NotePage’s SQL2RSS Script Converts Databases to RSS Feeds

Oct 17, 2006

NotePage, Inc. has announced SQL2RSS, a new php script that allows users to convert MySQL databases to RSS feeds. RSS is a format for syndicating information on the internet. This new SQL2RSS script allows users to convert information that is stored in a database into an RSS feed, for syndication and distribution.

When using SQL2RSS a publisher has control over the content in the resulting RSS feed. Administrators and publishers control the database query, which allows them to determine what data is inserted into the RSS feeds from the database. The SQL2RSS script joins five other scripts in the RSS Scripts directory. Access to the scripts directory is freely available to all registered users of FeedForAll and FeedForAll Mac, or a subscription to the scripts directory can be purchased for $29.95. A subscription grants users access to all of the RSS scripts, which can be used to publish and manipulate RSS feeds.

Current scripts contained in the directory include RSS Cache, FutureRSS, and RSSmesh. The RSS Cache script module expedites the retrieval and conversion of RSS feeds into html web pages. The FutureRSS script enables webmasters to prepare content for their RSS feeds in advance, and have it automatically appear at the desired date and time. The RSSmesh script allows for multiple RSS feeds to be merged into a single RSS feed. All of the scripts dynamically manipulate the RSS feeds in realtime.
