    Default Would someone be able to

    Redo somewhat the "RSS Display Boxes" script to update it and add more options including making the feed scroll from right to left ?

    I would be willing to pay a fee for someone to do this if it is not too expensive-lol

    post here or email me for more on what I am looking for.

    This could lead to some other work along the same type(rss feeds)

    this time the posts increased by one but the last time I posted it did not.......

    It's just something I made up on request last Nov-Dec. Here's everything you need (right click and 'Save As'):

    rsscrawler.zip

    Unzip it to an empty folder. It's ready to go. If you look at the files, it's a lot like the other RSS scripts. You may or may not need help configuring it. Let me know.

    For information on configuration, etc. see:

    http://www.dynamicdrive.com/forums/s...908-RSS-Ticker

    Around post number 10 I start to explain the usage. Don't use the archive from that thread though, I've since made some minor improvements. That's (the improved one) the version I've attached to this post.

    Hi John,I want to show just the story headlines,no date,description or any other info.
    Do I need to make that adjustment here?
    Code:
    function outputRSS_JS($url, $divid) {
        global $rss;
        $data = $rss->data;
        $items = $data['items'];
        if (count($items) > 0){	    
                foreach ($items as $item) {
    				$rssdata[] = "{link:'" . slashit(html_entity_decode ($item->get_permalink()), $charset = 'UTF-8') . "', title:'" . slashit($item->get_title()) . "', description:'" . slashit($item->get_description()) . "', date:'" . slashit($item->get_date($rss->date_format)) . "'}";
                }
    		echo "rsscrawler.rsscontent.$divid = [\n\t" . implode($rssdata, ",\n\t") . "\n];\n";
        }
        else if (count($items) <= 0) { echo "rsscrawler.rsscontent.$divid=\"Sorry, no items found in the RSS file\""; }
        else {
            echo "rsscrawler.rsscontent.$divid=\"Sorry: It's not possible to reach RSS file $url\"";
            // All else fails
        }
    }
    Which is in the simple_bridge.php file.
    Thanks,

    Bud

    No real need to get under the hood so much as the entire feed will be fetched regardless of what use you make of it. So you may as well just use css. Add this to the head of the page after the styles for the rsscrawler:

    Code:
    <style type="text/css">
    .rssdate, .rssdescription {display: none;}
    </style>
    Or add it's rule at the end of the existing stylesheet. You will of course want to make other adjustments to the styles at that point in order to format what remains.

    I'd suggest getting rid of the red and adding the green:

    Code:
    .rsstable td {
    	padding: 5px;
    	padding-top: 12px;
    	margin: 5px;
    	vertical-align: top;
    	background-color: bisque;
    	font: normal 13px verdana, arial, sans-serif;
    	white-space: normal;
    	border-right: 2px solid #fff;
    }
    
    .rsstable div {
    	width: 700px;
    	height: 25px;
    	font-size: 13px;
    	overflow: hidden;
    }
    That way, each item should fill as much or as little horizontal space as it needs and be centered vertically.

    Oh, and here, I'd lose the width:

    Code:
    .marquee {
    	height: 24px;border:1px solid red;width:500px;
    }
    So that it can fill the same space as the scrolling feed will.

    And for IE 7, add the highlighted:

    Code:
    .rsstitle {
    	font-weight: bold;
    	white-space: nowrap;
    }
