Improved installers ease setup of RSS generation and display tools for websites

New installers for CaRP and Grouper make it easy to get up and running with RSS feeds on your website.


OREM, Utah--13 October 2004--Nontechnical webmasters wishing to take advantage of the many benefits of RSS newsfeeds will benefit from the recently released new installers for CaRP (caching RSS parser) and Grouper (RSS generator). For many webmasters, the new installers completely automate the tasks of discovering application paths, setting proper access permissions, and other tasks which previously required manually entering commands via Telnet or SSH. For those whose website configurations do not enable the installer to automate all tasks, instructions for the manual configuration steps have been clarified, enabling them to be handled via simple copy and paste operations.

RSS and Atom newsfeeds are an increasingly popular tool for displaying up-to-date content on a website. They are often used to import news, commentary, and other information from other websites. They are also useful as a standard method for displaying information from one part of one's own website in other places on the site.

Recently, search engine optimization specialists have begun using newsfeeds to boost search engine rankings by ensuring that a webpage always contains fresh content, pertinent to the subject of the page. Many sites offering newsfeeds publish them as JavaScripts, which are not indexed by search engines, and are thus unsuitable for this purpose. CaRP solves this problem by inserting the newsfeed content directly into the HTML code of a webpage, where it is visible to search engines.

Both CaRP and Grouper run on PHP-enabled websites.
