View Full Version : RSS From jquery

10-14-2008, 04:12 AM
If I set up an rss cache on a server, as done in the rss puasing scroller from dynamic drive, is there a way to fetch it and display it using jquery logic? I am just beginning with jquery and cannot figure how to make this to work. Does anyone know an approach to doing this?

I assume you're talking about this script (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/rsspausescroller/index.htm). Looking at the source, the script returns the RSS data as a JavaScript array, so jQuery wouldn't really be all that useful in parsing that data versus just using standard JavaScript.

Thanks much WA. Yes, that is the script. OK, the difficulty i have is that I am working in an environment where I cannot insert the javascript within the actual body of the page as it is done in that example. I cannot do so because the page is dynamically loaded elsewhere and I cannot alter the page content. So I need to use a routine within document onload (with jquery that would be document.ready) and handle the rss data and write it to the document. (I tried appending the javascript code to the document via jquery but that did not work).
