Another RSS Feed Question
« on: November 23, 2009, 09:44:03 PM »
I want the last 3 or 4 messages from an RSS feed to cycle through on a display.

Is there a way to do this?

Thanks,

-Brian

Brian,

RSS is very simple in MagicInfo. Unfortunately it will start at the beginning of the feed and start over at the end of the feed. If you are any good at scripts you could maybe write a java script to do this and run it in a web area.

Good Luck
Ron

Hello, I have used this free script a number of times in installations-you can download the parser and place it on your own server-it allows you to do all kinds of things magicinfo pro doesn't with RSS feeds-just make your own page on your server to create the finished html document then link to it via a web area in the magicinfo pro designer.
