I’ll explain with more detail what I did to get piflasa working. Go to http://www.php.net/fopen and find the user comment toward the bottom from “info at b1g dot de” posted 24-Oct-2005. Copy the class declaration code for the HTTPRequest class to the top of the piflasafeed.php file. (You can remove what is in that file previously.) Then, below the class declaration put the following:
$r = new HTTPRequest($_GET[‘FeedUrl’]);
Basically, what this does is declare a class that works around your host’s configuration that disallows the use of the ‘file_get_contents’ function in PHP, then creates an instance of that class and calls it’s DownloadToString method and prints the results. Hope that helps.
