RSS feed

I've read everything on this site about RSS feeds and I've made one for www.heemschut.nl/flevoland. It validates ;-)) I thought it would be nice to use different feeds for different (sub)sites to enhance the main siet without much work. But now I'm stuck.

How do I get the feed into another website. Do I need special software for it, can I make a link in another CD file? Or what?  Apparently I missed something.

If it's not appropriate for this forum, send me private mail.

Thanks for any help or pointers.

RSS Feeds are usually used to provide information to end-users who read them with special "aggregators". Think of it as a way to make a non-Web information stream available. I've got a bunch of links at http://www.larkware.com/RSS/RSS_Resources.aspx - browse around and you'll get the idea.

So you can't use a RSS feed as a source  for another part of a website, maintained by someone else. That is a pity, but I understandmore of it now. Tanks for the pointers.

Actually you can, Menno-it's a little bit complicated, but there are tools and scripts to make it easier. Go to http://gils.utah.gov/rss/ and scroll down to where it says "Parse and Display Your RSS Channel on Your Site". You will find a wealth of information and links there.

BTW-I found that on Mike Gunderloy's list of RSS Resources, which is invaluable. Thanks Mike!

Thanks for the pointers. I will check them out and see if I can get something to work. If I succeed I will let you know. That could be after my holiday, as I will be leaving in a week and have a lot to do before I leave.

I've done a lot of reading and experimenting and I think I've collected quite a few nice enhancements that you can use in CityDesk. After my holidays I will summarize all I've found and find a way to publish it here. It's a cool feature!
