I am looking at SS for a new project. One requirement I have is the ability to bring in RSS feeds from industry news sites and I want them combined and featured on a page. Is this possible with SS. I did see an aggregation module but it seems to be unreleased.

I think the rssaggregator module does exactly what you want. You can download it and try it out if you want from the svn repo -

http://open.silverstripe.com/changeset/latest/modules/rssaggregator/trunk?old_path=/&filename=/rssaggregator/&format=zip

(or if you currently use SVN just checkout that URL).

You can at least use that module as a base / reference if you cannot get it to work. Reading / Parsing feeds is mostly done through the RESTful service class. So you might want to read up on that if the module doesn't help

Thanks Will, I will try that and also look at the RESTful class which with some tweaking seems like it can also do the trick.
