Customization

Setting the feed url

  • Open index.php in a text editor
  • Set the "$feedUrl" variable at the top of the file to point to the RSS feed of your choice, e.g. "http://sports.yahoo.com/sow/rss.xml"
  • Save the file and reload the app
  • Note: by default, yapgen only handles RSS syntax. Also, some feeds may require special handling.
