1) Script Title: Advanced RSS ticker (Ajax invocation)
2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamici...ajax/index.htm
3) Describe problem: I'm having the same problem as is seems multiple other users have reported without any resolution. (Environment - Hostgator cPanel shared hosting). I have downloaded the demo files and uploaded to a sub-directory /rss on the server. Double and triple checked that the paths and necessary values match as needed for my install location. The script is not executing to display the RSS feeds, and gets stuck at the point where a message reads in the RSS feed area "initializing script...". I have tried enabling & disabling cache value, made sure the cache directory has correct read/write permissions, checked PHP info, verified that server is capable of importing RSS via a small PHP file, and I'm flat out of ideas. It seems the solution is a simple one, but it eludes me. This is a very nice looking & handy script...would be great if someone out there has an idea what's causing this "initializing script..." issue. Can't figure out why it would work just fine on the demo link at DD and yet the downloadable demo files seem to be broken. Thanks for any help you guys have to offer on this.
Just noticed, in the rssticker.js file on line 6, I can change the lastrssbridgeurl="lastrss/bridge.php" to lastrssbridgeurl="foobar.php", and it doesn't make any difference...the output on demo.htm still shows "initializing script..." where the RSS feeds are supposed to appear. If I change it to lastrssbridgeurl="" then it does generate an error message saying "Error fetching remote RSS feed!". So it would appear that there is an issue with the script not communicating with the bridge.php file correctly.
