Nothing shows up when I try it or I get an error that file_get_contents doesn’t exist
This script relies on the function file_get_contents to fetch the RSS feed. If your host doesn’t allow the use of it, but allows the use of curl, you can replace
$stories = file_get_contents($uri);
$ch = curl_init(); $timeout = 5; // set to zero for no timeout curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $uri); curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1); curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT, $timeout); $stories = curl_exec($ch); curl_close($ch);
What does cache time mean?
It’s the number of seconds before the content will be requested again. You can set this to be 0 or -1 to not use the caching system. If you edit any of the widgets in the widget admin panel, the cache is cleared.
