RSS Feed Importing

Does CodeIgnitor/Nova handle any RSS importing from external sites? If so what would I be looking at to create a page with an imported RSS feed?

Re: RSS Feed Importing

There was a mod written by someone in my org and this file/post is probably still here on the boards for SMS2 that used Magpie RSS to import an RSS feed from another site into SMS2 (RetrieveYahooArchive.rar).

Does Nova/CodeIgnitor have this ability?

Re: RSS Feed Importing

Nova used to have an RSS parser, but given the fact it was 350kb, it was removed. You'd have to search for a CodeIgniter RSS parser, include that and then extend controllers and view files to do whatever you're trying to do.

Re: RSS Feed Importing

To make sure I'm reading this page properly and have it adapted for Nova. I'll take what is here

http://codeigniter.com/wiki/RSSParser/

name it MY_RSSParser.php and place it in application/libraries

Re: RSS Feed Importing

You can't use the MY_ prefix because the library doesn't exist in the core. Simply put it into application/libraries as is and use it as directed.

Re: RSS Feed Importing

Ok. Glad I asked as I would have been scratching my head as to why it wasn't working.
