RSSMESH v3.x Instructions



RSSMESH allows combining 2 or more feeds into one RSS 2.0 feed. Each of the soure feed will have a specified number of items used.


1) Unzip the contents of the rssMesh.zip file, and copy the extracted files to a folder on your webserver. The folder should be accessible from the Internet, like your regular webpages. In fact, the destination folder could be the same folder that you keep your webpages in.

2) In your browser, enter the full URL to the location of the rssMesh file, and use 'buildConfig' for a parameter.
Example: http://www.feedforall.com/rssMesh.php?buildConfig
This will bring up the configuration screen for rssMesh

3) On the configuration screen, choose the options you want, and enter the feeds you want to use for sources.

4) Hit the 'Generate configuration data' button at the bottom of the screen.

5) The screen will refresh and display the contents of a new configuration file in your browser. You now need to highlight that data, and copy it to an editor on your local computer (like notepad).

6) Save the new configuration file locally, being sure to use .php for the extension.

7) Upload the configuration file, and put it into the same folder as your rssMesh.php file

8) Test rssMesh by entering its URL into your browser, and including your new config file as a parameter. The configfile must be a local file, if it is specified with a URL it will not work.

Example: http://www.feedforall.com/rssMesh.php?CONFIGFILE=myfeed.php


After creating your new configuration, copy the configuration file from the rssMesh.php?buildConfig page to a file ending in .php on your server. You can specify this file as your feed. If you name the file "myfeed.php" you could access the created feed in two ways, http://www.your-web-server.com/rssMesh.php?CONFIGFILE=myfeed.php , which will work but is messy. You can also produce the exact same results with http://www.your-web-server.com/myfeed.php . Using this shortened version makes much cleaner URLs for your users or as the input to other FeedForAll scripts.
