I have been trying to create an RSS feed for the Marques blog for a couple hours, and am at the point where I’m about to throw in the towel.
What makes this blog so frustrating is that it does not - at least to a newbie - contain any clear item classes or ids for its blog entries. Everything is essentially dumped into one class container with a name, and the items/blog entries are only delineated by style. See the following screenshot with notations:
Luckily, the bottom of each blog entry contains a “Perm-A-Link” where you can access the article at its own unique URL (i.e., instead of simply linking back to the main page/container). Without a clear class/id name to designate each blog entry, however, I can’t figure out how to create an RSS feed that contains the titles of each entry. I’ve tried numerous variations, but have not had any luck.
At the moment, I’ve reverted to a “simplistic approach” that only relies on the permalink. Below you will find the basic info for this approach, and a screenshot of its results from the Feed Creator.
url_contains (each permalink starts with the following - and only varies by six letters/numbers placed after the equal sign): https://www.marques.org/blogs/class99?XID=
While I understand why the “simplistic approach” approach above lacks the title for each entry, I can’t figure out how to get anything else working for this blog. Does anyone have any suggestions for setting up a feed for it? In short, I’d like it to include the title and use the pemalink as its url. Nothing too complicated - or so I thought!
More generally, when items lack a class or id name, but all use the same style, is it possible to use this information to designate the item? In this blog, each is grouped under the following div:
<div style="border-bottom: 1px solid #bca200; padding: 5px;">
As always, thanks for any help you can lend!!
