Erroneous code. Removed. See below for correct changes.

Ah yes, forget what I said above, the substring() function should be called on earlier, before the entire HTML is returned already. So something like:


var linktitle='<div class="rsstitle"><a href="'+this.link[this.pointer]+'">'+this.title[this.pointer].substring(0, 20)+'</a></div>'
var description='<div class="rssdescription">'+this.description[this.pointer].substring(0, 100)+'</div>'

Limiting the number of feeds that get returned, among other things, is controlled by LastRSS. Inside bridge.php, try adding the below line in red:


$rss->date_format = 'M d, Y g:i:s A'; //date format of RSS item. See PHP date() function for possible input.
$rss->items_limit = 5 ; //return 5 items only
