Hi Steve,

I want to create a “News” site and would like to add syndicated news feeds and articles (world news, top stories, health, etc) What component can you suggest?

Thanks --mike

Hi Mike

You've got several options but essentially you're looking for a RSS importer.

One example, on LakeLanier.com we use a component called Feed2Post that actually imports the articles into Joomla. We can then treat them as normal articles.

On the commercial side there is the iJoomla.com News Portal that allows RSS feeds to sit alongside normal articles: [url:295u97p7]http://www.ijoomla.com/ijoomla-news-portal/ijoomla-news-portal/index[/url:295u97p7]

If you'd just like a page of RSS feeds, you can grab one of these:
[url:295u97p7]http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/external-contents/rss-readers[/url:295u97p7]

If you choose a component, you can make a menu link to it.
