    I am a blog newbie still trying to feel my way around WP. It is a great application but there is no adequate documentation to help novices like me.
    I am interested in subscribing to Yahoo! RSS found at http://news.yahoo.com/rss. Can someone please tell how to include this feed into my blog found at http://oyedele.us? I don't know how the to use the orange xml buttons to get the feed into my site.
    I appreciate all the help and insight I can get on this one.
    Thanks!

    jaykul has a simple rss parser here:
    http://jaykul.huddledmasses.org/scripting/news_feed_parser.php
    u just need to upload a file, a folder (chmoded 777) and include a 2 line code. u can see a working example here:

    Thank you for the hint! It works very fine (also with the German well known "Telepolis-RDF").

    Jay,
    In which WP php files do I enter "include "xmlfeed.inc"; parseURL("http://jaykul.fragmentized.com/index.xml", 5, false, "Jaykul", "JFC", -1, -1); " script?
    Sorry, I am just a newbie.
    Thanks!

    Jay,
    Do I have to create a new page like News_Feed.PHP for my daily news feeds and then insert the script:
    "include "xmlfeed.inc"; parseURL("http://jaykul.fragmentized.com/index.xml", 5, false, "Jaykul", "JFC", -1, -1); " ?
    Thanks!

    Yeah, http://www.chait.net runs the sidebar on the homepage on a completely rewritten offshoot of jaykul's original code, uses no DB anywhere. My rewrite also handles the three main variations, does categorized filtering of large feeds, uses a new/cleaner XML parsing mechanism (allowing you to modify further to pull in more fields for display), etc. I'm thinking of making it available to people once I get my cgamazon stuff finished off.
