1) Script Title: RSS SAG Content Scroller

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex2/sagscroller_suppliment.htm

3) Describe problem:

I would like to display the RSS links in SAG Content Scroller within another jquery plugin I am currently using called Colorbox. (http://colorpowered.com/colorbox/)

The reason is because I don't want the user to navigate off my page. I am running this page on a large LCD TV in "kiosk mode" on a public computer.

The code in SAG Content Scroller has an option to set the Linktarget to _blank or _new, etc. I think this would be the place to queue Colorbox to popup the link...not sure though. Colorbox does support iFrame and inline content. I am able to popup html content using Colorbox on other pages I have developed. Granted it's not the prettiest option to display a web page but I like the fact that it pops up over my page and restricts the user from navigating away.

Any help would be greatly appreciated or if anyone knows a way to keep the user from gaining access to the internet via RSS links, that would help too.
