    Right

    I must have searched high and low for this for the past hour.

    How do I get information from somebody else's RSS feed on my website, to display it neatly on the page?

    Like www.mezzoblue.com, www.456bereastreet.com etcetera. They both have little boxes on the right hand side of updates from other sites.

    This isn't exactly what I want (the information I seek isn't from blogs etc), but it's the same thing (i'm pretty sure it is anyway).

    So how do I do this in PHP? Whenever I search for this on google all I find is how to make an RSS feed, free services to do this in javascript, links to people's RSS feeds...

    Can anybody help?

    ...without writing a single line of code...
    I mean, how do I write my own script?

    Although, I've seen all of these scripts up for download and they look mighty hefty. I've always had a thing with my site of doing everything myself, (im kind of a control freak).

    Is it worth the hassle?

    I personally think it is. I though I remembered seeing a tutorial on there that walked you through writing your own.

    The point is, RSS is XML. You can use PHP's XML DOM functions to parse the file. From there on out, I'd look at the standard to see what the structure is supposed to look like. Have a look at the wikipedia articles on RSS for more information and useful sites.

    Another good one to learn from is lastrss.php, It's a fairly simple and concise class which is self contained and has caching.
