  • any way that this could handle multiple feeds?
  • +1 multiple feeds

    It also crashes a lot whenever odd UNICODE is present - any chance this could be redone using Magpie RSS?
  • Is there a way to make those feeds being seen by non signed-in users ?
  • Indeed, I removed the condition && $Context->Session->UserID > 0 in defaut.php line 314 - so everybody can see the feeds :)
  • The feedreader renders escaped HTML.

    All of those *escaped* HTML characters render as code.

  • That is, angle brackets are & lt ; (no spaces) and the HTML renders in the feed.
  • Thanks to Stash for the pointer - my code now looks like the real thing - notice the escaped HTML. This escaped HTML renders in feedreader and actually displays maruqees and javascript popups on my messageboard.
  • Here's a helpful little utility for creating escaped HTML.

    P.S. the text area isn't coloured white...
  • :: any way that this could handle multiple feeds? Yahoo Pipes.
  • This seems to work for multiple feeds...

    //seperate feeds with a |
    $Context->Dictionary["FeedReader.URI"] ="|"

    Line 318
    /****************************************************************************** ATTACH LIST
    if (in_array($Context->SelfUrl, array("categories.php", "index.php", "post.php")) && $Context->Session->UserID > 0) {
    $uris = $Context->GetDefinition("FeedReader.URI");
    $uris = explode('|',$uris);
    foreach ($uris as $uri){
    $frr = new FeedReaderRender($uri, $Context->GetDefinition("FeedReader.CacheTTL"));
