View Full Version : RSS Plugin Question/Problem in 6.0b nightly

I guess my first question is: Is the RSS plugin 'stock'?
I.E. who is responsible for it? Slimdevices? The reason
I ask is because I want to know if I should use bugzilla.

On to the problem: Is there any way to limit the number
of times an RSS feed repeats before moving onto the next
one? It seems to be ~6x and I would like 1x. Actually
now that I look it may be a time per channel which does
not seem to be adjustable either. Adjustment would be
good in either case and setting the number of repeats would
be better than a timer.

The RSS plugin does ship with the server, so definitely use Bugzilla to
file bugs. Please assign them to dave (AT) slimdevices (DOT) com.

The plugin does allow you to modify the number of items displayed per
feed when it's in screensaver mode. Go to Server Settings > Plugins in
the server web interface and look for the RSS News Ticker preferences.

I found that setting but you'll note that's not quite what I am
looking for. It is the number/time of repeating cycles per channel
rather than the number of items per channel.
