In Part one they lay the foundation, explaining how the tutorial will work, what the parts are, and what the parts do. Then, it’s on to the code, showing first how to fetch and parse the remote feeds and create the DIV the results will be dropped into.
Part two takes the next steps and creates the form to add a feed to be parsed, the functionality to insert it and its information into the database, and to grab the list of feeds from the database and read in the contents.
It’s a pretty basic tutorial, but great for those just starting out with this handy, powerful functionality. It requires a bit of knowledge about PHP, but most of the code needed is spelled out for you. Plus, you can download the code as well.
