Read RSS feed in Php

We need external item to incorporate in website.

Here i have shared the method for read RSS feed using php.

 

RSS (Rich Site Summary; originally RDF Site Summary; often called Really Simple Syndication) is a type of web feed[2] which allows users to access updates to online content in a standardized, computer-readable format. These feeds can, for example, allow a user to keep track of many different websites in a single news aggregator. The news aggregator will automatically check the RSS feed for new content, allowing the content to be automatically passed from website to website or from website to user. This passing of content is called web syndication. Websites usually use RSS feeds to publish frequently updated information, such as blog entries, news headlines, audio, video. An RSS document (called “feed”, “web feed”,[3] or “channel”) includes full or summarized text, and metadata, like publishing date and author’s name.

 

<?php
//get the q parameter from URL
$xml=(“http://www.pkbhandari.com/feed/”);
$xmlDoc = new DOMDocument();
$xmlDoc->load($xml);//get elements from “<channel>”
$channel=$xmlDoc->getElementsByTagName(‘channel’)->item(0);
$channel_title = $channel->getElementsByTagName(‘title’)
->item(0)->childNodes->item(0)->nodeValue;
$channel_link = $channel->getElementsByTagName(‘link’)
->item(0)->childNodes->item(0)->nodeValue;
$channel_desc = $channel->getElementsByTagName(‘description’)
->item(0)->childNodes->item(0)->nodeValue;

//output elements from “<channel>”
echo(“<p><a href='” . $channel_link
. “‘>” . $channel_title . “</a>”);
echo(“<br>”);
echo($channel_desc . “</p>”);

//get and output “<item>” elements
$x=$xmlDoc->getElementsByTagName(‘item’);
for ($i=0; $i<=2; $i++) {
$item_title=$x->item($i)->getElementsByTagName(‘title’)
->item(0)->childNodes->item(0)->nodeValue;
$item_link=$x->item($i)->getElementsByTagName(‘link’)
->item(0)->childNodes->item(0)->nodeValue;
$item_desc=$x->item($i)->getElementsByTagName(‘description’)
->item(0)->childNodes->item(0)->nodeValue;
echo (“<p><a href='” . $item_link
. “‘>” . $item_title . “</a>”);
echo (“<br>”);
echo ($item_desc . “</p>”);
}
?>

 

 

<script>
function showRSS(str) {
if (str.length==0) {
document.getElementById(“rssOutput”).innerHTML=””;
return;
}
if (window.XMLHttpRequest) {
// code for IE7+, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari
xmlhttp=new XMLHttpRequest();
} else {  // code for IE6, IE5
xmlhttp=new ActiveXObject(“Microsoft.XMLHTTP”);
}
xmlhttp.onreadystatechange=function() {
if (this.readyState==4 && this.status==200) {
document.getElementById(“rssOutput”).innerHTML=this.responseText;
}
}
xmlhttp.open(“GET”,”getrss.php?q=”+str,true);
xmlhttp.send();
}
</script>
