Hello to all,
I am trying to add some RSS feeds to my Web Site, it looks as though Mambo is going to be the route for me however after spending most of yesterday digging through the net I have only made things worse for myself with all that there was to read and digest.
So can some kind person here please help me with this, I have never before built a website however due to the type of the site we hope for I feel that having say 5-10 different feeds for our users will be worth the effort in the long run. I have already bookmarked feeds I hope to recive the biggest question I have left right now is how does a person view them, that is do I install a viewer or would it be on the users end to do this ?
Please be kind and any replys should be spelled out in details for simple o'l me, easy to say for now I am in way over my head.........Thanks in advance for any help

I don't have a script handy for Perl CGI to render an RSS feed in HTML for use in SSI on sites, but you can do a search online for RSS aggregators. There are many free open source readers available. :tazz:

To display an RSS feed on a website the RSS feed must be converted into a format which can be displayed. The easiest way to do this is with Javascript. To correctly display RSS feeds so that search engines see them as part of your web page content you must use parsing software which reads the RSS feed and displays it's content as html.

You could use an aggregator to display RSS feeds on say your desktop.

There are actually several ways to use an RSS feed. I'm giving you a link that might help you out a bit more. I don't know your skill level, so this might explain things better than I can.

Hope it helps. :tazz:
