Rss feeds generally require that you UPLOAD a reader to your server and link to the reader to display other xml feeds as content on your site. An easy way around this is to use a javascript and a free service. Im sure there are others out there.. but this one works nicely and is hosted at an edu site

Java Script Rss Feed Converter. (http://feed2js.edna.edu.au/feed2js/index.php?src=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.webpronews.com%2Fin dex.xml&chan=y&num=1&desc=1&desc_text=&html=n&date=y&targ=y&targ_text=&pc=n&rss_box_id=&generate=Generate+Code)

Type in a few basic lines of information and location of the desired xml feed, how many posts you want to display.. titles etc you want it to pick up and you can both preview it and make changes and then generate the code to paste into an HTML box on BV sites. It also will work in any html coding on any other site builder as well.

Heres what Im trying to do, spiders dont read html, but they can read php being it's a rss news coming into my site I want the spiders to visit that page, the custom feed boxes I have come in php I dont want to convert them to html thus they wont be read by the search engines. I want to keep them in the php and just add the code where I want it to show.

spiders DO read html.. they dont read javascript and flash.

Try changing your page properties to php.
