I think I am on the verge of solving a problem that's been eating my brain for the past week...

Is there a way I can modify rssMesh.php so that instead of using the "feedExtra" field from the config file for ~~~ItemRssMeshExtra~~~, it could pass the <title> or <image><url> from the source xml?

I hope I'm not annoying you Jim with all my posts here... if it's any consolation I just purchased a copy of FeedForAll Mac after using rss2html.php for a while now.

I just looked at the output of rssMesh.php and realized that the source URL and title are stored in the <source> within the item. I then remembered you mentioning that you were planning on building this into rss2html.php soon so I'll be patient for that.

So now all I need for my problems to be solved is a way to do what I mentioned in the above post with the <image><url> from the source xml.

Thanks so much Jim for your support!

Just to be completely clear on what you want to do.

* You have multiple feeds you want displayed on a page
* You want to group them by <pubDate>, hence you need rssMesh
* rssMesh puts the feed title and feed URL into <source> as it should
* But, rssMesh only keeps the <item> level stuff

You want to be able to get access to the feed image, right?

We plan to make more of the channel level information available, but I will take a little time. I will keep you posted.

For the time being I am simply maualy inputing the feed's image URL into the ~~~ItemRssMeshExtra~~~ until you're ready with the extra features.

I'm noticing however that randomly some of the images aren't showing up and when I look at the source generated by rss2html.php some of the ~~~ItemRssMeshExtra~~~'s are completely blank.

is there anything I can do about this?

I would have to see everything to even be able to guess.
