View Full Version : BBS News feed for webmasters
I know there are alot of aspiring webmasters on the BBS with Palace sites so this might be of intrest to some of you.
You can now get a BBS news feed (last 10 headlines from the news database) on your website:

To get the code:
Please post a short note here if you are using the feed or if you are having any problems:

Extremely cool. Just one question - I take it you can change the width dimension from 30% to a set number of pixels?
Blatant praise of the BBS (http://www.dooyoo.co.uk/servlets/OpinionDisplayConnector?template=opinion&sessionID=&opinionID=111837&order=default&action=)

Yes you can change the width or the table properties:
Glad you like http://www.cpfc.org/ubb/smile.gif
Thanks Dave. This will be great for my new Palace page.

Ive played about with it a little Dave, and I like the concept. Still reluctant to use it though.
Can the code be changed so that after clicking the link to the particular news item, it opens in a new window. Basically I dont want people leaving my site totally to view the news.
Also, can the same be done for the last ten BBS topics? Again opening up in a new window?
I'd like the tie in with the BBS, as this would represent a simple 'virtual' webring.
Ta in advance http://www.cpfc.org/ubb/smile.gif

Id assume you can add a Target=_blank in the link... but it does say "dont edit below this line" so on your head be it

U cant put that it because it would only apply to the general BBS link at the bottom, and not the news feed links.
The feed now opens news items in a new window it was always supposed to- An oversight on my part- Now fixed http://www.cpfc.org/ubb/smile.gif
Regarding a latest topics feed: I am having some problems getting this feed to generate correctly. This should be available in some form in the future- I'll keep whoever is intrested informed.
Like Uri Geller I'm a good speller.
Oh and there are easier instructions here http://cpfc.org/news/docs/newsfeed.html
