I am having a problem with connecting a rssfeed viewer web part with a list of rssfeeds in using Sharepoint 2007.
Initially I created a List called "RSSFeedList" and added a URL column to store the RSS URL. Then I created a new view called "Select Feed" which only contained the URL.
After adding in the RSS URLs, I added a "RSSFeed Viewer" Web Part to a page and then also added the "RSSFeedList". The "RSSFeedList" then was set to use the view "Select Feed" in the webpart.
Using the connections option in the Edit drop down menu for the "RSS Feed Viewer", I was given the option to use the following four options: - Get Feed Parameter From - Get Feed URL From - Get Parameters From - Get Filter Values From
I used the "Get Feed URL From". Here I had the only option of using the "Select Feed" view which I choose and then I prompted with a Webpage Dialog box showing a dropdown menu for the URL column in "Select Feed". I choose the column and clicked finish.
After this was complete the "RSSFeedList" showed radio buttons. But, the "RSSFeed Viewer" stated the following in the Web Part. "Web part is not bound to a feed. Open the tool pane to set the feed Url." Even when I clicked on the radio buttons in the FeedList it would not change the Feed Viewer.
I have added a rss url to the "RSSFeed Viewer" but I want to be able to dynamically choose the rss url.
And this is a built-in Sharepoint 2007 webpart (out of the box)
I anyone can help me figure what I am doing wrong or if what I am looking to do is even possible. Thanks in advances!
