1) Script Title: Pausing RSS scroller

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

3) Describe problem:
I have installed the components of the script on my site, but I only ever get the following message in the scrolling window:

Sorry: It's not possible to reach RSS file http://news.com.com/2547-1_3-0-5.xml (or whichever url I pass)
I give up trying to fetch RSS feed.

Is it possible to pass url's to xml files? The two I'm trying to use are:
http://www.ecb.co.uk/live-scores.xml
and
http://www.himleycc.co.uk/rss.xml

The cache directory is getting populated with files but all contain
b:0;

Please help!

I may have answered my own question. The LastRSS script uses fopen to open the RSS file. This appears to rely on allow_url_fopen to be enabled in php.ini, which it isn't on my host.:(

I've raised a ticket with my hosting service to see if I can change this setting.

I'll keep you posted
