Customize RSS Module? or a custom module?

I would like for example  that the rss module extracts info from different rss feeds on my page. but in a customized way 

For example the last article, the last new, the last event.

To avoid upgrade issues consider creating a custom module.

I havent realy checked th rss module but isnt the features you want replicated by a custom xsl file. Or you could check out the other rss modules that are out there
It is possible in xsl to extract info from different xml

<xsl:value-of select="document('')/channel/title"/>

so what you would do is in you xml variable define variables for each of the rss feeds you want to use something like

<xsl:variable name="feed1"></xsl:variable>
<xsl:variable name="feed2"></xsl:variable>

then create templates for each of the feeds

<xsl:template name="feed1">
<xsl:for each select="$feed1/channel"/>
code here

and then in your main xsl call

<xsl:call-template name="feed1"/>

It can be done with less code but usually the people I talk to know more about then xsl so thsi is a good way to start :)
Have fun and let us see what you come up with.

It would be much simpler and easier, IMO, to do it in code than to have a bunch of different XSLT files kicking around.

the code i posted allows you to reference as many items as you want from within one xsl file. You can simply refererence 10 rss feeds from one xsl file, after all all the content is allready in teh rss feeds. So its only part of displaying and thats what csl is for, no need for a module modification ( altho in my eyes)

Optimized VS.Net Solution for custom modules + free modules

It's called "My Modules" and can be used to develop/debug DNN modules without requiring any core project references. I have blogged about my solution in detail and also posted it for download. In the download package, I have also inclu...

Custom Module with custom pages?

Of course I could add a custom module and edit the content of this module. But this is not what I want to do. Is there any way to add my pages in DNN? If yes how?   Maybe I can create these pages directly in DNN again but there are a few questions / problems I see: 1. The website has to export some data in xml and a local application has to read this data directl...

Custom desktop modules to be Admin modules?
Well, I have to put some custom desktop modules to the Admin level since they are all used by some other modules. For example: Module A,B,C are common modules, while Module X1, X2, X3,X4,X5..... are not common, and X1,X2,X3,X4,X5... use Module A,B,C. And I noticed that the way now DNN does with the admin tabs is similiar with normal tabs but they have no AdministratorRoles. And I also find that there is one file called admin.template in the portal folder. I can find all the definitions of the admin tabs. I simply do the same as what I find, the my own tab is there, the when I click,...

Is there a way to call a module from inside of your own custom module?

Any help is greatly appreciated. ...
