View Full Version : Help me with XML feeds
07-30-2006, 11:43 PM
Is there anyone in here who knows about xml feeds? Anyone who knows a good deal of sources to read or something that can give out a sample written code?
Do you want to make a feed for other users, or do you want to incorporate one into your site?

I'll be working with someone who will install some SEs into an interface that would generate us some data. After installation, I will be assigned to write xml feeds to combine the data and present them to previous interface.
Unfortunately, this will be my firs time to work on xml feeds. A few exmaples as to how it looks like and how it functions would be very helpful.
Well I don't know enough about your background, for instance how well you know html, and you can't ask the right questions because you don't know enough about xml to start with.
Have a look at this resource and get back to us.

I do know HTML and CSS, as well as RSS..just that this xml feeds is something I haven't touched since time immemorial.
I'm sorry, I want to help but I still don't know what you are looking for. You say you want a "sample written code" but you haven't said whether you want php or asp code for example....
My last suggestion will be to look at the xml FAQ:

Something like this http://www.feedforall.com/feedforall.htm or something that would require me to work on some hands-on will do.

You don't need that software. Any blog or CMS will output an RSS feed.

I see. I know xml is not a scripting language right? I bet it's just one way of describing information or data. If that's the case, I CAN'T use it to replace html. Am I right?
