allows webmasters to display RSS feeds on their
The new rss2html Cache module will expedite the
retrieval and conversion of RSS feeds into html
Once the feed is cached it will be read from the
local hard drive for a specified amount of time.
After the specified time has lapsed, the RSS feed
will be fetched again. This allows the contents
of the RSS feed being displayed to remain current,
while expediting the whole process.
Additionally, the script reduces bandwidth usage.
The bandwidth is reduced because the web server
does not have to repeatedly fetch the same RSS
feed from a remote server.
Another benefit to rss2html's new cache module
is that on occasion a website will forbid access
to their RSS feeds from websites or IP addresses
that request the feeds too frequently. The rss2html
cache module will assist in these situations,
because RSS feed requests will be minimized.
The rss2html.php script is freely available from
NotePage, Inc., makers of the popular RSS feed
creation software, FeedForAll. The new rss2html
cache module will be made available free of charge
to all registered users of FeedForAll or FeedForAll
