PHP RSS generator using simple xml

Today`s project was to generate an rss feed for the records in my web-project site using simple xml.

I new that most of the work had already been done, since i created the sitemap for my project. Check here.

So with a little search on the net i found some help. I am not going to write down all the steps that i ve taken to modify code written by others..but just to share some useful resources in case some novice php developer needs to do the same..

Initially i matched my existing code with the example written by Spotless Web Design.¬†What a great and descriptive article…

Most of the word had already been done, but i needed to add some more quality stuff in the raw xml file like the atom link, so i got some more help from this guy.

Finally in order to validate the rss, i visited FeedValidator a couple of times.

 

That`s it for today … Next project is to link this RSS feed with an IFTTT rule to automatically post images to pintrest and twitter.. lets see how this goes.
