It seems to be a php file. Can i access this data from jquery and what is the best method to achieve this. Before I do any thing I would like to console.log the data so I can read it but im struggling with that to.
I have successfully loaded it via the zRSSFeed plugin and it brings in all the content, but i have no idea to format it. Ideally to start with, I would like to parse the data file and just show the headline and one line of text from the description, and then link it to a new page within the app with further information instead of linking to the URL redirecting them to our website.
Thank you very much. I havent asked if it is available in JSON but i will do as i can get to grips with JSON as that has worked in my test pages and i have some books on that, but this PHP is throwing me. Thanks also for the google feed info. I will investigate in to that, but at least i have something to go now.
The "php" in the URL is completely irrelevant to the client (e.g. web browser). It's just three letters in a URL, and has absolutely no additional meaning to the client. It means that the server probably (but not necessarily) uses PHP to create the page before sending it to you. But the client doesn't know or care about this.
You get a stream of text content, just like you get from any web page. If you want to see what that content looks like, simply navigate your browser to the page, and use File Save in your browser. Then you can examine the content. Or, you can "View Source".
RSS on Wikipedia (see links to external sites for specification, etc.)
My question may look a bit 'unqualified'. Sorry for that.
It is that stream of text content that comes from a php file as result of a load operation that I would like to log. I could not find 'File Save' in the browser's menu (Firefox for instance). And I supppose you don't mean 'Seite speichern unter ...' that is activated by the shortcut CTRL+S. Could you give me a pointer, please? Is it a plugin or do I need a special browser to log that data?
