Add an RSS feed from multiple sources

Ensure you get the R
SS you’re after with Feed Informer

RSS FEEDS ARE a great way to insert the latest up-to-date news into your web pages without the hassle of actually having to source the stories.

Simply find an RSS feed that fits the bill and add the code to insert into the page. There are plenty of online RSS creators, but few that allow multiple feeds to be integrated into a single feed. One online option that allows users to choose multiple feeds is Feed Informer. Sign up at http://feed.informer.com and get six free ‘digests’. The software is simple enough to use and allows users to create a customised feed in minutes.

The beauty of the program, apart from being free, is that it allows users to edit the templates to match their site. After selecting the feeds to be included and the various options, ie how many stories, click Edit Templates; this allows users to modify the HTML. A quick tip here is to copy the code, paste into Dreamweaver, modify, copy back into the digest and press Save Changes. Once created, Feed Informer then creates the code needed to include in a web page. There are plenty of options here,  including JavaScript, Flash, PHP, ASP and more. Plus, a ‘digest’ is fully customisable at any point in its life cycle.
