Display Latest FeedBurner Post

This snippet will display the latest post in a specified FeedBurner feed. Just set the URL to your desired FeedBurner feed.

$(document).ready(function(){
       $.ajax({
               type: "GET",
               url: "http://feeds.feedburner.com/examplefeed",
               success: function(data){
                       $("#date").text($(data).find("item:first>pubDate:first").text());
                       $("#title").html("<a href='"+$(data).find("item:first>link:first").text()+"'>"+$(data).find("item:first>title:first").text()+"</a>");
                       $("#description").html($(data).find("item:first>description:first").text());
               }
       });
});

This example assumes that there are 3 elements that this information will be sent to, with the ID attributes set to date, title and description respectively.

    No, it won’t. You can’t make something like that. That is cross site scripting.

Posting Code

We highly encourage you to post problematic HTML/CSS/JavaScript over on CodePen and include the link in your post. It's much easier to see, understand, and help with when you do that.

Markdown is supported, so you can write inline code like `<div>this</div>` or multiline blocks of code in in triple backtick fences like this:

```
<script>
  function example() {
    element.innerHTML = "<div>code</div>";
  }
</script>
```
