Support » Plugins and Hacks » 2 blogs: want to include post titles from one into another

  • Hi, I’m using wordpress 1.5.2. I have a Blogger blog, and I want to include the titles & links of, say, 5 of my latest posts from Blogger in the sidebar of my 1.5.2 WP blog. Probably this blog platform is too old for a plugin, but maybe not. Back in the dark ages, I used some kind of CARP solution, but it was not pretty. I was hoping there was a smoother way to approach this. Any suggestions?

  • Hi again, I was wondering if someone could help me find a solution to this.

    I actually used some very simple code provided by one site:

    <?php require_once (ABSPATH . WPINC . '/rss-functions.php'); ?>
    <?php $today = current_time('mysql', 1); ?>
    <?php
    $rss = @fetch_rss('http://feeds.feedburner.com/somefeed');
    if ( isset($rss->items) && 0 != count($rss->items) ) {
    ?>
    <ul>
    <?php
    $rss->items = array_slice($rss->items, 0, 7);
    foreach ($rss->items as $item ) {
    ?>
    <li>
      <a href='<?php echo wp_filter_kses($item['link']); ?>' target='_blank'>
      <?php echo wp_specialchars($item['title']); ?>
      <small>.
        <?php echo human_time_diff( strtotime($item['pubdate'], time() ) ); ?>
        <?php _e('ago'); ?>
      </small>
    </li>
    <?php
    }
    }
    ?>

    Worked like a charm until feedburner (apparently) blocked my server for making too many requests.

    Clearly I need to find some kind of caching solution. My siet already caches pages but apparently it was not enough for feedburner.
