I have created a RSS Feed the other day off of Feedburner.com, and they create this graphic which looks like the following for our feeds
[img src=\"http://feeds.feedburner.com/aaanwohio.gif\" border=\"0\" alt=\"IPB Image\" /]
Now these get dynamically updated from our XML Feed in our Newsroom.
My Question - How do they do it?
I wish to create something like this for our company so we can dynamically change the graphic in our employees email signatures - so we can give out Coupons, Specials, Announcements, and etc.
Sure I could make feeds for each and everyone of em' but that's not what I want, I don't want that graphic, i want to be able to create my own template graphic.
The only idea I have is to create a Signature for the employees to read like the following
<a href="http://mywebsite.com/emailsig.php"><img src="http://linktoimageonyoursite/image.gif"></a>
I add that code, change the image whenever I wish - and everone's image changes along with it. But I don't beleive that's what Feedburner.com is doing.
And I feel that isn't dynamic enough - I like to do a project, and be done with it. Not constantly do tedious work. (I don't think I'm alone on this - lol)
I think they might be having a cron job, or something similar. I had a feed update yesterday, it took Feedburner 1/2 hour to update everything, on their site, and in my email signatures.
I have found one site which is a possiblity how they do it.

So I ask you - if you have an idea how to get this to work, please let us all know.
