Hi all,

I have been searching the net for ASP code to add RSS feeds into our home page - Disclaimer - I am not a web programmer or even a webmaster's hind leg !

I found some code and the instructions seem simple enough - just not simple enough for me - see disclaimer above

http://www.tele-pro.co.uk/scripts/rss/r ... ss_faq.htm

Can anyone get the above code to work in an ASP page ? I just get a blank page ...

Any alternatives would be warmly received. I would prefer to have another ASP page where I can add, remove & preview RSS feeds, while displaying the RSS feeds on the home page ....

Thanks in advance

I voted, but sorry, can't help you with the ASP. I've been using RSS feeds for a few years, but I use PHP.

i don't know much asp either but I know a fair bit of VB. If your using VBScript, Give me the code you're using and I'll see if I can help.

Use .NET. There are great XML syndication modules out there for the ASP.NET framework. Regular ASP is more difficult, but there are a few options.

Here's an article from 4guys:

Really, you should look into SOAP... That will pretty much let you create whatever sort of feed you need.

Thanks for the suggestions and offers everyone.

A bit of Googling leads me to believe that .NET seems to be the best approach for a ASP /RSS combo. Unfortunately we can't use .NET for the RSS news aggregator as we will be moving our site to a web hosting company that doesn't support .NET.

I'll post back if i find a useable RSS aggregator that I can integrateinto a classic ASP page.

Cheers

Found a PHP based aggregator that generates java script. Did a quick test and integration of RSS works using their subscription based Jawfish service.

Thanks for the offer and if it still open I would appreciate a hand to get this to work. I can't figure it out. :oops:

<SNIP> The RSSContentFeed class can be used with VBScript code in ASP Active Server Pages.
