View Full Version : Pausing RSS Scroller and unexpected output

09-19-2006, 11:35 AM
1) Script Title: Pausing RSS Scroller

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

3) Describe problem: Thanks for any assistance you can give. I have installed the scripts properly and it works fine with feeds from "cnn" and the like. However, I would like to be able to allow a client to use a "feed editor" and upload to my server. This way they can change certain content items without messing around in the site. I found a freeware editor to use but the files it generates only display the topic and date... and I can confirm that my insertion script does have the "date+description" value set.

The URL of my site (in progress) is here: http://www.jacksonscarpet.com/

Ok, I assume the output of the editor I am using isn't formatted properly. You can view it here: http://www.jacksonscarpet.com/news/front_page.xml

Is there an easy fix... OR if you have a suggestion for a different editor, I would love to hear it. ( freeware would be nice :) ) Mainly, I need something simple for my client to use.

I Sincerely Appreciate Your Help,
Nick in Tennessee

Remove the <![CDATA[ at the front of the description and remove the ]]> at the end, See what that does.

That did the trick!

Thank you so much.... now, does anyone hav a suggestion on which RSS editor I could use? It doesn't matter if it is a stand alone application or an online version... just as long as it can upload the file to my webserver. Obviously the freeware one that I used to make this file doesn't format things the way it should for the "Pausing RSS Scroller" to deal with. With that said though, free would be nice :)

I used this one RSSeditor v0.9.54 (http://www.rss-info.com)
