It appears the RSS Feeds have differing discriptor for content, some use <description> others use <content:encoded> or just <content> in the xml feed. The RSS Scroller only reads <description>.

Where and how can the scripts be modified to read RRS feeds like VBulletin Board RSS feeds that have the following format? THANKS!

Hmmm such changes will need to be done inside LastRSS.php (http://lastrss.webdot.cz/) to get it to recognize non <description> elements, the parser all the RSS scripts on DD use to parse a RSS feed. You'll need to be familar with PHP unfortunately to do this.
