I should point out that the first item in the feed is scheduled for release on June 7. Whether this has anything to do with the error message, I don't know.

No need for apology. The fault was mine in my last post. I neglected to mention that I have subsequently found out that my web host, while disabling fopen for *external* links (which mine isn't) still allows fopen for *internal* links (i.e. physically located on my web host). There was some confusion over this until someone on the Support Forum on my web host clarified this.

So... to sum up (and hopefully this will be of benefit to others) fopen *can* be used if the file is locally located (i.e. located on your web host)

However, I now have one other problem *sigh*... and my apologies for all your time that I'm taking up. I put the future-rss script into the same directory on my web host as the feed file, which is named saints.xml. I then edited the future-rss script to read $cfg["rss_feed"]='saints.xml'; and renamed the future-rss script to saints.php

The problem I'm now having is this: an error message comes up reading

"Error en http:// Tue, 06 Jun 2006 14:06:18 -0700 Feed not found " when going to it via browser.

With blessings,

If the RSS feed is a local file, such as "/home/username/example.com/feed.xml", and the future-rss script is in the same directory as "feed.xml" would the full path (as above) need to be entered or would simply "feed.xml" be sufficient?

Yes. One of the first few lines in the script is this:

$cfg
So would I replace $cfg['fetch_method'] = "fopen"; with $cfg['fetch_method'] = "curl"; ? And would there be anything else I would need to change/do?

I hope you'll forgive the seemingly dumb questions but I'm brand new at this.

With blessings,

I notice that futureRSS uses "fopen" in its code. As our web host does not allow the use of "fopen", is there some way around this?

You can create a feed with each item in the feed having a "pub date" for each date. Then use our FutureRSS software, http://www.feedforall.com/future-rss.htm , to release one item each day.

Jim
Many thanks for that info... and also very many thanks for the quick reply!

You are welcome. And the quick reply was luck, you posted just before I checked. If you have more questions let us know.

Jim
Actually I do have one more question... how many items can one have in a feed?

Greetings,
First off, I'm brand new to the wonderful world of publishing RSS feeds (if that's the correct term for it).

Here's my problem: I have 365 pages (one for each day of the year) which automatically display one at a time at midnight each day. At midnight the page currently displaying is automatically replaced by the next day's page.

I'd like to set up an RSS feed for these pages. From what very little I've been able to understand so far, this would involve me updating an xml file daily (or nightly). Is there a way to automate this process?

NB: as each page gets automatically replaced, the new page is automatically named index.html.

With many thanks for any help (especially in words of one syllable for this non-technical newbie)

Dal
