    I've installed the SmartRSS plugin (http://www.devplug.net/smartrss-plugin/) and I'm running into some problems. I am able to update the plugin from within WordPress, however, when updating the RSS feeds, I get the following errors on each feed.

    Reading http://scripts.ign.com/rss/ign.Xbox360.2.0.xml - 3

    Warning: file(http://scripts.ign.com/rss/ign.Xbox360.2.0.xml) [function.file]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/u1/nex2nun/gamewhat.com/html/wp_smartrss.php on line 29

    Warning: implode() [function.implode]: Bad arguments. in /home/u1/nex2nun/gamewhat.com/html/wp_smartrss.php on line 29

    Permissions problem? PHP not configured correctly? I'm not sure, but thought maybe someone would see something I'm not seeing. Any ideas?

    Thanks folks!

    error message is telling you that "url fopen" isn't allowed on the box you're on. It is trying to open the url as if it's a local file, which it's not. ;)

    Most hosts won't allow it these days. you either need curl, or fsockopen, or some other third party wrapper library...

    There is an excellent solution to this problem, assuming that your host has cURL enabled.

    Here is a link to re-written code that replaces the fuction requiring URL file open usage with cURL code.

    Very nicely done, and will get you "up and running" in no time at all! :-)

    I inputed the code and received an error at line 30, which corresponds to the same function (as it is the second line of the fix when using the "if then elseif" programming language). Probably a host issue.
