    If people have particular feature requests, let me know. I've posted the overhauled CHAITGEAR feed reading stuff (a complete overhaul of Jaykul's script) up on my site. Accessible from the following post:

    BTW, I did more tweaks to the code tonight, put up a newer version and put it in a zipfile.
    Since I didn't note the changes, my new code includes:
    - new XML parsing procedure, which allows for extending the output as you might like to include other fields from feeds.
    - also easy to add new XML formats to the system
    - category filtering (for large feeds)
    - built in caching of the results (can't remember if that was in original or not...) for a given time-period... as live-grabbing xml feeds constantly can suck for pageload times...
    Would love to have some people grab it and try it out, let me know what features they are looking for. Things like some kind of templating of the output so the main code can remain clean but you can customize for your site, etc. Let me know (note suggestions as comments off the post on my site! ;) ).

    When I uncomment the feeds in zfeeder.php I get:
    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: feed() in /home/bkdesign.ca/html/wp/feeds/zfeeder.php on line 33
    When I comment it back as it comes I get:
    Refer to Error opening subscriptions file ! No feeds.
    In install text it says:
    "NOTE: this is to be used ONLY when the option "use subscription file"
    is "no" (in the admin panel :: config)
    // whenever you disable that option you can configure the feeds here."
    I looked everywhere for anything resembling this in admin...nothing, and when I "configure this here" I get the above errors.

    Do you have a subscriptions file which you can add RSS urls to? I think you might need to enter in feeds at the subscriptions menu.
