1) Script Title: gAjax RSS Feeds Displayer

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

3) Describe problem: the page on Google at http://code.google.com/apis/ajaxfeeds/signup.html states that no API Key is needed.

What to do about it? Thank you.

You can continue using your key if you have one, or simply use none:


<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.google.com/jsapi">
</script>

Thanks for the heads up, I wasn't aware of this latest change in Google's TOS. This just simplifies the process (especially for novices), though as John notes, Google does state that the presence of a API key in the URL does not hinder access to it, so you can still have it in your code. I'll probably get around to updating the script page to take out the API key part.

Thanks to both of you. The old key works, and I wanted to implement the RSS Feed feature on our other website, - and that's what triggered the question. I'll let you know if jscheuer1's suggestion worked.

It does, I tried it. Probably better to use no key than an invalid one (the keys were generated per domain I believe), but even that might not matter now that Google has lifted the restriction.

Yes, it worked for me too. Thanks again! Irina
