    If you cut/paste the bit in red that I posted into the adv_portal_rss template it will add a scrollbar. From there you can begin to modify things to try it out.

    It did everyting nicely but it still will not scroll automatically

    This is the code I have
    Code:
    <div style="height: 300px; overflow:auto;">
          <table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="5"><tr><td>
    <table align="center" border="0" cellpadding="$stylevar[cellpadding]" cellspacing="$stylevar[cellspacing]" class="tborder" width="100%">
        <tr>
            <td class="tcat">
              <span class="smallfont"><strong>$vba_options[portal_blockbullet] <a href="$rss_channel[LINK]">$rss_channel[TITLE]</a></strong>
              </span>
            </td>
        </tr>
    $rssbits
    <if condition="$rss_channel[COPYRIGHT]">
        <tr>
            <td class="tfoot" align="center">
                <span class="smallfont"><a href="$rss_channel[LINK]">$rss_channel[COPYRIGHT]</a></span>
            </td>
        </tr>
    </if>
    </table>
     </td>
    </tr>
    </table>
        </div>

    The <div> needs to be like I showed in my example as you only want the bit inside the module (the actual feed data) to scroll.

    An updated version of this module has been placed in the first post.

    1/4/2006
    1. Added support for having the feed area scrollable. This adds two new options to the module and also contains a revised adv_portal_rss template.

    If you don't require scrollable support there's no need to download this update.

    You *may* need to uninstall all earlier versions and manually delete some table entries to get the update to work properly. I'm still waiting to hear back if Brian has been able to reproduce the problem I've seen.

    In the meantime, I'll be happy to take a look at things for you if you'd like. PM me if you'd like help in doing this.

    I just added this modules, but nothing happens.
    No error message, nothing.

    I last used lastRSS with fsockopen - fopen doesn' t work at my server.

    Could this be the problem?

    What is the url of the feed you are trying to use?

    Is the module marked as Active?

    If the fopen() failed you should get an error message.

    The layout of that feed doesn't match what the applications is looking for and so the content gets bypassed.

    The app is looking for a format like

    Code:
    <content>
    <items>
      <item>
         item related stuff
      </item>
      <item>
        next item related stuff
      </item>
    </items>
    </channel>
    You could probably modifiy the php file to process the format that being looked at w/o too much trouble and save it as a different version.

    If you examine the feed you'll see that it also doesn't meet the requirements.

    You can read about file formats here and here.

    Basically, the application supports the RSS 2.* branch and not the RSS 1.* formats.

    I just did a new install of vb3.5 along with cmps2.0. Everything installs fine, but I can't get anything on the frontpage. I am using the following URLs from your recommendation: My directory is chmod to 777. Any ideas?

    Not much to go on here. The first link points to a web page that says the site is no longer supported and the 2nd one comes up fine for me.

    Have you made sure that the module is marked as Active and that it's selected on the page you are using?

    Tom,

    Thanks for the reply. I have checked that the module is listed as active, and have even chmod' my directories to 777.

    Here are my specs:

    /home/affna/org/html/rsscache
    All active boxes are checked

    I've even tried uninstalling/reinstalling the module. Anymore ideas? Thanks again for your help/hardwork.

    Val
