RSS Feed Showing only Title and No Content
« on: March 04, 2010, 07:26:40 PM »
I was setting up Magicinfo Pro to use a RSS feed but It only shows the title,  ie Current Temp,  but it will not show the Current temp,    But on the weather RSS feed if i put it in internet explorer it does show the current temp,   Just not within magicinfo Pro.   Is there a Step I am missing on this??   This is the same for News RSS,  it will only show the Title.

No there is anything else that you can do, I am afraid. Maybe the best way to do this, is to create your own web site with the appropriate URL that does this and then schedule the URL.

So the RSS feed in magicinfo pro is useless?  I did look at some of your previous answers Bill and I have been trying to get it to work right from a URL im just trying to get the settings corect for the view on the screen.

We use this and it works flawlessly-hosted on our server we convert the RSS feed to normal text on a web-page for showing in Magicinfo-pro-highly recommended!  ;D

thank you for the reply on that,   So when you post it on your web page, You just put the web url into Magicinfo pro screen and set it up to only show the RSS feed of the Webpage?

Well, almost, the feed2js php script converts the rss feed into a javascript snippet that you insert into a web page of your own design that you host on a server.

When the web page is viewed in a browser (ultimately the one incorporated in magicinfo pro) the rss feed will now be displayed as if it is normal html text.

You then link to the web page you have created on your server from your magicinfo pro design and size the viewable web space in the design to your needs.

Once the magicinfo pro screen is published you will in effect have an rss feed updating as often as you like but in the exact format that you want it to display.

(You can also download and host the script on your own server if you have php but it's not a requirement as you can use a free third party host.)

To conclude, it gives you the control over the display and format/content of the feed that is simply not available in magicinfo pro  ;D

I hope the explanation helps..  :-\

Instead of creating a new thread...thought i'd bump this one...

Until last week, our RSS feeds were working...As well as something else we pull from our own website...come to today and non of the RSS feeds are working?

Is there anything standard to try other than re-inserting all of them again? Its weird, as nothing has changed our end so I can tell...?
