Feed from Yahoo Groups?

Post by pitchc » Fri May 29, 2009 5:16 pm

I am new to using S9Y so bear with me here...our group has a webpage (using s9y) and a Yahoo Group...I want to know if I can have some Yahoo group posts, such as our calendar, feed or appear on our webpage so I don't have to maintain the calendar in 2 locations. If you reply please provide very detailed (easy for a novice to understand) feedback, thanks!

I often use the staticpage plugin to integrate pages using an iframe. If the yahoo group is public you can pull messages from the group RSS feed sidebar plugin, but that doesn't sound like what you want. You could also roll your own custom template page, which is far too involved for me to outline it quickly.

In regards to the Iframe method, It works pretty well for this type of problem most of the time. Create a static page, and simply have the code be something like:

Code: Select all

<p align=center><iframe src='http://url...' width='100%' height='700'></iframe></p>

Can Yahoo give a rss-feed of this content?
Ciao, Stephan
