Chapter 12. Weird Hap'nins—Building a News Aggregating Site

Bad news is always good news for the press. This is why Vaughan Pyre has decided to take advantage of this fact and create a web site that will aggregate bad news and weird happenings from all over the world. The content of the site will be entirely derived from Really Simple Syndication(RSS) feeds from several sources (each feed being automatically fetched and its items displayed on the web site).

Weird Hap'nins requirements will be the need to:

  • Get external feed sources and allocate them to menu links on the web site
  • Create the means to automatically fetch and display article items located in the feeds
  • Display blocks of latest content from each feed source on the front page
