Hi, I've just built a basic web site, but I now realise (by going through the process) that I need to understand other languages & processes in order to make the site streamlined & fully functional. Because I've only learnt html & css (on a basic level) my understanding of php, sql, js, xml, etc is very poor. I therefor need some advice on what the best mechanisms are for inputting data, storing it & displaying it on the web, possibly with some type of rss feed too. The basic process the site is doing, can be described as follows: 1. Users enter data using an online form. 2. Data is stored on a database & manually verified. 3. Certain info from the database is automatically displayed on the site (but not all) in a friendly viewable format. 4. Every time the site is updated a feed is created (like an rss or blog). The first two processes I have achieved, but I am exploring ways of achieving the 3rd & 4th processes. Any advice on what methods or languages would be best to use would be greatly appreciated. I'm happy to learn any coding required. The data set can be stored in various formats (xlsx, csv, ods, tsv, etc), its really a question of the best way to interpret it & automatically display it that I am exploring. Along with creating the feed. Thanks for any advice. Old Guy.
I wonder if anyone can help me? I am trying to connect to a RSS feed - which is in a xml file format - and display selected content from the feed in a web page; I am using a Wordpress site to display the output but I do not think that is really relevant. What I am stuck on is how exactly I import [connect to] the feed and then display selected content from the feed. I am used to dynamic content using PHP, MySQL, scripts, client and server side scripting etc so I feel that I should be able to work this out but am finding it very difficult to find reading material on the subject that I want. Can someone pls advise, detail:1. connect to a RSS feed2. display selected content from the feed using XML Thanks...
