    Default gfeedfetcher Loads 2 feeds but not one by itself

    1) Script Title: gfeedfetcher

    2) Script URL (on DD):

    3) Describe problem:

    I have two feeds, Comptroller News and Announcements. Some articles from the first feed are sent to the second as well. That means if I display them both, I get some duplicate items.

    If I display only "Comptroller News" I see all the items and no duplicates.

    So one would expect that if I displayed only the subset (the Announcments feed) I would get only that one feed.
    But instead I get the "Feed Loading" message forever.

    I added an MSNBC feed, took out the Comptroller News Feed and added the Announcements feed and Announcements comes up.

    I'm at a loss.


    <script type="text/javascript">
    var newsfeed=new gfeedfetcher("feed", "news")
    newsfeed.addFeed("Comptroller News", "") //Specify "label" plus URL to RSS feed
    newsfeed.addFeed("Announcements", "") //Specify "label" plus URL to RSS feed
    newsfeed.setentrycontainer("li") //Display each entry as a list item
    newsfeed.filterfeed(8, "label") //Show 8 entries, sort by label
    newsfeed.init() //Always call this last

    It's apparently a bug in the script. If you set the number of items to retrieve higher than the actual number of items available, it causes an error. I happen to have a slightly different version and it works even with that, so why don't you try it (right click and save as):
