I am working on basically a specialized RSS feed aggregator that is aimed toward blogs. Basically I am trying to make a universal friends page that works on any site with an rss feed. What I would like to do is retrieve at least the number of comments for each entry.

Is there anyway to do this? I am writing this whole thing with php/mysql.

Thanks

What I am trying to do is get the comments specifically. Livejournal (and the other blogs) don't sydicate the comments. So I'm trying to find a better way to get them that doesn't involve page scraping.

Unless the systems offer the comments in another way, you will have to either have the user visit the comments page itself or scrape the comments. What I might suggest is to open up an iframe with the comments page.

Generally I try to avoid frames, but in this case that might not be a bad idea. Thanks!
