Hey All,

I have a rss feed which is currently showing 20+ summaries and I only want to show the latest summary (so only ever 1 article).

Here is the code which I am using:
$nid = "foxmain";
				$need_url="http://feeds.news.com.au/public/rss/2.0/fs_breaking_news_13.xml";
				$provider = "Fox Sports";
				$i=0;
				$doc = new DOMDocument();
				$doc->load($need_url);
				$employees = $doc->getElementsByTagName("item");
				foreach( $employees as $employee ) {
					$i++;
					$names = $employee->getElementsByTagName("title");
					$name = $names->item(0)->nodeValue;
					$links= $employee->getElementsByTagName("link");
					$link= $links->item(0)->nodeValue;
					$descriptions= $employee->getElementsByTagName("description");
					$description= $descriptions->item(0)->nodeValue;
					echo " <h4>$name</h4>";
					echo "<p>$description</p>";
					echo " <p><a href=$link target='_blank'><strong>&raquo; More</strong></a> &nbsp; ";
				
					if($getUserData > 0) {
						echo " <a href='public_create_forum.php?an=".$name."&ad=".$description."'><strong>&raquo; Comment</strong></a></p>";
					} else {
						echo " <a id='view_comment_".$i."' href='#' onclick='getforumdata(".$i.");'><strong>&raquo; Comment</strong></a></p>";
					}
				}

Any ideas on this would be great!

Thanks in advance,
PD!!!

Try this for a quick fix:

 
$need_url="http://feeds.news.com.au/public/rss/2.0/fs_breaking_news_13.xml";
				$provider = "Fox Sports";
				$i=0;
				$doc = new DOMDocument();
				$doc->load($need_url);
				$employees = $doc->getElementsByTagName("item");
				foreach( $employees as $employee ) {
while ($i<'2'){					
$i++;
					$names = $employee->getElementsByTagName("title");
					$name = $names->item(0)->nodeValue;
					$links= $employee->getElementsByTagName("link");
					$link= $links->item(0)->nodeValue;
					$descriptions= $employee->getElementsByTagName("description");
					$description= $descriptions->item(0)->nodeValue;
					echo " <h4>$name</h4>";
					echo "<p>$description</p>";
					echo " <p><a href=$link target='_blank'><strong>&raquo; More</strong></a> &nbsp; ";
				
					if($getUserData > 0) {
						echo " <a href='public_create_forum.php?an=".$name."&ad=".$description."'><strong>&raquo; Comment</strong></a></p>";
					} else {
						echo " <a id='view_comment_".$i."' href='#' onclick='getforumdata(".$i.");'><strong>&raquo; Comment</strong></a></p>";
					}
}
				}
