Support » Plugin: WP RSS Aggregator » Converting a search to RSS feed

    I know this is slightly off subject. I am using RSS Aggregator and it is working awesome.

    On my site, I want to pull in some upcoming events from USA Cycling. I can go to their site and create a search string that will bring up a web page with my searches.

    I then want to display them under MidAtlantic Races. Eric has already helped in creating a filter to display future events

    Does anyone have a suggestion on how to convert this search string to something that RSS Aggregator would think was an RSS so I can display it on my website?

    Thanks

    Chuck

    Hi again Chuck,

    We just tried entering the URL with your search string:

    http://www.usacycling.org/events/?race=&state=&zipcode=22315&radius=200&end_date_mon=1&end_date_day=1&end_date_year=2018&start_date_mon=1&start_date_day=1&start_date_year=2017&event=

    in the Feed Source URL and we’re able to import the feed items, see screenshot below:

    feed items

    Have you given it a try? Does it work for you?

    Yes that is exactly what I got. However, it is not what the search string is pulling. When you validate the link it takes you to USA Cyclings RSS Feed http://www.usacycling.org/rss/ which is what your link is displaying.

    What I want to display is not the rss feed but the results from my search
    Event Search

    I would attach a screenshot but have no idea how to do this 🙂

    Hi Chuck,

    Ah yes, sorry we’ve missed the content. We just thought it works without noticing that the content that is retrieved is different with the search result. Sorry for that.

    We have this Feed Creator for such a case like this.

    However, when we tried that, it also didn’t give the correct result. We’re also not sure if this’ll work since WP RSS Aggregator also requires each feed item has a unique permalink in order to identify and distinguish one feed item with another.

    With this search result, we can’t find that unique permalink per feed item. You can try with different parameters provided in the service if you’d like to.

    Unfortunately, there’s nothing else much we can do for you here.
