Recent Updates Script

    Help, I'm pulling my hair out trying to figure out how I can create an XML feed that will track the 100+ blogs on my site and publish the first paragraph of the 5 most recently updated. I want the feed to publish in a box on my home page. I've searched Google for the answer and cannot come up with it. How do sites create that list of "recent articles"?

    Using blogger. It has Atom/XML built in, but I can't figure out how to make more than one blog go into a single feed.

    You probably would just need to make a script that reads all the feeds, then writes the entries out to a single file.

    Is there anybody out there who can help me with this? I am not a programmer. I found a site that allows one to combine RSS feeds into a single feed, but it doesn't look like I can then put it on my own site. I am desperate ... this is ridiculous because I know it's probably a simple script since I've seen it on many websites. :confused:
