Putting RSS feeds on your webpage - and create your own content management system

[Tags: , , ]. There's a very useful page at http://www.rss-specifications.com/displaying-rss-feeds.htm about various ways of putting RSS feeds on your site. The first few only allow you to use feeds that have been pre-approved by the likes of feedroll, but go a bit further and the most useful link is to Feedforall.com (who the writer does marketing for). Takes a bit of playing around, but not too much to get it to work well - the most work lies in creating a template for your feeds to sit in.

The great thing about this is that by using a blogging site and then displaying the feed on your own template, you can effectively have your own content management system (CMS), albeit a very basic one, and not too different to simply changing the blog template.

Hi. Just discovered your blog searching "online video" and the timing of this post is excellent. I was just trying to figure out how to have Revver.com's RSS placed on my website (CubeBreak.com) which I manage on Yahoo Site Builder. Revver provides an RSS Feed address, but I can't figure out how to post it. Ideally, I'd like to have my affiliate code in there, so if they click a video I get 20%. Here's a site that is doing it: http://www.sitemovie.com (which is nothing but Revver with a different name).

Thanks!
