Both pages are on the same domain. I was thinking I could have the first page load quickly, or hidden, then pull the info and pass the info to a second page. But <iframe> might make more sense - if it's possible with the cms program my client is using (Squarespace).
Basically I'm building a page that's pulling rss feeds from individual pages on the same domain (built that way due to a limitation of the cms software the client is using) I want to detect the most recent post for each category, and pull the thumbnail picture to appear here, as the layout suggests: http://www.frontdoorsnews.com/-4/
An example of the pages I want to pull the pic url from
is here: http://frontdoorsnews.squarespace.com/from_the_heart/
On this page, a specific div tag (div id="item12616108") matches the category. I could rebuild it to have divs for all the categories.
Inside that div is another div class called "journal-entry-float-day". I can change that to include hour and minute, so it can be used to find the most recent post.
Hope I'm on the right path!
