Keepin' Up With The News - Our news source: MoreOver.com
(Page 2 of 4 )

MoreOver.com is one of the best sites I've seen in a while. It allows us, as developers, to strategically integrate selected news into our website with just a bit of copying and pasting.

If you're a developer or run a non-profit (don't sell anything online) website, then you can use the news resources from moreover.com on your site for free. Otherwise, you must pay to use the moreover.com news services.

The MoreOver.com site uses a simple wizard that lets anyone (yes, even a newbie) add a live stream of news which is constantly updated to his or her site. Take a jump across to the MoreOver.com site by clicking here. When the page loads, click on the "Start Wizard" link to begin the news selection wizard.

Once you've opened the wizard, you will get a brief overview of what's on offer as well as a quick rundown of the 5 steps involved in creating your news feed code. Click on the "Start the Wizard" button to jump to step one.

You'll now be presented with the main configuration page that allows you to choose how your news feed will look, news topics that will be displayed and a couple of neat advanced options that let you choose heading, source and web feed fonts, colours and sizes, table width, etc.

Let's pretend that we're running a website that sells computer hardware. We would choose the "Technology" category and the "PC Industry News" subcategory. Clicking on the "Get the code" button at the bottom right of the screen will allow us to enter our website URL and email details and get the code that we need to embed into our HTML page sent straight to us via email... how convenient!
