    What's this feed ->?

    I see a lot of websites that use the same type of feed, like this one:

    http://www.hilaryd.org/news.php

    It seems real easy to implement. Can anyone tell me what this system is and where they are feeding from?

    It seems that the source of most of the news is from 2 sites, yahoo news and this one: http://www.newszoom.com/search/latest/50-cent/news/

    Does anyone know how you can easily get that news on a site (RSS feed?)

    Im kinda new in this area so forgive me if I sound noob

    Hi Peach - To be honest that Hilary Duff site doesn't look like a feed at all. It's too random. I think it's actually the Webmaster finding the news and adding it manually. There are ways to parse news on Yahoo and similar sites and add it to yours even if they don't have an RSS feed put it takes a bit of PHP coding.

    Hope that helps some.

    Ah, do you know any examples of scripts that parse content from websites and post it on the local site? Im not much of a programmer so I wouldn't know where to start.

    http://caferss.org/CafeRSS/

    I used CafeRSS to turn an RSS feed into a (simple) news section. Worked well.
