Adding a Headline News to Web Page?
Posted on 2005-03-01
A couple months ago, I tried to add a Headline News Service to my website. In other words, when users would visit my website, they would see news headlines.
I tried to use Yahoo's RSS news feed, so I obtained the code for that from Yahoo. The instructions said that I needed to use a news aggregator to have the web page automatically update the news headlines. I obtained a news aggregator from CGI Resource Index. After installing the Perl based News Aggregator I found out that I needed a paid version to use it for RSS news feeds. The free version, only allowed me to update my webpage manually.
However, I am looking for a free option. My site barely earns enough to exist. Also, I don't want a News Service that has too many advertisements or where users will have to install an obscure program for it to work. Finally, I don't want to program this from the bottom up, because I think I can find a ready built game. I just can't find it yet...
Where can I get this? Please let me know. Thank you.
