I'm looking into doing this as well. Have you picked out any RSS feed reading software? I'm looking at Magpie:

http://magpierss.sourceforge.net/

It seems pretty simple to put together. I'm gonna try to plug it into my install w/o creating some horrible gaping security hole.

So I've implemented magpie-rss. I built a table in the db to store the rss info, then set up a cron job to get the feed once an hour and overwrite the old feed data. Then I just fetch the data in config.php and make it available to smarty. Made a customer/newsfeed.tpl that loops through the data and displays it. Pretty easy, about an hour and a half of work.

If anyones interested in the code let me know I'll put it up under freebies. Original code adopted by: Christian Jц╦rgensen (http://www.razor.dk) Just modified by me to work with Smarty/X-Cart.

Cool, nice mod. I'd've definitely grabbed it for this site if I hadn't already written my own, but I'd be interested in using it in the future.

Boomer,

I like the looks of your page. I just came across this post, and would be very interested in getting a copy of your code.

Thanks!
