See: http://www.zope.org/Members/EIONET/RDFSummary This product is old but I don't think it needs any maintenance since it still does the simple but good job it was designed to do.
I have a different situation but you might want to implement this. This is with just Zope not Plone. All our news articles are in CoreBlog, you would use CoreBlog2 for Plone, unless I'm not mistaken SmartFolders has support for RSS included. CoreBlog has built in support for RSS feeds of articles. Using RDFSummary I run a nightly cron job, which now can be done with clock server, to call the update function in RDFSummary. The RDFSummary is set to grab the newest four entries with each update. I expect you would have to choose a different number of entries and then parse it or through some other method find the results of your search of the RSS results. Of course you would need to replace with proper syntax for Plone since my site is just Zope. rssnews_headlines is the id of my RDFSummary. <dtml-with rssnews_headlines> <div id="rss"> <dtml-in items mapping> <li><a href="<dtml-var link>" target="new"><dtml-var title></a></li> <br /> </dtml-in> </div> </dtml-with> Example from the RDFSummary Product page, dtml and then ZPT example. <dtml-with slashdot> <dtml-var "channel()['title']"> <dtml-var picture> <dtml-in items mapping> <p> <a href="<dtml-var link>"> <dtml-var title></a><br> <dtml-if "_.has_key('description')"> <dtml-var description> </dtml-if> </p> </dtml-in> </dtml-with> or if you prefer ZPT: <metal:block tal:condition="here/slashdot" tal:define="news here/slashdot"> <div tal:content="python:news.channel()['title']" /> <div tal:repeat="item news/items"> <a href="" tal:attributes="href item/link" tal:content="item/title" /> </div> <div> <a href="" tal:attributes="href python:news.channel()['link']">More ...</a> </div> </metal:block> Results may be seen on http://www.library.appstate.edu/ at the bottom center of the page under Library News:.
