RSS Feed?

Does anyone know how to add an RSS feed to a template in blogger. I was hoping to add the Liberal Democrats National news feed to my page but I cannot see how I do it.

http://www.libdems.org.uk/

When I click on the RSS feed link on this page it comes up with a lot of code most of which seems to be sections which relate to the current news items on the page. Do I chop out most of this and if so which bits do I need? Any help most gratefully received.

You need to find a RSS feed hoster.... something like Magpie RSS:

Works pretty good...

You need a RSS parser - This is what I was using for my PHP - But I eliminated it as my server was apparently acting up...

Many thanks for everyones quick response. They have been very helpful and as a result I now have the feed up and running. I posted my query at 4.49 and by 6.15 I had it working! Amazing and once again many thanks for all the responses.

If you want a more generic option - i.e., for feeds not provided in this way - there are some RSS to JavaScript parsers which you can add to your blog in a similar way.

http://itde.vccs.edu/rss2js/build.php and http://p3k.org/rss/?setup=true are two - Google JavaScript and RSS for more.

Thanks they look very interesting. I think I may well play around with the first one of those

To everyone else, thanks also, very useful.
