After further reading I've realized that the
$items = array_slice($rss->items, 0, 5);
Doesn't seem to be included in the part where I was trying to put it before.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have NO idea where I put the code to display only five items. The tutorial doesn't say where exactly the code goes, the cookbook for MagpieRSS doesn't make it clear either.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated
Forgive my unfamiliarity as this is one of my first times attempting something like this and I'm about to give up.
