1. you need an rss aggregator for your sitem, heres one:

http://pear.php.net/package-info.php?pacid=22

2. Then you install that shit, basicly just upload the script and then take the bit of code which is in the test file in that package and put it on your page, then change that code to reflect the url of the feed you want to syndicate...

For example: http://www.libcom.org/newswire/backend/weblog.rss wink

Good luck... let me know if u need more help... rss is the way smile

You need ftp access to the site, then you use an ftp client (like cuteFTP or WS_FTP) to upload it.

You know it's well known for corrupting files when it uploads right?

OK, don't think you can get around that. There's plenty of hosting for a couple of quid a month though if you want more flexibility.

I will bring it up at the next well attended meeting, probably after the g8 now. Thanks for your help.
