    I was inspired by matt and MdSalih to make myself a nice active desktop.

    I want to integrate the resent forum posts, and maybe recent news on to it.
    since it is a php site, i cant simply steal the code :D

    Maybe one of the admins will be so kind to give me (and all the members) the code that the site main page uses ;)

    we do have a XML backend for the front page news categories...

    can be found here:
    All news can be found here:
    http://www.xp-erience.org/modules.php?modname=backend&action=rdf

    If you would like a selected category you can go to this link:
    http://www.xp-erience.org/modules.php?modid=1
    select which ever section your wanting... and it'll give you the link to the back end for that.

    The copy on my desktop can be found here:
    http://xp-erience.mdsalih.com/xml.php
    The source is here:
    http://xp-erience.mdsalih.com/xml.phps

    feel free to have a play with it... if you want it show a selected category replace the link in the fifth line... and it'll work smoothly :)

    The last 5 posts for the forums is unavailable yet... i'll code a seperate module for this... will select the last 5 posts and dump it into a text file... from which you can open up and display on a page... that;d probably be the easiest way to go about it :) - but dont expect this any time soon... as i'm run over with exam revision atm :(
