    take content from one website and place on another

    hello, is there any way of taking details of a website and place it on my own. For example, is there any way of taking the live league results of the bbc website (or any other website that offer this service) and post it on my own?
    Cheers

    It sounds to me like you might want to use some sort of feed to pull your results to another site. I'd look into an RSS feed or something more complicated depending on what you want to do.

    syndicated feeds

    Some syndicated feeds can be purchased (eg. up to date stock market figures), but many sites offer feeds for free. Make sure you read their TOS. Many are happy to let you use their content as long as you state something like "These results from football_scores_r_us.com" and link back to their page.
    You mentioned the BBC http://news.bbc.co.uk/hi/english/sta...on/default.stm

    Yeah I have looked into rss feeds, however, for hat im looking for I dont seem to be able to find any. Im look to have a live football tables on my webiste.
    Ive had a look into trying to get a feed sorted for there, but with no joy.
    Therefore, I was thinking that I could just use some kind of javascipt code to actually pull the information off another website.

    football feed

    Look a little closer at the pages I linked to. If you don't want the "easy" feed they offer, you can "create your own" http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/help/3223484.stm
    Can I make my own feeds?

    It is possible to create your own feeds, by using the BBC News search engine. The first step is to choose a search term, and type it into the search engine as normal. When your search results load, then choose the "BBC News & Sport" tab. Review the new results, and if they accurately reflect the topic you have chosen you can now use the orange feeds button to add the selection to your news reader, or to your website.
    For an example, doing a BBC search for "football" and choosing the "sports" tab gives a feed starting with these results.

    You could "fine tune" your search query if you need to. Then you just need to put the feed contents into the page using one of many feed parsers. Just to be safe make sure you identify the feed as having BBC content and keep the links back to their pages and you should be OK. You don't want to risk having your site shut down and getting into legal and financial trouble for content theft.
