A disclaimer: this is my first experience with Sitefinity.
The company I'm working for contracts with another company to manage their career services. This company provides an RSS feed of the current job openings.
Unfortunately, this RSS doesn't include all the fields needed to implement the business logic required. So we'll have to host their page in an IFrame.
I'd like to ingest this feed, creating an entry for each item, extract the id from the url in the 'link' field and use that to generate the src attribute of the iframe. In Addition, each entry needs to disappear as it is removed from the source feed.
So, my question is, do I need to create a custom module or is this possible using the standard Feeds & Notifications scheme?
Edit: Perhaps better questions are: can I extend the list of modules that the Feeds & Notifications service binds to? Is this the best approach?
