Old documentation: Version 2

Examples:
Styles & Classes | Multiple Feeds on a Page | Unordered List | Background Refreshing | Filtering | Aggregating 1 | Aggregating 2 | Amazon.com Associates | JavaScript

This code will display any items from five different newsfeeds which contain the word "Microsoft" in either the title or description. Note that it is a good idea to set up background refreshing when accessing so many newsfeeds from the same page. Also note how $carpconf['poweredby'] was set to '' to avoid having "Newsfeed display by CaRP" displayed after the items extracted from each feed:

<?php
require_once "/path/to/carp.php";

// don't show any channel fields
CarpConf('cborder','');

// display a bullet before each item
CarpConf('bi','&bull ');

// only show items mentioning Microsoft
CarpConf('filterin','microsoft');

// show up to 3 items from each newsfeed
CarpConf('maxitems',3);

// show up to 100 characters of the description
CarpConf('maxidesc',100);

// don't show "Newsfeed display by CaRP" after each newsfeed
CarpConf('poweredby','');

// Update every 2 hours
CarpConf('cacheinterval',120);

// filter and display the data from each newsfeed
CarpCacheShow('http://www.osopinion.com/OSOlinks2.xml');
