Magpie RSS/Atom parser powers Oracle Apps link blog listing

I’ve just installed the magpie plugin for Expression Engine which retrieves and parses RSS/Atom feeds. In lay man’s terms it gives you the ability to syndicate/copy the content of an RSS feed.

For this blog I’m using it to produce a listing of the latest entries added to the Oracle Apps Link Blog.

If you take a look at the left hand column of the main page you will see a new heading entitled Recent bookmarks & links. Underneath the heading there’s a listing of all the most recent links added to the link blog.
