Hi,

http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex18/gajaxpausescroller.htm

These pages use 'gAjax RSS Ticker', and they work fine on IE, Firefox and Mozilla - but I can't get them to work on my Safari browser (on iMac).

http://www.greenhammer.110mb.com/rssBBC_News.html

Can you advise me please on how to get this ticker - or maybe another ticker would be better - to work ok in Safari?

PS 1:
Advanced RSS Ticker will not work on this site, (I believe) without dropping the 'fopen' etc functions, and changing to "curl functions".

PS 2:
One thing about my Mac is that the clock has the original date of about 1970, because the battery is flat. Could this be the problem?

PS 3:
These RSS news feeds work ok on my Mac from my paid site - but this site uses the 'Advanced RSS Ticker (Ajax Invocation) [which will not work from my 110mb site, see 'fopen' etc above]:

e.g.
http://greenhammer.com.au/rssCNN_News.html
or
http://greenhammer.com.au/rssBBC_News.html

Thanks & best wishes, PeterD.
PS
Just some info about my rss for weather:
Now fixed. Somehow I had given incorrect url at weather.com

Hi again,

Looks like I had incorrect link above, and looks like this is the correct link to the DD ticker I used (can confirm this in 'view source' on my quoted pages):

All the best, PeterD
