Thanks i was googling for myspace RSS and i found this much appreciation!

Thank you! Myspace's lack of RSS is quite irritating, and this should be quite useful.

Actually.. There is a bug on the comment parser.
Some of the comments are getting thrown out and some have the wrong name. :(

Tue, 29 Mar 2005 17:21:51 +0000

Is it just that I'm doing something wrong or does this script only recognize one blog entry per day?



Comment by scott reynen

Tue, 29 Mar 2005 19:29:05 +0000

Adam, that sounds like an error, but I can't find a myspace blog that has more than one entry per day to test on. If you can point me to one, I'll try to figure out what's wrong.

Is there anyway that I can use this to feed a blog on another website?



Comment by scott reynen

Thu, 12 May 2005 22:09:52 +0000

rory, yes, but I'd need more detail about what kind of site and if you have any programming ability to explain the best way to do that.

Comment by Scott Reynen

Wed, 29 Jun 2005 08:25:44 +0000

I only know it works on the few dozen MySpace blogs I've tested it on, but if you discover any problems, I'll be happy to fix them.



Comment by missy

Fri, 22 Jul 2005 11:24:40 +0000

how about the reverse? how can you get a blog hosted elsewhere with rss feed to show up on a myspace account?



Comment by Scott Reynen

Fri, 22 Jul 2005 12:43:35 +0000

missy, as far as I know, MySpace doesn't allow entering posts programatically, so you would have to do that yourself.



Comment by Monica

Fri, 29 Jul 2005 15:34:51 +0000

I have no idea how this works. I have no programming skills. Can you explain step-by-step how to get a rss feeder of my blog on myspace.com?



Comment by Scott Reynen

Sat, 30 Jul 2005 18:32:07 +0000

Monica, here are the steps:

1) Go to the MySpace blog
2) Copy the address
3) Go to the script linked above
4) Paste the address
5) Click the button
6) Subscribe in your news reader

Comment by John

Thu, 01 Sep 2005 00:47:50 +0000

Howdy! MySpace changed some of the elements on their blog system. There's an additional field (currently listening/gaming/reading/etc.), and it messes up the parser... Is there a patch that can be applied to fix that?



Comment by Brendan

Tue, 06 Sep 2005 23:24:18 +0000

Myspace has added rss feeds into their blogs now, so I'll be using the internal feed. But I wanted to thank you for making such a great script that lasted me for so long. Great work Scott!



Comment by Scott Reynen

Sat, 10 Sep 2005 15:59:32 +0000

John, I believe the feed should work now. If it doesn't, let me know the account name/number and I'll try to fix it.



Comment by Mia

Wed, 12 Oct 2005 13:49:25 +0000

Is there a way to feed a non-myspace blog to your myspace blog? As in, can I feed my livejournal entries directly to myspace?



Comment by Scott Reynen

Sat, 15 Oct 2005 14:08:22 +0000

Mia, see my response about to missy, who asked the same question.



Comment by John

Fri, 28 Oct 2005 23:48:29 +0000

Yep, it did. But it doesn't work again. PHP error:


Fatal error: Call to undefined function: mysql_date() in /home/smreynen/public_html/weblog/myspace/index.php on line 75

I'm guessing that your php version was updated?



Comment by Scott Reynen

Sat, 29 Oct 2005 09:42:18 +0000

I'm not sure what exactly changed, John, but it's fixed not.



Comment by Jordan

i dont know.. everytime i try to use it i get "Sorry, there was an error loading the MySpace comments" why is this



Comment by Scott Reynen

Tue, 08 Nov 2005 22:46:40 +0000

Jordan, give me the comments URL (address) you're trying to use, and I'll look at it.



