.xml rss feed RRS feed

  • Question

  • Just a small question,

     

    I tried playing around with RSS feed block to modify it to show the RSS feed of our community site but for some reason it does not work, it will not take the .xml rss feed. Works great in plain normal IE7. Any suggestions or is this not possible yet ?

  • What kind of authentication does your site use? And would not being authenticate result in a feed with no items or would it result in an access denied error?

     

    You can use your riped block to use HTTP Auth, but depending on your site that may not help.

  • Just looking at it now and it would seem that getChanel works but as there are no <item> in the feed getItems doesn't return anything.

  • What URL are you passing to the block? And could you share the mashup your creating with the block that doesn't work?

     

    Thanks!

  • The block seems to be ok, the RSS feed at that URL contains no items.

     

    In a mashup if you pass the block a URL http://blogs.msdn.com/MainFeed.aspx?Type=AllBlogs the RSS feed is parsed fine.

     

    How do you want to use the block in a mashup?

  • I agree I think it is a problem with your feed not your Block.  I ripped the RSS block to read a static XML data file with my own attributes and it works well.

  • when i read my rss feed it is fine i can see everything however you need to be a member in order to read the RSS could that be the problem that it cant send the feed through or something like that ?
