Feeding your blogs into your Dreamweaver website

Phew!  Done it.

This is a novice level blog simply describing how I pulled my wordpress blogs into my website – all for free.

So, firstly I spent a good hour or so Googling for RSS feeds into websites before I happened upon the right search terms.  I finally found what I was looking for at http://www.rssinclude.com/ via this list of services.

rssinclude is a free service which creates the code for you to add straight into Dreamweaver and it pulls your blogs directly into your website.

I set up a wordpress blog, with the feed address as mywordpress address/feed and added it when prompted into rssinclude.

Beautifully simple, you can edit the look of the feed and check it before you create the final code.

Copy the code, paste it into Dreamweaver and literally – that is it!

I’m delighted with the result and, as all technoloy should, it is firing my imagination.

I know that this is probably pretty simple to a lot of people out there, but for the mere mortals amongst us, the self-taught and specialists of other areas – this was a good one.

  1. Hmmmm… I may be doing this for a customer and was (am) unsure of the process so love the fact that you wrote this post. Question: all good for including videos in your posts too?

    Thanks!

  2. When you pasted the php code did it take a while for it to show up?

    • The box showed up but populating it took a little time – but only a few minutes. I saw your other comment, so I trust all is well? So glad to have helped 🙂

  3. thank you thank you thank you. I have been looking for this for 2 days.

    Thanks for this I’m going to try it 🙂

  5. Many thanks in advance,

    I am making an attempt to generate a web-site with Dreamweaver, but have no idea how to produce a coloration banner at the top rated of the household web page. I tried building a desk and environment the cell padding, spacing, and border to zero, but it however floats with white place all close to it when I preview it.

    How can I make it flush with the top rated of the web page (like the search panel at the major of this internet site) and the sides?

    Any enable would be genuinely appreciated!

    • I’d love to help, but I don’t know what you mean by ‘colouration banner’. Can you send a link to a site with an example and I will see if I can help.

  6. I’m not sure if this will make sense but if I do this for my website, will it automatically extend my website size so the posts can all fit on?

    • Hi
      With the web app that I recommended, you can both set the size of the box AND set the value to zero so that the height depends on the feed content.
      I tend to set the box to fit where I am putting in on a site.
      The free account at rssinclude.com limits entries to 10.
      Hope this answers your question, thanks for getting in touch.
