RSS Feed Error
« on: May 28, 2015, 05:41:53 AM »
I created a RSS feed in Magic Info Pro.

When I preview the screen, there is an error 'This RSS feed does not have any data'.

The following is the RSS feed.
https://www.google.com/calendar/feeds/sji-international.com.sg_rfumarqctc0hli2raicdi6pudc%40group.calendar.google.com/public/basic

How can I get it to work?

Hi

RSS feeds in Magicinfo only work with xml links

you need to access the settings on your google calander and select xml
the rss feed should then end with .xml

http://news.sky.com/feeds/rss/world.xml


this may help

Let me know how you get on.

Thanks

I am using Public calendar.

When I choose XML, it doesn't give me a link that ends with xml.

are you seeing this option in the calander?

In the Calendar Address section, click the XML or HTML button. A pop-up window with your calendar's public URL will appear

Hi

Have looked into this further and doesn't seem like it is possible.
You could use the embedded code and create a Iframe into HTML and have this appearing on the screen this looks pretty clean cut as well.
beyond this if your determined you would need to look at PHP coding and Iparse to extract the data you need.

Cheers
Ewan