Comment by David

Fri, 18 Nov 2005 03:24:02 +0000

Doesn't seem to work on my blog.
http://blog.myspace.com/spazspaz

The application seems to not work on my server either.
http://www.onesevensolutions.com/myspace.php5

I'm using source from:
http://www.randomchaos.com/source/?source=http%3A%2F%2Fweblog.randomchaos.com%2Fmyspace%2Fstandalone.php

Here's my phpinfo():
http://www.onesevensolutions.com/php5config.php5



Comment by David

Fri, 18 Nov 2005 17:50:33 +0000

hey Scott, there seems to be a problem with the parsing engine on my blog. my blog is not customized in any particular fashion, but it fails to parse the data period. so for testing, i went ahead and put more blog entries in and then it failed to display the first blog entry, but passed and displayed the remaining test messages. it should be noted that my blog currently contains only one entry. i will examine the PHP code and see if i may be able to determine the source of error. my blog site is at:
http://blog.myspace.com/spazspaz



Comment by Scott Reynen

Sun, 27 Nov 2005 08:55:21 +0000

David, looks like your blog has categories, which don't currently work with the parser. I'll try to update it when I get a chance. Meanwhile, you could always use the abbreviated feeds provided by MySpace.



Comment by q

Mon, 06 Feb 2006 10:40:03 +0000

can u do the same rss for a the www.downelink.com blog



Comment by Scott Reynen

Mon, 06 Feb 2006 14:43:43 +0000

q, no, downelink is a closed community, so I couldn't easily access it from a script. But the script is open source if you'd like to try.



Comment by Rob the SLob

Fri, 24 Mar 2006 03:49:36 +0000

Your code seems to parse based on table element order. Point being, it doesn't seem to work on pages with a top8 override.



Comment by Scott Reynen

Fri, 24 Mar 2006 11:34:14 +0000

Rob, I have no idea what top8 override means. Can you provide an example page? In general, my code is dependent on MySpace maintaining consistant HTML formatting throughout the site. When the formatting changes, my code breaks. I don't work for MySpace, so I have no control over this.



Comment by Leroy

Mon, 27 Mar 2006 12:47:53 +0000

Interesting. There are some sites out there like www.ribix.com that automatically aggregate alot of rss feeds to be viewed in a web browser. They have some really interesting stuff.



Comment by Steve

Fri, 31 Mar 2006 11:07:13 +0000

Scott, do you think you could provide an open source version of your script? I would like to edit it around a little. Give you full credit of course :)

Thanks,
Steve



Comment by Steve

Fri, 31 Mar 2006 11:07:58 +0000

for the comment rss that is :)



Comment by Scott Reynen

Fri, 31 Mar 2006 11:34:16 +0000

Steve, the link at the bottom of every page on my site, the one that says "open source," that links to the, well, open source.



Comment by Tony

Fri, 07 Apr 2006 22:45:13 +0000

Hey, does anyone happen to know how to post a comment on all of your friend's pages? I actually found a Perl script to do it, but I honestly don't feel like setting up my pc to do it. (yeah I'm lazy)



Comment by Aaron

Mon, 17 Apr 2006 05:36:06 +0000

i noticed if the friend id isnt iserted into the links , all the links that the feed trys to link ot the actual myspace blog wont work. it needs the persons friend id inserted into the link and the generator doesnt seem to insert it in there.



Comment by Aaron K

You can also import RSS feeds into MySpace using a tool I wrote that turns them into images - www.myspacefeed.com

Do you have time to discuss a new project, outside of myspace but still on the subject of RSS?

LOVE IT ! ...One question though , how can I make it display all my blogs , It is only showing 10 , may be my reader in Safari ...

Comment by Scott Reynen

Thu, 15 Jun 2006 08:40:30 +0000

Ada, MySpace only shows 10 posts per page, so that's all you get in the feed.



Comment by Ada

Thu, 15 Jun 2006 16:35:35 +0000

Thanks , yes I figured that in order to display more than one post in the myspacemusic blogs , one has to make the blog settings to display 10 posts per page . I assume it is the same on all the blog systems on myspace . So if you have the settings of the blog to display each post in a separate page , for some reason the RSS only displays the listing of the first post . In order to display at least the 10 allotted by myspace , one has to make the blog display the max (10) posts per page . I hope this makes sense .
Either way it is awesome and I am spreading the word . Thanks again .

Hum. This is kind of the OPPOSITE of what I want to do. I want to post to my LJ blog and feed the RSS to my Myspace blog... unless anyone knows an easier way to duplicate post to Myspace FROM LJ???

Kudos to all the good work!



