Show X# WP posts excerpts, other site (5 posts)

    I searched for this but found nothing similar.

    I need to show a list of the last 7 posts (titles and brief excerpts) within one specific category on another, non-WP home page.

    Customized RSS feed? Build a special .php page in WP and include it in the other? Not sure the best way to do this.

    Any ideas? Thanks.

    Hmmm...that appears (to my eyes) to be only good within WP. (The code for pulling the offsite feed requiring the plugin, etc.). Perhaps that would work, though, to create the page to include on the other site.

    I did also discover this:
    http://domain.com/index.php/category/Nameofcat/feed/

    ...to pull a feed with only one category, but it doesn't work at all. :-(

    This works:
    http://www.domain.com/wpress/wp-rss2.php?cat=2

    ...to pull a feed showing only one category.

    You can use something like CG-FeedRead to grab a specific RSS subfeed from the secondary site, and list a certain max number of titles in the sidebar of your main site. I know a number of folks who do that.

    You can find more around here, or ping me at cgcode at chait dot net if you want to discuss further offline.
