    Ive never looked at curl, but i would assume it uses some sort of regex type string to search for its information.

    It isnt _that_ hard, but youll need to use CURL (curl functions should be available in php). Scott used this for subscriptions, though i think that got changed because not every server supported it.
    Well, you could read the whole contents of their page and use a regEx to grab all of the data. That'd be slower though, I believe.

    Quoting something from another site using php ?

    Can I quote something from another site using php ?

    like vB's quote code, but different.
    I want to quote a certain site on the main site, and on the extra box I have on my forums.

    how do I do this ?

    the site I want to quote is: http://www.billboard.com/bb/charts/latin50.jsp
