WeGotTickets Feed formats


RSS 2.0 format

RSS is a standardised XML format for publishing frequently changing information. It can be 'read' or 'consumed' with a feed reader or aggregator, many of which are available.
There are also many plugins and scripts available on the web that allow RSS to be integrated with websites.
If your website is run on one of the popular Content Management Systems such as Joomla or WordPress, a plugin will be the way to go for integration. If you have a custom built website your developers will be able to advise you.

Below is an example of our RSS format.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<rss xmlns:php="http://php.net/xsl" version="2.0">

Custom XML format

Our custom XML format contains a bit more information that the RSS and it is divided into more fields making it suitable for integration into a website by means of a purpose built script.

Below is an example of our custom XML format.
