RSS Options in Mambo

I was a bit disappointed with the standard rss feature in Mambo as it only supports rss 0.91. Suprisingly, there wasn’t a component available that outputs the content in any of the other formats so I thought I’d give it a go. No point in reinventing the wheel so I made use of an excellent class called FeedCreator. It can output in RSS 0.91, 1.0 and 2.0 as well as OPML and ATOM 0.3.

Also supplied is a module that will display the links. The actual links are configurable, in that you can specify what formats your feeds are in (Take a look on the right). Also you can add custom links and images with the module eg the mamboserver.com link is a custom one.

You can download it at mamboforge or from the my downloads section

[Update]I’ve released a beta version of RSSXT 2. New features include remote blogging and pinging of aggregator sites. You can download it at the mamboforge site
