RSS into a static page

    I would like to put an RSS feed from another site into a static page in WP. I have installed CGFeedRead, but when I copy/paste the code into the write/page window, I get code, not the feed. I dont know html, php, or xml, so please try and keep the answers simple. Thanks 🙂

    1. You cannot put code into the “Write” text area. In order to be able to do that you need to install one of the plugins that make possible running PHP in posts (PHPexe, RunPHP, CGquickphp…).
    2. If you don’t want to mess with plugins, put the code in the template file.

    To be honest I have no idea what “lastrss” is. IN your initial post you were close to what you want – just that the code has to be in the Page template file; probably you’ll have to create a new Page template.

    Since you already have the CG-Powerpack, just activate QuickPHP (oops, it may not be in the powerpack, if not, you’ll have to dl it from David’s site separately) and use it to add the cg-feedread code to your post or page.

    Just grab QuickPHP, then you can embed any simple PHP call into a Page or Post, including getSomeFeed calls…
