I caught the video by Bertrand Le Roy on taxonomies in Orchard on YouTube. In this video he uses a widget to import a feed from NY Times as an example.
Please note that I’m in no way experienced in this. I am starting a company on a thin shoe string and cannot afford a website designer and so I’m having to learn how to put a fully functioning site together in double quick time.
I want to put an RSS feed to another site or two, on to my site.
I made contact with Bertrand, and he very kindly said that I should look for a specific piece of code. So I went looking in the various files and came up with this:
"blog import /BlogId:<id> /FeedUrl:<feed url> /Owner:<username>\r\n\t" + "Import all items from <feed url> into the blog specified by <id>"
I should then open the command window in the in the orchard cms1/ bin, which I have.
My blog is called "Middle East Business News"
so I entered the following;
blog import /BlogId:<Middle East Business News> /FeedUrl:<http://gulfnews.com/cmlink/1.446098
/Owner:<and my owners name>
This is apparently the wrong format!
So then I entered:
blog import /BlogId:<Middle East Business News> /FeedUrl: <http://gulfnews.com/cmlink/1.446098
/Owner:<my owners name>
and I got this response:
"Error executing command ""blog import.BlogId:Middle East Business News"" This is followed by
"No command found matching arguments""blog import/BlogId:Middle East Business News"". It then list the available commands.
I have tried variations on this but the response is the same.
On Bertrands example the word _slug _appears in the place of the 'Blog Id' the line is 'Slug:blog' . I even tried copying Bertrands example and set up a blog called blog but all I got was a response that 'Blog' could not be found etc.
Also the sites whose feeds I wish to use have a number of RSS feed for differing subjects so is it just a case of entering the code for each url individually untill I have all the feeds that I want for the blog?
I am quite sure that it is very simple but some how I am stuffing it up.
I have trawled my way through this forum but could not find any thing that made sense to me and I have looked accross the web but no joy.
Please may I ask for help and guidance on how to set this up? All I want to do is set up a RSS feed to put content into my webpage.
