Java script to show “What’s new” on site

Hi all,

I’ve been looking for a way (technology unimportant ) to get a couple of headlines from my own (handmade) rss feed file onto my website’s homepage.

I stumbled on this site:

and plugged it into my homepage.

Tell me what you think of this!

If anyone would know of JAVA script code that doesn’t use this external site, please let me know, I’d rather be in control myself.

  1. Hi JK,

    Since no one else give You any feedback here comes my opinion :)

    It looks OK and I would suggest that You re-arrange the startpage so the secion “What’s new” is viewable when accessing the page and not as now scroll down to view it.

    I don’t have a clue when it comes to RSS & JavaScript but in general I agree with Your wish.

    Kind regards,

  2. Hi JK.

    Looks fine to me.
    It actually took me a few seconds to find what you were on about – it was the “powered by …” notice which identified the section you were referring to.

    Integrated pretty well with your site.

    Does this reduce your site maintenance overall?

  3. It does integrate well, yes.
    It will save me some time if I leave out the “News” page.

    I was just looking for a quick way to get a few headlines on the front page and thought I’d try using my rss file for this. Works out well.

  4. JK:

    Did you have to customize your backend in order to have a brief description along with the title?


  5. Doco: No, options like these are set through the website that provides the service. You choose things like whether or not to get the description, to include the date/time stamp and things like that. Even up to the font you want to get (it just so happened mine was available).
    I could have easily removed the small link at the bottom, but I thought it to be considerate to give them credit for it.

Posting code? Use <pre> tags for VBA and <code> tags for inline.
