Hi, some help needed here please,

I've installed this script and all works fine except that the only information it shows is the heading and date.. the rss feed contains a list of monthly racing times for an online club, and thats the information i need to show on the web page. I've looked over the script and I can't work out where, if any where I need to edit it to make sure I get all the information from the feed.
Thanks
Rowan

p.s. the link to the page ...if its any help is: http://www.therebuggylegends.com/scrolltest.htm

What's the URL to the actual RSS feed you're trying to display? On the surface it seems the script is getting the descriptions: http://www.therebuggylegends.com/lastrss/scrollerbridge.php?id=dynamicdrive Notice the "description" field within each array.

I have now tested this page on a few more browsers, In I.E. it does in fact get the content as well as the title, although it scrunches it all up to one side, I've been looking for the code to change this but , well, I'm still looking. In firefox the positioning of the information is perfect, but it only displays the title. Opera: positioniong perfect, shows title and content ...but also all the html tags, making it unusable.

conclusion is that the script does not work for these browsers dispite decaring it on the web site.

As a web designer cross browser compatability is important to me, So unless anyone has a hack to make it work on all of them I will have to shelve the idea.

Thanks
Rowan

Does this problem occur for you on the DD demo page as well? That's why I asked for the URL to your XML file, as it could be something specific to your feed.

The rss feed url is http://webapps.prod.there.com/dynamic/activities/buggy_rss.xml

And you are right I checked out the demo on the other browsers and it works fine. Not sure where I go from here now.
