    To answer your questions:

    1) Not with this script unfortunately, which can only show one feed at a time. You can check out gAjax RSS scroller for such an ability instead.

    2) Sure, just find this line in the .js file:

    Code:
    setTimeout(function(){scrollerinstance.animateup()}, 50)
    and increase 50 to a larger number, such as 100 or 150

    3) You can edit this line within the script, by adding to it the line in red:

    Code:
    var description='<div class="rssdescription">'+unescape(rsscontent.description)+'</div>'
    description=description.substring(0, 100)
    100 in this case would mean return the first 100 characters of the description.

    Was there something wrong with the changes I had posted above? If so please let me know what, just for the sake of other members that may be having the same problem.

    This is really a function of LastRSS, the PHP parser used by the script. It simply returns all the items within your feed I believe.

    Sorry to get back so late....
    Nothing wrong with what you wrote, I just typed it in wrong while editing.

    Well, I would love to be able to set the no. of items. Well this scroller just may be too limiting for me. I may have to try out the rss box or something like that when I have time.
    Cheers
