    I have some question:
    First of all, what did I wrong, that it shows all rss-titles at the same time.
    The cycle-option is not working.
    Changing the css will not change anything.
    Using Joomla 2.5.9 and template with T3. Installed is the latest 2.5 version of your module.

    The third question is, can I integrate several rss-feeds in one Module?

    Maybe the last question: is there any possibility to get rid of displaying wrong symbols for umlauts (german specifics ä,ö,ü) In some feeds, it is working properly, but in some othters, the umlauts are showing as terrible eye-hurting signs.

    Thank you so much for your patience!
