Here’s a method to get an RSS feed with ColdFusion. This will work in ColdFusion 7 and later.
- Use CFHTTP to generate an HTTP request and handle the response from the server. This should return XML.
- Use XMLParse to attempt to convert the CFHTTP.FileContent response into an XML document object.
- If the result is an XML Document, loop through and display the first six items.
- If the result is not an XML Document, display an error message.
