    i use to have this beautiful piece of code to fetch a rss and show it on my site

    <?php // Get RSS Feed(s)
    include_once(ABSPATH . WPINC . '/rss.php');
    $rss = fetch_rss('url to feed');
    $maxitems = 10;
    $items = array_slice($rss->items, 0, $maxitems);
    <ul class="list2">
    <?php if (empty($items)) echo '<li>No items</li>';
    foreach ( $items as $item ) : ?>
    <li><a href='<?php echo $item['link']; ?>'
    title='<?php echo $item['title']; ?>'>
    <?php echo $item['title']; ?>
    <?php endforeach; ?>

    now it is not working, and on the codex it is mentioned that the function fetch_rss has been deprecated and replaced by fetch_feed



    does anyone knows how do i use the new function?

    That code works for me... i was using it earlier today when testing...

    Use the following URL in the above..
    (Feed for this topic)..

    Most certainly does work..

    Where are you placing that code?...

    What file?

    i'm placing it at sidebar.php

    it was working, but i don't know if it stopped working when i upgraded to wp 2.8.1, or when i changed to another server...

    I had trouble earlier myself, then i realised it was because my internet had dropped out...

    Other then that i don't have a problem...

    2.8.1, 2.8, and 2.7, never had a problem...

    For what it's worth i've used the fetch_rss function (fetch_feed is new i think - i'm sure it works to though)..
