Set up the feed like you would any PHP object. First include the file, then make the new feed. You’ll need to provide the new feed with the title and possibly description and link.
<? include_once("/web/includes/feed.phpi"); $feed = new feed('title', 'description', 'link'); ?>
Description and link are optional, but you should provide them.
Once you have the feed object, you can give it an array of items to make into the feed:
That will create the RSS feed for you.
You must construct the array of items yourself. Each item must itself be an array that contains a title and a publication date. They can also contain a description and a link.
Your feed items must be in a dictionary-style array using specific keys for each RSS field.
|RSS field||array key|
The publication date must be a Unix timestamp.
If you want to give your feed an image, use the “image” method:
$feed->image($title, $url, $width, $height);
The image will be displayed for your feed in feed readers that support it.
RSS is not HTML
You cannot have HTML code inside your feed page. This will invalidate the feed. Keep all of your text inside the PHP markers. The very first line of your file should be “<?”. The very last line should be “?>”.
