RSS Gadget - issue with summary and story getting out of sync.Using this gadget to display data from BBC News. All is fine to start with but after a while the summary and story start getting out of sync as you can see from the attached screen grab






Any suggestions/advice? I'm assuming the RSS feed itself is correct as it always displays correctly on initial load

Hi Richard!

Can you provide me a link to the RSS feed? Also, could you provide me a preview URL of the presentation in question?

Thanks!

Hi, I used to have the same problem, but Matt Fisher from RiseVision, suggested me to disable tranaitions and set it to none, that solve my problem, hope it works.

I'd had this problem before as well, and I wish I could still find the old thread because there was a lot of good information gathered over a fairly extensive period of trial and error.

Anyway, setting the transition to either "None" or "Fade" will solve the problem.

From what I can remember of the original problem it was caused when a new story was added to an RSS feed that was already at (or above) the total number of stories that the widget was set to display. For some reason the widget would retain either the title, or the summary, of the oldest story and because of this the Titles and Stories/Summaries would get out of sync by 1. This would keep happening every time a new story was added (which is why you will sometimes see titles that are several items removed from their correct stories.
