Ahh one more thing. Is it possible to give it the Alt, Normal, Mo Gridrows command? I'd like to add it for a more appealing look, since the rest of my site runs them.

Ok Avandius, added the "NormGridRow" and "AltGridRow" classes into the original script.

GuildPortal has some script that makes the "MoGridRow" function, but I don't think this is working because the feed usually loads after the script makes the changes... I'll look into it if you really want this.

Alright, just recently i started getting this error.

"feed error from WARherald News"

I get that as soon as i load the page then after i click okay the feed shows up fine. It pops this error every time i go to a new link on the page with the feed.

Any idea why it is doing this?

I used the exact code you gave me to no avail.

Any ideas? Would like to use this RSS feed box but if it is throwing errors then ill have to drop it.

I'm thinking it may be because i changed some stuff in the header/footers recently?

I've been to your site numerous times and I haven't gotten an error... although I do see that the tooltips end up being behind the video you have in the box right next to the feed - I don't know the solution for this, as even the facebox will display behind embeded videos.

Ok, I've found that I only get that error on your site when I'm using Internet Explorer. And the feed still works... so might I suggest just removing the error message?

Look in the code for this part (7 lines from the bottom), and remove the crossed out part!
      document.getElementById("feedText1").innerHTML = feedText;
    } else { alert ("feed error from " + feeds[fnum][0]); }
  });
 }
}
google.setCallback(initialize);
</script>
<div id="feedText1"></div>
So you should end up with only a right bracket "}" on that line.

I know it's not the best solution, but I don't know why IE is acting retarded.

Thank you kindly, that works for now. I've seen this happen on other GP sites too.

Now the only problem left is the topics getting mixed up under the wrong titles from time to time.. maybe another IE issue though.

Oh, and is it possible to add the line that allows it to pop up in a new window?

As usual im full of questions, are you tired of me yet?

I've tried adding the "text-size: 8pt;" to everyone of the .feed's and it does nothing. I would like to make the headlines under the title small around 8pt so that they will fit better in my content box.

Hey Avandius,

If you only want to change the font size of the feed Title, then edit this line of the CSS
.feedTitle { color: #ffffff; font-size:8pt; }
If you want to change the font size of the entire box, then ADD this line:
#feedText1 {font-size:8pt;}
Change the font point size (in red) to your desired value.

I'll look into making the links open in a popup window, but I don't have the time right now.

I am having this exact same issue with the wrong feed getting mixed up under the wrong titles.  Here are the feeds i'm using...

feeds.push (["BluesTracker","http://www.wowblues.com/feed.xml",10]);
feeds.push (["WoW Insider","http://www.wowinsider.com/rss.xml",10]);
feeds.push (["WoW Interface","http://www.wowinterface.com/rss/news.xml",10]);

I am using IE6 when I am seeing this.  Not sure if its limited to it only, I havent' had a chance to test it in FF.  And... Avandius is right... once you refresh the page it fixes it.
