    Default Pausing RSS scroller not finding feed

    1) Script Title: Pausing RSS Scroller

    2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamici...ller/index.htm

    3) Describe problem: I keep getting the following error: "Error: Can't find requested RSS in list. I give up trying to fetch RSS feed."

    Ideally, there should be three feeds that come into one window. Reading your support forums, I believe I have included all of the relevant js and php files with the correct paths, but then again.... Clearly, I'm doing something wrong.

    Here is the hidden page:

    Thank you. Sandrine

    The IDs of the RSS feeds you've entered into the script's initialization code is incorrect, for example:

    Code:
    new rsspausescroller("cnn", "pscroller1", "rssclass", 3000, "_new")
    The ID in this case is "cnn", but looking up the corresponding feed directly returns an error:

    http://www.jvp-boston.org/lastrss/sc...dge.php?id=cnn

    Inside scrollerbridge.php, check the IDs you've defined again for each of your feeds, and use them inside the script's initialization code to properly reference them.

    Thanks for looking; was out of town and unable to respond till now.

    Question: Do the names of the RSSids need to be in all lower case?

    In the case of rsspausescroller1, I have matched the names in all lower case and it still doesn't work.

    $rsslist=array(
    "theonlydemocracy" => "feed://theonlydemocracy.org/feed/",

    and on the html page:

    new rsspausescroller("theonlydemocracy", "pscroller1", "rssclass", 3000, "_new")


    GOING CRAZY with this. ANy help would be appreciated.

    Hmm if I try and request the RSS feed with id "theonlydemocracy" now, ie:

    http://www.jvp-boston.org/lastrss/sc...eonlydemocracy

    I get the error "It's not possible to reach RSS file feed://theonlydemocracy.org/feed/". It's possible the URL method you're using to point to it isn't supported by the RSS parser of the script for whatever reason. Instead of:

    Code:
    $rsslist=array(
    "theonlydemocracy" => "feed://theonlydemocracy.org/feed/",
    What if you changed it to:

    Code:
    $rsslist=array(
    "theonlydemocracy" => "http://theonlydemocracy.org/feed/",

    Default Rebuilt

    I have rebuilt it here, clumsily. Thanks for all your help.

    Two burning questions now arise.

    1. Can one integrate several feeds into one scroller window?

    2. In pausescroller #2, how does one keep the title and para body separated? How to better fit scrolling text in window?

    Thank you so much.
