My website part 2 need a script

Post by floodhound2 »

Ok my site is coming along but now I need to know if I any one knows how to get or write a script that can get information off of another web site. For example I want to display the temperature of my home town on my web page using the temperature on weatherchannel.com. Any one heard of such a thing?

Yeah, that should be pretty easy, just use some php to fetch the page then use regular expressions.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It works on my machine...

Hey Thanks, I set up the Temp Widget and have been testing it with some good results. I don’t know how to program in php but I am learning it on the fly.

Appreciate it

Peace

wunderground.com has some nice html/graphics you can cut/paste from their site.
