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

3) Describe problem:

Hi there,

I have been trying to use the pausing rss scroller on my site with some success, however I have stumbled across a problem. As I'm new to webdesign please forgive me if I'm being stupid and it's something simple.

Having set up as described on the DD site everything seemed to work until I wanted the scroller on a page that was in a subfolder of the site.

The php script is located in the folder php/lastrss/scrollerbridge.php

The javascript is /javascript/rsspausescroller.js

My Page is in /newsletter/jan2007/jan2007.html

Unfortunately I don't have a url I can give you just yet as I'm only testing locally using MAMP to get the php to work as the testing server it is currently hosted on doesn't have php yet...

Any thoughts??

The most important thing is to make the path to scrollerbridge.php inside the .js file is correct. So this line:

var bridgepath="http://localhost/mysite/lastrss/scrollerbridge.php"

Try using an absolute URL to the php file as I've done above.
