We are starting to use WordPress as a Help Center / Instructional
content management system. The idea is to syndicate contextual help to
a variety of sites and apps based on categories and tags (i.e., search,
facets, registration, policies, etc.). This makes it easy for
instructional librarians and other staff to easily update the content
without having to depend on a programmer to update it.
I am using PHP's libxslt library to transform the feed and pull it into
whatever site needs to use it, but I've noticed a slight lag. SimplePie
and it's caching features look like a possible solution for this. Thanks!
However, archiving these feeds is another question entirely... perhaps
the SimplePie caching mechanism could be extended to save feeds to a
persistent data store? Or is there web archiving software that could do
