Rise Vision RSS Gadget - Layout issues

Hello,

I have been trying for several days to resize the images (using the instructions provided by Neal - http://goo.gl/y6834x) but I'm unable to make the images smaller.

What I'm trying to do is to resize an image from an RSS feed. When i try to change the image properties 
.image {            max-width: 100%;
            max-height: 100%; }
from 100% to 50%, it shifts the whole page down. I'm not sure what else to try. I'm trying to customize these files; http://goo.gl/IULfd9

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Richard,

I've alerted the developer of this gadget to this thread. Once I have some feedback from her, I will either post back or she will.

Richard,

Can I have a link to the RSS feed that you are using? If the images are embedded directly in the feed, you will not be able to resize them.

Richard,

You will not be able to resize these images since they are embedded in the RSS feed.

Thanks.

I have another question since we are on this (granted i should have included it the first time). Let me know if i need to start a new thread.

The RSS layouts have options for showing the pictures and story either side by side or picture above then story below. The later works and but the side by side doesnt. I would like to use the side by side option for better use of space. What would make it not work (pic size, rss formatting? Is there something i should do to make it work?

Let me know

Richard,

It really depends on the size of your placeholder in relation to the content in the rss feed. Sometimes it's best to experiment with the placeholder size as well as the rss layout to get it working as you would like.

Blake,

I have tried re-sizing placeholders, using different rss feeds and the result is the same (picture still appears at the top and the story below). It doesn't matter which option i choose on the widget/gadget under configuration settings. 

To come to think of it, I think that's why i wanted to re-size the images thinking that it might help with the layout/alignment issue I was running into.

Richard,

Unfortunately it looks like you're right, this is caused by the size of the images of your RSS feed. The RSS gadget has been a hot topic recently, and is due for an update. I will mention this in our next staff meeting to try and get an update. You can keep up to date on product announcements right here on our community.

Hello Blake,

Any word on this issue?

I have a site that doesnt have images embedded to the RSS and the gadget isn't pulling the images. http://noblecentralschool.ca/about/school-news/rss

Thoughts on how i can make it work?

Richard,

When I access this RSS feed through chrome with an RSS reader, I am seeing all of the image links as broken.

Sorry for the late reply. Thanks for letting me know, we are trying to figure out why they are broken.
