    Question RSS Ticker failure on IE

    1) Script Title: Advanced RSS Ticker

    2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamici...rsstickerajax/

    3) Describe problem:

    I have this working perfectly in Firefox, however when I try to use IE7 I get;
    Error fetching remote RSS feed!

    Looking at the code it indicates that it can't see an "item" tag in the feed. Now I've printed the XML it 'does' get, and there is an "item" tag there .. so I'm totally confused as to how this can possibly be ... it's as though the XML parser in Firefox works and the one in IE doesn't ?!

    Anyone any ideas?

    I shrunk the feed for proof of problem, here's what I'm using as a test;

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
    <rss version="2.0">
    <channel>
    <item>
    <title>Title</title>
    <link>Test</link>
    <description>Desc</description>
    <pubDate>Today</pubDate>
    </item>
    </channel>
    </rss>

    Hmm please post a link to the page on your site that contains the problematic script so we can check it out.

    There may be other issues, but the following line of the script is incorrect as you have it now on your site:

    Code:
    var lastrssbridgeurl="/portlets/latest_jobs_xml"
    It should point to bridge.php as it is uploaded on your server.

    Default Yes, but seriously ...

    You can see the fact that the script is there at the correct location and delivers a valid feed... and you can see it works on Firefox ... you're not seriously telling me that the name of the script is an issue ??
