How to create an RSS Feed from a website without one?

I remember I use to do this very easily on the old UI of Pipes.

There is a basketball site I check for news about my team. ( http://hoopshype.com/rumors/tag/sacramento_kings ) That has little paragraphs of the latest rumors about the team.

I am trying to create an RSS feed that just only contains the (beginning?) text of each paragraph as a new entry with a link to the page.

Here is an image of what I mean:


Is this possible? Can someone point me in the right direcion?

  • hello,

    It is possible, the currently recommended module is the XPath Fetch page. However there is a bug in it*, so if you fall in this case, you can also use the Fetch page module in the 'deprecated' category.

    *if the content parsed includes text which in turn include formatting markups, portions of the text are 'forgotten'. Example" the parsing of the string lorem ipsum <strong>lorem_middle</strong> ipsum_end will give you a tree with two items, a [p] containing lorem ipsum, but when referenced, providing ipsum_end (or the other way around, I don't remember), and a correct [strong] containing lorem_middle and referencing the same content.
