    Hello everyone,
    I am really new to web design and am building a news website with dreamweaver. I really have no idea how this works but I need help with pulling the news to my website. I want this to be done automatically, without me having to look for the news and updating my website everyday. Can this be done with RSS or NMS? Which one would work best? If I use the RSS aggregator, will it have the little icon on every article I pull to my website? Thank you!!!

    RSS would be your best approach. I've used it here (Globe and Mail feed) and it's actually pretty easy to work with.

    Be careful with what you aggregate, though. Unique content is very much a search engine factor and they target sites that are "content farms" (i.e. ones that just pull content from everywhere else rather than doing their own work.) So if that's all you're going to be doing with the site...well, don't waste your time. I can't put it any better than that.
    If I've helped you out in any way, please pay it forward. My wife and I are walking for Autism Speaks. Please donate, and thanks.

    If someone helped you out, be sure to "Like" their post and/or help them in kind. The "Like" link is on the bottom right of each post, beside the "Share" link.
