Magpie RSS is an RSS parser available free from SourceForge.

It consists of a handful of scripts which sit on your site and creates a cache file which needs to be chmod’d to 755 or 777 – you may need to use your FTP tool to do that – or Magpie may do it for you.

So, what do you need to do?

This is the main page of a series (yet to be written) of How-To guides for adding RSS feeds to your website.

It’ll cover HTML and PHP scripted sites and all the tools will be free to use.

Why HTML? Well, some blogging systems and the Blogger sites don’t allow the user to add serverside scripts. Poop to them, but until they relax or allow some controlled way around it then those sites need to be treated as pure HTML.
