1) Script Title: Advanced RSS Ticker (Ajax invocation)

2) Script URL (on DD):

3) Describe problem:

Hi, the RSS ticker is showing

"Error fetching remote RSS feed!
Sorry: It's not possible to reach RSS file http://rss.cnn.com/rss/cnn_topstories.rss "

It does not work for any RSS feed

I simply downloaded the example and without making any changes uploaded it to my website. The demo.html page along with the necessary scripts in the proper folders are now hosted on my domain. Please take a look

I am using GoDaddy as my host. Please tell me if there is any setting that needs to be changed as I did not touch the code, I guess there is something wrong with the settings perhaps. Thanks.

Do you have the /cache directory set to 777 as explained in the DD script page? If so, are there any files in it? My suspicion is that GoDaddy's servers do not allow you to fetch external files using PHP or Curl, which would mean you can't use this script unfortunately.

The good news is, in the next few weeks, I'll be adding a few RSS related scripts that do not require you to install anything on your server to be able to use them. The first one is already up (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex18/gajaxrssdisplayer.htm); expect a ticker and scroller to be added soon as well.