Comment by Ryno

Tue, 11 Jul 2006 01:12:34 +0000

How hard would it be to alter this script so it created an rss feed for myspace bands and there upcoming gigs?



Comment by Scott Reynen

Tue, 11 Jul 2006 17:14:06 +0000

Ryno, I'll put that on my lengthy to-do list. If you'd like it moved to the top of the list, I accept freelance work.



Comment by Joe

Wed, 26 Jul 2006 18:06:01 +0000

MySpace has built-in RSS feeds *points to HTML for blog*



See? Works dandy.



Comment by Scott Reynen

Wed, 26 Jul 2006 18:37:14 +0000

Joe, MySpace added RSS feeds after I made my feed tool. I try to avoid reinventing wheels. I've kept my feeds up because MySpace's feeds are still only the first few lines of each post, so they don't do as much as my full-text feeds. But if they work for you, you should use them because my feeds are dependent on their HTML formatting, which is likely to change without notice at some point and break the feeds (though I'll certainly fix them as long as I can).



Comment by

Thu, 27 Jul 2006 10:08:49 +0000

Oh! Mmkay. I popped my feeds into Thunderbird and set it to automatically download the URL associated with an entry. Sorry to be a bother.

myspace has rss?



Comment by Scott Reynen

Yes, MySpace has RSS. If you open any "view all" blog listing, there's a link at the top.

Comment by Scott Reynen

Sun, 06 Aug 2006 02:45:09 +0000

Namorbrowneeyes, I can't help you with hidden content because I can't see it. That's what "hidden" means.



Comment by emil

Wed, 09 Aug 2006 02:36:03 +0000

Please forgive me if this has been covered, but I'd like to display a blog on my myspace page DIRECTLY (without having to follow their link);in fact, I'd like to eliminate those areas altogether and display only the actual blog. Is this possible? Is that the idea of RSS?



Comment by Scott Reynen

Wed, 09 Aug 2006 13:21:34 +0000

emil, if you need help with what's on your MySpace page, you should ask MySpace about it. I'm making tools that allow take content you created on MySpace and use it elsewhere.



Comment by Mario

Scott,. i want to add the "boingboing" (boingboing.com) rss feed to my myspace page,. is this possible? whether it be in the blog section or the main page,. could you explain to me how to do this? if its possible..

The comment RSS feeder doesnt work, it crashes.



Comment by Scott Reynen

Wed, 13 Sep 2006 21:33:28 +0000

Mario, I already answered that. I guess it's time to make a FAQ.

Jason, what blog are you trying? It crashes your browser or is there an error message? I need more detail to solve a problem.

*Answer* I've got a flash news feed on my myspace running off of an xml file located on my server. Go to http://www.myspace.com/butterflyfoundation to check it out. This is fed off of a file located at http://www.ebarts.com/darfur/news.xml (I will provide you the source code if you can volunteer some of your time to help me with another rss feed to flash project I am currently working on.

Comment by jeffellismusic.com

Thu, 23 Aug 2007 17:38:59 +0000

so you say this is open source eh? I dont see the link for the source, maybe I'm just blind. This is perfect for me, since the guy I do a site for hates to post his tour dates in two locations. I just want the source for http://makedatamakesense.com/myspace/event/ so I can tweak it a little bit.

Thanks in advance.

Sorry Kirk, I no longer host the source code for the weblog stuff (this post is almost three years old), and the event stuff was never open source. If you have general interest tweaks, I'd be happy to make them myself so everyone can use them. Otherwise, you're on your own.



Comment by kirk

Tue, 04 Sep 2007 13:50:56 +0000

bummer. i just want to make sure that it will always be up and the be able to customize the date output.. well mainly the output in general. this is the best script i have found to do this, so i would really like to get it to work, plus allow visitors to get an rss feed of it at the our domain instead of yours.... no offense you know how it is.

let me know what we can do / work out passably.

kirk



Comment by Scott Reynen

Wed, 05 Sep 2007 22:20:21 +0000

kirk, a lot of people have asked for that and my main hesitation has been figuring out how to quickly distribute updates every time MySpace updates their HTML and breaks the scripts. But I'm going to revisit that over the next couple weeks and hopefully come up with a solution you can use. I'll publish that here when it's available.
