Basic SimplePie Usage

You'll need a of copy SimplePie for the include right at the top here.

<?php
    require_once('inc/simplepie.inc');
    
    $feed = new SimplePie();
    
    $feed->set_feed_url(array(
    	'http://search.twitter.com/search.atom?q=movie'
    ));
    
    $feed->enable_cache(true);
    $feed->set_cache_location('cache');
    $feed->set_cache_duration(15);
    
    $feed->init();
    
    $feed->handle_content_type();

    if ($feed->error): ?>
    
        <p><?php echo $feed->error; ?></p>
        
    <?php endif; ?>

    <?php foreach ($feed->get_items() as $item): ?>
    
    	<div class="chunk">
    
    		<h4 style="background:url(<?php $feed = $item->get_feed(); echo $feed->get_favicon(); ?>) no-repeat; text-indent: 25px; margin: 0 0 10px;"><a href="<?php echo $item->get_permalink(); ?>"><?php echo $item->get_title(); ?></a></h4>
    
    		<p class="footnote">Source: <a href="<?php $feed = $item->get_feed(); echo $feed->get_permalink(); ?>"><?php $feed = $item->get_feed(); echo $feed->get_title(); ?></a> | <?php echo $item->get_date('j M Y | g:i a T'); ?></p>
    		     
    	</div>
    
    <?php endforeach; 
    
?>

    I was playing around with this but it only loads the tweets the first time, then no further updates. I tried the workaround that SimplePie recommended, commenting out the lines of code, but it rendered the entire simplepie.inc file useless.

    Were you able to get this to work?

    Now SimplePie uses an autoloader.php instead of simplepie.inc.

    Any idea why $feed is being redefined inside the loop?
