Website Template News Feed

RSS and Javascript Newsfeeds


RSS newsfeeds are all the buzz. An RSS feed is handy on your desktop or in your Yahoo pages but what about adding some live news to your website. You can add RSS to a website, however, this is usually involved and generally is no better than HTML or Javascript news sources. In some cases if you use an RSS feed some viewers will not be able to view this news. RSS involves XML and PHP and this requires extra learning, coding and time. Below are some quick solutions to adding an HTML or Javascript live news feed to any template or website.

Before you start
Below are some recommended newsfeed services to use. If you use any of these services be sure to read their "Terms of Use" or "Policies" as many feeds have different rules.

Your display options
The samples on this page are showing newsfeeds in small windows on the right. If you want the content right on an HTML page instead, such as on your home or links pages, skip the next section and go right to "News Feed Services" later on this page. If you want to use a small window like the samples on the right at your site, on any page or in a .js file such as in your sidebar.js or under the links on a vertical menu in your menu.js check below.
