View Full Version : Getting the Advanced RSS Ticker to display the most up-to-date feed

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

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/rsstickerajax/index.htm

3) Describe problem:

I've been using this script for awhile, but one thing that has rarely worked is to get the ticker to display our most recent news item in a timely fashion. We use Blogger and FeedBurner. I'm not able to set the timezone in FeedBurner. At one time, the script would work fine but the displayed timezone would be off one hour. Since Blogger has gone out of the new beta, the ticker will only update 4-5 hours after an item is posted on the blog. Is there anything I can change in the script (bridge.php, lastrss.php, rssticker.js) to offset the time so it will display our most recent posting? The script will not work at all with the Blogger rss/atom feed unless we use FeedBurner and use the atom feed and convert it to rss 2.0. I've also tried changing all references to <pubDate> to <published> with no success.

Thanks for any help or suggestions.
