Hi there,

I have added the below code to display a RSS feed on my football.php page. I called the function "CustomRSSFeed()" on the football.ss and it did not run.....

class Football_Controller extends Page_Controller {

function CustomRSSFeed() {
$feed = new SimplePie("http://newsrss.bbc.co.uk/rss/sportonline_world_edition/football/rss.xml");
$feed->feed->init();
$output = new DataObjectSet();
if($items = $feed->feed->get_items(0, 10)) {
foreach($items as $item) {
$output->push(new ArrayData(array(
"Title" => $item->get_title(),
"Link" => $item->get_link()
)));
}
}
return $output;
}

}

Am I going about this the right way? Any help or advice would be grateful as I am still getting my head around this style of programming.

Cheers,
Miles
