For several years now, we have been using Rise vision to display our school news. Our announcements came from a Weebly website and then used the RSS feed from that blog/announcements page to feed into our presentation. 
Now, with the new way RSS feeds are configured, I can not get it work any longer. 
Any ideas on why or any ideas on an easier way to display our announcements?
It would be great if I could give access to a couple of people (receptionists, principals, etc) Such as in a google doc and pull from that. A Spreadsheet perhaps?

I believe the problem you're experiencing is related to the number of stories you're trying to show on the screen at one time.  I would recommend starting with a lower number.  Based on the size of the Placeholder, it may be more realistic to choose 3 or 4 in the Items Count field.

Thanks.

That fixed it. Thank you. It was the queue vs item count (in the old rss) that threw us off.
Thank you for your help.
