1 node.module node_feed($nids = FALSE, $channel = array())

Page callback: Generates and prints an RSS feed.

Generates an RSS feed from an array of node IDs, and prints it with an HTTP header, with Content Type set to RSS/XML.

Parameters

$nids: (optional) An array of node IDs (nid). Defaults to FALSE so empty feeds can be generated with passing an empty array, if no items are to be added to the feed.

$channel: (optional) An associative array containing 'title', 'link', 'description', and other keys, to be parsed by format_rss_channel() and format_xml_elements(). A list of channel elements can be found at the RSS 2.0 Specification. The link should be an absolute URL.

Deprecated

since 1.5.0
