Hey All. I've been using this tutorial to create an RSS aggregator on a site I'm working on.
I have the following code above the doctype in one off my .ss tamplates pages:
//get the simplepie library
//grab the feed
$feed = new SimplePie();
//provide the caching folder
//set the amount of seconds you want to cache the feed
//init the process
//let simplepie handle the content type (atom, RSS...)
I have the simplepie.inc file in the assets folder and a cache directory with full writeable permissions, but unfortunately I'm getting the followng error:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_REQUIRE_ONCE in /tmp/silverstripe-cache-home-isslcom1-public_html/.cache.themes.blackcandy.templates.news.ss on line 9
Would really appreciate any help.

OK I've realised that the template files can't process the php from directly within the template file and I would need to call this php code from the php file for that specific page type.
I have no idea how to do this though. Can someone point me in the right direction?

Yes all PHP code should be in your PHP file!
For a start make a new custom page type (as the tutorials explain) then you can make a custom function which returns a set of all your entries. See http://pastie.org/1479977 for a simple example.
You can also use RestfulService for this sort of work - http://doc.silverstripe.org/sapphire/en/reference/restfulservice#other-uses
