View Full Version : Advanced RSS Ticker (Ajax invocation)

09-28-2006, 03:23 AM
1) Script Title: Advanced RSS Ticker (Ajax invocation)

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

3) Describe Problem: I've installed the scripts and demo and have them working on my web server. I've created an rss feed and can subscribe to using newsgator. However, I cannot get the ticker to display the information from my feed.

Other Info

Demo locations:

All scripts, htm, and xml files on same level of directory (cache chmodded 777, one level below)

code from demo: <script src="rssticker.js" type="text/javascript">

code from demo3: <script src="rssticker.js" type="text/javascript">


document.write("CWA News:")
new rssticker_ajax("CWA", 1200, "cnnbox", "cnnclass", 5000, "Title+date+description")

code from jsticker.js:

//Relative URL syntax:
var lastrssbridgeurl="bridge.php"

code from bridge.php"

// List of RSS URLs
"CWA" => "rss.xml",
"CNN" => "http://rss.cnn.com/rss/cnn_topstories.rss",
"BBC" => "http://newsrss.bbc.co.uk/rss/newsonline_uk_edition/front_page/rss.xml",
"news.com" => "http://news.com.com/2547-1_3-0-5.xml",
"slashdot" => "http://rss.slashdot.org/Slashdot/slashdot",
"dynamicdrive" => "http://www.dynamicdrive.com/export.php?type=new"

I suspect the problem is with how I've defined the path to my rss feed. Any help will be appreciated.

Thank you...

Well, demo.htm works for me, while demo3.htm does not.

The problem with the later appears to be that your own RSS feed (rss.xml) is not valid: http://www.climbingwallindustry.org/rss/bridge.php?id=CWA Take a look at the <link> tags- they're empty and missing the opening tags.
