Re: Create an RSS feed for a web page

You can use http://feed43.com/ and it helps really. You put your url and it retrieves the page content. Then, if you have a news site or otherwise, you'll have one or more elements that are repeated on the page, type
Code:
<div class ="news"> content </div> 
<div class ="news"> other content </div> 
[...]
So, you put it as a filter <div class="news">{%}</div> and it will retrieve the corresponding field. Then you put {%1} in title and/or content of the news and fill all the fields ...

Give a url of site you want to watch and also details

Did you "create feed" for your images in your URL? Have you reloaded it? Next, you isolate the element that repeats itself: here is a example that begins with "<table class = abc" and then you paste the source code in the box Item (repeatable) Search Pattern*:

Then you Vary elements that move:

HTML Code:
<table class =abc cellspacing=0 width=100%> <tr bgcolor=#DDECF6> <td> name_of_editor</a> </td> <td align=right> date_or_text</td> </tr> <td <tr> colspan=2> <p class =abc>.... <br /> 
[...] 
<br /> 
<br /> 
<br /> 
<br /> 
</td> </tr> </table> <br>
If all goes well you see he has managed to isolate the data that go well, then there's more to rebuild the flow, putting as item title and a content item ...
