If you used `Option 1 - Display RSS on RSS2HTML` then it's on their server. If you used `Option 2 - Download free RSS2HTML script` then it's on your server.

// If using cURL, make sure it exists
if (($useFopenURL == 0) && !function_exists("curl_init")) {
  $useFopenURL = -1;
  if (isset($debugLevel) && ($debugLevel >= 3)) {
    echo "DIAG: setting \$useFopenURL=-1 because curl_init() doesn't exist<br>\n";
if (($useFopenURL == -1) && !function_exists("fsockopen")) {
  $useFopenURL = 1;
  if (isset($debugLevel) && ($debugLevel >= 3)) {
    echo "DIAG: setting \$useFopenURL=1 because fsockopen() doesn't exist<br>\n";
if ($useFopenURL == 1) {
  ini_set("allow_url_fopen", "1");
  ini_set("user_agent", "FeedForAll rss2html scripts v3");
$FeedMaxItems = 10000;
$NoFutureItems = FALSE;
if (function_exists("FeedForAll_rss2html_pro") === FALSE) {
  Function FeedForAll_rss2html_pro($source) {
    // This is the place to do any processing that is desired
    return $source;
if (function_exists("FeedForAll_parseExtensions") === FALSE) {
  Function FeedForAll_parseExtensions() {
    return FALSE;
if (function_exists("FeedForAll_rss2html_limitLength") === FALSE) {
  Function FeedForAll_rss2html_limitLength($initialValue, $limit = 0) {
    if (($limit == 0) || (strlen($initialValue) <= $limit )) {
      // ZERO is for not limited
      return $initialValue;
    // Cut the text at the exact point, ignoring if it is in a word.
    $result = substr($initialValue, 0, $limit);
    // Check to see if there are any space we can trim at and if it is not
    // too far from where we are
    $lastSpace = strrchr($result,' ');
    if (($lastSpace !== FALSE) && (strlen($lastSpace) < 20)) {
      // lose any incomplete word at the end
      $result = substr($result, 0, -(strlen($lastSpace)));
      // Append elipses, ... , to show it was truncated
      $result .= " ...";
    return $result;

It's on your server. I found it in the ZIP file I downloaded... Don't you have it?

Why don;t you want to understand? :) It only includes the file you have. It doesn't need the PRO file. it will only include it if you BUY the PRO version. The include statement is only there so you don't have to modify the code when you upgrade. There's no woodoo code in there to include ghost files on a remote server :) The code is all there - in the `` file and in the `rss2html.php` file. It works.
