  • I have to WP blogs running on my site, the main blog and then a photoblog. What I would like to do is place a line on the frontpage of my main blog telling when I last updated my photoblog. Is it possible with SSI or maybe with some kind of RSS aggregator?

  • I know how to display RSS on a page, not sure if it’s exactly what you need, but you could work with it. First you need to get the address of the RSS feed for your photoblog. Then you plug it into the applications Feed-2-Javascript at –
    http://jade.mcli.dist.maricopa.edu/feed/
    That’ll give you some Javascript that you can put anywhere in the page. It spits out the RSS as a li, so you can style that however you want.

    Indeed the service at Maricopa is very useful for putting an RSS feed on your page if you do not want to get involved with your own installation of Magpie. I’ve just used it to put a feed of my del.icio.us links 0n my WP blog http://wp.jeremycherfas.net/ and it worked beautifully.
    Styling the feed can be a little tricky, but the site helps you to do that too.
