Ok, exactly what the title is. I would like to make an rss widget, and I am not sure exactly how to do it. I have visited apple's website and a bunch of other websites, but I am still unable to create a working rss widget. Any help would be great! I know that my question is not specific, but that is because I am not sure about it, hahaha. Thanks for any help you guys give me!

A little HTML, a little JS to finesse the XML (one to parse, one to import), and some time. It's not too much different from programing a website...if you can do that on a moderate level, you can do a widget.

(On a side note, this belongs in the Software Programming & Web Scripting forum...at least for now...don't repost, we'll have it moved.)

I tried putting the rss url into the samplerss widget, but I could not get it to work correctly. Sorry for posting in the wrong section, and thanks for trying to help me out!

here is the link (I just changed the prefix from feed to html, it that is what you mean)

I believe that this site is even on the same server as macosx.com, lol, but anyways, I am trying to make a widget that would either show exactly what "new posts" or "today's posts" shows, or what the rss feed shows, I would rather the new posts be viewed through the widget.
