Overview:
--------

Grab an RSS feed from a remote site, store a cached version on
your server, then display it in readable HTML format for your
web visitors.

_______________________________________
Installation Overview:
-----------------------

1. Setting some options at the beginning of the script files (*.pl)
2. Using FTP to upload all the files
3. Setting permissions on the files
4. Setting up the .shtml file
4. Testing the script

_______________________________________
Here's How!
-----------

1. Using a text editor like textpad, or notepad, open the .pl script
Change the path to perl so that it's configured for your server.
It's usually:
#!/usr/local/bin/perl
or
#!/usr/bin/perl

Make changes to the variables at the top as well:
The URL to the RSS file:
$rssFile = 'http://crookedbush.com/cgi-bin/weblog.pl/scripts/index.rss';

Link back to the HTML version of the feed on the original site:
$blog_html_link = 'http://www.crookedbush.com/cgi-bin/weblog.pl/scripts/';

Name of the cache file created and stored on your server:
$rss_cache_file = 'rss_cache_crookedbush.txt';

How often to update new rss cache file:
$cache_refresh = 1;

2. Use an FTP program like WS_FTP or CuteFTP (just some examples I'm aware of) and
upload the files to your server.

3. Set permissions (CHMOD) on the *.pl file so it's executable. (755).
The owner should be able read, write, and execute.
The group should be able to read, and execute.
Also, other should be able to read, and execute.

4. Insert the following into a text file and rename it to test.shtml:
<!--#exec cgi="/cgi-bin/get_rss_feed.pl"-->

5. Place the above HTML clip in any spot that you want the RSS feed.
Be sure the page has a Server Side Include extension (.shtml), or
that you have enabled SSI on all html pages. You may need your site
administrator to enable this feature.

That's it! You're set! Let me know if you have problems.

Yours,
Jason Silver

What People Say

Blog - Poster $0
Add to Cart Blog-Poster is an excellent companion script to Blosxom. We needed to extensivly customize both Bloxsom & Blog-Poster as our needs were for a secure LAN accessible logbook software with multiple people able to make simultaneous entries. Blog_Poster and Jason were instrumental in making this happen with mostly Open Source software and scripts. We are extremely satisfied with the solution and the quality support.
