External RSS Feed Page




11 November 2013 at 12:33pm Community Member, 190 Posts

I'm upgrading to SS3.1 from 2.4 and am using code from the blog module, but it's not working.

I get an "Uncaught LogicException: 0" error.

If I uncomment the include_once (which is what I had in my 2.4 version), I just get a white page.

class FeedPage extends Page {


   function getAbsoluteRssUrl() {
      $urlParts = parse_url($this->RssUrl);
      if(!isset($urlParts['host']) || !$urlParts['host']) {
         return Director::absoluteBaseURL() . $this->RssUrl;
      } else {
         return $this->RssUrl;
function Title() {
return ($this->RssTitle) ? $this->RssTitle : 'RSS Feed';

function getFeedItems() {
$output = new ArrayList();

// include_once(Director::getAbsFile(FRAMEWORK_DIR . '/thirdparty/simplepie/'));

// Protection against infinite loops when an RSS widget pointing to this page is added to this page
if(stristr($_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'], 'SimplePie')) {
return $output;

if(!class_exists('SimplePie')) {
throw new LogicException(
'Please install the "simplepie/simplepie" library by adding it to the "require" '
+ 'section of your composer.json'

$t1 = microtime(true);
$feed = new SimplePie();
if($items = $feed->get_items(0, $this->NumberToShow)) {
foreach($items as $item) {

// Cast the Title
$title = new Text('Title');

$output->push(new ArrayData(array(
'Title' => $title,
'Content' => $item->get_content(),
'Date' => $item->get_date(),
'Link' => $item->get_link()
return $output;


Any help appreciated
