    Dear all,
    the plugin is great and it works properly. I use it to display result of a search query done with PubMed and getting their XML RSS link for it. It is ok for a while, but when the RSS feeds become updated (new publications are available), the plugin is no more able to display the results of the search.
    Any idea? Please, could you help me?

    Thanks for contributing the plugins … I’m trying to set a fixed height for the widget to avoid it “jumping” when the title wraps beyond one line … I’ve tried setting height to 100px for #FIFOXMLRSSFEED_CSS_WIDGET in custom.css, but this doesn’t work. I also tried adding !important, but that didn’t help. Any ideas for how I might get this to work?

    P.S., I tried adding height to the CSS for #FIFOXMLRSSFEED_CSS_WIDGET in fade-in-fade-out-xml-rss-feed.css, but that didn’t work, either.

    Disregard my question … I’m using a caching plugin and it appears I was viewing a cached version of the page. The height modification is working now.

    Hi, is it possible to update the plugin so that the user can set the maximum number of RSS items to display?

    E.g. I set the fade time and also say I only want the 5 most recent posts from the feed to be shown.

    Hi there and thank you for your plugin. I installed in today and entered the RSS feed urls (three) and get the following message in place of each feed where this Widget would show up on the website:

    failed to open stream: no suitable wrapper could be found in /homepages/19/d302355531/htdocs/pakmma/wp-content/plugins/fade-in-fade-out-xml-rss-feed/fade-in-fade-out-xml-rss-feed.php on line 52

    Can you please explain what I need to do so the feeds appear?

    Running 3.3.1 and the fades are not timed smoothly at all, no matter what I do it stays the same, first one fades in, then pops to the next headline for a split second, then blank for 2-3 seconds. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Pleasant tutorial.

    In addition to I’ve noted an incredible plugin intended for wp-ecommerce termed “WP E-commerce Authorize. Net”.

    That Plugin will allow the WP E-Commerce Store owners to accept credit cards. it can take less then 5 minutes to set up and is by far the quickest way to integrate Authorize.net.

    i think this plugin is very useful and i am also use in my website
