Alan, that's great! Any chance you'd share that .php?

D'Arcy,

See notes I added above. It likely would have been easier to use the same Adam Curry RSS parser Brian et al did, but I wanted to see what it took to run my own. That was the easy part, I fumbled more with typos and other goofs.

Also, watch the items in the RSS that might need escaping in the JavaScript (quotes tripped me a few times),- I also do not know what do do about the XML that is dynamicly created by scripts (e.g. from CAREO and our MLS Search) as it yields calls to my parser with double query strings (??)

D'Arcy is _always_ listening... Might not be communicative, but I'm listing.

Thanks for posting the source to the PHP/RSS thingy!

Thanks, Alan. Great resource. Hey, does anyoen know how to open another page within the WebCT Homepage? WebCT doesn't like iframes and I've not had luck with bypassing the Javascript within WebCT. Would appreciate any hints.

Alan,

Great to see OnyxRSS is working out for you. I found this post of yours through my referral logs. The College I attend uses Blackboard, maybe I'll show them the way. :)
