRSS script's URL into your browser or feed reader:

http://www.mydomain.com/myfeed.php

You would then give out the new URL above as your feed's address, from now on.

HTH

I've just installed the future rss php script with my rss feed and have been testing it in personal pages of Yahoo and Google.

When I try to add the rss feed using the .php as the url pathway (not .xml as usual), the php file is not found.

When I give the .xml url, the php script doesn't appear to work. Future dated shows are listed in the feed.

Any suggestions?

Can you post the URLs to your feed .xml and .php (future-RSS) versions?

I can successfully add the .xml version of the feed to various rss readers, but not the .php. That's to say, the .php file is not recognized by the readers.

When I submit the .xml version to the readers, the Future RSS feature doesn't appear to be operating. All future shows are listed.

What's the protocol for adding my rss feed to readers, keeping the Future RSS feature intact?

I have another question. Not quite sure what to do with the .html file that comes in the Future RSS download. I put our episode content in the .html code, but I don't think I did it right. Here's what it looks like:

http://evolutionminute.com/rss/evo_min_rss.html

Thanks for your thoughts.

The readers shouldn't really care what the extension is (.xml vs .php). Odds are that the FutureRSS script either isn't setup correctly, or your webserver is having trouble running it for some reason.

If you post links to your .xml feed and your .php version (using FutureRSS), I can try to help figure out where things aren't working correctly.

The .html link you provided looks like a template that should be used with our rss2html.php script.

Working with the future-rss script. I downloaded that folder and followed instructions I found on this forum.

I opened the php file and changed these lines of code:

# $cfg["rss_feed"]='http://www.mydomain.com/myfeed.xml';

$cfg["rss_feed"]='myfeed.xml';


to this:

# $cfg["rss_feed"]='http://www.evolutionminute.com/rss/evo_min.xml';

$cfg["rss_feed"]='evo_min.xml';


Then I renamed the php file to evo_min.php and uploaded it into the folder on my server where the .xml file lives.


My .xml file has 21 items with consecutively progressing daily dates, beginning with Nov. 28. So the pub dates of each item are Nov 28, 29, 30, Dec 1....

To test the future script I added my .xml feed to a feed reader. But,... it displayed all shows. It should have shown only the first one or two items.

Not sure how to trouble shoot this. I pasted the url of the future script .php file into my browser, and got this error message:

Error en http:// Wed, 29 Nov 2006 11:01:47 -0600 Feed not found

The .php file is on the server at that url location.

Can you provide some guidance? Here are the urls of my feed:

http://www.evolutionminute.com/rss/evo_min.php

http://www.evolutionminute.com/rss/evo_min.xml


Thanks, I appreciate your time and wisdom.

Try editing the future-rss.php script again and use the full feed url for your feed by uncommenting it out. For example change

# $cfg["rss_feed"]='http://www.evolutionminute.com/rss/evo_min.xml';

$cfg["rss_feed"]='evo_min.xml';

to this

$cfg["rss_feed"]='http://www.evolutionminute.com/rss/evo_min.xml';

# $cfg["rss_feed"]='evo_min.xml';

Also, in order to view your feed without the future dates, you have to use the url to the future-rss version of your feed. In you case you would use http://www.evolutionminute.com/rss/evo_min.php in your feed reader.

I followed your suggestion. In the .php file, I changed this:

# $cfg["rss_feed"]='http://www.evolutionminute.com/rss/evo_min.xml';

$cfg["rss_feed"]='evo_min.xml';

to this:

$cfg["rss_feed"]='http://www.evolutionminute.com/rss/evo_min.xml';

# $cfg["rss_feed"]='evo_min.xml';


I see there is a subtle difference in the two. After uploading the new .php file, I tested the rss feed using the .php url, not the .xml url. Again, all the shows (future dated) are showing up.

What else can I try?

Just tested the .php file again, and it's working...!

No need for your reply to my previous post.

Thanks for your help.
