View Full Version : Rss pause scroller and vBulletin

07-24-2006, 11:22 PM
1) Script Title: Rss Pause Scroller

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/rsspausescroller/index.htm

3) Describe problem: The script can't fetch some RSS, for example the one coming from the esternal.php page from vbulletin.

I give you some example, may be there is some way to solve it.

Not working : http://www.bodyweb.it/forums/external.php?type=rss2&forumids=68

Working : http://www.bodyweb.it/feed/feed_bodyweb.xml

What's the error you get when you try to directly call the RSS feed using:


where "vbulletin" is the array element inside scrollerbridge.php containing the URL to vBulletin's feed (ie: http://www.bodyweb.it/forums/external.php?type=rss&forumids=9)?

Most problems associated with this script being able to fetch the XML feed of one source and not the other has to do with LastRSS.php in fact. This RSS parser is a little more limiting than, say, MagpieRSS (http://magpierss.sourceforge.net/).

It seems no error as you told me, I'll show you where I'm testing : http://www.fastenergy.it/lastrss/scrollerbridge.php?id=allenamento

Possible ids : allenamento , integratori , cnn

ID "generico" works, with others is just showed the date, that's all :confused:

I set right now the "allenamento" ID so that you can see what I'm talking about.

Original site : www.fastenergy.it

Mhh.... I just saw that the only difference from :

this : http://www.fastenergy.it/lastrss/scrollerbridge.php?id=generico

to this : http://www.fastenergy.it/lastrss/scrollerbridge.php?id=allenamento

is just this prefix in front of each piece of data : "%3C%21%5BCDATA%5B"

Is it possible to correct in some way ? :)
If you want I can help.

I'm not too good with encoding, but I believe the problem might be that the RSS feed as referenced by http://www.fastenergy.it/lastrss/scrollerbridge.php?id=allenamento is double encoded, creating the problem. What's the URL to the actual RSS feed that http://www.fastenergy.it/lastrss/scrollerbridge.php?id=allenamento references?

This is the URL : http://www.bodyweb.it/forums/external.php?type=rss2&forumids=12 that refers to "allenamento" id

I'm trying to clean the output with str_replace function, any idea ?
This can be useful for other people who uses vBulletin.
