|Offering Automatically Updating Syndicated Articles||Article Index | Print | E-Mail|
|Articles are a popular form of syndicated content. They are often offered out for manual syndication – the article is simply displayed with a notice stating that it can be reprinted once the required terms are met. There is another popular format though – automatically updating articles.This tutorial explains an easy method of offering an automatically updated html file to other sites. I have taken the example of an article but the same theory could be applied to other content such as tutorials, images or news.
Yours will be the same, only referring to the URL of your file rather than https://www.purplepages.ie/examples/weeklyarticle.js
In the second part of this tutorial I explain how to create a file for syndication.
You must remember that this file will be displayed on other people’s sites and code with this in mind.
