    XML set up questions
    Hey Guys and Gals,

    I've search the forums and have been unable to find answers for what I'm looking for. If this forum is not the approriate place feel free to move it or kindly direct me where I should be.

    I've got several stores up and running and currently cut and paste most of the info. The merchants who do have the "make a page" and other quick page makers I use and am happy with. What I can't seem to grasp is the XML datafeeds for that continuous updated info on products from merchants who dont use these. Is it legal to use one of the "make a page" pages and modify it for other merchant feeds or is that not possible?

    I use MS FP and have hosts that can support php and asp. I've spend many an hour late into the night on FP, FTP uploading, and trying different ways to get the datafeed info to show up but nothing works. Apparently there is more to it than just pasting an xml url to FP.

    After the learning curve, I had my first two sites up pretty fast but I'm at a roadblock with xml. Any step by step tutorials for "XML Dummies"? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    You might want to read a little bit about XSLT in order to transform XML documents into XHTML. There are loads of tutorials on this topic.

    Hope this helps.

    Not all xml feeds are the same (some are eg some news feeds with similar formats) - generally you need some sort of parsing program (in perl, php or asp) to get the xml data and then display it on a webpage.
