    How to incorporate dynamic news feeds into a site??

    Hi All,

    I am starting a new site for digital compositing and VFX...i need to incorporate dynamic news from many sources....

    I have two ways of displaying it

    1- Use a dedicated news page

    or

    2- Use a dedicated News forum in my vBulletin v2.2.9 forum

    But i really have no idea how to acomplish this???

    Any help or suggestions would be very much appreciated

    Cheers

    The first way is a good start. Do you use server side languages like PHP, Perl etc.?

    hi swon,

    yes i am using php....but im NOT VERY GOOD at all ...

    Here is a post from another forum....so i can give you a better idea of where im coming from:

    Hi All,

    I have found this very cool RSS scraper software called MyHeadlines (www.jmagar.com) ...it works buy either subscribing to pre determied news feeds OR you can create your own 'scrapers' that scrape news sources from any site on the net... take a look here at an example: example

    What would be AWESOME is if some GURU could somehow work out a way to incorporate news feeds scraped using MyHeadlines into a predetermined forum (News Forum for example)...ie: have these news feeds that we can scrape from any news source and have them posted into a news forum...then we could just prune the forum every 14 days or so...and it would be sweet!!

    It would be a very challenging and very COOL hack!!!!

    I would really like to discuss this with anyone who is interested!!

    Cheers

    Paul
    Hope you can help some

    Thanks mate
