    Importing Blogs?

    I just created a blog on Wordpress for testing purposes, but I was wondering if it is possible to import RSS feeds, or possibly another way of getting that information loaded into a MMF app?

    The reason I am asking is because I am relaunching my website (bvoll.com, as of now, it still has my old iWeb page) as a MMF2 flash page. It is mostly a blog page.

    Is it possible to get that information in there (Title, Body, Permalink)? Maybe in a way so it automatically updates the homepage with the latest and previous WordPress blog entries? Anything older, I would just put a link to Wordpress itself.

    If not, would any of you be able to recommend a different way of creating a blog in MMF2? If it comes down to it, I guess I can probably just upload a new version to the server with each new blog entry, but doing something like this, keeping it automatic seems a bit more convienent.

    Thank you!

    (By the way, it's about 1 in the AM here right now, so if any of this post doesn't make sense for whatever reason, please let me know and I can fix it, thanks!)

    You can use the Get object to get the *.rss feed and parse it yourself. This will be difficult though because RSS feeds support some HTML like hyperlinks.

    There's an example of how to easily parse an RSS feed using EasyXML in the example folder for that extension.

    ... But it's not Flash compatible

    Thank you for the replies! Does anyone know another way of adding a 'blog' like thing to a flash app? If not, I'll probably just do the update the app with every new post, with links to WordPress, not as fancy, but it gets the job done!

    Thank you!
