Support » Plugins and Hacks » Placing a blog summary on an external page

  • Hi there. I’ve just got wordpress up and running – very lovely it is too.

    I’d like to display the most recent few blog posts on my site home page, which is not managed by wordpress. I could hack together an RDF parser that fetches an appropriate feed URL, parses it and displays it, but it seems a bit ugly:

    (a) because the feeds appear to be dynamically generated, a MySQL/wordpress failure would take down the homepage.
    (b) if the site gets a lot of traffic, it would hammer the server.

    I’m therefore looking for a way to have wordpress write out a file containing a feed or summary HTML that can be included in the home page when any blog post is created or edited.

    I’m a software developer, so if there’s nothing around I’m sure I can write one with a few pointers.

    Many thanks again for the great product,

    Bernie :o)
