Reading RSS feeds in PHP: Part 2
Dec 19, 2006 @ 15:48:00

PHPBuilder.com has posted part two in their series looking at working with RSS feeds in PHP. This time, they pick up from the previous part and look at parsing two new feeds and pushing that content into a database.

These two sample feeds are loosely based on some of the feeds supplied by Independent Online. Note that unlike last month's simplified example, each article item has a publication date. We'll call the two feeds africa.rss and southafrica.rss.

They give the contents of the feeds to be parsed and what the info (as parsed by the code from the previous article) spit out the other side would look like. They also give the schema for the database table you can push all of the content into to store it. The rest of the article is the code listing to get this system working (including the code to parse the feed itself).
