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

You may write comments in Markdown. This makes code easy to post, as you can write inline code like `<div>this</div>` or multiline blocks of code in triple backtick fences (```) with double new lines before and after.
