1) Script Title:
Pausing RSS scroller

2) Script URL (on DD):

3) Describe problem:
Sorry: It's not possible to reach RSS file http://rss.pcworld.com/rss/syndication2.rss?feedid=1159
I give up trying to fetch RSS feed.

I'm hosted by godaddy
the URL to the ticker: http://www.stevenmaynard.com/index1.html

it's a windows server and Filezilla warned me the chmod settings may not take if it's not unix.

the cache directory is empty.

I've read a few other posts about this and I just wanted to make sure I've set it up correctly.

Fixed it.

Moved over to linux (supporting php) instead of windows server. Just having a weirdness with one of my feeds not displaying text other than the title of each headline.

I looked over the demo.html code and realized there are separate display settings for each of the pscrollers.. I have adjusted those settings and now both scrollers work fine. Thanks a bunch for the utility.

Here's hoping it adds some integrity to my website / business

I'm completely new at web development and I guess I just needed to spend some time working things out.

The folks at godaddy told me to move to linux to get this to work. I'm only paying for the economy hosting (linux w/ php) at three something a month. not so much an add for them as it is info for anyone having similar troubles.

Thanks again for code!!
