Several Blogs in Portal, combine to latest entries on starting page

Hello,

we're developing a big portal with Mojo and we've transfered content from Typo3 to Mojo. The templating was easy, but know - after including content - we need help.

The page has two Blogelements. One for the news with six categories and one for article like interviews, reports and so on, sorted in categories too. On our starting page, we want to combine this two blogs and present the latest six entries of each. Each blog element has RSS.

Do you have any idea to achieve this goal?

System:
IIS 6 on Windows Server 2003
MS SQL 2008
latest Mojo Portal

Thanks for answers!

Hi Stephan ,

Yes. You can use the  Feed manager module. Add a feed manager module instance to your home page then add your blogs RSS to it.

Hope Helps,

Asad

Hi!

Thanks for your fast answer. I tried this at least, but the Feed Manager needs external URLs, otherwise it says:

  • Web Site Url must be a valid format starting with http:// or https://
  • Feed Url must be a valid format starting with http://

Is there a option, that I have to check for internal RSS-Urls?

No different . just copy your blog RSS link and copy it to feed address field of feed manager and use your site url as web address of it.

Hope Helps,

Asad

Hi Asad,

I tried it, but it doesn't work. On right panel, I receive feeds from another webpage without problems. But it doesn't work with my own feeds. At least, it's slows down the starting page, if I use several Feed Manager. This is the layout of my starting page, if it helps:

Left Panel does not exist on starting page.

Center Panel

  • HTML-Content
  • Latest Articles (does not work with Feed Manager, Feed-URL: blog193.aspx)
  • News (does not work with Feed Manager, Feed-URL: blog200.aspx)
  • HTML Content

Right Panel

  • Latest Forum Entries (works, external Domain, PHPBB-Forum-RSS)
  • Calendar

I will also use several domains (four Domains) on this portal.

you can't use relative urls, you must enter the fully qualified url for the blog feed the same as if it were an external url.

Clearing the feed cache may solve it?

Argh smiley

Hi Asad,

I know, what the problem is. Caused by a special firewall setting, my server cannot communicate with pages hosted on itself. So it can't read its own RSS. This also declares the slowy starting page.  I have to solve this with a host entry or something like this. I'm sorry to steal your time, have forgotten that firewall setting.

But if you have another idea but the feed manager, i'll be glad.

you could run the blog feeds through feedburner and then use the feedburner feed urls in feed manager
