Feedzilla RSS Widget Problem

Post by Flip on December 14th 2011, 5:05 am

Hi, I'm new at this...I'm trying to copy the code from my feedzilla RSS widget into the space that says HTML or Widget Source, in "Forum Widgets Management > "General Options of Widget".

Here's what the whole thing looks like:

<!-- Feedzilla Widget BEGIN -->

<div class="feedzilla-news-widget feedzilla-2874103634828158" style="width:250px; padding: 0; text-align: center; font-size: 11px; border: 0;">
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://widgets.feedzilla.com/news/iframe/js/widget.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
new FEEDZILLA.Widget({
style: 'slide-left-to-right',
culture_code: 'en_us',
c: '27',
sc: '1378',
headerBackgroundColor: '#175199',
footerBackgroundColor: '#175199',
title: 'Sports',
caption: 'Basketball - Nba - Detroit Pistons',
order: 'date',
count: '20',
w: '250',
h: '300',
timestamp: 'true',
scrollbar: 'false',
theme: 'ui-lightness',
className: 'feedzilla-2874103634828158'
});
</script><br />
<a href="http://widgets.feedzilla.com/news/builder/index.html?utm_source=feedzilla&utm_medium=widget&utm_campaign=widget%2Blink" target="_blank">Get Your News Widget</a>
</div>

<!-- Feedzilla Widget END -->

Do I copy EVERYTHING or what part of it do I copy/paste?

Because when I paste the whole thing and save, all the source code shows up in forum, instead of the rss feed. What am I doing wrong?

Please help, thanks

^Thanks. I followed your instructions. I'm not sure though, what is spoiler?

Do I place the feedzilla code in the new announcement I created named 'feedzilla'?

Do I still need to set up the widget part? I'm a little confused now.

Activate announcements and create a new announcement and add the code in it.

I don't think widgets support HTML.

Thanks! I got it to work.

The feedzilla seems to be a poor site as the feeds aren't always available.

I'm going to through this FreeWind site instead. But I'm going be needing like 10 separate widgets, each with their own code.

Can you explain what you do to the code to get it working?

That way I can do the rest myself.

If you could this one to get me started, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks Smile

hey, just thought I'd post this in case it helps anyone in the future.

I figured out the problem and it was that IE 7/8 does not like the Feedzilla code for some reason.

The one time I had gotten it to work, I remembered I was using Google Chrome. So I tried that, and now it works every time.

I thought it might just be my laptop because I've been having problems w/ IE lately, but I just found this thread where someone else had the same problem w/ IE/Feedzilla.

http://www.htmlforums.com/client-side-scripting/t-ie-issues-w-feedzilla-widget-141977.html

So, just thought you might want to sticky this bug somewhere or bulletin it, in case anyone else has the same problem. Smile

Thanks
