I am not sure if I am posting in the correct forum so please excuse my blunder if I am.
I have an RSS Feed I would like to display on a website, I have a parser to do this however it only displays the text and not the images. Here is the parser I am using currently:
Free RSS Parser (http://www.site-reference.com/rss-parser.php)
Does anyone know of a different parser that has the cababilities to take and display images AND text?

Have you looked at Carp (http://www.geckotribe.com/rss/carp/) before?

I have checked it out before, but I personally at the time couldn't get it to work correctly :( was wondering if that was my only option or are their other's out there?
Thanks for the help though.

I am currently using CaRP here (http://www.orionsweb.net/blog-web-design.php), this is the free version and does not show images but I believe the (inexpensive) paid version allows for that option.
I got really frustrated initially with it but once I calmed down and actually followed the directions step by step BANG! It was up and running and only took about 15mins. lol... Ya, I know, I should read directions first....
I actually posted about it lol.. OH WATCH THE VIDEO ON THE SITE. that's the instructions I followed that worked.
Good luck and let me know if you find anything else out there. I'd love something (free) that could do a bit more.

Orion is correct it was frustrating at first for me a couple of years ago when I set it up, but still works like a charm today.

The basic RSS definitions does not allow any HTML tags in your <description> field.
However, you can use the link of actual HTML page or use application specified tags to get the HTML tags passed on as [CDATA]. Application specified tags means that particular RSS feed reader should be used to show those.
