HomePHP Page 3 - Rockiní RSS with PHP on your HTML
How--and why--to get started - PHP
An RSS feed lets webmasters tease visitors into returning to their websites again and again to check out new content. Danny Wall explains how to set up this simple, automated, spamless way of getting Web surfers to come back for more.
Additionally, there are a wide range of tools to make adding RSS to your site easy with hardly writing any code of you own. I personally use the MagpieRSS toolset created in PHP which can be found at http://magpierss.sourceforge.net. So instead of covering how to get RSS added to your site, what Iíd like to do is talk about how you can build your own RSS feed.
Some webmasters that I know groan over the thought of RSS. Itís yet another new technology to learn, another new thing to add to their site and manage. The thing is, RSS is really nothing more than an XML application, and if done right, it doesnít need any management. Everything can be (indeed, should be) automated.
In fact, RSS it is the first widespread use of XML. It is the first time XML is being used to do something useful for the average Web surfer AND for the average webmaster.
