Radio Station Uses Content From About.com

2009-08-17 | Category: Case Studies (5), Feeds we like (3)

We love to see how our service is used out there. Have a look at the website http://www.kprs.com for example and scroll down to the bottom of the page. There you can find three RSSboxes.

The Kansas City radio station KPRS uses RSSinclude.com to provide current topics concerning R&B/Soul music and DVDs. Content from About.com is dragged to the KPRS website via RSSinclude.com. Which is quite a good idea! Because About.com is known for having fresh content with high quality.

About.com has lots of different topic categories. So if you are looking for fresh content for your website just try it... We did so too and included the feed concerning the topic "Radio" in this blog:

College Radio Station Raises Funds with Genitals

05/28/14 10:53 am

Here's an amusing story out of San Luis Obispo, home of California Polytechnic State University and that institution's non-profit, student-run radio station.

According to calcoastnews.com two hosts on KCPR-FM promised pics of their genitals and rectums to people who pledged $20 dollars during their April fundraiser. It had to be cash, by the way.

The hosts had a show called Getting It In which covered various sexual topics. I'm sure you won't be too surprised that the hosts were pulled, the show is gone, and nobody in any department at the University seems to want to comment on it.

KCPR-FM is available locally at 91.3 and through the Internet by visiting the listen page.

Swine Flu News - Humans get swine flu, too

2009-04-28 | Category: General (47), Case Studies (5)

I just discovered on of our RSSboxes on www.swine-flu.com.

This is a good example for the usage of our service for short-time, up-to-date information. swine-flu.com uses pheed.me to combine several feeds into one (pheed.me offers this service for free while we require a Premium account for multiple feeds in one RSSbox) and displays the resulting feed in an RSSbox.


I tried the same for a bunch of news feeds (using our own feed mix feature) and created the following, fondly colored RSSbox (color scheme inspired by Miss Piggy) with the extended tabloid template:

More playing: Google News feeds

2009-04-24 | Category: General (47), Case Studies (5)

After tinkering with Twitter yesterday I try to setup a nice RSSbox containing a Google News feed today. My keyword for the news search was "sullenberger", the first term that came into my mind - perhaps because I saw a documentary yesterday in austrian TV.

Google News feeds by default come with lots of overload. The description is built using tables, sometimes there is an image to the left of the news and often there are several links to related news beneath the article.

Without much formatting it looks like this:

Mark Patinkin: R.I. boat captain recalls his role in Miracle on the Hudson rescue   The Providence Journal

Carl Lucas, who lives in South Kingstown but was working on the Hudson River when a US Airways flight ditched in the river, says training was key to success.


Informative, but not very pretty. We are working on a special Google News Box which should fix most of this formatting problems.

Right now an option would be to remove HTML tags completely and limit the number of characters for the article to a fixed amount.

The result, using the Extended Table (Premium accounts only), could look like this:

Case Study: Harbor Ridge Middle School

2009-04-16 | Category: Case Studies (5)

The first case study in a (hopefully never-ending) series of smart ways to use an RSSbox shows a screenshot of Harbor Ridge Middle School.

The RSSbox is used to embed upcoming event information into the homepage of the school's website. Matching colors and separation lines and a styled wrapper around the RSSbox integrate into the page in a nearly seamless way.

Links to several schools in the Peninsula School District that use an RSSbox:
