can I import rss feeds to my website similar to how it's done with my lefora forum shown here? http://hobbiesaboutus.lefora.com/forum/
Nearly all of the "posts" are actually rss feeds.

Hi Thrundar,

This is how to add an RSS widget to your site:
1. Open the widgets folder on the sidebar to your right.
2. Drag and drop the "RSS feed" widget onto your page.
3. Click on "edit" on the green widget tool bar.
4. In the properties sidebar click on "edit your link"
5. A link editor will open up. You need to replace the default URL with a URL of a feed that you want.
For example, pasting the following URL will create a Yahoo! News RSS feed: http://rss.news.yahoo.com/rss/topstories
6. When you are done click "OK" in the link editor and then click "apply" in the properties side bar.

An RSS feed with automatically updated links on the subject of your choice will be added to your site.

Alternatively, you can easily add an RSS feed to your site with a widget from our Widgetbox Gallery, this is how:
1. Drag and drop a Widgetbox Gallery widget onto your page
2. A dialogue box will open, search for 'RSS' to see all the widgets available
3. Choose the RSS feed you would like to use on your site
4. Click on the Settings button (looks like a tool!) on the left to edit your settings
5. Click on the green 'Get Widget' button and it will be saved and added to your page
6. Save and preview your page to view the widget!

If you would like to create your own RSS manually - please click here to view a short tutorial -http://ide.synthasite.com/sites/Db5c/...

I don't think so, the essence of RSS is spreading content.

Instead of using a widget you can use a FREE parser

Yola, look !
Bncscripts has a suspicious behavior.

Bncscripts,
sorry, this kind of php scripts are hard to embed in Yola platform.
Also, getsatisfaction adds a no follow metatag so you can't increase your PR here.
