Proposed change to the RSS Widget Page Transition option

New widget seems great, has a slight random transition issue though.

I've got it set to page through 9 articles in batches of 3. At the end of the 3rd page the widget fades and restarts.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Matt,

Maybe I'm mistaken, but it sounds like it is working as expected..if there are 9 articles, and you're showing 3 each time, then after the 3rd iteration, all 9 articles have shown, so it goes back to the first iteration of 3.

Let me know if I am mistaken, and if I am, can you share a link to your Presentation?

Thanks!

Hi Robb,

Shouldn't it just continue to page through, that's what the old one did, the new one fades after 9 and starts again.

Don't worry about lack of images, they're hosted internally. RSS is on the bottom right.

Thanks

I agree with Matt, it looks awkward although it may have been designed to work this way. On the other hand, I would say show one feed at a time and make them all fade for transition. This way you would get a uniform transition appearance for your feeds. It is also hard to read such a small font size and 3 feeds at a time.

The rest of the assets on the page slide, so the RSS is uniform with them apart from that last transition.

They read fine on the intended large reception display at those font sizes, I agree they look tiny on normal displays!

Hi Matt, 

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, the way it is working now is as designed.

So what I am going to do is fork your comment above into a new idea, and update it a bit so users understand what you want to see, and if they agree, they can vote up the idea!

Thanks Robb,

No worries, that doesn't make sense to have 2 different transitions by design, the new RSS feed copes with images etc. much better but this ruins it for my use.

Thanks
Matt
