What would be the best way to get an off-site RSS feed to display in a custom island? I'm not sure if PHP include would work, because I'm not sure how to create a Dump file which would update periodically with the newest RSS entries.

So, I guess it's a two-part question:

1. How do I dump an RSS feed to a file which periodically updates, and

2. Is php include the best way to display the content in the Island?

Thanks!

Okay, it's the damndest thing - both codes in that thread work great, except, I'm trying to use it in multiple islands with a different feed URL in each, and each Island displays duplicate information.... Any ideas? I posted at UBBDev, but thought I'd ask here, just in case.

I took a look & made a suggestion - not sure if it will work, but it is worth a try smile
