RSS Feed sample

Circleboom supports RSS 0.91, 0.92, 1.0, 2.0 and ATOM to download and process your website's feeds.

Required elements:

  • <title>

  • <link>

  • <pubDate> There should be at least 1 minute between the pubDates if you're planning to send many Tweets. If it is empty, we’ll use Date.UTCNow as "publish date." We don't putpubDates in Tweets; however, we may sort your items using this field to send the most recent ones to Twitter.

  • <guid> A string that uniquely identifies the item. You can give a random GUID or a sequential number here. If your <link> element is empty, this field becomes mandatory.

pubDate Specification

RSS / ATOM specs are based on RFC 2822 specification and require pubDates to have complied with the spec.

PHP Sample

$pubDate = $article[creation_date];
$pubDate= date("D, d M Y H:i:s T", strtotime($pubDate));
// and output should be <pubDate>'.$pubDate.'</pubDate>
