I am wondering if it is possible to stream a RSS news feed in the text scroller so the news feed is streaming at the bottom of the template. I have tried to layer the text scroller and the RSS content with URL but i am not seeing any scrolling either way.

Andrew,

Unfortunately it is not possible to show an RSS feed in the text scroller gadget. The only way you could do this would be to create a web page with a scrolling RSS feed, then embed that website into your presentation.

Our developers will be working on a new RSS Widget soon. I'll change this thread type to Idea and pass it along!

I don't get this. I have had a RSS feed I have had a couple work for the last several years. But suddenly they are not functioning and from several sites. Is it part of the service we pay for? We had a gadget that did the  same thing you wanted to do what Andrew asked about.

Aaron, you can use the RSS Widget to show that feed. Is that working for you?
