View Full Version : gAjax RSS Ticker - google api error

09-24-2007, 09:27 PM
1) Script Title: gAjax RSS Ticker

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex18/gajaxrssticker.htm

3) Describe problem: usage of demo rss feeds work fine, but when used on a simple rss 2.0 file, an error is thrown by the google api that the feed could not be loaded. here is the lnk to the rss file: http://www.tvw.org/rss/TVWGenRssFeed.xml. (a key for http://www.tvw.org is used for the google api)

I've confirmed the problem with your RSS feed. Not quite sure yet why though. Two things you may want to try:

1) Clean up the warning message when running your feed through a validator: http://feedvalidator.org/

2) Try adding at least one more item to your RSS feed, so there's more than one item.

yeah i ran it through the validator to find it needed a guid. I added one and it was validated by the feedvaildator.org.
though the problem still persists with the scripts. funny thing is, if i use one of my podcast xml files formatted with itunes tags:, (which btw only has one element right now) it works fine. just the simple feeds do not work. kinda lost on this one...

any news on this??

I just tested http://www.tvw.org/rss/TVWGenRssFeed.xml with gAjaxTicker again, and it does work now. Actually, it may have worked all along, as you had specified one script (gAjax RSS Pausing Scroller) in your title while pointing to another (gAjax RSS Ticker) in the URL, so I ended up using two different codes together.
