Hi all,

I apologize, but I am not the most sophisticated with this stuff, but have been managing out Church's digital signage for a while now, and am looking to make some improvements.

With the new changes to widgets, and what appeared to be a move away from the gadgets, specifically the photo album/MRSS gadget, I am looking for a way to keep a image slide show synced.

Our current implementation uses some custom scripting to create an MRSS feed from a folder from our internal server. Previously we were using an old version of picasa running on a computer in a closet to keep some picasa folders synced with our internal server folders.

We do have som developers I can speak to, but I am not sure what to ask them.

I am looking for a way to keep some folders on our servers synced to the RV Storage for use with the Image Folder Widget. 

I am trying to maintain some workflow for our graphic guy and ideal need:
>Graphic designer places content in our server folders (changes made daily)
>Server folder automagically syncs with RV storage (THE MISSING PIECE)
>RV Image Folder Widget embedded in presentation shows content as a slide show

Does anyone have a suggestion for me? I thought our MRSS feed was going to be the solution, but it is more choppy than the picasa, and sometimes doesn't work on some displays.

Or am I missing something? Is there a widget that will create a slideshow out of a folder of images on a web server?

Thanks so much for anyones suggestions/direction/or even just buzzwords to tell our developer.

-Sean

Sean,

I'll get one of our storage developers to look at this thread as soon as possible and see if they can point you in the right direction. Thanks for the question!
Hi,
   May I know whether there is a solution to this?

I would also like to use a folder on a web server. My rise storage has no editing features. I can on my other storage apps. I'd like to be able to use folders from other apps until rise updates their storage features. Thanks.

Thanks for that comment Kathi Jo! That functionality doesn't exist at the moment, but we will be sure to announce if it is introduced.

Thanks!
