    ----
We now have a standard RSS/XML/RDF feed for your use.

It is located here:

http://www.security-forums.com/forum/rdf.php

There is a Windows viewer here:

http://www.headlineviewer.com/

Mac Viewer:

http://ranchero.com/software/netnewswire/

X-platform:

http://www.disobey.com/amphetadesk/

More here: http://blogspace.com/rss/readers

You can use it on your web site with any php/asp/jsp XML feed module.

An example of it in use is here:

http://www.securityflaw.com/

It only pulls technical articles, no general chat and off-topic stuff.

You can also use it in Trillian Pro if you have the news feed plugin:

File - Preferences - News - Add Custom Feed

Fill in the details as below:



Then click Add - Ok

The feed will show up as below:

Oi, I was testing it Very Happy

Is anyone using it now?

I find it particularly useful for keeping up to date with what is moving.

Great!

The location can be used with the KDE program ``KNewsTicker'', too. Just add the URL and it'll start picking up news-items...

Yeh got it running here -> http://sub.gotdns.org/sfdc-jump.php

IE6 displays it dodgy for some reason will fix it, Mozilla is fine.

EDIT: P,s Notice the security forums in the link text Google will like that for a backlink.

I just have a bash script that does wget and cronjob, fairly simple.

DO you have the source for you php script for the page?
I would like to see it.

I was actually asking if anyone has source code I can use rather then an example of it. It seems the only script I found uses some XML object that is not found on my web server.

Thanks,

Heres what i use got of some site ->
Code:
<?php
class RSSParser {

   var $insideitem = false;
   var $tag = "";
   var $title = "";
   var $description = "";
   var $link = "";

   function startElement($parser, $tagName, $attrs) {
      if ($this->insideitem) {
         $this->tag = $tagName;
      } elseif ($tagName == "ITEM") {
         $this->insideitem = true;
      }
   }

   function endElement($parser, $tagName) {
      if ($tagName == "ITEM") {
         printf("<dt><b><a href='%s' target='_blank'>%s</a></b></dt>",
            trim($this->link),htmlspecialchars(trim($this->title)));
         printf("<dd>%s</dd>",htmlspecialchars(trim($this->description)));
         $this->title = "";
         $this->description = "";
         $this->link = "";
         $this->insideitem = false;
      }
   }

   function characterData($parser, $data) {
      if ($this->insideitem) {
      switch ($this->tag) {
         case "TITLE":
         $this->title .= $data;
         break;
         case "DESCRIPTION":
         $this->description .= $data;
         break;
         case "LINK":
         $this->link .= $data;
         break;
      }
      }
   }
}

$xml_parser = xml_parser_create();
$rss_parser = new RSSParser();
xml_set_object($xml_parser,&$rss_parser);
xml_set_element_handler($xml_parser, "startElement", "endElement");
xml_set_character_data_handler($xml_parser, "characterData");
$fp = fopen("http://www.security-forums.com/forum/rdf.php","r")
   or die("Error reading RSS data.");
while ($data = fread($fp, 4096))
   xml_parse($xml_parser, $data, feof($fp))
      or die(sprintf("XML error: %s at line %d",
         xml_error_string(xml_get_error_code($xml_parser)),
         xml_get_current_line_number($xml_parser)));
fclose($fp);
xml_parser_free($xml_parser);
?>

Ok for those of you with PHP sites, I've found some PHP RSS aggregators:

http://magpierss.sourceforge.net/

http://minutillo.com/steve/feedonfeeds/

And standalone, FeedDemon: http://www.bradsoft.com/feeddemon/

Author: djlanman PostPosted: Fri Sep 26, 2003 5:32 am    Post subject: Does anyone have ASP code for these feeds?
    ----
I've looked everywhere, and can't seem to find a good place to start. I'd like to add feeds from CERT, etc using ASP.

Thanks! Hello! Waving!

Can the feed be output as "application/rss+xml" instead of "text/rss" this would allow firefox users to add the feed as a live bookmark and should work perfectly with other RSS readers too.

Also adding this line...
<link rel="alternate" title="SFDC" href="http://www.security-forums.com/forum/rdf.php" TYPE="application/rss+xml">

To the front page of the site, under the other <link> tags would be nice too.

See slashdot or theregister for examples of RSS being setup this way.

If you are using firefox, you can see why this is useful by clicking the orange RSS button which appears on these sites and "subscribing" to it, what it provides is a bookmark which is auto-updated based on the feed.

I have these bookmarks in my personal toolbar folder so I can get an updated drop-down list of new items, this would be really good to have on SFDC too and requires minimal changes.

Thanks in advance.

This header has now been added, apologies for the delay there was a slight error in the feed. Although the feed worked perfectly the 'live' bookmarks didn't work in firefox until this was fixed.

Live bookmarks now work and the RSS orange button now appears as suggested

Please note that we have fixed the bug where the register link remains in the RHS links even when logged on.

Also notice that we have added a small RSS button to the RHS links above to make it much easier for you to locate. It's the small orange square on the right side of the site up top there... Smile
